Tárgy: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY
 

Hi,

I have a question/problem. Our students are not using left and right side blocks only on the frontpage . If there is no blocks on the frontpage will be an empty space next to the "My courses" (see the attachment).
I think the block what is visible to admin users only, the problem is similar.

Can you help me how can I set (setting or css, php) automatic width (without the "hide blocks" function clicking)

 

Regards
Somogyi J.

Re: Tárgy: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY

I was testing these issues and the problem is that moodle keeps the default blocks region in the hidden region.

In the main region, the blocks builder uses three columns from the BS grid and keep one column for the blocks. If you remove the blocks, moodle still shows the empty column for the blocks. It is difficult to know if there are blocks in the region.

Using the hide/display block, this block columns is hide/displayed doesn't matter if there are blocks or not.

If there are no blocks in the site then probably better to hide the blocks using the internal variable hardcoding the value in the header.php.

Anyway I will open an issue in our tracker to try to improve this behaviour.

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY
 

Hi Guys,

Really like this theme and hope to use it on a few sites that I look after.

I am having trouble getting the slider to work. I have tried all the different slider setting available, different size/format images, purging all cache etc but the slider just will not appear on my front page.

I am not sure what I am missing here. When I was playing with the BCU theme (which lead me to adaptable) I had no problems with the slider, so I am not sure why my slider is not working in adaptable.

Any ideas or advice would be appreciated.

The site I am testing this theme on is:

http://moodle.lism.catholic.edu.au/testing_to/

Thanks,
Chris

Done a bit of playing around and sorted out my slider issue.

Disabling the ticker allowed my slider to work. Which brings my to  my next question, is it possible to have both the ticker and the slider?

Yes, Adaptable works with all the elements enabled. See https://3-bits.com/demo/adaptable/

Verify that all the settings are correct and you don't have any plugin that can break the Javascript. The slideshow is not working, so probably you the problem is Javascript.

Box Shadow
Group Plugin developers

When applying a box shadow to the frontpage marketing blocks using custom css:

.cblock {
    text-align:center;
    color: #ffffff;
    height: 240px;
    padding: 7px;
    box-shadow: 0 4px 3px -3px #555;

The box shadow will appear on a row 3,3,3,3 but not on a row 4,4,4 see below. How can this be fixed?

shadow is not related with the row you add the block. So probably is some code mistake.

The div container should include the background-color and also the classes you want to apply to the block.

Re: Box Shadow

So .... If I make that row of Marketing blocks back to 3,3,3,3 then the box shadow works. I tried your code Fernando and got no joy. Strangely when looking at the Marketing blocks edit page the box shadow shows clearly, but when the changes are saved they do not appear on the frontpage when the row is 4,4,4 even with caches purged etc.

See screenshot below when row is back to 3,3,3,3

Editing mode with marketing block row set to 4,4,4

Re: Box Shadow

So, after seeing your post, I realized that I wanted a shadow and a hover effect!  This is what I have done to achieve it.

Custom CSS:

#marketblocks .covtiles {
box-shadow: 4px 4px 3px -2px #555;
}
#marketblocks .covtiles :hover {
background-color: #cccccc;
}


Then in my text, I made the whole thing a link with the following:

<a href="http://myurl.org"><span style="display:block;text-align:left; padding: 15px;">

    <i class="fa fa-calendar fa-4x"></i>

    <h3 style="color: #333333;">2016-2017 Schedule</h3>

    <span style="text-align:left;">High School registrations are due! Click Here to view the proposed schedule for 2016/2017</span></span></a>


Not sure if that helps you...

Re: Box Shadow

Thanks all for the help, however IF I make no changes to the code that I have used but change the Market block layout to 6 + 3 + 3  or 3 + 6 + 3 then all works fine. See below for an example

As soon as I change to a block layout with a 4 in e.g. 4 + 8 it's the "4" block that loses the box -shadow see below.

Bar the different image and link to course pages, all the blocks have the same code. In the previous screenshots no code was changed, just the block layout.

Re: Box Shadow

The class is missing from the span?

Also why are you using inline styles? That's really bad practice.

Also you cannot add a div inside an <a></a> tag.

You have a div that has no class yet is styled. Again this is bad practice.

Why are you doing all this?

This is all contrary to how bootstrap works for goodness sake!

if you want things to look good use classes with semantic names unvented if you create your own

Not sure. I believe that's how Moodle wrote the code initially via the wysiwyg and I added in some other bits but which I can't honestly remember. I'll look at tidying it up tomorrow when I get a chance.

In that case you need a whole new set of marketing layouts that once added get styled automatically. Also use TinyMCE editor as this is much easier to manage than the default ATTO which is pretty basic at best!

Re: Box Shadow
Group Core developersGroup Documentation writersGroup Particularly helpful MoodlersGroup Plugin developersGroup Testers

Hi Colin,

Sorry if I sounded a bit sharp yesterday, its just that I was using my iPad Mini to view the forum posts and the HTML you had posted using seemed odd in the small screen, and my eyes are not as sharp as they used to be, and I was tired.. But giving it some extra thought this morning, perhaps it isn't as bad as what I was thinking last night. The spans are from the editor I take it? Which is why there are problems. It's ATTO that is screwing this up, as Fernando pointed out, it is missing some classes which need to be in.

If you have not already done it, try changing your Preferences and select the TiniMCE editor. There are more styling options available, and I think you will find it easer to use.

In the mean time I am going to try an idea I have with the way Adaptable displays the blocks, as I suspect you could get away with adding only one full width block region and add just one  HTML block in it and then add your preferred page layout of Marketing items like I mentioned in one of my earlier Look and Learn tutorials?

It's just an idea and may not work but I will test it out anyway, as I have not had that much time to play with the Adaptable theme.

Cheers

Mary

Your opinion is always appreciated, that's why I ask! I will try TINYMCE again, you are correct ATTO is so limited in it's functionality and I'm not a fan either. Keep up the great work, muppet teachers like myself who can code (a bit) are always appreciative of your help.

Re: Box Shadow

Colin,

I made some tests and you are right. From some unknown reason if the block is span4 the shadow is not applied. I've tested using a class and also inline and no luck.

I will try to know what happens because when using inline style, the code is removed.


 
Average of ratings: -

Re: Box Shadow
Group Particularly helpful MoodlersGroup Plugin developersGroup Testers

I could made more tests and for the moment the first conclusion is:

NEVER use Atto as an HTML editor. Only for text. Atto is really a crap when you want to code HTML because any syntax error will break the while code and also strip many tags or attributes. br>

As a workaround, use a class instead inline styles. For testing I created a class named shadowmk to add the shadow style:

.shadowmk {
box-shadow: 10px 10px 5px 0px rgba(0,0,0,0.75);
}

And for the moment try to avoid a layout with span4 (all the layouts that include a 4). The issue is located in some point of the rendering because even using the class, and verify is added to the box using Firebug, the style is not applied. That's really weird and I need to verify the render to see why a span4 is not applying even the class.

