Rocket is a professional high customisable theme for those who wish their Moodle site to look less moodley. It is a fixed width theme with multiple block locations.

As this is an advanced theme using some very new Moodle 2 functions (I don't think used yet in other themes) I strongly recommend reading the documemtation via the link below.

A demo of this theme in action can be seen at

Please view the sample screenshot below to see an image identifying key theme features. 

Should you have issues with the using the theme, please post your comments in the forums. If you have a bug or a patch, please post these in the Moodle Tracker using the link below

    After I downloaded the theme file to the relevant directory manually, the theme was installed with no problem at all. Thanks for timely and willing response to all requests.

    I just installed a Rocket theme in a website after their update to Moodle 2.7.1+ and the problem is that the activity chooser went grey when clicked on, frozen. Impossible to make a choice. Impossible to see any bug info.

    Do you know what can be the problem?

    Hi Eric,

    Thanks for reaching out to us!

    We have checked in the given scenario (Moodle 2.7.1+), and it’s working perfectly. I think it’s taking a bit longer to reload the page, can you please recheck?

    If you are still facing the issues, drop us a mail with the site details and we will surely try to solve this. Our email id is -:

    Looking forward to your response.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Hi Arindam
    I'm very pleased that you are supporting Rocket theme which we have been using happily for a while.
    But I am having the same problem as Eric in Moodle 2.6.5+. In the 2.3 version the problem only happened if I had one or more docks blocked, but now it happens whether or not any blocks are docked.
    In addition, in Internet Explorer 10, if I switch off Activity Chooser, the dropdown menus in Add a resource / Add an activity display the list of options but the list disappears when I try to select one of the options. This problem does not happen when I use Chrome.

    Hello ,
    I am trying to install rocket theme in my moodle 2.7 and it requires theme_canvas as a dependency plugin which is not currently present at or in github repository to download. So, please support me to install this theme at my moodle site.

    Hi Sakshi,

    Thanks for reaching out to us!
    Actually, theme_canvas is already installed in moodle 2.7. So, dependency_check of theme rocket should not fail. If you had uninstalled the canvas theme from your moodle theme folder by chance, you can download the theme from .

    Let me know if you still face any difficulty.
    Thanks and Regards,

    Hi there,

    I was wondering how I would go about making some different colored rocket themes within the rocket theme. The reason I ask is that it would be nice to be able distinguish different courses within the whole Moodle site. Right now, mine is organized with Rocket throughout. I have a different image in the course descriptions. Sometimes, even I have to myself check to make sure I am in the correct course. I think I can figure out how to change a color or two. Would I make duplicates of the Rocket theme with some color changes and have them as separate themes?

    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for reaching out to us! Actually this feature is still not available with this theme. We will surely keep this in mind going forward and try to implement in the future upgrades.

    Please let me know if we can help you with anything else.

    in front page setting I chose the enrolled course list to be shown to the logged in users. However, all courses short cut appears on the front page which allows the not enrolled user to check other courses in the system.

    I would like to hide this short cut.

    Any help?
