As a note there is one more theme created for eFront enterprise (based on the blue theme but a totally different icon-set).

Everyone can check it from the demo section of eFront (demo.efrontlearning.net)

Looks like the "Default" theme is inching ahead in the polls :-)

Are there aggregated stats from the eFront hosted solutions?

In addition to the most used theme, would be curious:

1) Average # Users
2) Average # Courses / Lessons
3) What is the most popular Module download / What is the most popular Module installed (are they the same?)

Is there value in providing these kind of "anonymous" statistics?

For many people the opinion is biased since they are used to the default theme.

About modules, from the interest they generate I would say that the DimDim module is the one that attracts most people (videoconferencing).

I would love to see themes generated from the community. We may create a paid contest during March with this topic... so build your theme creating skills :)

I think, that could be because of the missing chat in the blue-theme. Will there be a chance to have the chat in blue, too?

In the incremental 3.6 updates scheduled every second friday we will include a Facebook like chat.

We decided that this option would be much better than the current embedded chat that works only with the sidebar themes.

Just be a bit patient :)

To show and share my first attempt to build an eFront Theme, here my result. Whoever is interested in using this theme can drop a PM to me with e-mail adress. I will send it. It is based on the theme blue and not tweaked very much, all new free icons from fatcow and some modificated by me.

It`s easy, it`fun and it comes out beautiful making themes with eFront.
In a few days I will have more.

Looks great Shalb.

Did you manually edit the image map to change out the icons or what process did you use?

The thing with the icons really is quite a work. First I searched for free available Icons and choose a set with a lot of icons to have options. I opened this set in one explorer window and the original icon sets (from the default folder, first the 32px) of eFront in another. The work now is to search icons that fit best for what eFront has. I think, i had to modificate about 20-30 on my own (all with the "material" of the downloaded icons). Then I resized the icons, that are identic in the 16px folder and searched the still missing. After that I used the webservice mentioned in the tutorial to create the maps and the css. Althoug it took me one whole day, it was lot of fun and I think the result so far is very satisfying. Tomorrow I will change the rest of the icons, that are not in the map.
