    Excellent theme. I have one a problem with the session though.

    If I have the full 8 pages open in an iPhone, the Moodle2Mobile won't open a course in a new window from the courses menu which is good because I keep my session ID. If I have a spare Safari space, clicking the course menu will open the course in a new window. I lose my session and log out. I'm going to scan through the code to see if I can force parent window.

    I added a CSS property to the menu and it seems to have worked. Thanks, Andrew

    Can anyone tell me if this phone plug in would help with my issue? My admins cannot use web browsers on their iPhones to enroll students.

    Hello folks, I'm running into an issue where faculty are selecting the Moodle2Tablet/mobile themes by accident on their non-mobile devices. This turns their course site into a mobile version, which unfortunately prevents them from returning to the Settings area to turn back the theme.

    Any reason why the Settings area disappears when viewing a course using these themes on a PC?

    We greatly appreciate this new theme, it seems to work quite well. We ran cross an issue though, when Course Completion settings are enabled. We were able to add custom CSS to other themes to fix the issue, but this theme seems to ignore our custom CSS code below:

    .path-course-view .completionprogress {display: none;}

    Will this work on 3.0? If not is there any chance it will be developed?
