Hi Karthic,

Although I'm not Mary, I suspect that the first thing she'd suggest is that you follow the guide on how to clone a Moodle 2 theme in the Moodle docs - depending on which version of Moodle you're using (which you haven't specified), you might need either the Moodle 2.0 version or the Moodle 2.2 version.  If you've followed the guide and are still having trouble, please post more detail of the specific problem(s) you're encountering and what you've already tried,

-Paul

P.S.  Unless Mary has prior knowledge of your situation and is therefore more likely to be able to help than anyone else, don't address your posts to Mary - there are lots of people here who can help, but if you address a single person, you might find that everybody else ignores your post because they think it's part of a conversation with that person.

Hi Karthic,

Moodle 2.x.x is not the same as Moodle 1.9 so your idea of just copying files and renaming the folder as in Moodle 1.9 will not work in Moodle 2, it's just not that simple!

As Paul suggests you could try reading the Tutorials listed in the header of this Theme's Forum.

Cheers

Mary

Karthic,

You do not appear to even have looked at the Tutorials let alone try to follow them, so why should either Paul or I waste our time rewriting those tutorials here just for you!

The tutorial you need to follow is THIS ONE this is one I wrote.

Mary
