A simple theme optimized for mobile usability



  • fixed missing sidebar bug


  • use 3 columns throughout complete theme
  • include bootstrap css in backend editor
  • fixed position of profile extra menu dropdown in mobile view


  • make use of full screen width if visitor is not logged in or OssnChat component has been disabled


  • applied fix for Firefox dropdown style


  • startpage footer fix applied to login- and resetlogin pages


  • startpage footer fixed at the bottom
  • new green loading icon, added color and transparency to loading layer


  • fixed styling of member icons in several places, chat window topbar color, tooltip of friendslist on the right


  • fixed issue with topbar and left menu overlapping the editor in fullscreen mode (thanks to Ranjan!)


  • replaced ResizeObserver() by own function to avoid issues with Safari, Edge and maybe other/older browsers which are still not supporting this goodie
  • added a little more bottom padding to the left sidebar menu


  • SVG support added to admin backend editor
    (working with HTML-Sidebar, SitePages and CustomPages)
  • added missing favicon
  • different background colors fixed


  • group menu appearance adopted to profile menu (drop down in mobile view)
  • Login directly from startpage (no more reload)
  • fixed language strings for cover dragging instructions


  • sidebar footer removed (as it makes no sense as long as the sidebar is scrolling out of focus - it'll be available again with a new component soon)
  • added drop-down profile menu for mobile devices


  • fixed missing profile-menu issue


  • fade out sidebar footer if bottom footer is in place
  • added language string for personal (member) section in left menu


  • Initial release

Well, Now the components are required to be more flexible rather than hard coded.

Well, no bad idea ideed.
But difficult to achieve. Because all changes you mentioned are not theme related, but component related. That is:
1. it would need a change in the Blog component to display a button instead of a text link
2. Ossn themes basically only define the place (left column in this case) where to display menu entries, while the entries themselves are dynamically generated by the corresponding components.

Thanks Zetman for fixing those issues, In this theme I felt two more places of Improvements
1. On the all Blogs page, I fell there should be a button for the Sort by members / Short by date rather than a simple text.
2. It would be nice to relocate the position of my Blogs and the names of the Joined Groups in the Personal sub menu as shown in the following figure...

Thank you for your feedback Ranjan.
Actually, with 1.14 I implemented a wrong check for content availability in the right sidebar.
I have fixed that and installed V 1.15 at your site. It's working correctly now.

I followed your instruction but it didn't work for me

Okay, in order to crosscheck

  • switch to Goblue theme
  • while on admin backend, enter some stuff via Configure -> HTML Sidebar and save
  • click View Site
  • does the stuff you just entered appear in the right column? if not, you have an issue with the HTML sidebar component
  • if stuff is visible, switch to GreenByGreen and view site again
  • sidebar stuff should be visible on friends and photos page

Just did it that way and it's working for me. If your site looks different, add a demo account and I'll try to verify the issue tomorrow.

For me the sidebar is not working with version 1.14 on desktop, I tried with two different browser firefox and brave browser, but no luck.

I agree that the friends column is too wide, but instead of changing the row view I decided to add a right column to these kind of pages.
Simply because the inner content structure is being controlled by core Ossn and can't be re-arranged the easy way and without breaking compatibility.
Feel free to make use of this new extra column by adding something to the HTMLsidebar component.

Thanks Zetman, for fixing this issue, I thought it might take few days but fix was quick, but this time I came up to suggest few improvement:
1. The friends list and Members list does not looks good, it's using a lot of space to show the names in row wise, so i suggest this can be improved as shown in the following image.

2. Moving the buttons in the above page as shown bellow

3. It will be OK to have a transparent background for the album that are been created but it does not look good to have a transparent background in the Profile cover as shown bellow:
