Over the past 10 years Moodle has integrated some of the features that have made Aardvark so popular into its core system, including custom menu and user menu.

The theme now features a simple flat look with inspiration taken from Flat UI and Google's material design and applies them beautifully to a bootstrap base.

    How do I get the dashboard to look like in the screenshot. I cant get a navbar for courses or anything. The only thing that changed when i activated the theme was the color scheme.

    Kind regards,

    I like this theme very much - it is very 'live' and good for the eyes! Very good work...
    I'm possibly one of those few who check it with RTL language (Hebrew) and spotted some problems when using IE (11, maybe others)...
    Where can I fill a bug report?

    Elena Robles Robles - the Instagram block is just an HTML block where you can embed a widget or manually add pictures saved from Instagram.

    Unfortunately we're having massive problems upgrading our Moodle so development has been delayed.

    How can I change the header so that it has an icon and a black background?
    From the instagram block you have on the web demo

    Hi, thanks for the great theme! I like the non-intrusive approach. One change I would like to do in the same direction. How do I unstick the top menu bar (where the Home button, Language menu, Logged in user, are)?

    One of my school adopted this theme. We upgraded to 3.6 and all courses with Aardvark theme can not access messaging. Do you plan on releasing an update?
