Completion icons ugly and sometimes invisible

    • Testing Instructions:
      Hide

      0a. Ensure that completion is enabled at site and course level.
      0b. Use 'Purge caches' link at bottom of a page - this will not be necessary with a real version update because the version number will have increased.
      0c. You might also need to clear browser cache (not sure why).

      1. Add an activity on the course, such as a forum, set to 'manual' completion.
      2. Add another activity, such as a forum, set to 'automatic' completion when users view the activity.

      • With editing still on, verify that new prettier icons are in use for the editing-on state of the two icons.

      3. Turn editing off.

      • Verify that new prettier icons are in use for the editing-off, not-ticked state of the two icons.
      • Verify that the 'automatic, not ticked' icon is now actually visible (previously it was blank).

      4. Tick the manual-completion icon.

      • Verify that matching 'ticked' icon is used.

      5. Visit the forum and return to main page so that the automatic icon becomes ticked.

      • Verify that matching 'ticked' icon is used.

    • Workaround:
      Hide

      Use a theme that does not use a white background, at least partially ("Binarius" or "Serenity", i.e).
      Replace activity completion icons for a set visible over a white/most backgrounds (hope to get a set of new icons and the location of activity completion icons as a comment to this issue to use this workaround while it is not resolved in trunk)

      Description

      There is an activity completion box (inside it is the tick if/when the activity is completed) next to any completion-tracked activity, but the box is invisible over the usual white background (if you use, i.e. the "Binarius" or "Serenity" themes you can see them partially over the gray right column).
      It is important for the students to know which activities are completion-tracked, in order to know the recommended activities, and as a first step (or last, if all completion-tracked activities are required) to identify the required ones for course completion (see related issue #MDL-26193).
      The fact that there are icons for uncompleted activities with automatic completion, reflects that they are intended to be visually identifiable, so it is a bug that they are not under the default theme and most of the others.
