Do you want to help with my research?


Archaius is part of a research project, which is part of my master thesis, so, I will appreciate if you answer these simple questions


What is new

Thanks to the interview David Mudrák and Tim Hunt gave me a hint to be able to store user preferences to save the state of lateral blocks. Because of that, if you hide the lateral blocks, them will remain hidden the next time you go back to that specific page.

Thanks a lot to Barbara Ramiro and David for their suggestions, I will try to improve everything you said.


Archaius is a moodle theme with several options to customize your Moodle:

  • Upload logo.
  • Upload mobile logo.
  • Footnote.
  • Background color.
  • Header and footer color.
  • Tabs color (to be used with blocks titles).
  • Color for the current block tab (block titles).
  • Color of the current item in custom menu.
  • Activation of the collapsible topics effect.
  • Activation of the hide/show blocks effect.
  • Activation frontpage slideshow.
  • Custom CSS.
  • Custom Javascript in footer.
  • Color of custom menu.
  • Set timeout of the slider.
  • Set height of the front page slider (pixels).


Since Archaius Tigris I have done huge changes in my theme. I have tested the upgrade process several times  and everything goes smoothly, but you never know. You should test the upgrade process in your staging server first.

For your safety, don't try to be a kamikaze, you should do things in the right way.

If you want to take a look of what is new I recommend you read the readme file.

Best regards,

    Also (I'm greedy, but you're awesome), how to get moodle's social networking features (icons) to display?

    Hi Sebastien,

    Thanks for your comments and suggestions Sebastien.

    About what you said, it is not difficult, but I need sometime to check how can I reorganize the header of the theme, I think I will have some time next weekend to work on improvements for Archaius.

    It will be nice if you can add your suggestions to:

    In that way I can add your improvements to a milestone in order to don't forget it.

    Best regards,

    Daniel: On the screenshots for archaius in the description above there is an image slider. How did you get that in there? I am unclear on how to duplicate. Thank you!

    Hello Daniel,
    On the following image from your website you have relocated the language dropdown to the very top and added a search bar.
    Could you explain how you did both those things?

    Muchas gracias Clemente por tu comentario. Siento mucho la demora para subir estos cambios pequeños, el trabajo me tiene muy ocupado, lo haré en cuanto tenga un buen rato libre.

    Hola Daniel, excelente trabajo.
    Tengo una duda, ¿el problema con las imágenes en los foros que reportó Eric está solucionado? Es decir, aparte de añadir la línea que indicas al Custom CSS, ¿está ya corregido en el archivo comprimido para descargar?
    Un saludo.

    Hola Victor,

    No todavía debes agregar la línea, que pena la tardanza con ese detalle, es porque estoy haciendo otros cambios.

    Que tengas un buen día,

    Hi Alexandre,

    Thanks you.

    I suppose you are talking about the same problem some people have pointed out:

    Just add this to your custom CSS:

    #page-content #region-main .forumpost div.header{display:block;}

    If your problem is different let me know,
