    Hello, how to set up the column grid to 1, 2 or 3 column ? I am in a 2 column grid. On the setting of blocks, I see left, middle and right. But selecting right does nothing. Thanks for your help.

    Hi -

    This page says this theme works on 3.5, but when I try and install it, I need an upgraded version of Boost. Attempting to upgrade Boost means I'm told I need an upgraded version of Moodle. IS there a version of this that will work on Moodle 3.5?

    I believe I am having a similar issue as the above, I am trying to install this theme onto a Moodle 3.5 version. But when I try I am met with "Not in the Plugins directory theme_boost" obviously this is in the theme directory as boost come with core Moodle on 3.5.

    It is flagging it as an 'unknown dependancy' which is a bit odd, the version it asks for in the theme itself is '2018120300' but the boost theme installed on the latest release of Moodle 3.5 is '2018051400' (so is 7 months out of date). The boost theme has subsequently been removed from the plugins area (online). Is this why it is being flagged as 'unknown'?

    Does the dependancy version in the theme need lowering to meet the version installed with version 3.5?

    Hi @Adam and @Louise. Yes I think that was a mistake and the version should be lowered. A better choice would be to upgrade to Moodle 3.7 now this theme is in core

    Hi, I'm having the same issue as Adam and Louise. Tried changing boost requirement to the version in 3.5 (2018051400 ) but the theme layout seems broken after this. Unfortunately, I can't upgrade to 3.7 as you suggested - any other ideas on how to fix this?

    Hi @Jelena @Adam and @Louise. Please install the 1.2 version if you are running Moodle 3.5

    I wanted to know if the Classic theme is compatible with version 3.9 of Moodle (I see that the latest version is for 3.6). We have done tests migrating to 3.9 and we have not detected incompatibilities, but we are concerned that they may appear once done on the real platform.

    I have this theme with moodle 3.11.6 on linux server.
    How can change the blocks to add more information and hide the menus without login user?

    Thanks smile