I will work on it asap.

Thanks for your collaboration.

Colin, all the opposite, thanks to the users support we can continue this amazing development. And a bit crazy sometimes.

The aim of Adaptable is to adapt a moodle theme to all the needs. The idea is really complex and development even more. So bugs are there waiting to be discovered.

We are working now in site title issue and trying to know what happens when you apply a box-shadow to a span4.

If we can fix all the issues then will publish a new version next Monday.

I had the same problem and then used another theme, because I did not get any response.

When I upgraded another Moodle site yesterday I found a php error that could be the solution to your current problem.

Make sure your run 6.5 or higher on your moodle,  when I upgraded my php everything changed and worked.

On CPanel select a higher version of php for that application.

Make sure you edit the htaccess file with the correct info too.


AddHandler application/x-httpd-php56 .php .php5 .php4 .php3

Mignon, sorry to read you never getting any response. by PHP you meant 5.6 (rather than 65) as latest versions require 5.6+ but as her's 2.9, so should be OK on 5.4 as well. as long as one's moodle is working fine on PHP, all themes/plug-ins should as well work fine as it's the core (moodle) that is dependent on PHP versions as long as it's working fine, everything should as well.

Fernando;

This issue of going white has now happened three times to me on a new site I am putting up.  It is a moodle 3.2 site and just suddenly went white except for the top portion.  through hitting the back buton I could get menus to show up on the right column but when I clicked anything that had content it would go to the blank page again.  I uninstalled moodle as it was a new site and tried again.  It worked for about 90 minutes and happened again.  May not be involved but it was right after enrolling a student in a class.  Uninstalled again, then tried an 2.9 install with the appropriate theme file and it happened a third time.

Any advice is appreciated.

Themes, not only Adaptable, are working for 90 minutes and then crash. So you should have another reason to crash the site apart the theme.

Review extensions and server resources.

Is it a shared hosting? Did you enable the Debugger? Did you verify the error_log?

It is not possible for the moment to change the number of course tiles or show the course tiles by categories.

You can modify the existing render to get the result expected but you probably will need to modify some styles.

The only workaround is to display the courses using the default moodle list.

Resource icons

The current theme uses the resource icons from moodle/pix/f. These can be overridden by adding new .png files into adaptable\pix_core\f.

How can these icons be replaced with an svg set though? Love this theme, however I'm trying to make it as similar to other web based systems that school use.


Thanks in advance.

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY

I would suspect by adding only svg files in your pix_core / f directory.

Try it with just one svg file with the name of one of the resource icons. If it gets picked up then that's the way to go.

It's trial and error most of the time whatever you do with Moodle, especially if there is no one willing to give you a definite answer.

I don't know I'm just guessing.

On the other hand if you are looking for svg files of the same icons, You will probably be able to find some on the web?

Edit....

Checkout Bootstrapcase/pix/fo directory 

These are svg files for the file picker.

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY

Mary,

I see what you mean. I always thought that the icons had a standard name however for example file.png or file.svg. The icons from Snap in pix_core\f are named differently to those in moodle/pix_core/f where the .png files have many different sized versions. So now to figure out how to increase the size of svg icons used in a course page for resources etc as well as naming them to match the default file selected by the Adaptable theme which would appear to be the filename-24.extension.

Adaptable uses Font-Awesome icons so you can add icons using the samples from FA:

Just take care and DO NOT USE Atto as editor. Use TinyMCE instead.

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY

It depends where you want to add the font icons?

Generally you can add them anywhere you have access to the text editor. As Fernando mentioned you need to select the TinyMCE editor in user preferences from your user menu in the header.

You need to add the code in the HTML part of the editor, using the method shown in the  examples Fernando pointed to, in the link he posted in his comment earlier.

Hope this helps?

Thanks Lynn to use Adaptable in your moodle project.

This is correct. If you upload a logo then the title is disabled.

In that case, use the custom title and add the image file there. It is a HTML editor so you can add any content. For example, our code:

adaptable<br>
<span style="font-size: 20px;">the most adaptable moodle theme</span>


then will display title and sub-title below:



You can add an image before the text to get the design needed.

For some reason the last item in the breadcrumb is not displaying, not matter which page I'm on. Have checked the colours again , but this doesn't appear to be the issue.

Hi Fernando,

Found the problem, for some reason the last item in the breadcrumb was being styled liked this:

.breadcrumb li.lastli a span {

  display: none !important;

}


I've added the following additional CSS and now it's visible, not sure if this is a good solution but it seems to work:


.breadcrumb li.lastli a span {

  display: inline !important;

}

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY
 

I was having this same problem:  course names were not showing up on whatever settings I changed.  I should also say I had the same issue in Moodle 3.1 with BCU - but not clean so it is a theme issue rather than a "Moodle" setting issue I think.

Either way I found the same solution.   In moodle/theme/adaptable/style/adaptable.css line 674 it has:

.breadcrumb li.lastli a span {

  display: none !important; 

}

changing this to inline (or indeed just commenting this out!) showed the last item in the breadcrumbs.  As has been described before the title would flash up briefly before being hidden.   

If this is corrected by a setting instead of the css I do not know where.

I hope this is helpful.

Note:  as I say I found the same issue in BCU with 3.1 (although I have had other problems with BCU anyway and I plan to move to adaptable this year for our default theme).   In BCU this was in moodle/theme/bcu/style/custom.css line 458 - the same display: none !important.  I should add that in 2.9.5+ with adaptable or bcu I do NOT have this issue even though the same code is present so it must be a change in Moodle between then and 3.1.   It maybe a new setting I have not seen.  However upgrading the same database from 2.9.5 to 3.1 has this problem so I do not think it can be a setting that exists in 2.9.5 or this would still be the same.

I have been testing this issue and you are right. This class is inherited from BCU and after rewrite the breadcrumb looks it has impact in the new styles.

Removing the class is enough. Inline is not needed.

I will add an issue in our tracker to be fixed in the next release.


BTW, BCU shouldn't be used in latest moodle versions because have many bugs that can crash the site.

Hi, Fernando.

I have this issue too, since I installed Adaptable by upgrading from BCU (on a Moodle 3.1 server). 

How/where do I remove that class that you mention, and which class needs to be removed?  I would appreciate your help with this.

