Adaptable is a highly customisable responsive two column theme based on the popular BCU theme. Adaptable has all the features of BCU along with many new features:

  • Front page Marketing Blocks. You can display Up to 60 custom blocks with different layout.
  • Layout Builders! You can now define a custom layout to add blocks using drag and drop for:
    • Front Page
    • Footer
    • Dashboard
    • Course Page
  • Fully Customisable:
    • Fonts
    • Colors
    • Block styles (including icons)
    • Buttons (including radius)
  • Choice of two sliders on home page with custom colours
  • News / Announcements Ticker on Home / Dashboard
  • Multiple front page course styles
  • Extensive custom menus (can be targeted to different users based on custom profile field)
  • "My Courses" list can be organised to put older courses in sub menu item
  • Dismissible Bootstrap Alerts
    • Display site-wide notices using different Bootstrap styles
    • Allow users to dismiss alerts once read (persistent between page loads / login)
    • Allow re-use of alerts (display again even if user has dismissed) buy updating a "key" field
  • Additional layout settings for width, slider width, padding of various elements
  • Social icons or Search box in header (admin can choose between the two)
  • Activities and Resources Adaptable icon pack improved 
  • Support for Social Wall Course Format (thanks to Chris Kenniburg for help on this)
  • Support for Grid Course Format (thanks to Gareth J Barnard for help on this)
  • Mobile settings
  • Option to add login form in header on front page
  • Favicon uploader
  • Background image uploader
  • 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 navigation items and notices.

It is also possible for individual users to customise where they want top menu navigation to appear (disable, home pages only, site wide) 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 afterwards.

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

    Hi,
    thanks for the great theme! Will Adaptable still work after upgrading to Moodle 3.7 (perhaps after an update)?

    Hello, I do love your theme. There are just some details, that I miss to get better results on mobile devices. Therefore I was wondering, if in the moblie settings you could ad a section for another logo and the possibility to change the size of the font in the headlines. Thanks a lot in advance for considering.

    With boostrapbase parent theme removal from Moodle 3.7, are their plans to update Adaptable? If yes, how soon?
    I will begin migrating my single Adaptable site to Boost but hold off implementation until I get a response.

    Hi,
    We are facing some issue with the adaptable theme. Once the students complete the task or unit, automatically a green tick mark will come next to the unit. Green tick is working fine, but it is overlapping on the edit button. Please find the image link below:

    Firstly I love the Adaptable theme, and use it on many sites. I have however noticed something that is minor but significant to us. Within a bulleted list, if a particular line of text within a single bullet wraps onto multiple lines, the spacing between these lines is larger than normal. I would like the spacing within each bullet to be the same as normal paragraph text. Is there some CSS I can add to change this? I am on Moodle 3.4.8 with Adaptable theme 1.7.3, thanks in advance.

    Moodle Version 3.6.3
    Theme Adaptable Version 1.8.0.1
    I have installed Adaptable theme in the moodle, but the problem is many courses font size smaller and other courses font size is as it is without any changes. Why this happening?

    If this is possible could you give us instructions on how to do this?

    Hi, every time when I look at this themes Homepage, it is on maintenance. My problem: I have Moodle 3.7 and Adaptable for that. Switching of layout, Blocks to Left side does not work! Whatever I set, Blocks remain on right side! Whats wrong?
