I am currently starting development projects for the Moodle 3.2 release and one of the projects selected is a new core theme.
As you might know, our current default theme is based on a CSS framework which is no longer supported. We would like to build a new theme based on a supported CSS framework and would like feedback / help / suggestions from the community.
We would also like to see an obvious difference in the visual design of the theme. We would like it to look “uncluttered” and “fresh”.
Finally - we would like to make some big changes to the navigation in Moodle. These changes are listed on https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-52973 - but include:
changing design of the nav block and simplifying it to a flat list (not a tree)
adding navigation into the navbar
consistent “gear icon” for accessing settings pages
moving the “block region” out of the “content” of the page
If you have advice, suggestions or are willing to help with the design and/or code please reply to this post.
Thanks - Damyon