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY
Group Particularly helpful MoodlersGroup Plugin developersGroup Testers

I will explain how it works and I hope it was the last time. There are two main options:


1. If you add a logo then the LOGO image is displayed ALWAYS in the header

2. If you add a TITLE you have two options:

2.1. If you add the DEFAULT MOODLE TITLE then the site title (from Front Page settings) is displayed in the front page and the course title in the courses page

2.2 If you add a custom title then is ALWAYS displayed. In this case, you can add an image in the title or any HTML content. Yesterday I posted a sample of code you can use.


If you want to propose another option, then you can request it in the Bitbucket repository and we will decide if could be added it or not. And in any case, you are free to modify the Adaptable code to fit your needs by yourself or contact us for the customization.

Hope the workflow is now clear.

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY
 

Thank you very much for your reply,

What I understand from your workflow is that when a Logo is added, and the default site title is selected, they should both appear, and when entering a course, the course title should appear.

This is currently what isn't happening. When the logo file is deleted, the site title shows again correctly, but as soon as a logo file is uploaded, all titles disappear. 

Here is a link to a PDF with the three errors. The first shows the lack of title. The second shows the settings. I have confirmed there is no phantom <p></p> in the title box as well. The third shows the html code from the chrome inspector.

Sorry if I didn't explain well. I will repeat again.

If you add a logo, no other options for the header. Or logo or title. Adaptable CAN'T display both.

If you want to display logo and title then create your own using the custom title.


The existing workflow is CORRECT. Howewer IT IS NOT A BUG.

Fernando,

I think the confusion is that it used to be able to show both.  See images below with Adaptable Version 1.2.1 where the logo is the image to the left and the text is the Course Title.  The second image is showing the logo to the left and a Custom Site title showing that it was possible to have a Custom Site Title and still show Course Titles as well as a logo. 

I know that I for one would like this behavior back if possible.

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY

Emma, this feature was already changed in v1.2.2. Mainly because there are many problems with the header due the high complexity and the number of elements located there.

I will open an issue to try to recover this feature. We have many users that have a long site title or course title and display all the elements is really difficult.

I understand - it is pretty much impossible to make some things work with all the variations out there but thank you for considering it at least!!

I have 1.2.1 working so well on my main site, I will probably just stick with it for a while but I am trying to get the latest version looking the same in the meantime.  You already gave me the fixed header code fix - is the code still there for this too or did you take it out altogether?

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY
 

I would like also like this feature back.  The great thing about how the previous version worked is that the logo would appear on all pages but the title changed based on where you are (eg: site title on home page, name on dashboard, course name in a course). 

I am trying to replicate this but I can't (yet).  We are about to upgrade to 3.1 and the previous version of adaptable wasn't working on 3.1 so we have had to upgrade.

Now not sure whether to go for title or logo (I need both!) or switch to a different theme (which I am not keen on).

Still playing and see if my skills enable me to use one of the workarounds!

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY
 

Hello Fernando,

Thank you for your good work on the Adaptable theme. I am working to implement it on my Moodle site.

A more simple way to accomplish showing a logo AND the site text would be to be able to use an image in the background of the lower header.

I have been looking for the CSS code for the lower header and have not yet found the correct one.

If we could use an image as the background of the lower header, we could design a background image that could place an image above the text box.  Then the text box could overlay the background and we could solve the problem of having to choose between a logo and the site text.

If you could tell me how to do this, it would be appreciated by all.

Clarence

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY

If you want to add image and text in the header, just use the custom text title. It is the easiest way. Or use the classical way: add the title to the image. 

If you image is larger than the allowed size you can change the id in the Custom CSS box to allow more width.

Notice that you can have some issues in mobile devices if the width image is too large.

#logo {
    max-width: 600px;
}


where 600px is the image width.

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY
 

Hello Fernando,

Here is some CSS code that can be added to the Custom CSS that will allow both a LOGO and the SITE TEXT.

Someone else may be interested in this capability.

  1. Change the Site Text and Course Text sizes to 24 instead of 48
  2. Remove your logo file from Adaptable/Header/Logo
  3. Set Adaptable/Header/Header Course Title to  "Course Full Name"
  4. Set Adaptable/Header/Course Title Maximum Width  to 89% or as wide as you need.
  5. Add the following to the Custom CSS box:

    To overlay the color background with a banner image:
    #page-header    { color: setting:headertextcolor2; background: url("") no-repeat; visibility: visible; margin-top: 0; width: 100%;  clear: both; }

    To adjust the title container position under the banner:
    #titlecontainer  { margin-top: 60px;  padding-top: 10px }

    To position the Social Icons below the banner:
    .socialbox  { font-size: setting:socialsize; padding-top: 60px; padding-bottom: 3px }

You will have to adjust the margins, etc. to fit the size of your banner image.

You can see how this looks at https://www.musapp.com/music

Hope this helps,

Clarence

"You are logged in as" not displaying
 

We are working with Moodle 3.1 using the Adaptable Theme.

We'd like something like the following to display after the user selects the option to log in as a guest.

    "You are currently using guest access (Log in)"

Right now, even after logging in as a guest, the button is displayed in the top right with no change and still says "Log in" which may be confusing to users.

Any ideas on how to make this happen?

Re: "You are logged in as" not displaying
Group Particularly helpful MoodlersGroup Plugin developersGroup Testers

Since you are not logged in, the log in button is displayed. This is correct because the guest access doesn't mean you are authenticated. The login box and the login button are Adaptable features and are displayed correctly.

You can remove the header login and add a login block. And you can add a message in the block to remember they are using the guest access. That could be a workaround.

We don't have plans to add any message for guests users for the moment.

And there is no header.php file in the layout folder for the Clean theme.  Can you direct me to the appropriate file or provide the necessary code?

Hi,

If you are finding that the icons which you are adding are not working as you want them to, then it may be that Adaptable is using an older version of that font than the one listed in the Font Awesome Cheatsheet Page.

Can you post the icon code you are using for both the normal way and also the ones you use in the filter?

How are you using FA filter with version 4.6.3 and the FA used is 3.2.1 (what never been used by Adaptable)?

The right link in Adaptable is:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://your_moodle/adaptable/theme/adaptable/style/font-awesome.min.css">

Could you post the content of line 7 from front page?

Open the link and you coild see:

/*!
 *  Font Awesome 4.6.1 by @davegandy - http://fontawesome.io - @fontawesome
 *  License - http://fontawesome.io/license (Font: SIL OFL 1.1, CSS: MIT License)
 */@font-face{font-family:'FontAwesome';src:url('../fonts/fontawesome-webfont.eot?v=4.6.1')

So the version used is 4.6.1. The new version 4.6.3 will be available soon.

