I made a theme "Ocean Blue".
Please try this
You can add your original logo easily.
I tried the Ocean Blue and when it first comes up the gray bars are nicely shaded but when I go to an other location the shading disapears but will return when I refresh the browser. The Browser is set to update every visit. Any sugestions?
Thank you very much for using
Are you using Version 1.0.7?
If possible, could you please check other standard theme whether same thing happens or not?
I downloaded 1.08 Dev but still get the same result. I also tried the cordoroyblue and when I first bring it up the bars are plain green but when I refresh the browser the shaded colors are displayed.
Yes thank you it must be the browser on my home computer.
The problem is computer related; all the computers in my school computerlab work fine. Exept one teacher station. It is probably the browser even though they are all explorer 6.
I've thrown together a new theme called cordoroyblue (using some textures I'd made for another site) which is in CVS. It uses some new CSS classes to cover a few areas that I'd missed in 1.0.7, so it's best seen on today's code.
My Moodle is always New now.
I'm updating My PC's Moodle with CVS 2 or 3times a day.
I have checked cordoroyblue, pretty nice
I'll try using some texture for new themes.
Setup your browser to automatic, your setting as is will cause problems with some sites.
Example: if you go to my site www.chess4us.dynu.com and you try to review the london system for example with your present settings you will not see the pieces move properly when you choose auto play. With your setting set to automatic you will see the pieces move correctly.
I need something to keep me awake while I grade.
I took your cordoroy blue theme as an example and basically changed it all around with different textures and colours I'm currently using this on the OILP e-learning site.
http://www.oxilp.ac.uk and click on the e-learning link if you want to see it.
The main features are:
Three different textures, all based on some paper/parchment textures I found freely useable on the web, but with the colours and brightness tweaked by me a little (Or in one case...a lot).
Side box titles set to bold to stand out better against the background texture.
Double border on the main heading box, in whatever section you are in, to help draw attention to the main meat of the page.
"Visited link" colour changed, so that participants can see which sections they have not yet used or visited.
Main (non-texture) table colours set to match better with the cream colour that's used in our website a lot, with a slightly darker version to act as a contrast.
Hope you like it folks.
Just a small warning to anyone installing this, the files for this theme aren't packed in a folder, so make one first.
I think we should standardise on packing themes in a folder, it makes them much easier to install.
Here it is again, in a folder, with all the extraneous files (which I hadn't realised I had left in there) removed and the favicon changed to a brown one, which fits better with the scheme
I've renamed it parchment.
Apologies for the multiple postings.
I'm not a programmer so its beyond me except for a little tweeking here and there...I wonder if Martin could point in the right direction re changing the layout ......
I would have thought it could be done simply within the template area and slipping in the appropriate php tags.
I'll ask a couple of phpwebsite bods to have a look.
All the best for Christmas ...if it has any real meaning over there....in brisbane it doesnlt seem to have a lot of meaning left.
I just downloaded Moodle and plan to use it for training and other applications on my website that will be going up sometime in January. I've looked around at other software and must say that I really like Moodle over other software. I especially like the thought behind the teaching, which motived the software design. Three cheers for superior training software design!!! I truly appreciate the work behind the software. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Thank you.
I plan on having a very slick website and definitely want to modify the Moodle theme to fit my website design. When I finish the theme modification, I will make some variations as well and will post them to this room.
I may have some questions along the way so I'm sure I'll be in here asking for help for the modifications. I'm not an HTML programmer; I use Freeway on a Mac to create my websites. Freeway is great! However, I do know how to get around Photoshop and 3D software to create an interesting look.
Here is the theme i made, i call it PowerAid and the color scheme is light grey, and uses rather much images to draw the layout.
Please try it out, i think it is rather nice
There is no hardcoded colors in the theme, everything is set in style.php and config.php.
I also added some of my own defines to the config.php to be able to better control the apperence of the theme.
Another "feature" is that you can actually change the name of the theme if you want to, since is have used;
instead of hardcoding the theme name.
Hope this meets your standards
The theme is basicly the same as your standard theme...
Since it formed the base for me
I'll have to do some editing before including it (I don't think much of the "Powered by PostNuke" at the bottom , and popup help windows shouldn't have all those headers in them) but otherwise it'll be in 1.0.8.
Missed that one... sorry!
I have done some changes to the theme already...
Missed some hardcoded fontsizes and some missings table headers, i can send you the edited themes instead..
But the help pop-ups i need help with... (it is my first moodle theme...)
Attached is the corrected theme
Thanks for the program btw. We've been using it for a while now, and I find it very flexible.
PS: Is it okay to post the themes as tarballs instead of zips?
Better to use zips to make it esier for Windows users (and according to the download stats, the Moodle zips are downloaded more than the tarballs).
I implemented your theme today http://www.gis4u.com/moodle and my students loved it! They made a lot of comments about it.
I have one issue though. The module highlight feature does not highlight the active module. Does anyone know how I could fix this? Which file is that variable in and what variable is it?
perhaps you are interested in my Theme. I'm not quite sure, as I did some tricking around with background-images and CSS as some old output-code made troubles - I really noticed, that you are slowly migrating towards XHTML transitional 1.0, as you tell us in your doctype-declaration.
And it might be possible, that this theme may look messy in older Browsers. It works well in IE 6.0, Mozilla 1.1+ and Opera 7+. I do not have older Browsers to test the theme.
In think, before I post the theme here, there should be slightly improvements:
First of all when I'm logged in as admin, the site news cell in the middle has no class. As student, or when I'm not logged in, it has a class. What must I change, that an admin, too has a class in this cell?
Second: in a course, when you have the topic-outline, ist ist possible to have two different classes for the left and the right border of the contenttables?
Third: Where can I change the width of the input-field of search (Search in Forum)? Unfortunately IE is messing around there, displaying a wider field. It is not the button, as I already shortened the buttontext.
It has a background-image, two logos and a background in the header, and the header is on all sites (well, not really, because I needed for the other sites a different Header than on the Home-site, as the table on the home-site is wider and behaves strange, when you work with margin in CSS).
Greetings from Bavaria
Working on trying to make a new theme, but Im having trouble editing the tables. Any simple way to do this, when they are pieced together in the php code?
Please check out this site I'm working on for a teacher of mine, and let me know what you think.
And if anyone is interested in what I have got so far, Ill be happy to upload it.
Hi, it's looking good, unfortunately I can't be much help to you, however I would be interested in seeing your header.html file for your theme, possibly help me out with a problem I'm having. If you don't mind...
By the way, is 7.31 a real version number?
Capital is great---can you change it????
OH---7.31 is just the date that we last updated it---the theme...
Hey---I have some new MOODLE mofification work for ya is your available---let me know if I can dump it on ya---Rob
It looks great. I altered the basic structure of my sites by adjusting the tables. You can see one of them here: http://www.ohs-web.com/digitalohs2/login/index.php
I could do somthing similar if you are interested. E-mail me if you are... email@example.com
I'd try and get some alternative icons to make it more appealing to gamers everywhere (manga/animé icons for moodle... hmmm )
