We’ve been working with the ThemeHybrid and Hybrid-News themes, have much of the design work done, are good with CSS, and have implemented plugins for many of our needs. Now we’re looking to accelerate the timetable by adding someone with WP/ThemeHybrid expertise to create the following templates for a child theme:</p> <ul> <li>Home page with four featured stories with art, accordion-powered sidebar sections listing posts from specific categories (with thumbnails), tabbed sections below featured content with RSS feed listings and a customized tag cloud</li> <li>Single post with accordion-powered sidebar</li> <li>Single post without sidebar</li> <li>Category archive page with a single featured story (with art), chronological listing of posts, accordion-powered sidebar</li> <li>Generic page templates with and without sidebar</li> <li>Custom header (2 variants) for the site</li> </ul> <p>We’re looking for a coder/developer rather than a designer -- our staff will create whatever graphic images are needed for the project, and we can handle fine-tuning CSS files for the site. We also prefer to use existing, reputable plugins and widgets where that makes sense, rather than building everything from scratch.</p> <p>Accessibility is an important requirement for the finished product. We plan to code in HTML5/CSS3 to the extent possible and sensible, with graceful degradation for older browsers.</p> <p>To give you an idea of where we’re headed, a nonfunctional graphic version of the (not yet final) home page design is available at <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p> <p>Please reply to <a href=""></a> with your experience, availability and rates.</p> <p>~ Steve McConnell<br /> Web managing editor, UC Berkeley </p> Kyle D on "GreenJam - a Green News Aggregator built with Hybrid" Mon, 22 Feb 2010 22:20:49 +0000 Kyle D 2686@ <p>I think I might be inclined to set the li's to the same height (high enough to accommodate two lines of text) - just so it is more consistent looking.</p> <p>Otherwise I think it looks nice. Some of the tag's rounded areas get cut off for some reason. </p> notomato on "GreenJam - a Green News Aggregator built with Hybrid" Mon, 22 Feb 2010 14:47:34 +0000 notomato 2683@ <p>I'm just putting the finishing touches on <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a> - it has been build with Hybrid using the skeleton theme as a starting point.</p> <p>There are a few interesting things going on, as posts come in from various feeds they get sent to OpenCalais where they get tagged by who or what is talked about. I then put the tags into about 12 custom taxonomies (people, places etc) and the posts can all be browsed by these tags.</p> <p>I'd be interested on peoples views about the site and how it works. There is more functionality to come, particularly with stats and views of what topics are popular.</p> <p>Cheers,</p> <p>Chris. </p> Kyle D on "vtdigger" Fri, 11 Dec 2009 18:09:16 +0000 Kyle D 2234@ <p>Looks nice. Just a note that the Search form needs some work. I'm having a bit of difficulty clicking on the actual search input field in Firefox and Chrome (on a Mac). Plus the word SEARCH in the search button is cut off. I'm guessing you want to remove that completely, but I'm not sure. </p> Josh Larkin on "vtdigger" Fri, 11 Dec 2009 04:18:51 +0000 Josh Larkin 2232@ <p>sorry, hasty in my posting...just added it </p> Justin Tadlock on "vtdigger" Fri, 11 Dec 2009 04:08:16 +0000 Justin Tadlock 2231@ <p>What's the site? </p> Josh Larkin on "vtdigger" Fri, 11 Dec 2009 03:50:27 +0000 Josh Larkin 2230@ <p><a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p> <p>Built this site on Skeleton.

