The "Trema" Moodle Theme

The theme Trema has a focus on usability and beauty, so for that to became real the developers have tried to make something clean and usable for everyone in the community.

The main goal for this theme is that the Moodle site will not need another site for information/advertising/marketing.

Nice features in trema: - It's based in the boost theme, so it will continue to be compatible with Moodle for a long time.

  • The frontpage is fully customized. It's possible to change the image banner. You can create up to six beautiful cards with custom contents and you can add custom HTML content with no restrictions.

  • The login page is awesome with Particles lib.

  • We really use Bootstrap to make the theme fully responsive.

  • The footer is highly customizable and we have an exclusive admin area block that can be seen and accessed only by the site administrator.

  • Thinking a little more about the administrators we made the admin dashboard area, so that they can see in real time some data about their Moodle.

  • The colours scheme can be changed in the theme settings.

As Trema is licensed under the GNU GPLv3 License it comes with NO support. So if you need some help talk to us in 'Moodle profile' in 'Developed and maintained by' above and we can discuss some improvements. To inform errors access Github Issues.


Ensure you have the version of Moodle as stated above in 'Required version of Moodle'. This is necessary as the theme relies on underlying core code. Move the folder trema to /theme/ folder from your Moodle installation. Access the Moodle Administration page (/admin) for do the necessary updates in your database.

For uninstalling trema you must change the theme. And in /theme/ remove the folder trema.

See the demo site

    Trema is really a beautiful, stylish and up-to-date, very happy to see a free and high quality theme. But one problem I encountered was that when I wanted to self-enroll a course myself, it would throw an error "Exception - Class 'theme_trema\output\core\course_in_list' not found". I have reinstalled Trema twice on two different servers, unfortunately the error has not disappeared.

    Great theme
    Really like the simplicity of look and flexibility of color theme
    And great to see that you styled the quiz.
    One input
    I am currently using adaptable and their course setup use a better looking set of icons, for activities and resources + plus a layout setting for these elements, so the student clearly can look down the page and see hver is the assignment, quiz, file.

    Thanks Tina

    Hi Wei Chieng Chiew,

    This error was occurring due to a change made in Moodle 3.6 and we did not realize that this would affect 3.5. We created a separate version for Moodle 3.5, can you try it?
    Thank you for your feedback!

    Hey Tina Brixen,

    We are sure that Adaptable has great features that we also want to implement. But now we are focusing on adapting with the management of Moodle plugins (this is our first published plugin) and finishing the documentation.
    Thanks for the suggestion, hope that we can work on it later and be sure that we'll work to make trema better.
