I sure Hope I was not ripped off? it was $50 </p> Brian Krogsgard on "Small shop with WooCommerce and Hybrid Core" Tue, 08 Nov 2011 04:53:57 +0000 Brian Krogsgard 3765@ <p>@Justin - My pleasure. I hope to go into more detail with using WooCommerce soon on my blog or elsewhere.</p> <p>My implementation here is pretty much the out-of-the-box version, except integrated with Hybrid Core. There's a lot of potential to do cool things though, and I'm looking forward to exploring them.</p> <p>One example of what I want to do is create attributes to do more than just select slight variations, but to create a retail and wholesale view of a site with different pricing based on logged in user roles. That would really help with my company, and it's on my short list. </p> Justin Tadlock on "Small shop with WooCommerce and Hybrid Core" Tue, 08 Nov 2011 04:00:37 +0000 Justin Tadlock 3764@ <p>Brian, thanks for writing this out. It's always nice to read someone's opinion you can trust on these things. </p> iamcanadian1973 on "Small shop with WooCommerce and Hybrid Core" Mon, 07 Nov 2011 23:58:09 +0000 iamcanadian1973 3763@ <p>Brian,</p> <p>that is the plan, to buy somehting similar and make my own. :P</p> <p>It's usually the best way to go.</p> <p>Thanks for your input, always very helpful. </p> Brian Krogsgard on "Small shop with WooCommerce and Hybrid Core" Mon, 07 Nov 2011 22:32:12 +0000 Brian Krogsgard 3762@ <p>@Craig - Thanks : ) I think you give me too much credit. I too ended up not using Cart66 from Patrick's warning.</p> <p>@iamcanadian1973 - Woo does have lots of addons and you can write your own. I bet if you bought a similar addon to your own you could figure out how to write the one you want, assuming the corresponding api is friendly. </p> iamcanadian1973 on "Small shop with WooCommerce and Hybrid Core" Mon, 07 Nov 2011 22:03:50 +0000 iamcanadian1973 3761@ <p>Brian,</p> <p>I usually use Cart66, and I like its flexability, there are some ecommerce websites I've built that needed the seperation that Cart66 offers or else it would not have been possible. </p> <p>But it lacks in hooks, so you can't go creating your own shipping module or payment gateway unless you want to edit their code. And for me that is a huge downfall to Cart66 when creating ecommerce solutions. </p> <p>Many clients have requested Canada Post for dynamic shipping calculations, but Cart66 limits you to what they have.</p> <p>So with Woocommerce, they have available addons, I'm guessing this means the ability to write our own gatways, shipping modules and anythign else we desire and have no issues including them? </p> Craig on "Small shop with WooCommerce and Hybrid Core" Mon, 07 Nov 2011 20:58:20 +0000 Craig 3760@ <p>Hey Brian,</p> <p>Great job and probably a one of a kind integration, very nicely done, I like more minimal layouts for shopping sites.</p> <p>Timing is everything I guess I have been looking at woo only because as usual in my experience any e-commerce site depends upon the clients needs for a payment gateway, shipping rules, tax, and a number of other complexities. I purchased Cart66 and gave it a go, luckily I read a post by Patrick over at DevPress which led me to back out quickly.</p> <p>I have never been convinced or been a huge fan of WordPress and e-commerce, it has come a long way, perhaps with Jigo doing a fairly nice integration.</p> <p>Hey great job and you always are doing great stuff for the community at large. </p> Nic on "Small shop with WooCommerce and Hybrid Core" Mon, 07 Nov 2011 16:48:50 +0000 Nic 3759@ <p>Thanks for the write up! It is always good to hear first hand experience from other people on subjects like this. </p> <p>I will only add that if you are outside major markets like USA, UK and Europe look carefully at your e-commerce solution's gateway support. I figured I would use PayPal, but since our local PayPal does not run in our local currency, I ran into problems with price conversions. Ultimately it was the payment gateway support, and some really obtuse language from