Hi Moodlers,

I have made a short screen cast on the progress I am making with the Shoehorn theme (https://github.com/gjb2048/moodle-theme_shoehorn):


Cheers,

Hi Mary,

I use the pro version of BB Flashback (http://www.bbsoftware.co.uk/bbflashback.aspx).  Really good smile.

The course tiles will reduce the SOD when you have lots of courses but it does not have the need to hover over to see the name as Elegance has.

Cheers,

Gareth

Hi Gareth, 

I really like your work and now I begin to regret we have not won your iMoot competition...

I especially like the idea of Activity tiles. Many of our teachers are using the Grid format and this is exactly what one teacher working on a tablet suggested -- the possibility to have a Grid within a section of a course (not only on a course homepage) to make the whole course more touch-friendly. There is one thing I have not completely understood from the video -- is having acitivity/resourse tiles a setting you can turn on and off in a course as a teacher (like the grid course format), or is it a default of the theme that the teacher cannot change?

BTW, in the GitHub link you provided, there is an extra ":". I see you have a new version for 2.7, I'll try to install it in our test 2.7 installation and try it out.

Hi Lenka,

Thank you.

The setting is a part of the theme and can only be changed by an administrator.  To be changed by a teacher in the course it would have to be a course format setting and the CSS therefore within it.

The auto-linking code must have added the colon to the link as its the port delimiter in a URL, so here it is without it: https://github.com/gjb2048/moodle-theme_shoehorn

Cheers,

Gareth
