How to Install Moodle Snap Theme : Squirrel Hosting
Snap for moodle is a theme that has been released (currently only on github). It is mobile responsive and a very clean designed theme. The below guide will show you how to install the Snap theme on your moodle site.
Step 1 : Download Snap theme from GitHub
Visit https://github.com/moodlerooms/moodle-theme_snap and download the theme by clicking the "download ZIP" icon.
Once you have downloaded the file, open up the zip and rename the folder 'moodle-theme_snap-master' to 'snap'
Log into your moodle admin and click "site administration".
Step 2 : Install Snap onto moodle
Then Install plugins.
From the 'Plugin Type' dropdown, choose 'Theme (theme)'
Click the 'Choose a file' button.
In the 'File Picker' popup, choose 'Upload a file'.
You should now see the select file page. Click the 'Choose File' button and select your moodle snap theme zip file you downloaded earlier. Enter Snap into the 'Save as' box (for easy reference later) and click the 'Upload this file' button.
Once uploaded, it will take you back to the install plugin page. Tick the Acknowledgement then click 'install plugin from the zip file'.
You should now see a plugin validation passed message. (if you don't, try renaming the zip file itself to snap.zip then repeating the above steps). Then click 'Install Plugin'.
If you get an upgrade message, click the 'Upgrade moodle database now' button.
Click the continue button on the 'upgrading to new version' page.
You should now see the "new settings - Snap" setup page. Fill in any fields you require.
Once complete, click the 'Save Changes' button.
You should now see your moodle admin homepage. Click 'Appearance' from the menu.
Select 'Themes' then 'Theme Selector'.
Click 'Clear theme caches'.
When the page reloads, scroll down and choose 'Use Theme' below 'Snap'.
Thats it, you should now see the 'New theme saved' message and the Snap Moodle theme should now be active.
All that's left to do is customise the theme to use your images etc. Check out http://kb.moodlerooms.com/article/148/administrator for a good guide on how to customise the Snap theme.
