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.

    Amazing looking theme!

    I have some questions about it though.
    Is it possible to customize the particles at the login page more than just the color?
    And do you have some documentation on the theme somewhere? The link in the description above just takes me to the demo site, with very limited documentation.

    Unfortunately for now we only have the color settings, we need to add the other options in the future. But you can perform this customization by replacing the theme/ trema/particles.json file, use to test different settings and generate the new file. Add "fps_limit": 40," right after the first curly brace, this key was added to improve performance.

    The documentation we hope to release soon together with the version compatible with Moodle 3.7.

    Awesome theme!

    But one question here is there anyway to make visible "Available course" without logging in with any account type at the front page?

    After logging in as guest or any account type is showing all available courses.

    Thanks Yan.

    Hi there Yan naing,

    I don't know if I get your point but I think that you are talking about the frontpage list of courses.
    Yes, you can add for any user.
    See this instructions:

    Hi there vousmaei maei,

    You should access /admin/settings.php?section=logos to add your logos.

    And /admin/settings.php?section=themesettings to add custom navbar icons.
    Do something like this is settings custommenuitems:

    This theme is AWESOME but I two problem's with it. First with forum activity - the users can't reply on forum because the buttons are not visible. You can click on it and reply but users don't see buttons.
    Second problem - and it's a big problem is in test activity. When somebody try to end test he can't click on save all answers and end test because the button is hidden by other activity on course (even hidden activity). The activity title is on the first stage and it's hiding the end test button. Do you plan to fix it? Other way i must to use other theme (after theme change everything is okay).

    Good morning, I wanted to ask you how to make the main page button referenced with the available courses? change the Frontpage button href = # frontpage-cards to the reference of the available courses.

    Thank you very much and excellent work.

    Isce Sec. Docente, this can be changed by setting "Frontpage button href" in:

    Site administration > Appearance > Themes > Trema > Content > Frontpage button href

    Change de value to:

    If the title get hidden by the navbar, you can add something like this in the "Raw SCSS" setting to add some space:
    div#frontpage-available-course-list:target {
    padding-top: 5rem;

    You can also use a link to another page instead of the anchor in the href setting.

    Really very wonderful theme! Visually clean and light, and beautiful!
    I have a question, maybe simple, when we edit the html using the atto editor, we only see a few lines and it is difficult to edit, because the cursor cannot access. Can you see that? Or just me?

    Eman, you can host your image somewhere to have a url to it. If you dont have direct access to your server, you can add the image to de "main menu" block in your moodle's site home to get a static url.

    And them, in Site administration > Appereance > Themes > Trema > General Settings > Raw SCSS, add:

    #frontpage-banner {
    background-image: url(https://YOUR_BACKGROUND_IMAGE_URL);
