Standard themes

Moodle has three standard themes: Boost (in 3.2 onwards), Clean, a responsive, bootstrap based theme, and More, a theme customisable from within the admin interface.

'Clean'

Other themes, including themes which were standard in previous versions of Moodle, are available from the Themes section of the Moodle plugins directory.

Example of a customised Boost theme

SchoolDemoBoost.png

The Moodle School demo site, Mount Orange,uses standard Boost with customisations as follows:

  • An image for the front page and a background image need to be uploaded and referenced in the code.
  • Front page topic section:
<div class="frontpage container-fluid">
 
    <div class="jumbotron jumbotron-fluid" style="background-image: url('YOUR UPLOADED FRONT PAGE IMAGE.jpg');">
        <div class="texts">
            <h2>YOUR HEADING</h2>
            <p class="lead">SENTENCE/TAG LINE</p>
        </div>
    </div>
 
    <div class="row-fluid">
        <div class="fp-block col-md-6">
            <h3>SMALLER HEADING</h3>
            <p>Paragraph of text</p>
            <p class="button"><a class="btn btn-primary" href="BUTTON LINK URL">BUTTON TEXT »</a></p>
        </div>
        <div class="fp-block col-md-6">
            <h3>SMALLER HEADING</h3>
            <p>Paragraph of text.</p>
            <p class="button"><a class="btn btn-primary" href="BUTTON LINK URL">BUTTON TEXT »</a></p>
        </div>
    </div>
 
</div>

Theme selector

An administrator can set a theme for the site in Administration > Site administration > Appearance > Themes > Theme selector.

Different themes may be set according to 'device type' - default, legacy (for older browsers), mobile and tablet.

Go to Administration > Site administration > Appearance > Themes > Theme selector

  • Click on the "Select theme" button next to the type you wish to change
  • Scroll down to see the previews of the available themes and click on the "Use theme" button to chose the theme
  • The next screen will provide information about the theme. Click "Continue"

Note 1: Moodle caches themes so if you don't immediately see changed settings that you were expecting, click the "Clear theme caches" button at the top of the Theme selector page.

Note 2: The selected theme may be overridden if user/course or category themes have been allowed in the Theme settings.
