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.

LOVE IT!!! Actually just installed this on my test server yesterday to try and duplicate what I already have with the old green by green. Gonna be a process! LOL!

One quick note, something I noticed straight off... with the new paper airplane feature, and havbing the ability to actually separate paragraphs... it would be an aesthetic improvement if the first character typed would start on the NEXT line AFTER the name of the user replying. In multiple paragraph replies it would look MUCH better.

Am going to be working extensively with this theme over the next couple of weeks. THANK YOU!

Hi ~Z~ Man I got your point. Thanks man! 😃

German Michael Zülsdorff Replied 1 year ago

First, you said your picture didn't display - and I already doubted that.
Next, you provided the picture for investigation.
And in the end it turns out you didn't use the provided picture at all, but a different one?!?

Sorry, but I'm tired of wasting my time with reports like that.

Hi ~Z~ Man

Thanks for the 2.5 update and response 😃

The actual image you downloaded is the original image from facebook not the resized image 300px in height that I used in my GreenByGreen theme. I use facebook to link photos here. And I don't think if GreenByGreen theme can accept 200px in height. Please see sample photos below.

the cover photo must be atleast 1040x300 or greater

Overall i find your GreenByGreen Theme pretty cool.. 😃

re 1.) Profile Cover not visible on android phone and pc.

I have downloaded your image: the height is 980 px. While the theme's cover image area height is just 200 px.
So what kind of hyper intelligence do you expect from a simple image uploader? How should it 'know' which part of the much larger image you want to display? Top left? A center part? Bottom right? No way.
And right that's why there IS that reposition option and it's up to the user to decide which part will be the visible part.

Sorry ... can't reproduce it on my site.
Just tried with Edge and Ossn cache enabled.
Doing a right-click -> inspect on the logo gives something like
And whenever uploading a logo and/or flushing Ossn cache, the trailing


in fact IS changing, and this way invalidating the browser's cache and forcing a reload of the latest image.

Strange then my friend I'm not sure.. I have just however noticed if i go to admin backend turn of cache for the site the logo re appears as should.. soon as i enable cache again it goes back to the standard "your logo" that comes with GbG.. weird one lol.. Anyway look forward to new release and go from there.. thanks again for your efforts and theme!
