    I had been using the Serenity theme. I just upgraded to 3.1 and can no longer use it. Is there anything similar to this that I can use?
    I tried a few other themes, and my classroom website becomes a mess. Thanks!!

    Hi, when you say you can no longer use Serenity theme in Moodle 3.1 have you tried installing it?

    I have made it available for Moodle 3.1. You can install it via your Moodle site Admin User Interface. Site Administration > Plugins > Install plugins
    And then choose the option button that says: "Install plugins from the Moodle plugins directory"
    Please let me know if you have any problems?
    Thanks

    Hi Mary,
    I just installed the Serenity theme on my 3.1 upgrade. It works perfectly. Thank you so much!!! My high school starts up in a few weeks, and I was very stressed out about my website looking like a mess after my recent 3.1 upgrade. I *really* appreciate your taking the time to help me with this issue. No one else at my high school uses Moodle; so, I am on my own (and I am not good with technology). The community here at Moodle.org has been a lifesaver for me. Thanks again!

    Hi,
    The thing is about the old themes is that Base theme is still present and so is updated and as there are few settings in the older themes they work as they always did.
    Anyway, should you have any problems do please use the THEMES FORUM where I am a Moderator and there most days. smile

    Cheers

    Hi,
    I have chosen the Serenity theme but my webb site still has the Clean theme appearance although I have emptied the theme cache.

    Hello.
    Thank you for this theme.

    Using this theme in Moodle 3.1.1, when the "Topic" view is selected, the "hidden.sectionname" is visible when we enter a course.
    This makes the topic title appear twice, and some teachers complained.

    We solved the problem by adding the code: " span.hidden.sectionname {display:none;} " in the theme's file "style/core.css"
    I don't know if it is a problem with our installs, but this theme does not have settings, so we could add the code to the "Custom CSS".

    Thank you.
    It would be nice for a fix to be added to the moodle plugin repository.

    If you added the theme and it installed correctly, then you should be able to select it. Have you selected it as the Default theme?

    This behaviour is common to all the older themes. Your fix is the correct one. I will certainly think about adding a CSS Custom setting into this theme as it is one of my favourite Moodle Themes. smile