Hi,

The FontAwesome filter allows you to add icons in the page headers, if you set up your Moodle up correctly as explained in the filter.

If you do not use it for this then you do not need it.

If you want to add to that CSS file then you need to download it to your computer and open it with a text editor.  However the fact it is minified it will not be easy to alter so you may be better to create a new css file that contains all the 4.6.3 CSS that you can download from the FontAwesome site. call it fontawesome.css and add it to the style directory then add the link to it in the head of the page like the minified one is.

That is only a suggestion, and not one to do if you do not know what you are doing!

This is not from Adaptable. Adaptable uses version 4.6.1 so you are mixing FA versions and now the site is totally messy.

What do you mean "to get all icons work"? What is latest version? Please, post the number version.

Adaptable includes the icons files. If you can't see the icons then there are two options:

  • The fonts folders has not enough access rights
  • Adaptable is old and can't download the fonts from the CDN (or the server has no access to the CDN)


The Awesome filter has any relationship with Adaptable so clearly you have some general problem in your moodle site.

There is a setting in Administration > Frontpage settings which allows you to set the number of courses to be displayed on the Frontpage. The Course Overview block is only displayed on the Dashboard page which some Moodle sites refer to as the frontpage because that is the page they see after they log in. So depending on your site preferences it would be up to you which setting you choose to alter.

Hope this helps?

if you need to add that rule then the layout is missing desktop-first-column which adds the css margin-left: 0

so check the layout that the login page uses.

Mary, we are working in the layouts because the inherited code from BCU has many problems.

I don't have any estimated time to publish this changes due the complexity of the different layouts.

Anyway, I tested with several number of blocks the login page (column1) and the rest and I don't see any difference. And never seen before this issue and even trying to add more content in the footer I can't replicate it. So I guess the problem is some image or code that breaks the span grid.

OK...no problem.

I'll look and see if I can create new layouts for my own copy of Adaptable based on that which is in Bootstrapbase.

Is there any way to change the order of the navbar menu, i've looked in the renderers and header_navbar_menu.php but cannot find a way to do this, maybe i've overlooked it?

The Navbar menu is located in renderers.php:

https://bitbucket.org/covuni/moodle-theme_adaptable/src/e57dae12d0750fb6ffde70b7ebb8dcd1a6606c4d/renderers.php?at=master&fileviewer=file-view-default#renderers.php-966

You can change there the items order from that line.

Keep in mind that any Adaptable update will override the changes.

I tried to update the adaptable theme to the latest version 1.2.3 (2016052900) in my Site but it breaks the header (logo disappears and Site name shows incomplete (adding ...). The same happens to every course: shows the Site name incomplete without the logo instead of showing the logo and the name of the course). My Moodle version is 3.0.4 (Build: 20160509).

Sorry for my english and thanks in advance!

The title text length is a setting that you can change in the Header section. By default is 50% and you can change it to 70%-80% to display the complete title.

The logo in the title depends of Display site title and the logo. If you add the logo, the setting is disabled. If you do not add the logo then the title setting  is enabled.

Thanks for the answer Fernando. My problem is that with version 1.2.1 (haven't tried 1.2.2) the Site logo and the whole Site title were shown at the same time. And the title was configured to 50%. Now, with this version, it won't show the logo and Site name. And if the Site name only is shown, it is shown incomplete even with the 80% setting. Even more, in that case, once you enter any course the incomplete version of the Site title is displayed instead of the course name as before.

Thanks again for your help Fernando! Very appreciated!

Hi Will,

Those are not really theme features but there are other plugins you could look at:

The Bootstrap Elements plugin (which works with Adaptable) will allow you to add Modal popups with images / video into course pages:

https://moodle.org/plugins/mod_bootstrapelements

There are a couple of minor glitches that need to be fixed for later Moodle versions which I have fixes for somewhere.

It would also be worth taking a look at the Media Gallery plugin set:

Not specific to the Adaptable theme, but I use

https://html5box.com/

on various moodles. There is a free version (most people use) that works but has the watermark to html5box in the top left corner - or for a very small one off payment you can have a version without the watermark.

Beauty of this is it will work with any themes - should you change in the future or if you have different themes for different courses or you allow users to select their own theme.

I think there are some tutorial in Moodle Docs about how to clone a theme. In this case, Adaptable could be really difficult to clone it but you can try. You must replace all the adaptable instances for your theme name. There are hundred and almost all the files have at least one. Take care because some instances related to functions can break the whole site.

Adaptable is very complex and a simple theme title replace is not enough because some libraries shouldn't be renamed.

Hi.

If you want to clone Adaptable theme follow this steps.
I suggest you to use Brackets editor.

If you want create a theme with name mytheme you must:

1) Modify all "adaptable" (lowercase) occurrences with "mytheme"
2) Modify all "Adaptable" (uppercase) occurrences with "My Theme"
3) Modify the name of adaptable.js to mytheme.js
4) Modify the name of adaptable.css to mytheme.css
5) In lang folder modify every lang file name  from theme_adaptable.php to theme_mytheme.php

With Brackets editor you can modify easily all occurences in the whole theme with "Replace in files" function. Remember to activate the case sensitive search (the "Aa" button on the right of search field) and replace the occurrences as explained in points 1) and 2),


Install theme as usual and you will find the cloned theme fully functional and ready to use!

According to the YouTube video, you can have each course display it's own tile/pic on the front page of the Adaptable theme. I haven't been able to figure out how to do this. 

Is there something I'm missing in the site admin pages to set this up?

If you bear in mind that the term "Marketing Blocks" is something of a misnomer and that these blocks can be used for any link you care to establish (including courses) this should get you going in the right direction!

The other "sneaky" secret is that, when locating these blocks the dropdown just shows a bunch of "Market" items. You have to image that the topmost is location 1, next is 2, then 3, and so on and that the grid you've set up is number left to right, top to bottom. You also have to be sure the position on Front Page and on THis Page match.

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY
 

So far no luck with that. 

I've place a picture into the Course Administration/Edit Settings/Course Summary but it's still showing the default tile picture I put in and not the individual course sad

Is the Course Setting you're referring to somewhere else? 