PayPal that caused problems. </p> <p>Do your homework beforehand, and make 100% sure that if PayPal is in your country, that it supports your local currency. If not, make sure there is already existing (or you can code your own) local gateway support. </p> Brian Krogsgard on "Small shop with WooCommerce and Hybrid Core" Mon, 07 Nov 2011 15:38:34 +0000 Brian Krogsgard 3758@ <p>@dronix Thanks! This is actually my first time in freelance to do so as well. Since I started this one I've worked on a bunch with my day job, which is how I have familiarity with Shopp. This site went from Cart66 &gt; Jigoshop &gt; WooCommerce so I'm glad to have it off my plate. And if you're doing this in the future, add a solid 20 hours for e-commerce... minimum. </p> dronix on "Small shop with WooCommerce and Hybrid Core" Mon, 07 Nov 2011 15:25:44 +0000 dronix 3757@ <p>Hey Brian. </p> <p>I like the site. The design is pretty nice and the layout is well structured.</p> <p>I've never built an e-commerce site so I apologize for my short feedback. </p> Brian Krogsgard on "Small shop with WooCommerce and Hybrid Core" Mon, 07 Nov 2011 14:58:23 +0000 Brian Krogsgard 3756@ <p>I launched a small <a href="">e-commerce site</a> that integrates Hybrid Core and WooCommerce. I was responsible for design and development. I'm not much of a designer, much less for feminine sites, so don't judge me too much : )</p> <p>The development was interesting. <a href="">You can read</a> why I used Woo instead of Jigoshop (the e-commerce plugin it was forked from) in another thread, but I'll speak of the development of a WooCommerce theme, as it's most applicable, though they're both very similar.</p> <p>There are hooks everywhere in WooCommerce. You can filter and add functions to your hearts content. The code was well organized and fairly easy to find. There's a templates folder, but more importantly there's an actions and functions folder. This makes WooCommerce quite customizable, and easy to enable / disable / change things from a single theme setup function.</p> <p>You can also completely override templates in a custom 'woocommerce' folder in your theme directory. You can override quite a few templates this way. Just be careful you don't override a hook that has an important function connected to it and not program it back into your template.</p> <p>The only other issues were deregistering and registering the shop wrappers to work with my theme, which is well documented how to do. Finally, I really don't understand why the plugins even have a call to get a sidebar. They shouldn't do that at all in my opinion, so I took it out. </p> <p>CSS can be done a few ways. You can override styles in your theme directory, but you may get stuck having to use !important a few times that way. It's best if you're doing a parent theme to just not use WooCommerce CSS, copy their css file, and include it in your theme to edit that way.</p> <p>Variable products in WooCommerce are awesome. Granted, this site has waaay to many variations per product, but the way it handles them is much better than Shopp (the other e-commerce plugin I have familiarity with variations). Most of what I mean by this is the ability to use *any* x *any* variations so that if you have 3 colors and 5 sizes you don't have to configure 15 variations. </p> <p>I'm sure this site still has bugs, and the owner wants to spice some areas up a bit, but all in all it was pretty smooth. I hope this may help some of you. </p> fb on "CafeAalto Core" Mon, 10 Oct 2011 06:31:06 +0000 fb 3728@ <p>Thank you </p> damondb on "CafeAalto Core" Sun, 09 Oct 2011 18:30:23 +0000 damondb 3727@ <p>Really Nice, fb! I'm considering using a picture instead of plain background or texture is a great ide as well and I would change the picture once a week. Again, great work! </p> fb on "CafeAalto Core" Fri, 07 Oct 2011 20:29:35 +0000 fb 3724@ <p>A theme for a designer Cafe built on Core....