News or Magazines need these types of boxes for sharing, or editor contact. I'd love widgets that do more to polish the sophistication of a blog, "the team" or "Featured writer" someone that's actually written in the last month. Widget areas need to get smarter, footer/sidebar are great, but under content double side-by-side boxes would be cool related and comments with thumbnails. I don't think a designer has ever really asked someone like me who actually publishes a major magazine what actually needs to go into one. Hybrid News is a love hate relationship so long as I've had you to help me expand its edges. </p> David Clabaut on "WordPress widget ideas" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/wordpress-widget-ideas#post-3446 Thu, 24 Feb 2011 09:27:43 +0000 David Clabaut 3446@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>A News-ticker widget, based on taxonomy (custom taxonomy?) and/or category, flexible enough to be fully customized in the widget panel. </p> sailo on "3 center widgets in fronpage (Outline theme) help" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/3-center-widgets-in-fronpage-outline-theme-help#post-3219 Mon, 02 Aug 2010 02:57:29 +0000 sailo 3219@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>hello,<br /> i need 3 center widgets on my frontpage am not very good in css/php<br /> please guys i need example for which file i have to edit, i mean tell me exactly which file to edit<br /> like this:<br /> <a href="http://kuwaitana.net/widgets.jpg" rel="nofollow">http://kuwaitana.net/widgets.jpg</a></p> <p>is there any easy way to do that?</p> <p>thanks </p> SupplementUpdates on "WordPress widget ideas" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/wordpress-widget-ideas#post-3104 Sat, 05 Jun 2010 19:51:10 +0000 SupplementUpdates 3104@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>I'd love to see widgets that allow customization of front page layouts like for Hybrid News. </p> <p>1. I still love the tabbed category post previews with thumbnails that you did for the options theme. If you could make a plugin that did this, it would be killer.<br /> 2. A plugin to do the same as above, but for RSS feeds. I found a way of doing this, but the shortcodes for RSS with thumbnails require a ton of CSS to style. A simple plugin would make this easier.<br /> 3. I've seen websites that have cool horizontal thumbnail sliders with thumbnail/post title and I haven't been able to find one. There's tons of plugins for front page sliders, but this would be a nice way to display posts on the front page. The best way that I can describe what I'm talking about is the "media news" slider on this theme: <a href="http://www.gabfirethemes.com/demos/transcript/" rel="nofollow">http://www.gabfirethemes.com/demos/transcript/</a></p> <p>Yeah, I realize that my wish list of plugins are pretty complex and would be time consuming to make. </p> LuWeeks on "WordPress widget ideas" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/wordpress-widget-ideas#post-3103 Sat, 05 Jun 2010 12:50:52 +0000 LuWeeks 3103@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>1)<br /> Enhance Hybrid Tabs so that individual post categories can be chosen for tabs. Also ability to select a page for a tab, and the tab display the child page links.</p> <p>2)<br /> Wish there were an Events/Calendar widget that would show a list of event links in date order, such that it would show the next N events, dropping events after the day they occur.</p> <p>There would need to be a standard way of putting the date/time in the event link. Another alternative would be to have the events be pages, rather than links. </p> rasmusdotse on "WordPress widget ideas" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/wordpress-widget-ideas#post-3094 Wed, 02 Jun 2010 10:59:47 +0000 rasmusdotse 3094@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>Move the Breadcrumb trail out from the theme and into a widget, so it can be displayed anywhere. </p> John Myrstad on "WordPress widget ideas" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/wordpress-widget-ideas#post-3064 Thu, 13 May 2010 12:01:36 +0000 John Myrstad 3064@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>May it be possible to make widgets that show content from a custom post type ?</p> <p>Then it would be possible to edit widget content type without going to appearance&gt;widgets which might make better usability for authors.</p> <p>Imagine the front page having some neat styled widget info-boxes with icons, custom headings, typography, some short copy and a read more link.</p> <p>Custom post type might have input fields for: icon, headline, headline style, background style, copy, and read more link. </p> John Myrstad on "WordPress widget ideas" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/wordpress-widget-ideas#post-2922 Fri, 23 Apr 2010 21:09:19 +0000 John Myrstad 2922@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>- Custom fields widget(s) </p> John Myrstad on "WordPress widget ideas" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/wordpress-widget-ideas#post-2921 Fri, 23 Apr 2010 21:03:29 +0000 John Myrstad 2921@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>I also have to second Thomas suggestion to expand the Snippets features.