I found this info when I did a search in the Site Administration for Course Settings. It appears to say I need to work the HTML for the pics to show up

Overriding category images in a course

If you wish to override the category course title image in a course when this is enabled with the 'enablecategorycti' setting, then edit the course summary in the course settings and add an image. Then edit in HTML mode, remove the surrounding 'p' tags and 'br' tag, then remove the 'style', 'width' and 'height' attributes and any 'classes' added by the text editor on the 'img' tag. Then add the class 'categorycti'. To specifiy the height (px) and the contained title text colour, background colour and opacity, use the following attributes: 'ctih', 'ctit', 'ctib' and 'ctio' respectively, for example:

<img src="https://mymoodleinstall.me/pluginfile.php/493/course/section/237/myimage.jpg" alt="Replacement image" class="categorycti" ctih="250" ctit="#afafaf" ctib="#222222" ctio="0.5">

This image will not be shown in the summary itself when viewing the list of courses.


Thanks

Running Adaptable 1.2.3 on Moodle 3.1. 


Now that we have populated the site with real teachers and students, we are finding that not all of the open enrolled courses are showing up in the "My Courses" menu for certain users. I can't seem to find a pattern. For instance, I have two students enrolled in identical courses. One has a correct "My Courses"  dropdown, and one inexplicably shows "no enrolled courses." I also have two teachers assigned to the same course. One sees that course in the dropdown and one does not. I cannot figure out why.

The courses order is a moodle feature. You can select the order in Site Administration > Courses. There you can select the order to display the courses in the frontpage or in the menu.

What Adaptable can do, and it is the only theme that can do it, is display the courses in a menu and old courses where the student was enrolled, in a sub-menu using the options in the screenshot.

This is a non-standard moodle block so it could have its own styles. Take a look to the folder to find the style.css file.

The default style is this:

.block .content a,
.block .content li a,
.block .content td a {
color: #009688; /* Replace the colour code */
}

In some cases the block can use a prefix to apply a different style. Sorry but I don't have this block and can't test it.

Re: [ADAPTABLE] My Courses block on home page
 

Hi


The change in style is also not happening on a category page (which I believe is core). It used to turn grey and italic and now there is no visual difference between a live and shown course.

This is an example link to a category page: https://ADDYOURMOODLESITEADDRESS/course/index.php?categoryid=1 which you can view on your own sites.  To replicate you could also go to site admin / courses / manage courses and categories and use the eye to hide / unhide and you won't see any style difference.

I can't seem to be able to change this in the adaptable theme colours.

This issue happens after upgrading to Adaptable: 1.3 (2016121300). on both  Moodle 3.1.3+ (Build: 20161222) and Moodle 3.0.7+ (Build: 20161202)

Re: [ADAPTABLE] My Courses block on home page
Group Documentation writersGroup Particularly helpful Moodlers

Fernando,

I can verify what Rebecca is saying. The hidden course and category names are not being properly dimmed in standard blocks or in the frontpage standard course listings.

Somewhere all the standard .dimmed classes are being overridden and the default of #999 is ignored and set to the same as other links.

A workaround for this is to copy the standard css for all the dimmings and add an !important to promote it. So:

a.dimmed, a.dimmed:link, a.dimmed:visited, a.dimmed_text, a.dimmed_text:link, a.dimmed_text:visited, .dimmed_text, .dimmed_text a, .dimmed_text a:link, .dimmed_text a:visited, .usersuspended, .usersuspended a, .usersuspended a:link, .usersuspended a:visited, .dimmed_category, .dimmed_category a {
    color: #999 !important;
}


This is happening in 1.3.1.1, build 2017012300 but was also happening in the previous build as well.

There are no settings in Adaptable to customize the course list.

It uses the default moodle layout and styles. So you must modify it using CSS and adding the styles to the Custom CSS box.

You can use Firebug to find the class or id applied to the box, then modify the code and add it to:

Site administration > Appearance > Themes > Adaptable > Custom CSS & JS


For example, to change the background colour:

.courses .coursebox.even,
.courses .coursebox {
background: #xxxxxx none repeat scroll 0 0 !important
}

Where #xxxxxx is the colur to apply

Hi Raymond - yes the Adaptable theme support the grid layout - you just need to install the grid layout plugin:

Adaptable, and any other theme, can use Grid format or any other format.

But you probably will need to adapt some styles because course formats have their own.

Actually Adaptable support topics/weeks and Social Wall formats. Probably more in the future.

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY
 
We are using the grid format with the Adaptable theme and it has been working for the past 12 months but since we have upgraded to the latest version of Adaptable we have an issue with adding the images.  The upload box does not appear on the page as it did in the past.  It is still there as you can see it if you choose to view 'standard' view rather than the 'full screen view' (in full screen mode it doesn't appear at all).  I have changed the theme to check it isn't the grid format causing it and it works as expected on other themes.  It also works on the previous version of Adaptable (but we can't roll back to the previous one as we lose all our theme settings).


Does anyone else have this issue? 

We have tested it in our live and test sites.  Version details are: Adaptable: 1.3 (2016121300) using the Grid format (version 3.1.1.2 2016060703) and the same thing happens on both  Moodle 3.1.3+ (Build: 20161222) and Moodle 3.0.7+ (Build: 20161202)

Screen shots

This is how it should look (this is on Adaptable theme 1.2.4.2 in full screen mode).

Upload to grid format on Adaptable 1.2.4.2


This is how it looks on Adaptable 1.3 (the upload section on the right only shows if you change the view to 'standard view'. It is completely hidden in full screen mode).

Grid upload on Adaptable 1.3


The grid format is heavily used so we can’t stop using it and I can’t change the theme in year (as the additional (and excellent) navigational features will be lost).  If I can't find a fix I may have to find a new theme for next academic year but I would much prefer not to as I love this theme! 

Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated!

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY

This a similar question was also asked in other forums and the answer is still the same.

Adaptable has some settings to setup the default course format topics & weeks. It includes also a section to set up the SocialWall format. We can't develop settings for all the course formats, or at least not for the moment.

The main problem is that courses formats use its own styles and are not following the styles included in the themes. So the result could be different of the expected.

Aside this question, we found an issue when using the Standard View and it is already in development. In the meantime use only the Full Screen view.

PS: PLEASE; add your questions to the right thread. This is only for version 1.2.3

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY
 

Thanks very much for your reply Fernando.  Apologies for posting in the wrong forum.  I looked around the forums to try and find the best place to put it (I thought that the forum title was referring to versions 1, 2 and 3 rather than a specific older version).

It is rather frustrating that it is working for you but not Dave or myself.  It really isn't working for us and, whilst you mention to only use full screen, I have to go to standard view to get any use out of the grid format.

Sadly, it looks like I will have to look at another theme for the future as, whilst I love Adaptable, the grid format has more value to useful course set up than the theme does (and I don't have the know how to fix it myself).

If any other users are having the same problem as Dave and myself and are aware of why (and if there is anything we can do to address it) it would be much appreciated!

I am not having this problem.  In fullscreen mode the image uploader appears as expected and works just fine.

