    Good morning, wondering about support for Moodle 3.0? While the theme works, the style customizer fails to load correctly, and because of the way that the theme saves custom CSS I have no idea how to make a few needed adjustments. smile

    If a new version that supports 3.0 is coming soon, we can likely just wait out the small issues, however if you think it may be a few weeks I will need to switch to something else. (not looking forward to that)

    Thank you for your great work on this project.

    Hi Gael,
    Currently no variable affects marketing spots background. I created an issue in github to fix this in next release =>
    Meanwhile, you can add custom CSS to do it at the bottom of the styles manager. Sample CSS to change marketing spots background to white and border to black

    #marketing .service {
    background: white;
    border-color: black;

    This seems to be a regression since Moodle 2.7 with Uikit (last master = c9d1c81 2015-10-26).
    (not tested in Moodle 2.8 and 2.9)
    In a course page, in editing mode, when trying to hide/unhide a section by clicking
    Edit > Show Topic
    You get a javascript Error :
    (as returned by Chrome smile
    Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'setAttrs' of null yui_combo.php?3.17.2/datatype-xml-parse/datatype-xml-parse-min.js&3.17.2/io-xdr/io-xdr-min.js&3.17.…:53
    When you disable the edit mode, this results in an unmodified section.
    This is a major bug, since it affects the edition of course contents, not only the visual rendering.

    So many thanks in advance for your help!

    Hola Eduardo. Perdón por haberte escrito por privado. Soy nuevo y mi intensión no fué molestar por ese medio. El problema que estoy teniendo es que al habilitar el modo edición de algún recurso y/o actividad, no aparecen los botones para guardar o cancelar.
    ¡Saludos y muchísimas gracias por tus aportes!

    Hola Eduardo, primero pues darte un agradecimiento enorme por compartir tus conocimientos.

    Segundo, hay un detalle que mencionar con el tema y es que no está mostrando el nombre completo del curso. Cuando un usuario accede a su curso, debiera mostrar el nombre completo del curso en la parte superior pero no lo está haciendo. Habrá que activar alguna característica?

    Saludos cordiales.

    It looks awesome, but what about Arabic support?
    When applying Arabic language an error message appeared: "Trying to reference an unknown block region side-post"
