Fordson 1.6.0 introduces three new style presets: Corporate Learner, University Learner, and Dearborn Public Schools. I also wrote up some documentation for the theme and "recommended settings" for each individual preset so that you can get the best style results.
New Style Presets
Corporate Learner: Very simple, no background image preset. Most colors are tied to 2 settings: Brand Primary and Body Background Colour. Changing these two colors will drastically alter the look of the page. Designed to be distraction free with minimal color. This preset gives you all the features of Fordson with the simplicity of the Boost theme.
University Learner: This new preset is a beautiful full-screen design with a university in mind. You can get interesting results by adjusting the Header Image Height to minimize or make larger the header image. Minimal use of color makes customization a breeze. Pick the Brand Primary and away you go. Course activities are listed in a styled box that helps the student focus on tasks.
Dearborn Public Schools: This is our namesake preset that was going to be kept internal. We shared it anyways because I really like it. Custom Header Images are used only on the main course page. Once in an course activity the image is hidden and content is up at the very top of the page. This maximizes learning screen space without compromising style and personalized courses for teachers. It is recommended that you use the slideshow option for the homepage to add a visual element. This is also a full-width preset which also has unique styling for course topic headings, course activity lists, quizzes, and other elements. Smooth and stylish with minimal color.
