Hello    2 questions:  I am using moodle 2.8 I am thinking to update it to new version. I am wondering if the theme I am currently using can I still use it or will it change?? I like the layout of the one I am using and my students are familiar with it. If I do not update it, will it crash or will it remain working. 

thank you

Harmony

ok so does that mean the theme will not stay like it did when I went from 1.9 to 2.8 and is there a similar theme for 3.5

As far as I know the 'wood' theme never existed for any version of Moodle 2.x onwards. It would look dreadfully old fashioned anyway. I'm not sure that's the theme. 

If you go to Site administration > Appearance > Theme selector - you can see what theme is currently selected (under 'Information' for the 'Device type' 'Default'). Having established what the theme is, we can go from there.

See where it says "Administration" down at the bottom left? That one.  

Sorry - I just assume that administrators know which is the (site) administration link. 

You've been trying to find this in the course administration.
