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.

    There is something wrong, even with that CSS...I am trying to find what is happening with the page. It could be that the body classes are not being added to the page.

    Hi, Calendar takes month names from your Computer, so you must change that to use your preferred language.

    New version uploaded - please note that the Aardvark logo setting has been depreciated in favour of the core logo settings. Some other 3.2 specific features have also been integrated so it's marked as 3.2 only.

    Hello, I have 2 requests:

    1.- website url, can open a new page
    2.- general alert, have a button to close the alert

    For the moment I solve it by placing the following text in its respective field:

    1.- "target =" _ blank "
    2.- <button type = "button" class = "close" date-dismiss = "alert"> & times; </ button> alert text

    Sorry for the translation

    Aadvark doesn't actually work under the latest Moodle 3.0 release.

    After being annoyed for quite some time about the plugin updater notifying me about a new Aadvark version, despite said version not installing properly due to required Moodle version (Aadvark 3.1 requires 2016052300 while my Moodle 3.0 install is version 2015111609.00), I decided to download Aadvark 3.1 (2016081900) myself, modify version.php inside the zip, repack, uninstall my current Aadvark (version 2015110900) then upgrade with the repacked zip...

    Result: After setting theme to Aadvark with theme selector, my Moodle site is completely blank, except for the top bar (which is in a light grey color, and the top right dropdown menu doesn't actually work)

    Luckily I had backed up the virtual machine so I simply rolled back, but it would be best to not to advertise Aadvark 3.1 as being supported on Moodle 3.0, since it really isn't.
