I've been looking for a solid responsive magazine theme to switch to. Overall it's brilliant! One thing I'd like to see different though is at least a subtle line between post teasers/excerpts on the front page and on category pages. Without something like a line inbetween each excerpt it all blends together and is hard to tell what words go with what picture.</p> <p>You are truly doing awesome work my friend. I hope Justin promotes your work. </p> Galin on "Oxygen: new magazine theme" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/oxygen-new-magazine-theme#post-4891 Mon, 06 Feb 2012 20:50:41 +0000 Galin 4891@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>Thanks, Sami. Just noticed some images in the widget areas don't behave 'responsively' enough.</p> <p>Another font that looks great on this particular theme is 'Terminal Dosis'. It's available as an option in the theme settings. </p> Sami Keijonen on "Oxygen: new magazine theme" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/oxygen-new-magazine-theme#post-4890 Mon, 06 Feb 2012 20:19:23 +0000 Sami Keijonen 4890@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>I Like this one too. Especially 'Abel' font. I've been thinking using it myself. I'll do the browsers test for this one too. </p> Galin on "Oxygen: new magazine theme" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/oxygen-new-magazine-theme#post-4889 Mon, 06 Feb 2012 16:03:53 +0000 Galin 4889@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>I made another Hybrid Core parent theme - a light magazine theme with slider, 3-column layout, 5 sidebars, 3 menus, theme settings, and all kinds of additional goodies the framework offers. It's responsive as well.</p> <ul> <li><a href="http://demo.alienwp.com/oxygen/" title="Oxygen Theme Demo">Demo</a></li> <li><a href="http://alienwp.com/wp-content/uploads/themes/oxygen.zip" title="Download the Oxygen theme">Download (~360 KB)</a></li> </ul> <p>Instead of relying on the 'standard' magazine theme options (category selectors for the home page), I kind of utilized Justin's ideas from this post - <a href="http://justintadlock.com/archives/2011/01/14/rethinking-how-news-themes-work">How news themes work</a>.</p> <p>So I hope you like it. Feedback is really appreciated - it's not the simplest theme so there might be a few (or more) bugs that need busting...</p> <p>PS: If you decide to use it, make sure to separate all modifications in a child theme - I update regularly and you may loose some important changes. </p> Galin on "Origin: Responsive parent theme" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/origin-responsive-parent-theme/page/2#post-4882 Fri, 03 Feb 2012 19:01:02 +0000 Galin 4882@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>No worries :) .

So nothing to worrie about. My only concern was that in certain desktop monitor resolution fluid grid gets broken in IE7. But I'll have to double check will this happen for example 800 x 600 resolution. That could be resolution when presenting stuff to audience via projector.</p> <p>Sorry if I was misleading you. </p> Galin on "Origin: Responsive parent theme" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/origin-responsive-parent-theme/page/2#post-4880 Fri, 03 Feb 2012 15:19:56 +0000 Galin 4880@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>Hi Sammy, I believe IE7 is not used in the current Microsoft mobile OS (Windows Phone), so I don't see why we should bother. </p> <p>There is no Windows Phone around I could test with, but according to <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Explorer_Mobile">Wikipedia for example, IE Mobile is based on IE9</a> so I assume we are OK.</p> <p>But I might be missing something?</p> <p>EDIT: I test older IE's with <a href="http://www.my-debugbar.com/wiki/IETester/HomePage">IE Tester</a>. The theme looks almost perfect - the layout isn't broken or something. Maybe you see something I don't? Of course I'm not resizing the browser because I don't see the point. </p> Sami Keijonen on "Origin: Responsive parent theme" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/origin-responsive-parent-theme#post-4879 Fri, 03 Feb 2012 09:55:39 +0000 Sami Keijonen 4879@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>Hi Galin. I have tested "fluid" grids with IE7 and under some circumstances there is not one grid that works with IE7. That includes your site or <a href="http://cssgrid.net/" rel="nofollow">http://cssgrid.net/</a> or any attemps I have made. I thought this was about problems that browsers can't calculte subpixels right. </p> <p><a href="http://ejohn.org/blog/sub-pixel-problems-in-css/" rel="nofollow">http://ejohn.org/blog/sub-pixel-problems-in-css/</a><br /> <a href="http://css-tricks.com/percentage-bugs-in-webkit/" rel="nofollow">http://css-tricks.com/percentage-bugs-in-webkit/</a></p> <p>But I even made grid with only integers % and I discovered almoust the same problems with IE7. How is it possible that IE7 can't calculate integers right:)</p> <p>I could write some more detail in better time. And those problems are pretty minor, so don't worry. One way to go is just leave old IE behind. I'll take that advice for<br /> some project.</p> <p><a href="http://jonikorpi.com/leaving-old-IE-behind/" rel="nofollow">http://jonikorpi.com/leaving-old-IE-behind/</a> </p> Justin Tadlock on "Origin: Responsive parent theme" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/origin-responsive-parent-theme#post-4869 Thu, 02 Feb 2012 18:07:46 +0000 Justin Tadlock 4869@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>Cool. I'll let you know more when the time comes. </p> Galin on "Origin: Responsive parent theme" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/origin-responsive-parent-theme#post-4862 Tue, 31 Jan 2012 18:19:00 +0000 Galin 4862@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>@Justin: Yes, I'm interested. </p> Justin Tadlock on "Origin: Responsive parent theme" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/origin-responsive-parent-theme#post-4860 Tue, 31 Jan 2012 16:52:59 +0000 Justin Tadlock 4860@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>@Galin</p> <p>I