Of course you need a browser that supports these CSS3 effects like: rounded corners, alpha transparency and text shadows.</p> <p>You can see it in action at <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p> <p>A few things:</p> <p>&gt;&gt; It supports a full page, resizable background image, using Chris Coyier's method from CSS tricks (<a href="" rel="nofollow"></a>. This is achieved using the Hyrbid Hook plugin, and placing the code to your background image in the "Before HTML" section of the Container Action Hooks.<br /> - i.e. <code>&lt;img class=&quot;bg&quot; src=&quot;; /&gt;</code></p> <p>&gt;&gt; Because its based on the Hybrid News theme it has a custom front page, to utilize this feature, create a page and select the "Front Page" template, leave it blank. Then go into the "Reading" section of your WP settings, and select "Front page displays a static page", then choose the page you created. </p> <p>&gt;&gt; The Twitter status is achieved using the Twitter for Wordpress plugin, and rather than hardcoding it in, or widgetizing it, I again used the Hybrid Hook plugin, and placed the code in the "Before Primary" section of the Widget Area Action Hooks like this:<br /> <pre><code>&lt;div class=&quot;twitter widget&quot;&gt; &lt;div class=&quot;twitter-top&quot;&gt; &lt;h6 class=&quot;follow&quot;&gt;Follow &lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;white&quot;&gt;username&lt;/a&gt; on twitter&lt;/h6&gt; &lt;/div&gt; &lt;?php if(function_exists(&#39;twitter_messages&#39;)) { twitter_messages(&#39;username&#39;, 1, false, true, true, true, true, false); } ?&gt; &lt;/div&gt;</code></pre> <p>The theme is 100% GPL licensed and you can download it here:<br /> Windows 7 Fanboy Wordpress theme - <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p> <p>If you have any questions about it, or just want to thank me, feel free to leave a comment on my site at <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p> <p>Hope you enjoy the theme!

Turns out I'm having too much fun with it to stop.</p> <p>Hybrid News style - The site has no particular point, just anything and all we can think of putting online.</p> <p>Your themes rock btw, thanks for all of this! I love this theme. Makes me feel like I've got a blog/static site all in one which was what I was looking for. </p> edkilby on "FruitychickenHybridNews" Thu, 16 Jul 2009 03:49:28 +0000 edkilby 1568@ <p>BTW, you misspelled "recipes" in your menu. </p> Sorius on "FruitychickenHybridNews" Tue, 30 Jun 2009 11:12:11 +0000 Sorius 1484@ <p>I totaly agree. im going with the news demo. and just saving the header. Please stay posted :) </p> ToddMorris on "FruitychickenHybridNews" Tue, 30 Jun 2009 02:01:09 +0000 ToddMorris 1480@ <p>hmmm ... </p> <p>I think your content is interesting.</p> <p>But in all honesty, I can't help but feel that the good content is being overshadowed by the "design" changes that you've chosen to make.</p> <p>Why not just use one of Justin's themes "straight out of the box"? </p> <p>... practice CSS on a test site that's not intended for public viewing. When you get to the point that your design skills match your writing skills, Then will be a good time to customize your theme. </p> <p>I hope you take this as the constructive criticism that it's meant to be. </p> <p>Todd </p> Sorius on "FruitychickenHybridNews" Mon, 29 Jun 2009 23:29:20 +0000 Sorius 1478@ <p><a href="" rel="nofollow"></a> what do you guys think? </p> Justin Tadlock on "Jorja Fox: Online on Hybrid News" Sat, 28 Feb 2009 21:38:58 +0000 Justin Tadlock 896@ <p>@hafid<br /> Please ask any questions on the support forums:<br /> <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a> </p> hafid on "Jorja Fox: Online on Hybrid News" Sat, 28 Feb 2009 17:41:18 +0000 hafid 894@ <p>hi all, I installed the theme just now, but the default home page is a simple template, nothing on it. I don't know how to choice the "front page" as home page. But if I add a new page such as news, I can choice front page template. Who can help me? </p> Ipstenu on "Jorja Fox: Online on Hybrid News" Thu, 12 Feb 2009 14:51:31 +0000 Ipstenu 831@ <p>Oh, duh, mix-width will work on 'modern' broswers, and the un-modern are scaled to a smaller, fixed width anyway!</p> <p>Thank you, PegasusTeam for making my brain work! </p> Ipstenu on "Jorja Fox: Online on Hybrid News" Wed, 11 Feb 2009 23:55:14 +0000 Ipstenu 826@ <p>Oh it's the ads causing the screen to go a bit weird.</p> <p>75% of visitors are using 1152x864 or higher.