</p> <p>I`d like to see a solution with eg 4 tabs for 4 widget areas, ( and maybe a 5th tab, a "sketch board" with TinyMCE visual editor to use for formatting of widget content with cut and paste into the 4 other tabs. ) </p> John Myrstad on "WordPress widget ideas" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/wordpress-widget-ideas#post-2920 Fri, 23 Apr 2010 20:56:45 +0000 John Myrstad 2920@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>- Related links<br /> ( some way to show manual chosen links that are related to a post/page )</p> <p>- Related documents<br /> ( some way to show manual chosen attachments/documents that are related to a post/page ) </p> SteveX on "WordPress widget ideas" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/wordpress-widget-ideas#post-2886 Fri, 09 Apr 2010 08:59:28 +0000 SteveX 2886@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>Ability to change post_type for a post </p> Thomas Clausen on "WordPress widget ideas" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/wordpress-widget-ideas#post-2859 Sat, 03 Apr 2010 06:42:33 +0000 Thomas Clausen 2859@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>Here's a few ideas:</p> <p>- Extending the My Snippets plugin, so that we can use it more than one time per post.<br /> - RSS feed mashup widget, where we could put more RSS-feeds into it<br /> - Post from the first category that this post (should only work on posts) is in<br /> - Advanced search (where the user can segment on categories, and custom taxonomies) </p> Justin Tadlock on "WordPress widget ideas" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/wordpress-widget-ideas#post-2856 Fri, 02 Apr 2010 03:32:40 +0000 Justin Tadlock 2856@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>I've been thinking of just spending some time to release a lot of cool widgets that are simple but do a job that users need. These are the kinds of things that I can build in a few hours. The idea is to build a body of work that can easily be plugged into themes with multiple widget-ready areas (i.e. Hybrid).</p> <p>I'm not thinking things as complex as my Query Posts widget, but something on a much smaller scale. Some examples:</p> <p>* Author profile<br /> * Posts from category X.<br /> * Gallery display<br /> * Post thumbs</p> <p>What I'd like to do is release about 20 or so of these widgets. But, I need ideas and lots of them. Are there any widgets you'd just love to see done? </p> Justin Tadlock on "Make hybrid tabs into a new widget area" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/make-hybrid-tabs-into-a-new-widget-area#post-1234 Thu, 07 May 2009 07:24:14 +0000 Justin Tadlock 1234@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>Thread for Hybrid Tabs ideas:<br /> <a href="http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/more-options-for-hybrid-tabs" rel="nofollow">http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/more-options-for-hybrid-tabs</a> </p> David on "Make hybrid tabs into a new widget area" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/make-hybrid-tabs-into-a-new-widget-area#post-1159 Tue, 28 Apr 2009 02:31:51 +0000 David 1159@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>That would be an interesting concept. </p> Thomas Clausen on "Make hybrid tabs into a new widget area" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/make-hybrid-tabs-into-a-new-widget-area#post-1150 Sun, 26 Apr 2009 13:46:06 +0000 Thomas Clausen 1150@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>I'm thinking that it's a bit confusing/annoying playing around with the functions.php file when adding custom stuff to <a href="http://themehybrid.com/archives/2009/01/hybrid-tabs-wordpress-plugin">Hybrid tabs</a>, but wouldn't it be possible to make the Hybrid Tabs plugin into an extra widget area?</p> <p>That way we could all just add stuff to the tabs. So that every new item added to the widget area would represent a tab.</p> <p>The backside of this is that you would have to do more steps, but I think it would be easier than playing around with the functions file.</p> <p>Steps as far as I see<br /> 1. You should tell where you would want Hybrid Tabs to appear<br /> 2. Give it a name (and this name should appear in the widgets section)<br /> 3. Go to the new widget section and add a bunch of widget you want to appear</p> <p>The great stuff is, that now you can use other great plugin widgets in the tabs area like Query Posts, plain text widget (which together with exec-php is a powerful tool) and a bunch of other plugins. </p> StormRider on "Name Hybrid widget sections and other ideas" http://themehybrid.com/community/topic/name-hybrid-widget-sections-and-other-ideas#post-675 Sat, 24 Jan 2009 23:46:07 +0000 StormRider 675@http://themehybrid.com/community/ <p>Wow!

"After Single" and "After Page" make more sense, at least to me, because they are connected to the existing hooks in the theme. I think consistency would help keep any confusion down.</p> <p>I'm not thrilled with Tertiary either. But, "outside" implies that something is on the outside when it could easily be somewhere else. Switching two lines of CSS would switch the position of Secondary and Tertiary.</p> <p>One thing I'm trying to do is to keep everything semantically correct. Outside, inside, top, bottom, left, right, and other names such as these imply that something is positioned in a certain way. I tend to lean toward "before" and "after" if I can come up with no better name because elements have to literally come before or after other elements in the source code. I'm not satisfied with before and after either though.</p> <blockquote><p> even though that Top (before content) will totally break my child theme I'm working on at the moment, if someone puts a widget in it. </p></blockquote> <p>I'm hoping that this is the last major change to the widget system for a while.
