Moodle 2.5 Theme Engine

Remote-Learner's Moodle 2.5 Theme Engine

The Remote-Learner Moodle 2.5 Theme Engine:

Wouldn't it be nice if you could edit Moodle 2 themes with simple online forms? Select colors with a color picker? Easily upload and re-use images in your themes? See the effects of your changes right away?

We think so too, so Remote-Learner is now providing this capability for all clients.

This tool enables you to edit your theme online, with no need for ftp'ing CSS files, and many settings can be changed via simple, interactive webforms. For example you can change the color of an element by choosing it and selecting a color in the interactive color picker:

RL Master Colors tab

The Theme Engine also lets you enter CSS directly for more advanced users and effects.
