August 23rd, 2016

Gareth is doing a wonderful job by adding a lot of new features and fixing the existing bugs in one of the most downloaded Moodle Theme ever – Essential theme.

Recently Gareth posted about the release of the minor update version of the Essential theme which includes a lot of fixes for all supported Moodle versions i.e. Moodle 2.9, 3.0 and 3.1.

The most notable new features includes:

  •  Display block region names when editing.
  • Allowing blocks placed at the top of the content column. This feature is funded by Servei de Recursos Educatius, Universitat Rovira i Virgili.

You can check out the complete list of changes in the new version here and here. You can download your copy of the Essential theme from the Moodle plugins database here –

After the release of Moodle 3.2, I believe that the Moodle theme designers will design more awesome themes. Check out the prototype demo of the new theme project for Moodle 3.2 here. Even you can also help in suggesting a new name for the theme also in this forum thread.
