EduGeek Moodle Theme
Over the last couple of weeks i've been dipping in and out of Moodle trying my level best to create a Moodle theme based on the Joomla EduGeek Theme or I think what Joomla calls Templates.
Obviously there are differences between the two system but I have managed to create something which i think looks pretty respectable, but of course i would think that.
I have tried to keep the changes to a minimum and based everything on the standard moodle theme and built on top of that.
Attached to this post are a few screen shots which should give you a good taste of the theme, I will be releasing the theme as a zip file once I have cleared up the CSS, PHP and Images files and of course added some comments.
Feedback greatly appreciated - are there any moodlers out there who are interested in this?

Looking good, a would say a major thing that lets moodle themes in general down is the icons. Might be worth trying to find some nicer ones than the moodle defaults. Some possible available from here: famfamfam.com: Icons
It's looking good, well done!

Icons currently in Dev, just making sure I have them all covered.
Im probably going to use the icons from the esocratesorg theme, which can be downloaded from here:
But with it being an older theme its missing one or two icons which i might just lift from FamFam.

Very nice I will keep an eye on this.

Looks good! Don't use Moodle though unfortunately.

As promised, and as the Moodle icons also look a bit tiresome in places I have replaced a significant number of them with icons from: famfamfam.com
Really finishes the theme off - See screen shot below
I might as well release the icon set as an Moodle Theme Icon Set once its all been completed. Famfamfam.com permission pending....

Looking good, 2 minor criticisms:
Restore and import are next to each other and have the same icon which looks a bit weird/confusing.
I also don't like the heads facing each other for the forum. We use a speech bubble type icon for ours, can send over if you like?

Unfortunately that's Moodle for you, both restore and import have the same icon.
Only a code change would correct this, attached is a screen shot of the default icon set for Moodle.
Also attached is an image of the new Forum icon, I still need to source one or two of the icons for the Modules in Moodle.

Here are my updated Icons for the EduGeek Moodle Theme,
Does any body know of a cheap Moodle hosting solution, I basically just want to showcase my Theme so im not interested in many people using the site as everything will be guest access.
I would obviously need to have access to the server via SSH or FTP to update the theme on a regular basis?

Could edugeek possible host it as it does for joomla? If not I can probably offer hosting so long as it doesn't kane bandwidth.

I would need to be able to offer the theme for download, its a huge 1.2mb, and any traffic from Edugeek and the Moodle Themes page on Moodle.org.
SYSMAN_MK did mention adding it as an EduGeek Project and hosting along side Joomla but its gone a bit quiet since EduGeek went down.

Sent you a PM, hopefully edugeek will be able to host it eventually but I've set you up some space to get you started.
16th July 2008, 06:22 PM #14
Will be hosting as soon as projects is back up.
