If you have a test server running Moodle 3.1, please could you test the first Essential 'beta': https://github.com/gjb2048/moodle-theme_essential/releases/tag/V184.108.40.206 and report any issues here in the first instance. You will need a little skill to download the zip file, extract the contained folder to the themes folder and rename it to 'essential'.
I have not released on the plugins DB to reduce the inadvertent placement on production servers. DO NOT use in production!!!!
Because of the overwhelming support on Moodle Garage (http://www.moodlegarage.com/) - thank you to everybody who has sponsored - I have added two new (plus alternatives) colour settings for the striped element of tables. Currently the grade book, question bank and plugins overview tables have been catered for directly. I have also fixed the carousel for RTL so that it logically flows in the correct direction.
All sponsors will have a credit in the final version of the readme file at the end of the crowdfunding campaign.
