=== Style customization ===
+
[[ca:Moodle Mobile]]
 
+
[[de:Mobiles Moodle]]
The app can also retrieve your custom styles from your Moodle site. Since the app is a HTML5 app, you can apply safely any CSS, CSS2 and CSS3 style.
+
[[es:Moodle Mobile]]
 
+
[[fr:App Moodle]]
In your Moodle installation go to Plugins / Web services / Mobile and enter in the mobilecssurl field a valid URL pointing to a CSS file containing your custom styles.
+
[[it:App Moodle]]
 
 
The CSS should be placed inside your Moodle installation (in your custom theme or inside a local plugin)
 
 
 
Once the user is logged in the app, there is a periodical process that retrieves your remote CSS files for applying your custom styles.
 
 
 
Notice that on the first time a user opens the app, he will see the default "orange" style. Your custom styles will be applied once the user has added a site in the app.
