  • custom color and logo editor on admin backend

  • chat on mobile devices

  • separate 'My Groups' page instead of numerous entries in the sidebar menu
  • separate section keeping your personal stuff
  • floating widgets allowing usage of full screen width on large displays

Backup / Restore

Starting with release V 2.3, GreenByGreen comes with a backup/restore mechanism that takes care of keeping your modifications.
Whenever you disable GreenByGreen (= switch to a different theme) the following files will be saved to your Ossn data directory:

  • favicon.ico
  • logo.png (your site's frontend logo)
  • logo_admin.jpg (your admin backend logo)
  • frontpage.css
  • light_mode.css
  • dark_mode.css
  • as well as the 3 accompanying pdf files listing your currently chosen colors
  • site_custom_css.php (holding your custom css changes and additions)

Whenever you enable GreenByGreen these files will be restored to the theme directory, making your site instantly look the same again without any further manual interaction.


Before manually applying any CSS changes to GreenByGreen, make friends with the comfortable admin backend and asure they can't be applied there in a much more easier way.
Manual CSS changes and additions must be saved in site_custom_css.php, only. Don't touch any of the other files since they are being modified and managed programmatically.

Will this theme ever be updated to the new ossn version?

German Michael Zülsdorff Replied 6 months ago

I'd suggest to make a component out of it. That's the best way to get feedback on your own code.

In the end of OssnProfile/plugins/default/js/OssnProfile.php I change to

Ossn.RegisterStartupFunction(function () {
        $(document).ready(function () {
            window.addEventListener("orientationchange", function () {
            }, false);
            $('.profile-cover').on('mouseenter', function () {
            $('.profile-cover').on('mouseleave', function () {

and add showRotateTip function:

  function showRotateTip() {
        var windowsize = $(window).width();
        var classTooltipPosition = '.profile-cover';
        if (windowsize < 480) {
            $(classTooltipPosition).attr('data-toggle', 'tooltip');
            $(classTooltipPosition).attr('data-placement', 'auto');
            $(classTooltipPosition).attr('title', '<?php echo ossn_print('profile:cover:rotate:mobile'); ?>');
            $(classTooltipPosition).tooltip({animation: true});
        } else {
            $(classTooltipPosition).attr('data-toggle', 'tooltip');
            $(classTooltipPosition).attr('data-placement', 'auto');

Also, I add profile:cover:rotate:mobile into locale\

Can you suggest some improvements into my code? You are more familiarized with me in OSSN :-)

If you like, just share that code yourself, Rafael. ;)

Although the component is not available for OSSN 6, can you share your messaging solution for screen rotation on smartphones? I believe this is a feature that should be in every theme.

Can confirm, this really does crash your site :D

This is my theme, what do we need to do to get it back working. I can't live without it.

German Michael Zülsdorff Replied 9 months ago

Thank you for your feedback, Jack.

I love this theme, and so the obvious question comes in, will this be updated soon for ossn 6.0?
