Pioneer strikes a balance between features and beautiful design. The Pioneer theme is focused on enhancing learning by using intuitive navigation, a simple layout, and amazing styling. You have learning content, Pioneer makes it beautiful.
Just wondering . . .

This is not a review as such.

We are looking for a theme for Moodle 3.0 to do an upgrade in January 2016.  I've found it really difficult to do a good analysis as often I'm not sure what is a feature or a bug, I'm not really very good at CSS tweaks etc.  But I did install this theme, and had a look at it.  I think it has a lot going for it.

  1. Great styling
  2. Remarkable use of images in badging courses at the course level
  3. Images in tiling for each course on the front page
  4. Nice tabbed sections on the front page.
  5. Font Awesome based menus.
  6. ability to narrow header . . .

Chris done well in the plugin page with the videos and pictures so you should be able to get a good idea to see if you want to crash test the theme.

My comments  and thoughts on Pioneer are here: https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=323800, complete with Caveats.

With regards, Derek.
