The "Trema" Moodle Theme

The theme Trema has a focus on usability and beauty, so for that to became real the developers have tried to make something clean and usable for everyone in the community.

The main goal for this theme is that the Moodle site will not need another site for information/advertising/marketing.

Nice features in trema: - It's based in the boost theme, so it will continue to be compatible with Moodle for a long time.

  • The frontpage is fully customized. It's possible to change the image banner. You can create up to six beautiful cards with custom contents and you can add custom HTML content with no restrictions.

  • The login page is awesome with Particles lib.

  • We really use Bootstrap to make the theme fully responsive.

  • The footer is highly customizable and we have an exclusive admin area block that can be seen and accessed only by the site administrator.

  • Thinking a little more about the administrators we made the admin dashboard area, so that they can see in real time some data about their Moodle.

  • The colours scheme can be changed in the theme settings.

As Trema is licensed under the GNU GPLv3 License it comes with NO support. So if you need some help talk to us in 'Moodle profile' in 'Developed and maintained by' above and we can discuss some improvements. To inform errors access Github Issues.


Ensure you have the version of Moodle as stated above in 'Required version of Moodle'. This is necessary as the theme relies on underlying core code. Move the folder trema to /theme/ folder from your Moodle installation. Access the Moodle Administration page (/admin) for do the necessary updates in your database.

For uninstalling trema you must change the theme. And in /theme/ remove the folder trema.

See the demo site

A demo site showing all available features of Theme Trema.


Documentation is available in Theme Trema.


The theme trema use the particles.js a lightweight JavaScript library for creating particles in login.

    Hello. Like all the above, I am also very happy with the neatness of theme.

    However, my issue is that the three-line menu icon on the top left corner of the screen is not appearing with me. There is a blank white box in its place. Can you kindly guide me what to do. Do I need to copy a file in some folder?

    KInd Regards,

    How to i list my courses under categories rather than just a list of all available courses? I'm going to have HUNDREDS of Courses, I need these to be categorized properly.
    I'm kinda not liking the fact that this was removed from the functionality, it really doesn't make sense
    I really like this theme, but if I am not able to list categories on the main page or any other page instead of ajust a ton of available courses that students have to spend a lot of time navigating through, then it's a waste of time for me to learn this theme.

    @Muhammad Nabeel Musharraf,
    We fixed this issue in the last release, please update your theme version.

    @Adegoke Badejo,
    The Moodle has the settings "custommenuitems" for this issue and we just improved it adding an icon for the first parameter.
    Example: fa-puzzle-piece Courses | MOODLE_URL/course

    @Luis Armando Nieves De la Hoz
    Do you want to change the image just for mobile? If the answer is yes, you can do it using media querys with CSS.

    Hi @Suzana de Andrade Ferreira,

    In this moment you can do not resize the small logo just by adding CSS, please add this to your Moodle SCSS and change the value 35px according to your necessities:
    nav.navbar .logo img {
    max-height: 35px;

    Or you can change by yourself the line to call the logo instead of small logo.

    Hello @Informatica Percimon,

    We don't undestand what is your issue with particles. You can add particles in trema global settings or configure an image for login page.
    In MOODLE_URL/admin/settings.php?section=logos you can add the logo from your website.

    Can you explain better your issue in github?

    Ps.: some pictures will help us to help you.

    Muchas gracias
