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.

Yeah, you're addressing a long-term bootstrap/Firefox issue, see
The fix of volomike has been applied to 1.12 now.

Drop-down menus are looking different, in the register form as well as in the edit page, please have a look below

It will be great if all the drop-down menus looks similar.

No, the loading icon is pure css that comes included with each theme

Since I had to add a small startpage fix anyway, I added a new green spinner to V1.9 now.

Thanks Zetman for fixing all the issues, I have seen the pre-loader are same in every themes, so I am wondering with one question, Does the core controllers the pre-loader in every theme?

Hi Ranjan,
issues 1 to 3 are fixed with V1.8

tooltips are still not 100% (longer names may flicker on toggling) but that's no theme issue but caused by the underlying bootstrap library.

I think It was my fault I didn't reported you in correct way, may be this time my reporting can help you to fix some of this problem.
1. Pop-up showing the name in the right friend list is not looking good it appears as the arrow is not attached properly to the pop-up name
2. The small chat box header part is using the same blue default theme color which does not look good.
3. In the message page at online/messages/all and on the blog view page at online/blog/view/1/ is showing the circular image which doesn't fits well with the theme.
Well I am attaching a image of this issues, please have a look...

Stupid me: I didn't read your first report carefully and didn't realize you were addressing the fullscreen mode of the EDITOR. Just read 'fullscreen' and was focused to the browser in fullscreen mode. Thank you for insisting to have a second look, Ranjan.

fixed with 1.7 now.

I am not sure with the function part in the OSSN, The same issue persisted for me I tried on two different brouser on my linux box with Firefox Browser version 72.0.1 (64-bit), I capture the screen cast and sharing with you, please have a look
enter image description here

for Brave browser details is Version 1.2.42 Chromium: 79.0.3945.117 (Official Build) (64-bit) and the issue look like this

Z-index fix works well for me on linux, but I am not sure this fix will work on other platform or not, because I don't have windows or mac to test.
