A Moodle theme is a pre-designed user "view" (interface) that can be changed by the site administrator, teacher, or student.  While robust, it does not affect how Moodle functions, just how it looks.  Moodle comes with a standard set of themes and there is a [http://moodle.org/mod/data/view.php?id=6552  large free library] available to download.

Themes may be [[Theme settings|selected]] at site level, course level and/or user level as long as the Moodle site has been configured to allow changes at these levels.
 
 
 
== Installing a theme ==
 
 
 
To install a theme:
 
# Unzip the .zip file to an empty local directory.
 
# Upload folder to your web server to the /moodle/theme/[Theme Name]. (Replace [Theme Name] with the name of the theme you have downloaded.) Ensure the new theme folder and its contents are readable by the webserver.  Change Read and Write permissions (CHMOD) for the files and folder to 755 - Owner read/write/execute, Group read/execute, Everyone read/execute.  Incorrect permissions may prevent display of the newly installed theme.
 
# Choose your new theme from within Moodle via ''Administration > Appearance > Themes > Theme selector'' (version 1.7+) or ''Administration > Configuration > Themes'' (older versions).
 
 
 
See [[Installing a new theme]] for more information.
