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.

As the page page lodes both the footers shows us and after when the page is fully loaded the footer from the sidebar disappears, I have not observed that the page was not fully loaded and I reported you in the form of issue, well can't this process be verification be done in background in order to avoid its view.
I am including screen cast bellow:

Could you send a screenshot please?

I have found in the blog/view/../.... urls its not working, there are two footers on this page.

I have seen a file called pagination, so I am wondering why not the theme use this feature to avoid two different footers.

Thanks for reviewing, Nicolae-Ilie.

You are right! I'll have a look into this ...

Issue fixed with V1.2
(I only wanted to get rid of that "Update info" button - but removed the complete menu by mistake, sorry)

Thank you for your findings, Ranjan.

As for duplicate footers: The idea was that with longer existing communities the newsfeed would grow and grow. And so the majority of members would seldom scroll to the bottom and as a consequense never see the default footer anymore.
But you are right: There'll be still pages which aren't that long - thus having 2 footers in these cases isn't very elegant. That's why V1.1 keeps track whether the default footer is in place and fades out the additional one.

Members: Actually I had something like "personal section" in mind - it wasn't meant as general header for the menu. But good you asked, because I forgot to make it translatable and changed it to "Personal" now.

I tried this theme, but this theme is showing two different footers one at the base of the page and other in the base of the side bar base, and secondly it would be great if the terms member is replaced with Dashboard as I feel this term is more neutral.
