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.

Hey @~Z~Man - I cant use your theme because the component "Anonymous Registration" is not working. It does work fine when I switch to another theme. Any idea what might be wrong?

German Michael Zülsdorff Replied 2 years ago

Yup, fixed with 1.23 now.
And thanks for reporting!

Admittedly this message is misleading and will be improved with Ossn 5.3:

The real reaon:
Former (already installed) versions of themes and components need to be deleted FIRST, before they can be upgraded.

So ....
enter your themes section,
activate Goblue
delete GreenByGreen
install the new version of GreenByGreen
and activate it

hi @~Z~ Man . thank you for your update ,, but when I try to install it, it said "Unable to install theme. Make sure it is compatible with the OSSN version you are using."

German Michael Zülsdorff Replied 2 years ago

Thank you for reporting ~ odhead ~,
the issue is fixed in V1.22.