Moodle 3.1.2
Grid 3.1.1.1 (maybe that's the difference?)
Adaptable 1.3


Rebecca, you said that the Grid format is more important than the theme (which I can understand), but is fullscreen really more important than the theme?  That seems to me to be user preference and not so much a functionality issue, but I'd like to know your thoughts.  If the grid image uploader is working for you in standard mode, maybe that's worth keeping the theme for now?

The issue  is not direct related with the view. It is a layout problem.

If you select the right sidebar (default value) then Adaptable displays all the blocks correctly doesn't matter the view.

We are working on it but not sure if will be fixed before  Monday when we will publish a new release.

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY

Hi Heleen and Fernando,

The issue with the Grid format (which uses a standard Moodle form with no extra format specific CSS) is the CSS:

fieldset {
    min-width: 0;
}

in adaptable.css.  To replicate, have a course with the format, turn editing on and click on a 'Change image' for any of the grid icons such that you are taken to the edit image page 'editimage.php'.

Also when changing theme using the URL and selecting Adaptable 1.3.1 on M3.2 I get the error:

Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in F:\moodledev\moodle32\theme\adaptable\config.php on line 29

being that the $PAGE global has not been set and cannot be relied upon.

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY

Hi Mary,

The 'fieldset' is generated by the moodleform, so standard core stuff.  Refs: https://github.com/gjb2048/moodle-format_grid/blob/master/editimage_form.php#L31 and https://github.com/gjb2048/moodle-format_grid/blob/master/editimage.php#L71.  Therefore not added directly by me but as a consequence of using a Moodle form.  Been in the Grid format for many years without problem.

The 'fieldset' CSS with min-width set to zero comes from an Adaptable style sheet.

Before the last update, in mobile, the logo and icons together, they were see larger, symmetrical and orderly.

I can change size the logo a 250 x 80 as it was previously and move the icons area for mobile below the logo and not in of side right according to the latest update. I think the logo has change of 250x80 to 170x80.  

I can make the change from CSS or is there another way?

Hi Fernando, the images previously were in portrait, now I send it images in landscape, as seen the logo area is separated from the area of the icons.

What I would like to achieve is that the icons are below the logo and the entire whole is centered on the screen, for have order and symmetry, both for portrait as for landscape. I think there is interference that before not happened between the areas of the logo and icons, when I hide the logo, the icons are shown centered on the screen, when I hide the icons, the logo is shown always on the left of the screen.

Sorry Diana, but I can't help you. I need to know the screen resolution when the content breaks.

We apply different breakpoints (something still inherited from BCU) that can have conflicts in some resolutions.

We are working to improve this view in some standard resolutions like 800 or 1024px width.

Thank you for using Adaptable in your moodle project. I try to answer your questions.


1. how can I put text in Moodle header as well as a logo?

In Adaptable > Header you can add the logo or a text


2. How can I reduce spacing between marketing blocks and bread crumb above and News block below?

Probably you have enabled some element in that area. Verify the secondary InfoBox is totally empty. We noticed that sometimes moodle add p tags without text


3. Can I restrict how wide the news block is?

Do you mean "Site News"?

This is not a block and is part of moodle front page. You can modify the width using Custom CSS.

Below the courses grid there are no more elements, only the footer or the admin area when you logged as admin. So no idea why you could have some spacing there.

Can you see the same spacing when logged as admin and when open the site as a guest?

You can add your custom CSS in the Custom CSS box in the Adaptable settings and you can find id's and classes using Firebug or Chrome Inspector.

Hello.

First of all, thank you for this awesome theme. I installed it around 2 weeks ago and redesigned completely my school's moodle (http://moodle.camee.edu.mx) site around this theme, everyone in the school loves the new look.

Now, the only thing that is bothering me and my students a bit, is that when users enters their Dashboard, they cant see their name and profile image anymore. I know they not there because they already know is theirs, but almost everyone liked the feeling of having their photo and name on their dashboard.

I wonder if theres a wat to make them appear again, because I have been exploring all the settings in the theme and haven't found anything yet (lots of options, so maybe Im just lost in them). When I switch the site to another theme, the photo and name appear again on the dashboard, its just with adapatable that they dissapear.

Thank you!

About the avatar not showing on any theme but CLean, you are almost right, it doesnt shows on any theme but Clean and More. Would be nice if adaptable could do that too.

Also I know why I though thta it was showing on all other themes, it is because in all the other themes there's a small avatar right next to the user menu in the top bar, the one with the ufll user's name. Don't lnow if that would be posible to be introduced as an option in the future.

Oh and about support in spanish, I really don't care if it's in english or spanish, wherever the support is better I guess hehe :P

Hello again.

I found 2 problems while using adaptable them today.

The first is during quiz reports. If you have the right side blocks enabled, then the photo of the users in the report gets all distorted. If you hide the blocks then the photos are displayed properly, but when you show the blocks again then photos get distorted again. Pic of example:

 

Second problem is related to the text editors. I tried to switch to atto today and found that the buttons for font color and back color (even the plugin morefontcolors) dont work under adaptable. I mean they work but you cant see what are you pickicng cause it just shows the button holder but no colors at all. Tested it with other themes to see if it was a plugin problem instead of the theme but it worked fine under other themes. Here are images of what happens:

Just read the forum. Atto strips most of the HTML tags.

Or just add some CSS inline. If you have a syntax error, the code will be rewrited by Atto creating something really messy to read and fix.

You must use TinyMCE that allows better HTML/CSS coding.

The CSS for the Atto editor background color is:

Hi

Thanks so much.

My problem is not the toolbar.

It is the dropdown menu item hover status.

When you hover over a dropdown submenu item, you get white text on a white background.

This code works:

.editor_atto_menu .dropdown-menu:hover>li>a{

color:#000080;

        font-weight: 700 !important;

}

But it doesn't do what I want - because then all the submenu options change to the same style.

I have tried

.editor_atto_menu .dropdown-submenu:hover>li>a{

color:#000080;

        font-weight: 700 !important;
}

But it goes back to the white on white.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Each Alert Box has its own Visibility field where you can change the visibility. Change to "Visible to everyone" to show the alert to guest users.

This is correct. From version 1.2.2. the breadcrumb is configurable and uses another format.

Hi I am using Moodle 3.0 and theme Adaptable 1.2.3. In frontpage I would use the display of courses with combined list, but does not work. I only see one set of empty rectangles separated by category names, while each of these boxes should contain an image and a link to the course. Missing some configuration? Thanks.

If you want to display courses by categories then you must choose the default moodle layout.

