    You need to clear the moodle cache after using the settings page to choose colors.

    John, Im just looking at printing a page and it does not appear to print the content page. Is this an issue with the theme or my customisation to it? cheers, Brad

    Brad- what browser? Content seems to print in the few I tested.

    Hi John, actually i just tested it again, it seems to be working now however the groups overview table doesnt print - it uses the class generaltable. i cant see off hand why it wouldnt print. I suspect where ever generaltable is being used, printing doesnt work.

    Thanks for the work on this, it's a great theme! We just switched over to Moodle 2 (2.5, to be exact), and I've noticed that the course categories don't seem to be expanding using Ajax (i.e., the little arrows beside the category names). I'm guessing it may have to do with the changes mentioned here:


    Are you planning to continue working on the theme? This is the only issue we've run into so far. Thanks again for the hard work on this!

    FYI - The issue I mentioned earlier with expanding categories seemed to be fixed with an upgrade to 2.5.1 this morning. It had looked like it was a theme issue, but apparently it was a bug in the Moodle code.

    Installed the 2.4 version 2013011201 on 2.5.2+ and all seems to be OK.

    John, I have a few Moodle sites, all 2.5.+, and your theme has been my favorite since the 2.2 version as it is easily customized and has an intuitive layout. Thanks for the great work. I really appreciate the effort.

    I'm currently thinking about upgrading my sites to 2.6 and wondering if it would work the same way it actually does with 2.5 although it is not listed.

    it was a bug in the Moodle code
    Thanks all

    I am attempting to change the font for the category tree heading in the Dark Blue theme and am having no luck. Any ideas?

    I am in the core.css trying to change the header (in which the logo sits) to one solid color of blue but I get two bars of color, one (on top) darker than the other. Is there a way to fix this? I go to the class headerwrap and I see this:

    setting:maincolor url ([[pix:theme|header]]) repeat-x top left;

    I'm sure the changes I want to make are within those brackets BUT, I don't know how to change them. Any help?

    Maybe if I knew whether this template was built upon other templates, it would help. Is there a way to know this?

    Any news about an upgrade to ver. 3.1? It is a really good theme..
