      Description

      I think it would be good to do a clean up in the Moodle themes deliver with the 2.0 Moodle package.
      There are far too many themes in the package and too similar.

      Theme Selector:
      1. the Moodle Theme Selector could be a bit prettier. Preview pictures are all in a different format (sometimes a part of the screen, a picture, an embedded html,...). Most of the time it's difficult to have a good idea before to click on the preview link. We could put a small screen capture of the entire screen for every theme. Then when you move the mouse on the picture (or click on it), the picture could be displayed quickly in a bigger format (javascript, popup which can be closed when you click on the picture...). We can still keep the preview link, but it would be better if the preview displayed the front page or a course page.
      2. some great theme as "Alternatives (Newbury College)", "Autumn", "Funky" could be edited and delivered with the 2.0 package.
      3. I don't see the point to have the same theme in ten different color. All theme should have documentation: how to edit the theme, the images/file that need to be edited in order to match your company should be placed in a special folder.
      4. We could have a link to Moodle.org themes page, in order to download new theme.

      Moodle.org themes page:
      1. A quick rating system
      2. Sort by update date, rate or number of download the last 30 days

      If you have some other idea don't hesitate to put here.

          Hopefully the GSOC2008 customisable theme project will be good enough to include in 2.0.

          We have detected that this issue has been inactive for over two years and also did not collect many votes. It is possible that it has been already implemented in a more recent version of Moodle, or it is not highly demanded. There are unlimited number of ways Moodle functinality can be expanded and improved but we would like to concentrate on the features that will benefit majority of users, and which can not be implemented as plugins. If you have a suggestion for improving Moodle core, and there is no open issue for it in the tracker, please start a new forum discussion to see how many other users agree with you, and then create a new issue providing as many details as possible.
