A NEW THEME FOR MOODLE 2.8 WHICH HAS NOW BEEN APPROVED (RC1)
'Morecandy' based on the 'More' theme, is a relatively simple looking theme that has sideway block headers which work when the blocks are expanded, and then returned to a normal header when collapsed.
'Morecandy' also allows Admins to add a Carousel (slideshow) in the Frontpage site topic area using the Text Editor to add the HTML plus upload images for the slider.
'Morecandy' also makes use of a custom menu on the frontpage that is added, and edited, in the theme itself. Please note that this is secondary to the main Custom menu generally found in Site Administration > Apperance > Themes > Theme settings page. There will be some documentation about this and other features of this theme.
Thanks for reading,
Have a Happy Easter
