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.

    Any Ideas how to add the Global search to the header?

    When I add a logo (36px x 36px) on to the theme, it places in middle of the short name that appears at the top. It used to be on the left most corner. Can that be fixed or I have to use one or the other? Thank you.

    Hi Shaun, not sure if you've seen this firsthand, but I'm doing some testing on iOS 10 at the moment and there seems to be a bug where the navigation hamburger menu wouldn't expand at all. I had a quick look at the Newbury College site and I'm seeing the same problem there too?

    @gary Thanks for this. It was the same on all devices. I've fixed it now - hopefully (2016081900)

    Hi Shaun, I found a typo of your name in the German translation of the footer link "Based on an original theme created by Shaun Daubney |". In German it says "Das Design wurde im Original von Shaun Dauben erstellt. |"! By the way, would it be allowed to place this link somewhere else, e.g. legal notice, as I would like to keep the footer as small as possible?

    The best theme ever! But could you please implement block docking?

    Hi, and thank you for the Aardvark theme. The teachers are very happy with it. However I had one request from a teacher: Is it possible, for example with some css, to either dock the "Turn editing on" button or make it so that it follows along as you scroll down the page?

    People, please!

    Is possible to put the text in bold: "short name of the site"?

    How? Which file? And which line?

    Any upgrade to Moodle 3.2?

    I don't have 3.2 here at the moment. What doesn't work with Aardvark on 3.2?

    Hi Shaun, You can allow users to install Aardvark by adding 3.2 to the version list in the settings. As far as I know it's working OK like all the other Bootstrap themes.

    Thanks Mary. I'm always hesitant about saying it's compatible without testing it myself but I've added 3.2 to it on your recommendation.