Well, this is beyond the themes forum but the issue is normally a wrong Apache configuration that can be fixed using .htaccess file if you don't have access to the configuration file.

In any case should be an admin who apply the changes because is easy to break the whole server.

This CSS seems to be causing an issue:

#region-main .generaltable {
    display: block;
    overflow-x: auto;
    overflow-y: visible;
}

Is there a specific reason why you are doing this?

The problem we are having can be seen on a page like Gradebook Setup where there is a little popup context menu. Near the bottom of the table the context menu will be partially hidden. I can fix this by overriding the CSS with display:table, and I don't see any problems so far doing this, but I would like to understand your reasoning for this in case I'm introducing a problem somewhere I cannot see.

Average of ratings: -
Picture of Diane Soini
Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY
 

This page:

/grade/edit/tree/index.php?id=<courseid>

In the Actions column, click on an edit link for a row near the bottom of the table. The context menu will be partially hidden and you need to scroll to see the whole thing.

If I change your CSS from

#region-main .generaltable { 
display:block;

to:

#region-main .generaltable {
display:table;

the problem goes away. But I would like to understand why you chose to set the table as display:block in the first place in case there was some obscure browser bug or something you were trying to mitigate. The only real change other than fixing the problem with the context menu is that now tables inherit the 100% width from bootstrap (which our group thinks looks fine).

I am loving the Adaptable theme, but have noticed the same issue on 2 of the Moodles that I work with that are now using Adaptable.

When I go to the Dashboard - the 'Course Overview' section - the header bar at the top, is wider than the content area below it (see image below). The blocks on right side of screen are displaying correctly so it isn't a block issue. I cannot see settings to change this - is this a bug, or are the settings somewhere that I haven't found yet?

Any further ideas?

Re: [ADAPTABLE] Width of Course Overview in Dashboard
 

Margin:0 just removed the centering. You want to adjust the width. The block content has a max-width of 280px. You can change it to 100%, but it might look a little bit wide on a tablet-sized window. If it looks too wide to you, you can use the CSS from the .block_login .content rule and apply it to the form inside.

.block_login .content {
    max-width: 280px; /* change this */
    margin-right: auto;
    margin-left: auto;
}
/* add this */
.block_login .content form {
    max-width: 280px;
    margin-right: auto;
    margin-left: auto;
}

Hi Glenn, 

You will also need to adjust yjr block's "header" class CSS too if you are altering the "content" class, as these two elements are separate entities.

Something like this...

.block_login .header, .block_login .content { ... ... ... }

Hope that helps?

This is another block with WRONG styles applied. Add this to the Custom CSS Box:

.block_login .content {
    margin-left: 0;
    margin-right:  0;
    max-width: 100%;

Hope some day moodle standardize the blocks styles. Adaptable goes a step beyond of classical blocks in columns and all this wrong code  breaks the layout.

All the Moodle Themes based in BootstrapBase are responsive and work well in any device.

Adaptable includes some features to adapt the responsive view for mobiles. 

So not sure what you mean with "the changes in the desktop applies to all devices". This is the goal in responsive sites except if you use the mobile settings.

    font-size: 20px;
    font-weight: normal;
    line-height: normal;
    max-width: 100%;
    overflow: hidden;
    text-overflow: ellipsis;

Change font-size, font-weight and even line-weight to try to fit the text in the tile.

To enable this feature you must create first a custom profile field then add a valu and evaluate the value in Adaptable.

For example. Create a filed named persontype and add the value student.

Then add this in Adaptable settings:

persontype=student

Only the users with this field value equal student will see the menu.

There appears to be no toggle switch (three bar icon) that allows you to view the menu in a normal Moodle theme. This looks like a bug as I cannot get it to work on a normal browser on my PC when I reduce the width of the screen which is odd.

I failed to set up a multilingual header menu. I tried it with the format of moodle's custom menu items like:
German List Item|http://german.de|german Tooltip|de
english list item|http://english.uk|english tooltip|en

Additionally i tried it with the multilang-filter like:
<span class="multilang" lang="de">Deutscher Eintrag</span><span class="multilang" lang="en">engl. entry</span>|http://any.web

All list items are displayed always, regardles of any language settings (lang-menu, user-profile). Have I done something wrong or is it a bug or not supported?

Re: [ADAPTABLE] Course Access Options
 

If you need to add video or images to your course description and you want to make it your sales page, you can create a course and call it "My Store" or something then add pages in your store that describe your courses.  Add a link to each course you are selling that will open the course they choose.  You can choose if you want visitors to be able to open the store.  I require users to create a new account, then let them open the store or a free course that I have provided.  If you want to sell your courses, you need to setup the enrollment method to require them to pay to enter the course.

Just open a course, then find /course administration/ in the administration block.  Under course administration, click on /users/enrolment methods/  when the page opens, find "Add Method" and click on "Choose ...".  There you can select the enrolment method you want for that course.  

If you want to use PayPal or Authorize.net, you will need to go through the setup process found in /Site Administration/Plugins/Enrolments/Manage enroll plugins/ then enable and setup PayPal or Authorize.net.  When a user clicks on the course link, it will require them to pay the fee, then enroll them in the course automatically.

Hope this helps,

Clarence

You must set the default enrolment as self-enrolment. Then after click the course tile you will be asked to enrol in the course. If you want to sell the courses then set Paypal as a enrolment method.

Hi Emma, Clarence and Fernando,


Thank you for your suggestions. I was actually looking for something like we see in the following two examples.


I am looking for a feature to have the courses listed and then browsers can checkout the course descriptions before they could make a decision whether to sign up or not. This feature could also enable purchase through a store in the LMS. 

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Regards, Shaminda.

The sample sites are not moodle however can't be exactly replicated.

The Joomdle solution would be closer to your needs instead moodle as a stand alone.

Yes, I would agree with Fernando.  Use Joomla as your front-end with the Joomdle plugin would probably work for you.  I believe that WordPress has the Edwiser plugin that allows for single signon  from a WordPress site but I do not now if it is has shopping cart functionality in the same way that the Joomdle plugin does.

However, you can still list your courses with the description in the summary and then use the Paypal plugin for enrollment if you want to keep it within Moodle.

Hi,

I've just noticed that the Moodle Docs link is not displaying in my site even though both the master switch in site administration is on and the switch in Adaptable is also on.

I'd appreciate any ideas.  Am I missing something?

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY
 

I should clarify that the Moodle Docs link has appeared very rarely after I fiddle with some combination of Footer Blocks Placement, Show Footer Blocks, and Footer Layout Builder (row 1).  It's not predictable though, and I don't want any footer blocks at all, just the default Docs link.

Thanks.

