German ~Z~ Man 9 months ago


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

  • imageless startpage for faster loading
    enter image description here

  • fixed topbar and left menu
    enter image description here

  • 'My Groups' page instead of numerous entries in the sidebar menu
    enter image description here

  • usage of full screen width on large displays
  • no more 'success' messages on front-end
  • separate section keeping your personal stuff
    enter image description here

  • space saving dropdown menus on profile- and group pages on mobile devices
    enter image description here


V 1.30

  • if not logged in: redirect any pages which require authentication automatically to the startpage

V 1.29

  • fixed partly incompatibility with the Menubuilder component. It's working flawlessly with V 3.0 now

V 1.28

  • added 'Home' icon to topbar for easier access on cellphones and tablets - the 'Links' menu appears collapsed by default now because the 'News Feed' submenu entry has become almost obsolete this way
    enter image description here

  • added the component TouchScreen CoverImage Dragging as a mandantory pre-requisite - which makes sense because the main idea of this theme is mobile usability - and without cover repositioning wouldn't work on touchscreens

V 1.27

  • added Ossn Chat on mobile devices! You can toggle off the online friends tab in case you don't need it
    enter image description here

  • added Friends online page to Personal menu. This way you may choose to either chat with friends currently online or send them a message
    enter image description here

  • added missing topbar to pages viewed in offline mode (like Term and Conditions)
  • shrinked size of Ossn error page to better fit on mobile devices
  • added support for the Social Login premium component
  • added Chinese language file
  • added Theme Setup on admin backend
    enter image description here

  • cleanup of admin backend on mobile view
    enter image description here

  • changed layout of User List for better usability on mobile devices
    enter image description here


  • fixed incompatibility with AnonymousRegistration component


  • fixed: missing group name on groups without cover image
  • removed: displaying full size ads at the bottom of group pages in tablet view


  • added custom signup form with ability to display the entered password on demand

enter image description here



  • fixed crash in admin backend->useredit if TextareaSupport component is not installed


  • Indonesian language file added, license update


  • don't display Photos section in left menu if OssnPhotos are disabled
  • don't display Message button on profile page if OssnMessages are disabled



  • fixed issue with comment photo attachment preview position


  • compatibility fixes for TextareaSupport 2.5
  • added japanese language file


  • All 'My Groups', 'My Files', 'My Blogs' and similar entries have been moved to the 'Personal' section
  • new separate 'My Groups' page
  • compatibility fix for 'DisableSignup' component


  • 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

Nice one ~Z~ Man! Thank you for this!

Profile and Group cover image sizes are handled in the core part of Ossn - they are not part of my theme.
If you have any questions or issues please open a new thread on the main community page.

Thanks again, cover photo accomplished.
It seems to be a little particular about the image size, where would I look for the config file?

German ~Z~ Man Replied 2 weeks ago

He John,
thanks for your feedback and trying GreenByGreen.
The 'issues' you mentioned are Ossn standard: The Profile Photos and Cover Photos folders are special - they have no own upload option. These pictures have to be loaded directly from the member's profile page. Instructions are available on

In order to achieve a complete mobile workflow, please follow these steps:

  1. From your Ossn admin backend change back to Goblue temporarely
  2. Delete GreenByGreen 1.27
  3. Install and enable the TouchScreen CoverImage Dragging component from the link I mentioned above
  4. Install and enable GreenByGreen 1.28
  5. Visit your profile page and give it a try

Theme looks awesome, chat works on Android without issue.
The cover photo album doesn't seem to be writable, and I can't find the folder to check.
Example: created new folder and buttons appear to add photos to album.
Profile cover album has no way to add photos.
Also, I do not see a way to assign cover photo.
Am I missing something??

Hi James,
I hope you will understand that my motivation giving detailed help on how to change my theme is a little limited.
Hence, I would recommend to read the advices in
inspect the section of interest, find the element and change it.

gb JAMES PACKER Replied 2 months ago

i do like the theme, but im changing some colurs in the theme, as i prefer a darker color set, but i cant seem to find the background for the page side bar for the groups pages. i am looking in the css of the theme, do i have to find it somewhere else?

Hey @~Z~Man - I cant use your theme because the component "Anonymous Registration" is not working. It does work fine when I switch to another theme. Any idea what might be wrong?
