Your Moodle version

Themes: Aardvark

Maintained by Picture of Shaun Daubney Shaun Daubney
The original 'menubar' based theme for Moodle, evolved for the modern student. If you like it, please show some love by clicking "favourite" ( ♥ ) below!
Moodle 2.5, 2.6, 2.7, 2.8
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.

    Thank you very much for the great bootstrap theme.

    Which version of the bootstrap are you using. I am guessing it is not the latest version since some components of bootstrap are not working with the theme. So will you update the bootstrap version anysoon?

    @Erdem, They are called Custom menu items and you can add them on Site Administration->Site administration / ► Appearance / ► Themes / ► Theme settings page on "Custom menu items" . They are explained very well on that page.

    Hi Ked,

    Sorry I took that out when I was rebuilding it for 2.9 - you can change the background though by adding this to the custom css section...

    body {
    background-color: xxxxxxxxxxxxxx !important;

    Replacing the xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the color you wanted. You can also add images using background or background-image.

    Thanks for this great theme! I tried the theme for moodle 3.01 and I found language switch didn't work on mobile browers when the switch transforming to a icon. It works with the switcher being a pulldown list.

    I'm wondering if the latest Aardvark theme has resolved the "dragging to move blocks" when turn the editing is on. When I checked it, it still doesn't. Correct me if I'm wrong though.. Originally it was talked in Is there any simple way to make it work? Thank you.

    Can someone kindly tell me what code to enter into the custom CSS box so that it will change the color of links? Currently, links are the same color as the normal text, and they don't stand out much.
