GreenByGreen

[ Download | Support ]


A simple responsive theme optimized for mobile usability, featuring ...

  • fixed topbar

enter image description here


  • two member selectable color presets (light and dark)

enter image description here


  • custom color and logo editor on admin backend

enter image description here


  • chat on mobile devices

enter image description here


  • 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.

Customizing

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.

@~Z`Man Can you help me which part to edit the height for the group's profile cover? It's kinda shorter ... I created a clone of his theme of yours and edited some parts of it like the color scheme and the profile cover photo height... am I allowed to upload it here for you to somehow check it as well? :)

German Michael Zülsdorff Replied 2 years ago

Of course. There are thousend ways to customize a theme.
I'd suggest to

  1. study the Ossn documentation
  2. clone GreenByGreen
  3. apply your own ideas and changes

Hi, is there a way for me to edit the color instead of green?

@Christian
1.34 comes with a home icon in front of the site name now

@John
You can collect and save private stuff of interest by means of the Notes component now.
For sharing things I'd recommend using BIO.

@Z-Man - Instead of clicking the home icon you can click the header's Site Name
on larger screens anytime. Maybe I was too used to it (having the same
feature with other Ossn themes from the very beginning) that it
appeared so obvious to me?!? :) So maybe I shoud add that icon to the
large screen header, too? ... I'm not sure ...

I think this is a good idea. Without wanting to make any comparison, the home icon is in the facebook topbar. for the same reasons.

I was thinking of a consolidation of pages we have created, and maybe those we follow as well?

Ah okay.
But I wouldn't want to make a functionality like that part of a theme.
The basic 'task' of a theme is to arrange, display and style that content which is already part of your site - and not to add/change/remove any content. The latter should be accomplished by a component - in your case something like a personal 'notes' page allowing to enter links to profile pages or whatever ...

Good evening Z.
I was thinking of a consolidation of pages we have created, and maybe those we follow as well?
I have noticed (and appreciate) that we can share pages to other media and they are available even to non members.
How hard is it to add a share option like the blogs?
Thanks again,,,,,
John.

@John
Thank you very much for your feedback. Please explain which kind of pages (links) you'd like to see / planning to have below a "My pages" link.

John Miller -I will agree that it is redundant, the home icon is
fairly self explanatory.

Hi John, the home icon only appears on smartphones, not on PCs, hence my request.
