Hi Julian, congrets on the Theme, its beautifull.
Im on my first project, its almost ready to go online.
The only thing I was not able to configure is the SlideShow Speed, Ive changed the [Slide Speed] number, but it change the length of the slide swap only, not the time that the slide remain on page. Is that how its supposed to work? (Im on latest version...)
Thanks! Regards, Alan

Jullian,
At the Imoot page http://2014.imoot.org/mod/page/view.php?id=1
The page show a heading, that is similiar to the blocks.
In my site its now showing that way, its just a normal text.
What could that be?

Hi,
The only problem is installed the theme "elegance" in moodle 2.6.2. The problem we have is that when you click on "Site Management" --> Appearance --> Theme Setting or all sections of appearances. I finally sent to a blank page.

It seems that the problem is due to the permissions, however the dedicated server provider told me it was not that, but Moodle.

To see my web should go to modify the host file and include the following line:

184.154.166.26 pedinta.cl www.pedinta.cl

Hi Julian,

I love the template but I do have a question regarding the slideshow. What is the best resolution for the slide show for any screen resolution? I uploaded a banner and it was duplicated on a smaller "box" screen to fit the area. What do you recommend?

Thanks

This looked to be a great theme, but I had a problem with it. I wanted to try it out on a scratch Moodle installation before applying it to my main site. I added this theme to a new installation of Moodle 2.6.2 for Windows, using the Windows installed. When the theme is changed to Elegance, Apache server went down. Restarting causes the same problem. Makes me really hesitate to install it on my GoDaddy account.

Hi
I seem to be having a problem with this theme. When I try to view something in a course, may it be a folder or the forum, I get a error message " Fatal error: Call to undefined method theme_elegance_core_renderer::navbar_button_reader() in /opt/lampp/htdocs/theme/elegance/layout/default.php on line 40" I am unsure how to fix this, any help?

Thank you for the theme, it is great. Is it possible to add a "My Courses" menu to the navbar similar to the one found in the Essential Theme? This made navigation for students at my high school through there enrolled courses much simpler.

Thanks again, Chris

Have you considered adding an option to display the course name at the top of the course page? I always end up having to hack the template to do this. I ended up adding this under line 26 on default.php (after the region-main ID line, around 127):

That renders the course title nicely at the top of the course, but inside the page container (as opposed to above the white box but under the nav bar).

heh, that tag is wrapped in an h1 with class = courseTitle but it got rendered into this page instead of printing it

This theme is very beautiful. Impressive!

However, I encounter a problem.
When I launch the SCORM activity, the screen does not fit to the whole screen (the width) even if there is no block set in the right column. The right column is empty and it is odd.

I have tested, with other theme, the activity would be expanded and would not just restrict the the left column.

May I know if I can just make it as 1 column, i.e. only the column of the SCORM activity, or other solution / setting I can do?

Hi, If i chose default category icons it works, but custom category icons are not set. What could be the possible reason?
Any help or solution will be much appreciated.
Thanks

My font's seem to have broken as only the headers are in a nice font, the others are in times new roman (or equivalent). And it is a fresh installation of the theme, and ideas ?
