Theme Elegance 2.9 is written by Bas Brands and is a contributed (third party) rewrite of the original Elegance theme for Moodle written by Danny Wahl and Julian (Moodleman) Ridden.

Theme elegance is using the Boostrap3 parent theme adding various customisation options. It includes an elegant base design but you are free to choose your own colours, backgrounds, transparency and more to adopt the visual identity to your needs.

Elegance is a 2 to 3 column Responsive theme written with the Bootstrap 3 framework for Moodle 2.9 designed to provide a more professional and clean website focused look and feel. It provides Admins with an image slider and Marketing spots on the homepage to drive users where you need to. The theme also makes strong use of Font Awesome to provide icons throughout the design.

The theme is highly customisable through Moodle's theme settings. You can adjust images, text and colours all without changing code. As this theme has several advanced functions, this page exists to provide some basic instruction on it's use. Please be sure to target any questions related to this theme in the Theme's forums at moodle.org and bugs to the [Github issue list]
