Sadly, I don't have time to work actively on the project, I can answer questions, but I am not going to develop any major change. If you want to contribute as developer I can help you to get started with the project. Just ping me.

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,

    Hello Oskar and Margari,

    I will check what is happening with those two buttons and make an small post on my blog with a way to fix it until I release my new version of archaius. I think I will solve it before next monday (sorry for delays but I am traveling and I am having troubles to get a good internet connection).

    Hi Daniel, first thanks for the excelent theme. I want to make a change in the lateral panel, that all not selected tabs descend to the lower part of the panel:

    so I need a little bit of guide on how to do this:
    - I supposed the files responsible for doing this effect are /javascript/archaius_custom_blocks ... js ?
    - Did this effect is a predefine effect of JQuery library?
    - Any tip you can give will be gratly appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi Diego,

    Your comment is excellent, it is on my TO DO list, I am studying Human Computer Interaction and the behavior you are pointing out is more intuitive that the current behavior.

    With regards to the JS, YES it is a plugin, but it is not predefined I created it.

    Please wait a bit, next week I am going to be working in Archaius to fix small details like this one, and post my solutions on my blog until I release the new version of Archaius.

    If you want to can download my github repo to try it until I release it in moodle.

    Best regards,

    Hi Daniel, sorry for the overdue thanks for the tutorial. We are moving ahead in (hopefully) adopting this as our theme. We have items on the custom menu, and we need to change the background colour to match our unselected tab colour. Is there a way we can do this in the Custom CSS for the theme?

    Hi Daniel, exactly what I was looking for, and I may try the rounded corners thing too.

    Hi Diego,

    I have been thinking about your suggestion, you can read my opinion at (my english is not the best but I think is ok to get my point of view about this topic).

    I posted a solution to get the behavior you want, I haven't fully tested it, but I think it will work (if not, let me know).

    Pd. Maybe you will have to do some css fixes.
