Moodle 2 Theme Engine

Editing your theme

Once you have set the RL Master theme as the default theme for your site (or your user) you can start editing the theme. To edit the theme, click the RL Master theme's name:

Loading RL Master

  1. Go to the "Settings" tab, Appearance/Themes
  2. Open the RL Master theme.

If you do not have at least version 2.1.2 (on Moodle 2.1) or 2.2.2 (on Moodle 2.2) of the RL Master theme, you will need to clear your theme cache each time you make a change to see the results of your changes. If you update to the latest version of the RL Master theme, you will your changes as soon as you click the save button when editing a theme. As of RL Master 2.1.2/2.2.2 you do not need to turn on Theme designer mode anymore and should turn it off if you have turned it on.

When you click the RL Master link you will see the first screen of the RL Master configuration screen. We will explain the controls here in detail in subsequent pages.
