Is it considered normal to modify the files in Moodle directly?
I do a lot of customizing in CSS but there aren't a lot of individual-enough call tags, either (IMO it runs very short on allowing for CSS customization which is really unfortunate). Is Moodle mostly reliant on personal/custom-built themes? I keep running into issues, like this, where the only apparent solution is to hard-code. I come heavily from a Wordpress environment, so maybe I am missing something?
Love Moodle otherwise - very stable and I don't regret building in it for my client, but just wish there was more help in the forum and like-minded people wanting to customize more of the front-end.
