Theme Options

Before you proceed
You should have completed the following steps:
  • Installing the theme
  • Choosing Theme Lambda as your default Moodle theme
  • Adding the menu for the main navigation
If you have missed one of these steps, please go back to the referring section in this document.

Configurable Options

To access the configurable options for Theme Lambda go to Administration > Site Administration > Appearance > Themes > Theme-Lambda.


General Settings Page

You can upload your custom logo here. If you upload a logo it will appear in the header. By default, the dimension of your logo is set to a maximum height of 90px. But you can also choose display your logo with any other height.

Theme Option:

options_logo-01

Result:

options_logo-02


Set Page Width

Here you can choose from the list of page layouts. Available choices are:

  1. Boxed - fix width wide
  2. Boxed - fix width narrow
  3. Boxed - variable width
  4. Full page - fluid width

Note: A boxed layout is a form of layout where the boundary of the main body is clearly defined. Only with a 'boxed layout' you can make use of a background image for your site.

options-page-width

Here you can choose to select a variation for the header with a centered logo. This will also result in a different profile block and a modal login form at the header to fit with the centered logo:

You can select to show your courses in a list or in a grid view. This option will get applied to the list of courses at the Moodle front page, the course category page and - if you are using Moodle version 3.5 or higher - also for the "My courses" block at the dashboard.
