    I don't foresee any problems with this theme in Moodle2.8. Can you try it and let me know if it stops working, or gets errors or worse! Cheers

    This was our favorite theme, but now we have moodle 2.9 . It' s perfect for the calender. with the other themes our calender view is very bad (override-problem). We need a solution before school is starting again in september. Please make soon a version for 2.9 . Cheers Monika

    I have updated this

    Thank you very much, for the update! It's much better than other themes. But I've some month with a lot of long entries who underwrite. A popup window would be the best solution. Could it be realised in future?

    This theme has been the mainstay of our school for several years. Since the upgrade to Moodle 3.1 it now shows the section names twice. If you are planning to update for the new version that would be very much appreciated!

    Thanks for the heads up with the duplicated section name, but unfortunatly that is a Moodle BUG which is a pain in the old themes.
    I'll see what I can do and post a link here.

    This is just note to say that I have updated and added two new zip files of the Anomaly theme for Moodle 3.0 and Moodle 3,1 respectively.
    These can be found at the top of this page.

    The current version for 3.1 works great...except for assignment grading. When I click Grade it does not go to the page completely. It sort of loads the top and dies.

    Hi Brian,
    I have finally pinned it down to this CSS:

    .path-mod-assign [data-region="grading-navigation-panel"] {
    border-bottom: 1px solid #ddd;
    height: 6em;
    left: 0;
    margin: 0;
    position: relative;
    top: 0;
    width: 100%;

    Originally in the CSS I found that the above CSS had "position: absolute;" which appeared to screw up the page for this theme. If you go to your Anomaly settings page the one where you can add some Custom CSS, you can add the CSS as it is written above it should work after you save the page and then Purge all caches.
    Purge all cache

    I followed your instructions and can now see a littel bit more of the gradings page but not much. We have all our courses in Anomaly that we like very much because of the large central area; it would be great if we could keep Anomaly.

    Than you very much for the help!

    .path-mod-assign [data-region="grading-navigation-panel"] {
    border-bottom: 6em solid #ddd;
    height: 6em;
    left: 0;
    margin: 0;
    position: relative;
    top: 0;
    width: 100%;
    .path-mod-assign [data-region="grade-panel"].fullwidth {
    position: fixed;
    top: 8.8em;
    left: 3%;
    right: 0;
    width: 94%;
    overflow: auto;
    bottom: 60px;
    .path-mod-assign [data-region="grade-actions-panel"] {
    border-top: 1px solid #DDD;
    position: fixed;
    bottom: 0;
    left: 0;
    width: 100%;
    height: 60px;
    I fix the grading page problem with above CSS.
    It can adapt with browser screen size, and works great.
    Just add above CSS to Custom CSS and apply it, it will work.

    We would like to print the results of Moodle quizzes as well as previews (in order to hand out in case internet isn't working). With the anomoly theme, it doesn't allow you to print just the quiz, without everything on the left showing (navigation, quiz navigation, etc.) Any suggestions to fix that?

    Hi Debbie, Can you ask this question in the Themes Forum as it will be useful for others to learn how you can change this. In the mean time I'll add a print.php to the layout files and alter the anomaly/config.php to reflect that change, as soon as I can.