don't want to get too into the details yet, but the new ThemeHybrid.com site will allow theme authors to post their custom themes here on the site (on the actual themes page here). If you're interested, let me know. </p> Galin on "Origin: Responsive parent theme" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/origin-responsive-parent-theme#post-4853 Fri, 27 Jan 2012 16:19:02 +0000 Galin 4853@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>Thanks :) . The site has some unfinished parts and I want to have at least three decent themes to offer before considering it ready for human eyes. And I can't declare any business model yet but I'll probably put prices on some of the future themes. The project has a secondary (and even tertiary) role as well. So its future doesn't exactly depend on the eventual profitability of the model. </p> wiselywoven on "Origin: Responsive parent theme" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/origin-responsive-parent-theme#post-4852 Fri, 27 Jan 2012 14:06:58 +0000 wiselywoven 4852@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>Justin: I hear what you are saying. I guess we're in a strange phase of web development - almost a transitional phase before everything jives how it should. In the meantime though there are people accessing our websites on ipads and smart phones and other devices and it's only increasing. Also isn't the future of standards-based code going to be HTML5 and CSS3 - and doesn't this lead towards a more consistent experience across all devices? I'm no expert in any of this but I am trying to understand how to go forward and ride the edge without leaving late adopters behind. It's the strange tension between what is coming and what is.</p> <p>Galin: You are doing great work and I appreciate that you are using the Hybrid Core as a solid base. When do you plan to launch your website officially and what is your business model? Will you have a handful of free themes and then sell some premium ones or is this just a side project that will be for the free benefit of the Wordpress community? Thanks for the comments on the slider as well. </p> Galin on "Origin: Responsive parent theme" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/origin-responsive-parent-theme#post-4851 Fri, 27 Jan 2012 09:18:45 +0000 Galin 4851@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>@wiselywoven: There must be 101 ways to implement a slider. The easiest approach that comes to my mind at the moment is to simply use the Slideshow plugin in the sticky post. The sticky post can be modified to display the entire content.</p> <p>Or take a look at the News theme for an example. </p> <p>Yesterday I started a new theme and there will be a slider in it. Will share it here when it's done. </p> Justin Tadlock on "Origin: Responsive parent theme" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/origin-responsive-parent-theme#post-4850 Fri, 27 Jan 2012 06:17:15 +0000 Justin Tadlock 4850@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>The My Life theme was originally responsive. I didn't like how it turned out, so I removed the code for it. </p> <p>Responsive design is something I'm playing around with, but it's not at the top of the priority list right now. It didn't seem to be a high priority for people who took the Theme Hybrid 2012 poll.</p> <p>Honestly, I'm still questioning the entire responsiveness movement. I like what can be done, but it's steering Web design in the wrong direction. What I mean by this is that the device should know what to do with standards-based code. The code shouldn't be catering to the device. That's kind of backwards.</p> <p>Those are my thoughts. Responsive designs are definitely on my radar. </p> wiselywoven on "Origin: Responsive parent theme" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/origin-responsive-parent-theme#post-4849 Fri, 27 Jan 2012 01:45:55 +0000 wiselywoven 4849@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>Galin: How hard would it be to add a slider to the homepage?</p> <p>Justin: do you plan on getting into responsive design? - aka: designing so that your themes look good on any device (smart phone, tablet, etc)? Or is this already a feature of your work somewhat? Going forward I am looking to implement responsive themes and I would love to stay with your work as a solid base. </p> Galin on "Origin: Responsive parent theme" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/origin-responsive-parent-theme#post-4848 Thu, 26 Jan 2012 18:25:40 +0000 Galin 4848@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>I've submitted the theme to wordpress.org more than 2 weeks ago. Hopefully it would get approved at some point and you'd start receiving automatic update notifications. </p> <p>Whenever I update the theme I also update the contents of the file in the first post (the file name doesn't indicate the theme version anymore).</p> <p>You can check what the most current version is on the 'official' theme page (the url is in the ReadMe file) or by inspecting the source of the demo site - the following meta tag indicates the version:</p> <pre><code>&lt;meta name=&quot;template&quot; content=&quot;Origin 0.2.1&quot; /&gt;</code></pre> gloriaantonelli on "Origin: Responsive parent theme" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/origin-responsive-parent-theme#post-4847 Thu, 26 Jan 2012 16:29:49 +0000 gloriaantonelli 4847@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>Thanks Galin. I did a search on the support forum and found a few threads already there about adding a second menu that did the trick.<br /> If I have any other questions I will be sure to use the support forum.</p> <p>Nice theme!

It would cover everything you need to know and the topic might be useful for more members, not only those who use Origin. </p> gloriaantonelli on "Origin: Responsive parent theme" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/origin-responsive-parent-theme#post-4837 Thu, 26 Jan 2012 01:27:45 +0000 gloriaantonelli 4837@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>I am trying out the Origin theme.
