    Dear John,
    Thank you very much for sharing with us this wonderful theme.
    I have customised the theme with our branding:
    http://testlz.health.org.kw:4949/

    but because our students come from arabic countries, I would like to move the block column from left to right, as this is the normal way that they read information.

    Is there an easy way to move the blocks column?

    Thank you in advance for your advise.
    Regards

    To move the column to the right, you will need to modify several files.

    First, edit config.php and change all references of side-pre to side-post.

    Then edit pagelayout.css and add

    .side-post-only #page-content #region-post {
    width: 250px;
    }

    .side-post-only #page-content #region-post-box {
    margin-left: -250px;
    }

    .side-post-only #page-content #region-main {
    margin-left: 250px;
    }

    .blocks-moving.side-post-only #page-content #region-main-box {left: 0;}
    .blocks-moving.side-post-only #page-content #region-post-box {margin-left: -250px;}
    .blocks-moving.side-post-only #page-content #region-main {margin-left: 250px;}
    .blocks-moving.side-post-only #page-content #region-post {width: 250px;}

    Then in core.css find:

    #page-content-wrapper {
    width: 90%;
    margin: 0 auto;
    min-width: 960px;
    background: url([[pix:theme|leftcol]]) repeat-y top left;
    }

    and change it to:

    #page-content-wrapper {
    width: 90%;
    margin: 0 auto;
    min-width: 960px;
    background: url([[pix:theme|leftcol]]) repeat-y top right;
    }

    That should be it! Clear the moodle cache!!!

    Dear John,
    I have noticed a small pitfall about your theme when you use Firefox 16.0.1:
    When a user sends you a message and you receive the notification (There is a message from user...), if you try to click on 'Go to messages', the link disappear before you can actually can click on it, so there is no way that you can be redirected to your messages unless you go to the habitual route:
    Profile->Messages, etc.

    I have tried in Ghromme and IE and it seems to work.
    I wonder if somebody else has noticed this or it is only me

    Hello,
    I just let you know that I have converted the theme into thee column layout for courses only, because that is what it suits us. It is easy to activate the three column layout for frontpage and general pages after that.
    I am happy to share my css files with whoever needs them.

    Regards

    Hi John,
    I like your cover theme smile . I just translated it into mexican spanish at Moodle AMOS.

    One small improvement: Can you please change the string in [pluginname,theme_cover] "cover" to "Cover", as all the other Moodle theme names begin with a CAPITAL letter.

    Thanks in advance

    Aaricia, I read that you have converted the moodle theme Cover 2.4 to a three column layout. I would love it if you could convert all the pages including the front page to the three column layout and share with me. I am the technology coordinator for a small K-12 district in Ohio and I would love to use this theme for our 1.9 to 2.5 moodle upgrade.
