    Thankyou Mary - this looks correct. Nothing looks out of place in the code. This plugin entry could use a little more description to explain that this theme is meant as a parent theme and many other themes have been built on it. I did find one problem in core (not in this theme) that is preventing me from uninstalling this theme. I created to get it resolved.

    Thanks Mary and Damyon. I'll be happy to approve this theme together with the other one, once all the recommended missing parts (description, bug tracker, source code repository, screenshots) are provided.

    David, can you check to see that I have added all that is required. I cannot see anywhere to add a Bug Tracker URL.

    There are still some required fields missing. If you go to the "Developer zone" link here on this page, the plugin edit form should open. All required fields are now correctly marked as such. Thanks in advance for providing the info.

    Sorry, I had added the description et al in the version form. I missed finding the Edit Plugin link in the Administration block!
    I'll do the same for Canvas.

    Hi People,

    Just one quick question. Why base theme was removed from the Moodle core?

    Because it was depreciated and set to be removed in Moodle 3.2. It is still available to be downloaded from the Moodle plugins Database.
