Zebra 2 is a contributed (third party) theme for Moodle 2 written by Danny (d_wahl) Wahl.

Theme Objectives

There are two main goals in the design of this theme. The first is to provide a responsive layout. This is achieved by using the CSS 3 media queries. The second is to provide simple, yet robust customization of the look and feel. This is achieved by using a custom settings page housing almost 40 settings.

Theme Settings

Zebra provides a variety of theme settings. Below is a list of all the settings broken down into general categories.

Header Settings

Logo URL - logourl

The path to your logo image. Image sources support the following methods:

This setting is handled by the function zebra_set_logourl() in the theme library.

Default value:

logo/logo

The default value uses the Image Resolver API. The actual location relative to zebra theme folder is: zebra/pix/logo/logo.png

Example values:

logo/myschoollogo
http://domain.com/theme/image.php?theme=zebra&image=logo&rev=1&component=theme
http://domain.com/path/to/image.jpg
/path/to/file/companylogo.png

Specific rule in core.css:

#page-header {
    background: url([[setting:logourl]]);
}

Logo image height - logourlheight

The height that the theme allows for the logo image in the page-header div. This setting is handled by the function zebra_set_logourlheight() in the theme library.

Default value:

100px

Example values:

50px
5%
3em

Specific rule in core.css:

#page-header {
    min-height: [[setting:logourlheight]];
}

If you do not have a logo it is recommended to leave this setting at its default value (100px) to leave room of the profile picture in the header (if userpic is enabled).


Alternate text - headeralt

Show user picture - userpic
