Moodle 2 Theme Engine

Miscellaneous Settings

This section of AutoTheme enables you to change the login info link location, modify the corner rounding on the headers and blocks, set the heading height, spacing, highlighting, etc.

Change the settings here and save changes to see the results. For example, often the login info. link is hidden or hard to read against dark theme backgrounds.
Login info move

For example, at the default setting the login info link is hard to read against the dark background.

login info move

We can move it down so it is displayed over a lighter background by putting in 100px in the "Login info Top" field - this moves the link 100px down from the top. Save changes and we can see the link in the new location.

Other settings on this page work in the same way:
