  • Please do not use the github version of this theme in a production environment. The current plugin repository version will always be the most stable.

    Elegance build "2016080100" requires Bootsrtap build "2016080100", but there is no such build to dowload, only build "2016072900".

    Hi Bas,

    Thirst of all, thanks for your effort and the great work you´ve done. I´ve noticed a possible bug in the 3.1 version. The font fontawesome (ttf/woff/woff2) is not is not displayed and I get a 404. The URL to the font is: If I change it to (?-->&) the font is accessible. Is this some kind of bug in the theme or a misconfiguration of my system (Turnkey appliance)?

    Has the custom "user menu" disappear from the newer version?
    I have also tried to modify the user menu using 'User menu items
    customusermenuitems' on the theme settings page with no luck. Any advice?
    Many thanks

    Hello, I was using this theme in Moodle 3.0 just fine. When I installed Moodle 3.1 with a new host and imported my course, I can no longer see bullets in, for example, Book contents and descriptions of SCORM activities. The HTML is correct (it has the correct list syntax) - it worked fine in the Moodle 3.0 version. I'm using the most recent version of the Elegance theme. Help!

    I was excited to upgrade to the newest version of this theme that I didn't bother to read the changes. I know that was my mistake but I really didn't have a choice because the version we had was not working properly in our current version of Moodle and since we loved the theme we didn't think of any issues. To the surprise of all our instructors, the great front page is gone and the wonderful icons we used for our categories is no longer an option. We loved our site using this theme because it made it look different than your "standard" moodle site. We are managing this change but some of the content that was inputed into our first page is no longer accessible since the options used to manage that content. We have been looking for a couple of days a way to remove this content and have yet to find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
