Gareth Barnard is seeking $437 to update the ever-popular Essential Theme to Moodle 3.2 and 3.3. I’m supporting him once more using Moodlegarage.com to facilitate the fund-raising from Essential and Moodle fans far and wide.
This important theme provides users and sites a distinct template to customize their Moodle experience which has continued to evolve and provide a great, responsive, and flexible aesthetic.
Gareth, once more, is not just ensuring compatibility but working to incrementally improve the theme in a couple of ways:
- Improving / checking the CSS to ensure that it is compatible.
- Check / add new icons.
- Check that the overridden course format classes operate correctly.
- Remove and check all RTL styles as new CSS ‘flip’ mechanism in M3.2. Please see ‘RTLCSS-PHP’ – https://github.com/moodlehq/rtlcss-php.
- Investigate if it is possible to use the new core ‘logo’ and ‘compactlogo’ settings instead of those in the theme.
