Sadly, I don't have time to work actively on the project, I can answer questions, but I am not going to develop any major change. If you want to contribute as developer I can help you to get started with the project. Just ping me.

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

Moodle 3.2

I have received several emails asking why Archaius doesn't work on Moodle 3.2. The quick answer is: it does. you just have to install the base theme (, I think I am going to remove that dependency to avoid problems in the future.

Best regards,

    We switched to a version of Moodle 3.1, and we have the beginning of a problem with the menu.

    Or you need to do in ipravleniya Arhaius Tigris v-1.4.7

    Hi! Daniel

    Thanks to this theme who is really good !

    Can I ask you a question?

    Is it possible that we can access to a moodle with this theme in a complete free demo before you can integrate this beautiful theme on our site?

    Thank you in advance !

    Hola Daniel,

    Ante todo, gracias por el tema, es muy muy útil (y chulo). ¿Es posible hacer que desaparezca la cabecera del player de SCORM? Ocupan un montón de espacio que preferiría tener libre para que los usuarios no tengan que utilizar la barra de desplazamiento.

    Gracias por adelantado!

    Hi Daniel,

    On the first place, let me thank you for the theme, it's really useful (and cool). Is it possible to remove headers from the SCORM player? They take a lot of space that I would prefer to be able to use for the content itself, so the users don't need to use the scrollbar.

    Thanks in advance!

    @ Эдуард Скуматов,
    I had the same issue with the menu block on the left side when migrating to Moodle 3.1.1.
    Easy solution is to change the boilerplate.css stylesheet of Archaius:
    ul, ol { margin: 0 0 1.5em 1.5em; }

    @Daniel, when will Archaius be compatible for Moodle 3.1.1?

    Thnx Daniel; when you have a test version ready please send me a pm (when possible)

    ps: I also had issues with the radio buttons, for that I have added:
    .mform .fgroup > span {
    display: inline-block;
    margin-top: 5px;

    And the tabs (preview, edit, reports, grade essays) are not shown correctly.

    Hi Daniel, may I know whether there is any way to have different colors for header and footer? Great plugin by the way!

    Thank you in advance!

    Hi Daniel,

    First of all, you have created a very good featured/functional theme that looks good and is very easy to customise with CSS. Thank you for the contribution to the Moodle community.

    I would just like to know what your plans are to make your theme compatible with Moodle 3.1. There are many Moodle admins that would love to upgrade their sites, but they cannot due to the theme holding them back.

    Looking forward to your updates. Once again, GREAT job!!

    Hi Giovanni,

    Thanks for your kind words, It is sad to hear my theme is a problem for some people to upgrade to Moodle 3.1.

    I haven't upgraded my theme, because I decided to make a huge change, so, I am working on it. I want to finish the update before a presentation I am going to make in MoodleMoot Colombia (August 29th), I hope I can finish by then.

    As a more personal comment because I have received a lot of messages about this:

    I am doing what I can to try to finish my updates, but, this is not my job, I didn't get paid for it. Every hour I work on this project is an hour that my actual contractor is not going to pay me. I am building a personal project, so, I need to work more 'paid hours' to earn money to finish it.

    DESPITE ALL OF THIS , THIS IS WHAT I HAVE DONE: => it is a really bad video but gives a hint about what I am building.


    If you really need my theme real quick for Moodle 3.1, feel free to fork my github repo and make the changes you need:

    Best regards and sorry for the inconvenience I am causing,

    I have a very simple question that I hope you'll be able to help me with. Is there anyway to change the width of the navigation pane in the theme? As it is now, some of my course titles are getting cut off...I've tried configuring the trim settings in the block, but so far that hasn't helped.

    Hi Kimmely!!

    Sadly, in the current version of the theme the left and right sections of the layout have a fix width (200px). Fortunately, I have been working on that improvement since last week.

    Best regards,

    Hola Daniel, buenas noches:

    Tengo instalado este estupendo theme en un Moodle 3.1+ y me aparece un problema a la hora de acceder a evaluar las "tareas" de forma que la altura del div es de tan sólo 15px. Llevo ya un par de horas localizando el CSS pero no hay forma.

    Alguien se ha encontrado un problema similar? Cual es el parámetro que hay que modificar y en qué archivo css se encuentra?

    Eu alterei no próprio campo do tema ADVANCE, moodle/admin/settings.php?section=theme_archaius_developer
    Alterei a DIV REGION-PRE
    #region-pre ul li{
    font-size: 0.94em;
    margin-left: -4px !important;
    width: 151px !important;
    Você pode alterar estes ou outros parâmetros para ficar de acordo com seu idioma.

    Are you planning to update your chart theme for Moodle 3.3?
    There is a lot of interest in this theme.
