This is a contributed (third party) filter for Moodle written by Julian (Moodleman) Ridden and shared on Moodle.org

Essential is a three column Responsive theme based on Bootstrap for Moodle 2.5 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 Moodle Tracker

Filter Objectives

The aim of this theme was to provide a template that challenged what could be done with theme design. To create a Moodle instance that looked more like a professional standalone website and less like a Moodle instance.

This theme will not suit all audiences because of this. For a full list of contributed themes including Rocket to find one that meets your needs please check the Moodle Plugins database.
