    I have been using your theme for quite a while. I just upgraded to the latest version of Moodle and also upgraded your theme. My only issue is that I am upable to add anything to the items on the top middle of the front page. On your screenshot it is the items like "Front Page Forums" and "Test Page" There is a Add item or Resource link in the bottom right of the area but it does not seen to work for me. Any thoughts?

    John, Does Darb Blue still also use the Cancas and Base themes. They are not in the current version of Moodle.

    You have to have site topic enabled in frontpage settings to add things to the frontpage.

    Base and Canvas are certainly still part of Moodle. I just downloaded the latest and they are (as expected) there. Thanks!

    The screenshot shows it as three columns, but mine appears as two, and I can't find how to change it - any suggestions? Thanks

    Re Guy O' Malley
    1) Settings > Turn editing on
    2) Click "Configuration" in the Block you want in the right column
    3) In " Where this block appears" "Default region" select "right"
    4) In addition you may want to change "On this page" "Region" also: select "right"

    Really like this theme, but as with one comment above, I can't change the colour on either the link or main colour options. Any ideas? Still going to use it, just would satisfy the institution colour scheme better if I could change.

    You need to clear the moodle cache after using the settings page to choose colors.

    John, Im just looking at printing a page and it does not appear to print the content page. Is this an issue with the theme or my customisation to it? cheers, Brad

    Hi John, actually i just tested it again, it seems to be working now however the groups overview table doesnt print - it uses the class generaltable. i cant see off hand why it wouldnt print. I suspect where ever generaltable is being used, printing doesnt work.

    Thanks for the work on this, it's a great theme! We just switched over to Moodle 2 (2.5, to be exact), and I've noticed that the course categories don't seem to be expanding using Ajax (i.e., the little arrows beside the category names). I'm guessing it may have to do with the changes mentioned here:

    Are you planning to continue working on the theme? This is the only issue we've run into so far. Thanks again for the hard work on this!

    FYI - The issue I mentioned earlier with expanding categories seemed to be fixed with an upgrade to 2.5.1 this morning. It had looked like it was a theme issue, but apparently it was a bug in the Moodle code.

    Installed the 2.4 version 2013011201 on 2.5.2+ and all seems to be OK.
