Thanks a lot to Barbara Ramiro and David for their suggestions, I will try to improve everything you said.

Moodle 3.2

I have received several emails asking why Archaius doesn't work on Moodle 3.2. The quick answer is: it does. you just have to install the base theme (, I think I am going to remove that dependency to avoid problems in the future.

Best regards,

    Thanks for getting back to me. I'm using Moodle 2.8.9 with Archaius build 2015011900.

    So, I added this Custom CSS to our site to resolve the problem:
    #page-content #region-main div.header {
    display: inline;

    I did this because it seems that #page-content #region-main div.header was set to display: none in archaius.css on line 258. It seems to be a section that is supposed to apply to blocks in the main section.

    I do have some custom css that applies to the gradebook, but I did check that first and there is nothing that removes display (it just adds color to the gradebook to make it easier to read).

    Hi Daniel,
    In Moodle 2.9, the installation of third-party plugin "Block notifications" sets default displaying this graphic theme within a course. Over displayed blocks. Disappearance of the content of sections ...
    Do you have a proposal?
    Thank you beforehand.

    Hola Daniel. Increible tu tema. Lo uso desde hace ya años y va genial
    EL caso es que he puesto la ultima version y el logo se me ve mas pequeño. Como arriba está, supongo la linea para social, pues se me queda todo más pequeño. Puedo de alguna manera deshabilitar esa linea, ya que no la utilizo, para que se me vea más grande???.
    Gracias de Antemano

    Is there a way to increase how wide the side blocks are, as well as allow the page to completely fill the screen without having a margin?

    Hi Daniel,

    I was just wondering, is there any way to change the layout of how the courses are displayed on the home page so instead of them being listed down the page more in a table form of rows of 3 or 4 etc? as i have many courses so its becoming quite a long list haha

    Many thanks

    Hi Adam,

    I am thinking about the same thing. Let me work on that when I have the time, unfortunately it is going to take some time because I am kind of busy.

    Best regards,

    We have used this theme on our site for a few years and are testing the 3.0 version of moodle. Most of our courses use the OneTopic format and with the most recent version of both plugins the design of onetopic breaks with this theme. The tabs views do not display correctly. The section name is shown under the tab and it is off center. The OneTopic option works in other theme just fine but we would really like to keep Archaius. Do you have any suggestions?

    Hi, Im having this problem with the CSS.
    I have a .CSV with couple of columns (maybe 8 or 10) considering the custom profile fields. When Moodle shows me the preview table with the errors, It does not provide me with a scrolling bar so that I can navigate withing the table and see the errors. I know it can be fixed with custom css line, but I think this should be resolved for future theme upgrades. It has happened in both Archaius installations I have.

    This is when making Upload users with .CSV UTF 8.

    We switched to a version of Moodle 3.1, and we have the beginning of a problem with the menu.

    Or you need to do in ipravleniya Arhaius Tigris v-1.4.7

    Hi! Daniel

    Thanks to this theme who is really good !

    Can I ask you a question?

    Is it possible that we can access to a moodle with this theme in a complete free demo before you can integrate this beautiful theme on our site?

    Thank you in advance !

    Hola Daniel,

    Ante todo, gracias por el tema, es muy muy útil (y chulo). ¿Es posible hacer que desaparezca la cabecera del player de SCORM? Ocupan un montón de espacio que preferiría tener libre para que los usuarios no tengan que utilizar la barra de desplazamiento.

    Gracias por adelantado!

    Hi Daniel,

    On the first place, let me thank you for the theme, it's really useful (and cool). Is it possible to remove headers from the SCORM player? They take a lot of space that I would prefer to be able to use for the content itself, so the users don't need to use the scrollbar.

    Thanks in advance!

    @ Эдуард Скуматов,
    I had the same issue with the menu block on the left side when migrating to Moodle 3.1.1.
    Easy solution is to change the boilerplate.css stylesheet of Archaius:
    ul, ol { margin: 0 0 1.5em 1.5em; }

    @Daniel, when will Archaius be compatible for Moodle 3.1.1?
