Essential Theme by @Moodleman released as a functional Beta (ready for a site near you)


The Essential Theme made its debut at the 2013 iMoot this year and the theme is awesome. Clean, very sharp, all leveraging the Bootstrap framework and adding a really great user experience. While there were some bugs when it launched, in the wake of iMoot Julian‘s tackled all of the issues raised and fixed the bugs readying a release in Beta (which he did on July 3rd).
