1.7 theme upgrade
Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 1.9. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: 1.7 theme upgrade.
Changeable theme directory
1.7 provides support for specifying an alternative theme storage directory which works with the theme selector. Developers should read the Development:Theme directory guide to ensure their themes start to use the appropriate variables to work with this feature. Administrators can read Theme directory to see how to take advantage of this feature.
What is new in the Moodle 1.7 standard theme?
The following links give you an overview of the changes in the header, footer, config.php and the CSS files from the actual 1.6.x to 1.7.x version. When you open the linked pages you will see all changes made in that file.
You can add these changes to your theme header, footer and CSS files to update them for Moodle 1.7.
These html pages show only those parts of the files which are different, not the whole file. The line numbers of the 1.6 and 1.7 files will help you locate the areas. If you need to apply the changes to completely different files, you may search for the old (1.6) property in your files and replace it with the new/changed one.
