In 2007 I switched just the blog over to WordPress. Finally in 2011 I switched the whole site to WordPress and am using the Hybird theme as a parent theme and a custom version of Skeleton as base for the child theme. </p> <p>Currently the site is in Christmas mode with snow and lights. Hint: for added fun click on the string of lights. </p> Mariken on "Fullinsight.com .... a forecast, fashion, trend blog made on Prototype" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/fullinsightcom-a-forecast-fashion-trend-blog-made-on-prototype#post-3664 Mon, 08 Aug 2011 08:58:43 +0000 Mariken 3664@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p><code><a href="http://www.fullinsight.com" rel="nofollow">http://www.fullinsight.com</a></code><br /> Proud to share and thanks to the great work of Matt and Justin.

I didn't even notice the menu, but it and the kerning is all due to the FLIR.

Also, wondering why the tags section in the footer was centered and the others flush left?<br /> Also, the kerning is a bit off in some headings, I suppose because of FLIR </p> Kirk T on "LiveTardy.com - Personal Blog" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/livetardycom-personal-blog#post-2606 Tue, 09 Feb 2010 17:42:59 +0000 Kirk T 2606@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p><a href="http://livetardy.com/" rel="nofollow">http://livetardy.com/</a></p> <p>Moved my site from the Sandbox theme to Hybrid, and will never look back.</p> <p>Design relies heavily on the following plugins.</p> <ul> <li>FLIR for WordPress</li> <li>Query Posts</li> <li>Widget Logic</li> </ul> <p>The move to Hybrid has forced me to learn more than just CSS, and it's been great.

I've seen your sites before and am waiting for seo part 2!</p> <p>whobody </p> thinkjayant on "Presentation: Typical Blog or Original HTML" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/presentation-typical-blog-or-original-html#post-330 Tue, 02 Dec 2008 02:12:59 +0000 thinkjayant 330@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>Great design and killer content are the two most important things for a blog's success. With respect to design, I would agree with justin that usability comes before form.</p> <p>That said i have seen some minimal blog design which have blown me away. No seriously, they were so nicely done keeping in mind the aesthetic and content flow in mind.</p> <p>Getting away from traditional boxes (as you put it) is good. It quickly gives your blog a diferent identity, but them in some cases you would not want to do that. For example, in my personal blog at <a href="http://www.thinkjayant.com" rel="nofollow">http://www.thinkjayant.com</a> i wanted a very minimalistic design, hence i did not used boxes. But that was not the case with <a href="http://www.smartblogtips.com" rel="nofollow">http://www.smartblogtips.com</a> as the audience is different.</p> <p>CSS is very easy to learn. but what you do with those boxes, make them into crappy circles or turn them into cool shapes depends on the designer. But at the end it should compliment the design well.</p> <p>Regards<br /> Thinkjayant </p> whobody on "Presentation: Typical Blog or Original HTML" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/presentation-typical-blog-or-original-html#post-328 Sun, 30 Nov 2008 22:01:05 +0000 whobody 328@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>the-elder - "Identity" Great word to describe what I'm talking about. I've somewhat studied online magazines (people, vogue, etc.) and they look identical, just like you said. I think they are so mathematical in their presentation, it's not fresh. That's cool on the DJing. My life has revolved around it for many years and is finally changing.</p> <p>Justin - Fresh content, function over form. "Field" determines %s. Following that, I would say that the greatest sites do both. Constant, quality content in a medium that presents well to that market. Thanks for the road map.</p> <p>All - I would love to see some examples of sites (WP or non-WP) to model after. What are some of the best sites out there as you see it?</p> <p>Thanks. </p> Justin Tadlock on "Presentation: Typical Blog or Original HTML" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/presentation-typical-blog-or-original-html#post-318 Sun, 30 Nov 2008 00:16:48 +0000 Justin Tadlock 318@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>What it all comes down to &mdash; this coming from a theme designer &mdash; is content. Sure, a great, original look will do wonders for your site, but it'll only get you so far. Fresh, original content is what most folks will come back for.</p> <p>Personally, I tend to favor functionality over form. However, what field you're in should determine how <em>out there</em> you get with design. </p> Reinar Svendsen on "Presentation: Typical Blog or Original HTML" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/presentation-typical-blog-or-original-html#post-312 Fri, 28 Nov 2008 11:36:15 +0000 Reinar Svendsen 312@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>In my opinion you certainly have a point. To me it's about looking at websites of similar genre as your own - only to find out that, that's what works :-) Being a little harsh maybe, only very few websites or blogs have an actual "Identity".</p> <p>Look at any magazine available or news paper for that matter. To me, they all look alike - but it's what works - I guess. I used to Dj myself 85-98 and "ended up" the same like you ;-)</p> <p>I guess it's about taking a jump - turning things upside down. </p> whobody on "Presentation: Typical Blog or Original HTML" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/presentation-typical-blog-or-original-html#post-311 Thu, 27 Nov 2008 23:40:19 +0000 whobody 311@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>In viewing all of the personal sites that use Justins's themes, I see two basic presentations: Those that are pretty straight forward and look like a "blog" (read: boxes), and those that look like a magazine, or scrapbook page (original and fresh).</p> <p>A short story: As a DJ, I have studied every possible option for a DJ booth. Everything. I've taken all of my years of learning and playing and finally built my own booth. In the end, I dumped it and bought the same thing everybody else is using because, frankly, it works better.</p> <p>Here at JustinWorld, there are some basic, boxy sites put together by very qualified designers. In my 'blog' immaturity, I wonder if there is a secret, like that people really just want what works (boring/boxy) instead of seeing what I consider to be fresh and original.</p> <p>Thoughts?</p> <p>Thanks,<br /> whobody </p>
