Adaptable is a highly customisable responsive two column moodle theme
based on the popular BCU theme adding:

-Customisable fonts (Google Fonts)
-Fully customisable colors
-Fully customisable block styles (including icons)
-Fully customisable buttons
-Additional header navigation
-News Ticker
-Alternative jQuery slider
-Alternative front page course styles
-Additional customizable marketing blocks
-Additional layout settings for width, slider width, padding of
various elements
-Social icons
-Mobile settings (customise how theme looks on mobile devices)
-Dismissible bootstrap alerts
-Option to add login form in header on front page
-Logo and Favicon uploader
-Modern emojis (thanks to EmojiOne)
-Front Page layout builder
-Dashboard layout builder
-Course layout builder
-Activities status NEW!

In addition many fields (menus, news items, alerts and help links) can
be targeted using custom profile fields, thus it is possible to present
different users with different nagivation items and notices. It is also
possible for individual users to customise where they want top menu
navigation to appear (disable, home pages only, sitewide) using custom
profile fields.

Adaptable has a lot of settings and may seem daunting at first, our
advice is to simply install with the default settings and play with it

With a little time you should be able to setup an attractive Moodle site
with a high degree of individuality without without knowing any CSS.

This theme has been developed by:
Lead Developers
Jeremy Hopkins (Coventry University)
Fernando Acedo (3bits elearning solutions)

Manoj Solanki (Coventry University)

NOTE: This Adaptable version is compatible with moodle 3.2 and higher only.
For older versions use Adaptable 1.3 branch.

Big thanks to all the volunteers that are collaborating and testing Adaptable continuously. We really appreciate your help and support to develop the most adaptable theme for moodle.
