    Hi, I would like to know if there's going to be an update to this theme for 2.8+ also. We are using the theme for a client and are having issues with the main menu no longer showing in a horizontal navbar as before for ie8 users.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    This Moodle doc is for any theme, so it should work OK if you follow the instructions.

    Hi Mary, I was wondering if the newer versions of this theme support easy selection of the language, as in (for example) the drop down in the Essential navbar?

    I can't remember now but I suspect it's the old fashioned ugly one, but I may be wrong! I could try changing it if it is...if you want to use that theme? No problem. smile

    Hi Mary, thanks for your response. Can I just check that to enable the existing language menu, we would just enable the options->langmenu setting in the theme config.php? (per:

    I'll take a look at what we would get and let you know if it works for us!

    I'm new to Moodle (apologies!) but it looks like there is no way to display the full site name in this theme? Full site name is there as an editable option in the theme settings but the information entered doesn't display. I can upload a logo no problem.
