Decaf is a three-column, fluid-width theme for Moodle that was created by Lei Zhang and Paul Nicholls. It improves usability by fixing an "Awesomebar" at the top of the screen, which provides dropdown menus containing everything in the Navigation and Settings blocks.

For developers, it also transforms the performance info into a colorful bar which floats at the bottom of the screen, which increases awareness of the performance statistics.

    Does anyone use Videoeasy Filter and Decaf?

    Videoeasy: https://moodle.org/plugins/view.php?plugin=filter_videoeasy&moodle_version=17

    I'm getting poor results, the filter works fine in Clean.

    Further comment: Videoeasy give a lot more power to deployment of video. It does work with Decaf in forum, but not in labels.
    Justin has said "The other thing is that labels are evil. I don't know why, but the way the filters are applied in labels is somehow different to other parts of Moodle. In particular the order of filter application at site level does not seem to be the same at label level. So try putting viewing a video in a forum post and see if that works."

    To focus on what I am really trying to achieve: nice video deployment in Moodle 2.8+ with Decaf.

    Decaf and Videoeasy, a month later.
    A little bit of clarity.
    Video easy works with Clean: http://vle.tpp.ac.nz/course/view.php?id=444 (Topic 1
    Fails with Decaf: http://vle.tpp.ac.nz/course/view.php?id=189&section=1

    I've reported this on Git. https://github.com/CTANZ/moodle-theme_decaf/issues/21

    Probably the most difficult problem I routinely face: two non-core plugins that do not play nicely together.

    PS. This just arrived in my mail from a friend who I asked to help.
    "The flow player CSS is enormous. There’s over 30 classes I can see that need repair scattered across dozens of elements. I’d need to do a side by side comparison of Decaf vs Clean.
    Basically, this isn’t a quick fix, probably several hours and unfortunately, I really don’t have the time to spare for it 
    Sorry. This is a job for the developer"
    He may or may not be right. Sometimes these big glitches result from one line of code.

    We have just upgraded to the Moodle 2.7 version previously on 2.5 using the Decaf theme. One of our instructors was complaining about the docking feature is not available any longer. I have researched and researched and cannot find anyone that has stated a concern over the ability to dock a block. Am I missing something?

    Any help on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Ron,

    Just add:
    $THEME->enable_dock = true;

    Into the config.php file in the decaf folder.

    Following up on my post about Videoeasy and Decaf.
    Still faulting.

    I've updated the Issue report on GIT. https://github.com/CTANZ/moodle-theme_decaf/issues/21

    Sorry about the dumb questions guys. Of course someone knows the difference.

    A little more of a considered post.
    The other day Gareth posted this: “adding Awesome Bar into Essential for Desktops only (as it looks bad on mobiles)” - https://moodle.org/plugins/view/theme_essential
    I assumed the new Decaf was responsive, including the Awesome Bar. I have never used our main Moodle on mobile. When I looked on Sunday we have no AB when I use a mobile. Is this a problem of our setup?
    Our Decaf version: 2014010 - 2.0.5613 How can I tell if this has responsive elements in it or not for AB?
    Should we be using the download from the responsive branch on Git?

    Derek,

    At the top of this page are screenshots of decaf including one for a mobile device.
    You access the awesomebar using the 'burger button' as Paul calls it (top right).
    I've already found that if you want custom menus, these are best attached to the awesome bar for display on mobiles.
    You can simulate a mobile by reducing your browser window on your PC (at least that works for me) smile
    BTW I have the same release of decaf (2.05 - the latest) which says it's for 2.8 but it works for me on 2.9 and even the 3.0 dev branch.

    First things first, thx for this Awesome theme!! :P

    I'd like to know if it's possible to disable the mouse-over events on the Awesome bar so the user would have to click to open the menu and submenu. Do you think it's relatively easy to achieve? I have some basic PHP knowledge but none in javascript and i suspect this would be the place to make the change.

    Your help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thx again!
