Julian Ridden’s Bootstrap-based Essential theme is a really great looking theme for your Moodle 2.5 site. It’s very clean and modern looking and provides a host of customization options to make the them your own. Here’s a list of the fixes and updates you’ll see in the latest version:
- New Settings screen just for color selection
- Marketing Spots on homepage can now have images added. These will automatically be sized to fit by the theme.
- Can now upload your own page background image
- Can now set colors for footer region
- Cleanup of required images (Theme now only uses 4 images)
- Performance info now neatly formatted.
- Fixed Custom Menu color in IE8 and IE9
- Can now upload optional images into the marketing spots
- Now available in English, German, Russian, Turkish and Spanish (many thanks to the Moodle Community for translating)
- New Pinterest, Instagram, Skype and the Russian VK social networks added.
- Can now add links to Mobile apps on the iOS App Store and Google Play
- New formatting on login block
- A plethora of minor CSS Fixes
Such a great looking theme that I’m considering dropping WordPress for a client’s front end site and using only the Essential theme and Moodle as our website. Testament that Essential is a very un-Moodley Moodle.
