Essential Theme for Moodle 2.6 now in beta testing


With the impending release of Moodle 2.6 many themes and addons will need to be updated for compatibility. Essential Theme by Julian Ridden has just been released in a non-production beta for Moodle 2.6 testing. The theme brings us the same great responsive functionality we’ve expected from the theme but also adds a few new features:

Post Pages - Post Inline - WIRIS
  • Now uses Font Awesome 4.0
  • Calendar block formatting fixed
  • Now used font-awesome icons on the new edit icons
  • A whole bunch of minor css changes for 2.6

If you’re an Essential Theme user the Moodleman has asked for your assistance in thoroughly testing Essential 2.6 so that it can hit the ground running with the release of Moodle 2.6 later this fall. For more information read on at or download the package from Github:
