Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 1.9. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Theme directory.
In the standard Moodle distribution, all themes are placed in the theme/ directory.
From version 1.7, moodle will support changing the location which themes are stored in and used with the theme selector.
More information about the content of a typical theme directory/folder can be found in Theme basics
Change themes default directory for site
Starting from Moodle 1.7, the storage location of themes may be altered, using the variables $CFG->themewww and $CFG->themedir. Themes from placed in the directory specified by these variables will then be available for selection using the theme selector.
For example, should you wish to place themes in a subdirectory called 'my_moodle_themes', your config.php might look like this:
$CFG->wwwroot = 'http://my.moodle.site.edu'; $CFG->dirroot = '/var/www/my.moodle.site.edu/public_html'; $CFG->themewww = $CFG->wwwroot . '/my_moodle_themes'; $CFG->themedir = $CFG->dirroot . '/my_moodle_themes';
