That means: We are now 3 users? Madness!
Well, in fact, it was not least YOUR request for more usable width that inspired me to develop this theme.
Thank you for your feedback, James.

yes, the menu is intended to stay fixed on that large kind of screens.

Thanks @zetman for implementing those fixes, I am wondering with the left menu button in the header section, does it is related with the screen resolutions as I am not getting on 1366x768 (16:9) and 1360x768 (16:9) resolution where as on 1024x768 (4:3) it's showing.

Hi Ranjan,

I was able to implement your latest suggestions into 1.16.
Instead of blowing up the Personal section with dozens of seperate group entries, GreenByGreen exclusively comes with its own "MyGroups" page now, listing all your own groups and groups you are a member of. In the latter case the group owner gets displayed. Actually this kind of code shouldn't be part of a theme, but I'm looking forward it'll be made part of OssnGroups in the future.

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

German ~Z~ Man Replied 2 months ago

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
