Rocket is a professional high customisable theme for those who wish their Moodle site to look less moodley. It is a fixed width theme with multiple block locations.

As this is an advanced theme using some very new Moodle 2 functions (I don't think used yet in other themes) I strongly recommend reading the documemtation via the link below.

A demo of this theme in action can be seen at

Please view the sample screenshot below to see an image identifying key theme features. 

Should you have issues with the using the theme, please post your comments in the forums. If you have a bug or a patch, please post these in the Moodle Tracker using the link below

    Julian, this is very impressive theme. I love it! At the risk of asking a dumb question, how do I edit the main html block to the left of the image? There are no edit icons on it. Thanks so much!

    Never mind, Julian. I figured out the html thing. I'm so excited about this fantastic-looking theme!

    Julian, I can't get it to work in 2.0.2. I get an error message saying that the theme is not valid for my version of Moodle. Any help greatly appreciated.

    Not sure if this will help with any install errors, but I deleted the screenshot in the zip file as this was preventing the install on my server.

    I tried to install as well.. I keep getting to the continue screen (once you have got past the plugin check screen) so it appears to load well, but then it just goes blank. The url it is showing says that it should be working but nothing. When I remove the theme it works OK again.. Any suggestions?

    Update, I put debugging on, this is the message I get. Same as David. Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/icantec1/public_html/demo/theme/rocket/settings.php on line 23 for the life me I can not work out why?

    Hi All. Theme version requirements have been updated to require Moodle 2.1 or above. If your on 2.0 you will need to upgrade I'm afraid

    @G Koo the search area you see in the screnshot is just a block location. I like to put either the "logged in user", "global search" or a html block there.

    I have tired to install this theme on two sites both v2.2.1 and get the same error as above on both. The theme has to be deleted for anything to work after the install.

    syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/xxxxx/public_html/demo/theme/rocket/settings.php on line 23

    Theme will not work in brand new install of latest version of v2.2. Renaming the theme folder will allow the site to function normally