</p> <p>But yeah, I'm trying to fix that ad stuff a little better. :/ It annoys me and is my current 'arrrr' ;) </p> PegasusTeam on "Jorja Fox: Online on Hybrid News" Wed, 11 Feb 2009 19:43:03 +0000 PegasusTeam 823@ <p>With screen resolution set to 1024 x 768 all of your 728x90 ads are running off under the right widget areas. Also the text on the video gallery page is partially hidden under the widget area (eg: "sidebar"). The News scroller is also too wide and is partially hidden.<br /> Without looking at your code, It looks like you optimized your site widths for a wider screen res like 1280?<br /> Or your ads are just too wide for your content width, not surewhat happened with the scroller.<br /> On all my sites 1024 x 768 is the most popular screen size by a big margin. Check your Analytics too see what screen res the majority of your visitors are using.</p> <p>Other than that good job I like it. </p> Ipstenu on "Jorja Fox: Online on Hybrid News" Tue, 10 Feb 2009 18:48:21 +0000 Ipstenu 815@ <p>75% of the decisions into layout are due to web trends and three years of analyzing the site. The other 25% is what I think looks 'good' ;) I currently use SiteMeter, Google Analytics AND Woopra, but I'm probably going to drop SiteMeter for lack of useful data.</p> <p>The logo being big is because recognition degrades the smaller a face is, mostly. 150px is about as small as it 'works'. I used to have a 100px image and people kept asking what the image was. For a 'professional' site, I'd do something small, but as a fansite, 'big' headers are 'better' - according to polls and trends. I bow to traffic results.</p> <p>The lack of categories was born from organization. Basically you get 4 cats: Jorja Fox, Site News, Community Stuff and Featured. As far as searching on that, having the category was pretty useless for the every day viewer. Now, the tags got a lot more traffic so that was easy to decide. Obviously it's gonna be different for everyone! :)</p> <p>I'm still experimenting with ad placement. The 728wides as a banner ad get more bank for your buck, but they do mean the browser has to be 'wider.' I hand smacked IE 5 and 6 to go with the smaller ads and a fixed width, since they basically suck, but a stupidly high number of my visitors use it (60% of visitors use IE and of that 23% of the 60% use IE 6 and .2% use IE 5). So really not a lot at 14% of all users, but enough that I don't want to tell them to FOAD. The site does look best in FF or IE 7/8 or Safari or pretty much any 'modern' browser. Thanks to BroswerShots, I was able to see how it'd look on different OSs. It is, honestly, the most work I've done on a website for design since ... 2005? It's the most complicated one.</p> <p>But honestly it was faster to mock this up in Hybrid News than it was to mock it up in Structure (which I'd been doing before news came out). Obviously I customized the heck out of this. I changed fonts, moved layout and such, so really you can tweak this to your own needs :)</p> <p>Now I'm agonizing over widgets vs manual changes. Probably go to wigets. </p> JoSe on "Jorja Fox: Online on Hybrid News" Tue, 10 Feb 2009 17:22:15 +0000 JoSe 814@ <p>Well, after a thorough inspection of your website, I realize all the tweaks you did and I like:<br /> 1) Changed the default tipography (is it Arial now ?)<br /> 2) Moved pages to the right on the home page (sites logo too big, but JF is so pretty anyways !)<br /> 3) Erased the default search box and the links to categories<br /> 4) Added the "subscribe to" links to the right of your logo</p> <p>I would like to move my website from Structure to Hybrid news, but these points defer me from doing it. </p> Ipstenu on "Jorja Fox: Online on Hybrid News" Tue, 10 Feb 2009 15:09:32 +0000 Ipstenu 813@ <p>The gallery will be 'matched' eventually. Gallery's changing their code and since I have to re-do everything for that anyway... right ;)</p> <p>As for Google - You mean to put it in it's own page? I did this: <a href="">Google AdSense Search Results within WordPress Pages</a></p> <p>Then I replaced the search widget with a text widget with the google search 'code' and that was that :) </p> JoSe on "Jorja Fox: Online on Hybrid News" Tue, 10 Feb 2009 13:06:06 +0000 JoSe 811@ <p>Hey, wondeful site, especially the forums and the wiki.</p> <p>Very nice job, I would like to know how you tweaked the G custom search ! </p> Ipstenu on "Jorja Fox: Online on Hybrid News" Sun, 08 Feb 2009 19:19:11 +0000 Ipstenu 799@ <p>After years of my own themes, I finally accepted that I couldn't hand code everything I wanted and Justin can.</p> <p>Using Hybrid News, I've re-done a few of the pages myself, where I couldn't just tweak settings, played with the colors and came out with something that feels like my old site, but looks new.</p> <p><a href="">Jorja Fox: Online</a> </p>
