I disagree with this approach of creating a custom theme. Isn't it better to only copy some of the files from the standard folder, then create a custom .css file and refer back to the standard stylesheets files using config.php? Hans de Zwart 08:44, 20 February 2008 (CST)

Although I'm no themes expert, I entirely agree with Hans above. This article is not particularly good advice. A small point, the Firefox addon "Firebug" is the best thing I've found for this kind of CSS reverse engineering. --Howard Miller 14:25, 11 May 2008 (CDT)

I'm some what annoyed that I created a theme for my moodle on a test environment after reading up about how to create custom themes using the guides from this site (offical source for such things) only to find that my live environment is Moodle 2.0.3 and that my theme is not compatible. So I come back to the moodle site expecting to find some documentation on editing a 2.0.3 compatible theme to find there are no such guides or instructions. I'm all for improvements, but it is a bit rough that there isn't any documentation. -Matt Hamon 16:14, 18 May 2011 (CDT)