In the Colours section you can change the link and hover colour in the whole site.

If the changes are not applied then purge cache.

Hi Fernando, good day, I'm setting the marketing blocks with buttons for each block, from a previous query, I found the following HTML code to make buttons, I copied and pasted the code in the info box of the corresponding block and works well, but has linked the hover for default of the page (#ffffff):

<a class="btn btn-default" href="#" role="button">Link</a>

I can change this code to have a different color in the hover, for example: #252525 and is diferent of hover for default of the page and paste it into the corresponding info box?

Thanks for your comments.

You can add the hover pseudo-class in the Custom CSS box. Something like:

.btn.btn-default a:hover {
background-color: #ff0000;
color: #ffffff:
}

Add your colours instead of the indicated.

You can create the same class for the default colour as well.

Hi,

We have a little problem with moodle 3.1.1+ (Build: 20160714) I work in maintenance mode on the production site.
Our install is in French our default language is also French, I installed the latest version of the theme Adaptable 1.2.3 (2016052900) and the administration interface of the theme is in English, how can I turn it to French language ?

When I did the installation on the development site the administration menu was automatically set to  french without specifically parameters it seems…

As far I see the french translation is only 50% completed so probably some latest strings are not translated yet.

If you want to collaborate in the translation of the missed strings, go to https://lang.moodle.org/ and after review will be available in your moodle (and all the french moodle sites) after a language pack update.

Help Please 

We are experiencing some very strange issues in several areas.  We are running Moodle version 3.1.1+ (Build: 20160811) and the latest version of the Adaptable theme.  Right now my big issue is that the page to grade students work in an assignment will not load.

It just sits and spins and will not load. I've attached an image.  If i change the course to the Clean theme the page to grade the assignments loads ok. 

We are also having problems with the sub menus (users, reports) in the navigation pane - they do not open sometimes. 

Please help - we really like the look of this theme and would like to continue to use it.

Thank you,

Karla Bright

Hi Fernando, thanks for your previous comments, I'm editing questions for a quiz and the questions proposed are distributed as in the image attached, the statement of the question, image and alternatives indicated in the yellow area, in the center of the quiz question area and on the right the quiz navegation, but there are empty spaces on the left and up the area as shown in the image.

I can change this setting from the custom CSS, for that the yellow zone cover more screen space, such that covering space indicated, for it look bigger and also move the quiz navegation vertically as indicated?

I can change the position of the quiz navegation to the left of the yellow zone, from the custom CSS?

Thanks for your comments.

Hello,

I set up an adaptable for our university and I like these theme verry well!! smile Yes

I only have problems with the navigationbars.  The structure at the backend is a bit confusing, but in the end you will always find a way.

Only at two places I can't adjust, that drop down menus appear in multiple languages:

exemple: Top Menu (newmenu1title, newmenu1)

The correct notation should be:

Registrierung|#|für Externe|de
Registry|#|without HU-Account|en

But it dosn't work.

The way to take the multilang-filter dowsn't work too:

<span class="multilang" lang="de"><a href="#">Registrierung</a></span>
<span class="multilang" lang="en"><a href="#">Registry</a></span>

 

The same is for the toolmenus at the navbar (toolsmenu1title, toolsmenu1) – I didn't find a way ..

Could you help me please?

Best greatings
Stefanie

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY
 

Hi 

Working with M 3.1.1 and latest adaptable I have a Problem in customizing frontpage Marketing Blocks.

I need to have an <input type="checkbox"> within a Marketing-Block. In the edite-Section of the Block the checkbox is shown as desired, but when entering Startpage, there is no checkbox within the Block. Nothing of that to be found in sorcecode of the frontpage. What's wrong? Do Marketing-Blocks support checkboxes at all? in M 3.0.3 these are working properley.

Please give me a hint, how to solve that.

Thanks!!!

Looks like a theme settings problem related to the FORMAT given to the setting, as I can get to see a Checkbox in an HTML block using TinyMCE editor on one of my own themes and also in Adaptable with same block.

checkbox.

I did the same Test with an HTML-Textblock. Same result, checkbox appears.

I agree with you, obviousley not a Moodle related Problem.

So I'll be waiting until the Theme is updated.

Ah...but it IS a Moodle related problem which has been forced on all themes. It is one of a group of settings that we have to use, and it is very frustrating.

The only way to get round this is to add a block region in place of the Marketing blocks and use an HTML block that contains the Thumbnail code mentioned in the LOOK & LEARN tutorial.

If you want to test how Moode CAN work you can try adding those checkboxes in the Frontpage 'Site topic' area.

In fact they may even work here!

Mary, I personally added contact forms in the footer blocks and works well. But the same form in the marketing blocks is not working. Not only the checkbox, also the radio buttons and other elements.

At first sight, the render is the same so we are investigating why one is working and the other fails.

Re: [ADAPTABLE] THEME SUPPORT ONLY
 

sorry Emma, me again

Whatever I try, I can't get a very simple <input type="checkbox"> to work in any Marketing-Block or Info-Block on Startpage.

I can edit these Blocks on the respective Edite-page, Textboxes are shown as edited in any of the Blocks, but when switching to Startpage to see the result, notb one trace is to be found of the checkboxes.

I tried several approaches, Atto/TinyMCE as Editor, cleaning caches (moodle and theme caches) several times.

All remains without success - Can't get checkboxes to appear!-

To reproduce: just try entering    <input type="checkbox">  in any part of Info-/Marketing boxes. I hope, we can get it work.

Or: Did I find a bug? Could anyone check this please?

yours

I could replicate it and I will investigate it.

So that is a first step to solve this problem.

I'm hoping for a quick and easy? solution.

If necessary, I could change some php-code in the actual Versions of the Theme or Moodle, until a Fix comes up in any next Version/update/bug-fix.

We are investigating the issue but actually we are focused in a new release 1.2.4 to be published this week. So this issue will be solved in the next release 1.2.5 because this is not a critical issue even it is a bug in some place.

For some reason moodle strips some HTML tags, not all, So it will take time to review the code, fix the issue and test it.

For me it is a bit critical as well.

I have to import/further use an accordion-set using a checkbox to show/hide full content of a marketing block (better of 4 Marketing blocks).

I' m about to update older Version 3.0.3 to actual Version and need these Blocks to work. Otherwise I can' t update!

Nevertheless I unerstand I_ll have to wait. Thank you for your quick responses

Adaptable uses these colors because are more visible when selecting text. You can change theme using this snippet of CSS:

::selection  {
    color: #YOUR_TEXT_COLOR;
    background-color: #YOUR_BACKGROUND COLOR;
}

Use also ::-moz-selection for Firefox.