</p> <p>Once again, Justin Chapeau!!!! What a great thing you have done..... Keep up the great work and I kind of proise not to keep on asking you to help me with hardcore loops... :)</p> <p>Ok link <a href="">here</a></p> <p>Let me know what you think.... </p> Robert on " - Listener Magazine - Hybrid Core" Wed, 27 Jul 2011 00:03:13 +0000 Robert 3650@ <p>Hey @dhavaljani and @Jan Egbert just saw your posts here.</p> <p>Thanks for the feedback.</p> <p>The client has a competent tech team and is maintaining the site themselves now. They would have done more performance tuning etc to speed the site up.</p> <p>Comments are just native WP comments.</p> <p>They didn't really want to be able to click on an issue and get all the issue articles (even though you can do it manually (for example: <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a> since they had specific requirements for displaying issues which ended up outside of the scope of the project.</p> <p>Current issue is just a category to post the current issue, which is CSS styled specifically, the other issues are just posts in the category.</p> <p>Yeah, the theme source is 82 files excluding images and the hybrid core files so a bit tricky to put on display. The theme consist of a few custom front end and admin plugins, helpers, js files and WP template files. We also used WPAlchemy's Metabox helper class for the custom post metaboxes. </p> Michael Wender on "Daily Photos Blog - A Photoblog Built with Hybrid Core" Wed, 13 Jul 2011 16:19:07 +0000 Michael Wender 3625@ <p>Using the Hybrid Core, I've built my first commercial WordPress Theme, called <em>Pictography</em>. See a live demo here: <a href=""></a>.</p> <p>The theme features a home page <em>Image Carousel</em> which displays any and all featured images from your posts. </p> <p>In addition, I've added code to the theme which lets users post "featured images" from WordPress for iOS or WordPress for Android (<em>currently a limitation in the WordPress XML-RPC prevents the apps from doing this themselves</em>).</p> <p>For more info on the theme, including a 60sec trailer, you can see the theme's info page here: <a href=""></a> </p> Jan Egbert on " - Listener Magazine - Hybrid Core" Tue, 21 Jun 2011 18:11:50 +0000 Jan Egbert 3600@ <p>Awesome job! I would love to have a look at the source of this theme. I love the preview functionality for print articles. I've always used a custom post type for issues and a taxonomy structure to link posts to issues. But I can see the advantages of using a taxonomy instead. I mean... articles are content and an issue is just that what keeps it together. </p> Jan Egbert on " - Hybrid Core" Tue, 21 Jun 2011 18:04:17 +0000 Jan Egbert 3599@ <p>This does look great! I've been away from Theme Hybrid for a while and I must say that the quality of themes showcased here has improved a lot. </p> @ommunist on " - Hybrid Core" Tue, 21 Jun 2011 17:12:47 +0000 @ommunist 3596@ <p>Looks great. Why did you put the tweet to the footer instead of the header? </p> dhavaljani on " - Listener Magazine - Hybrid Core" Thu, 16 Jun 2011 18:28:15 +0000 dhavaljani 3592@ <p>Site looks really good Robert and loads quite fast! Like the navigation as Brian said but also like homepage layout. What are you using for commenting? And how are you relating/showing Features under current-issue/ other issues?</p> <p>Great job!</p> <p>Dhaval </p> Justin Tadlock on "Idea for custom post's stylesheet feature" Tue, 03 May 2011 23:07:43 +0000 Justin Tadlock 3554@ <p>I've been thinking about this too. It's a much more user-friendly option. I just haven't gotten around to writing the functionality just yet. It's definitely on my list of things to do though. </p> Paulo Carvajal on "Idea for custom post's stylesheet feature" Tue, 03 May 2011 11:13:10 +0000 Paulo Carvajal 3548@ <p>Hi, I wonder if it could be a good idea to have a dropdown for this feature.<br /> If the CSS files must be in a CSS folder under the theme folder, it may be easy to check which files are there and put them in a combo making it easy for users to select one.