Template:Moodle 1.7

In the standard Moodle distribution, all themes are placed in the theme/ directory.

From version 1.7, moodle will fully support changing the location which themes are stored in.

Changing theme Location

Starting from Moodle 1.7, the 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 be able to be selected 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';
