Moodle 1.9.x themes DO NOT WORK in Moodle 2.x.x

Aardvark 1.5 - Aquarium (Original)
Aardvark 1.5

From: Shaun Daubney
Requires: Moodle 1.9.x


Sorry, this theme is no longer available. Since upgrading to 2.1 I have (accidentally) lost all of the previous themes that were sitting on the server. The download link above will however download you a copy of my final customised theme backup from before the upgrade, you will have to do a fair bit of work to modify it though. Sorry.

If you have Moodle 2.0 or above, you can access the new version of the theme here




Based on my previous "Alternatives" themeset.

This theme has a fixed width. To remove the fixed width, delete "max-width: 960px;" in aardvark.css


Pro 1.5 (Aquarium) - Released 30/07/2010

Only cosmetic changes to give it a slightly softer, more 2010 look, nothing major or technical. The white backgrounds behind the profileblock text have gone and been replaced with a semi-transparent background for the whole block.

  • .../images - updated a number of graphics to a new cool blue theme
  • header.html - added <html xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml"> for Facebook module
  • aardvark.css - .sideblock h2 / padding-top changed to 12px
  • aardvark.css - .sideblock h2 / font-weight added and set to normal
  • aardvark.css - various cosmetic changes to YUI Menubar properties
  • aardvark.css - various cosmetic changes to ProfileBlock properties

This theme will continue to be developed. If you like this theme and use it yourself, please let me know what types of modifications you make on the Moodle forums, I'd love to see them and maybe pinch some ideas for mine. Also always grateful to receive credit where credit's due.

    I downloaded this but did not have the log in boxes. The version I just downloaded using the download link was the version in the screen shot on this page.
