This is a port of the Zebra Theme for Moodle 1.9.  It doesn't support the custom colors as easily as Moodle 1.9 version does - but it can be that customized like Moodle.  This is for 1.3.  Download here.  Preview here.

Just wanted to let you guys know that I've been updating this recently, it's now hosted at github and you can grab the latest version here:  https://github.com/thedannywahl/Zebra_4_Mahara

I probably wouldn't download it for a while unless you're tracking it with git because I'll be doing a lot of commits in the coming weeks, but it works now for FF 3.6+ and Safari 5 (probably others, but untested).  I don't have a public dev site for it, but the previous demo link still works, but it's not fully updated yet.  Here's a snapshot: http://mahara.org/artefact/file/download.php?file=171899

Hello Daniel,

Cool! I also put a link on the Contributed themes page on the wiki at https://wiki.mahara.org/index.php/Themes/Contributed_themes - you can make changes as your mahara.org account works there as well.

Cheers

Kristina

If anyone is feeling brave (1.5.0dev brave) please clone this theme and give it a spin.  I think it's almost "finished":

Supports subnav and dropdown, fully styled, fully rebuilt to use the new raw divs instead of tables, and only one custom tpl file.

Supports 3 different gradient types in the menu and body : light, dark, none (just search the comments and comment out the 2 you don't want)

Hi,

I was brave enough. And my first word will be "Thank you". You theme is very nice and work well. I played about 15 minutes with it on my different pages without any trouble.

My first remark is maybe about the drop down menu. Some items are sometimes long in foreign languages, so they are written on two lines, when other themes separate menu items with a thin line, yours doesn't which make it more difficult to read and weaken the user experience.

Apart of this (at the moment but I will play a little more later) I have nothing else to say but "bravo".

Cheers,

the menu item width has to be a fixed width, but since the menu items themselves are static (you can't add custom items) I can make it wider/narrower based on language.

Tell me how wide you need the item to be, or what language you're using and I'll look into adjusting it.

I don't think you have to change the width of the menu. Other themes don't. But it would be fine if we have a thin line that separates the items one from another.

Okay, now I understand what you're saying.  There should be a divider, but it could be that you're using a browser that doesn't support rgba values, I'll add some hex values for fallback.