</p> <p>Hope this make sense. </p> Robert on " - Listener Magazine - Hybrid Core" Tue, 26 Apr 2011 02:22:42 +0000 Robert 3534@ <p>Thanks Brian</p> <p>Most of the articles are entered by a dedicated content editor and not by the actual authors.</p> <p>As far as menu colors go, I wish the default WP menu system would output menu slugs instead of menu ID's as one of the class or ID parameters so styling would be easier when menu ID's change.</p> <p>The biggest issue is performance for logged in users as the full caching isn't enabled in that case. Our custom time wall query isn't the fasted kid on the block with some 1.5k articles. </p> Brian Krogsgard on " - Listener Magazine - Hybrid Core" Mon, 25 Apr 2011 14:02:41 +0000 Brian Krogsgard 3532@ <p>Hey Robert, just want to let you know I think you guys did an awesome job. </p> <p>I love the menus, and how the menu class colors match the article underline for each.</p> <p> Also, the columnist post type is pretty creative for a site that has lots of authors, or like you say, multi-author posts. </p> <p>Well done. </p> Robert on " - Listener Magazine - Hybrid Core" Tue, 05 Apr 2011 00:42:53 +0000 Robert 3495@ <p><a href="">The New Zealand Listener Magazine</a> is one of NZ's leading publications. Now with a new online presence.</p> <p>We redeveloped and redesigned the original site using WordPress and Hybrid Core.</p> <p>There are a few customizations here.</p> <p>We implemented a Columnist post type and Author taxonomy so we could assign multiple authors to an article as well as not have to link each columnist with a user account.</p> <p>Implemented a time wall which prevents the most recent issue articles from being displayed in full. This works in conjuction with a custom Issue taxonomy which has an Issue Date as an additional field (we used the Meta for Taxonomies plugin to help with that).</p> <p>Other custom stuff includes a nice post gallery, configurable home page and site options, custom registration fields, custom Omniture tracking, ads insertion. </p> onlyinmyhead on " - Hybrid Core" Sun, 20 Mar 2011 18:58:40 +0000 onlyinmyhead 3476@ <p>Love the tabs - nicely shaded. Great looking site. </p> Bryan Hoffman on "Rebuilt with Hybrid Core and HTML5" Sun, 20 Mar 2011 13:50:26 +0000 Bryan Hoffman 3475@ <p>Thanks for the kind words BrianK and, Robert for the constructive criticism. </p> <p>I agree with you on both accounts - The missing links were an oversight, and transitions on the badges weren't animating as intended. The tooltip idea would be a very nice touch, and I'll be implementing it soon. </p> Robert on "Rebuilt with Hybrid Core and HTML5" Sat, 19 Mar 2011 03:50:03 +0000 Robert 3473@ <p>Lovely site, Bryan. </p> <p>Slick, clean and professional. Nice attention to detail.</p> <p>Just a couple of things:<br /> 1. on the home page, the d,d,s,h icons are links that just link to the home page again. Also would be nice if they showed a tooltip saying what they mean. I know they represent the 4 main services but it's an easy thing to do and adds to usability.<br /> 2. the rollover on the main service badges bothers me a little just because it shrinks and the image becomes a blurry. Might be just me... </p> Robert on " - Hybrid Core" Sat, 19 Mar 2011 03:38:47 +0000 Robert 3472@ <p><a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p> <p>Previously the site was running a Hybrid child theme, now re-designed and developed using Hybrid Core and Protoype as the starter theme, which I then customized.</p> <p>Plugins used:</p> <p>Akismet<br /> Comment Notifier<br /> Google Analytics for WordPress by Yoast<br /> Google XML Sitemaps<br /> Relevanssi (enhanced search plugin)<br /> Styled Text Widget (my own to allow specifying a css class for the text widget container for individual styling)<br /> Syntaxhighlighter Evolved (for displaying code)<br /> W3 Total Cache<br /> WordPress Hashcash</p> <p>Implementation of the finished design took about 30 hours to complete. </p> Brian Krogsgard on "Rebuilt with Hybrid Core and HTML5" Thu, 17 Mar 2011 19:15:50 +0000 Brian Krogsgard 3469@ <p>That's beautiful.
