I discovered the Hybrid Core a couple of weeks into my 'education' and I love the whole principle behind what you've done - not to mention the structure and the whole ethos behind it. However, I think it's really important that you need to learn to walk before you can run, so rather than diving into creating themes using the Hybrid Core, I figure it's a lot more prudent to start as simple as possible, even though I sometimes forget this and find myself skipping stages A and B, only to get bogged down in C without having a clue of what I'm doing. </p> <p>Anyway, although I'd found this site quite early on also, today I decided to work through a tutorial developed by a guy called Ian Stewart over at themeshaper.com (<a href="http://themeshaper.com/2009/06/22/wordpress-themes-templates-tutorial/" rel="nofollow">http://themeshaper.com/2009/06/22/wordpress-themes-templates-tutorial/</a>) and I've got to say it's really helping to make few principles very clear. I noticed a couple of references to yourself in some of the comments and wondered if you had any connection to Ian Stewart? Additionally I realise that the tutorial was uploaded in 2009 and acknowledge that there must have been a load of updates to Wordpress since that time, so although the tutorial seems to work fine for me on my local server, I'm wondering if a lot of what it teaches might be outdated now?</p> <p>Apologies that this thread is not directly related to Hybrid, but if anyone is starting out with Wordpress from scratch (provided the tutorial isn't too outdated) I'd recommend it as a starting point. </p> <p>Really looking forward at getting good enough to work with Hybrid though, and thanks for all your efforts to-date in making such an awesome framework.</p> <p>PS. I also came across this article today which goes on about code-bloat and too many database queries in commercial wordpress themes and frameworks - something I'd never really considered before. It's an old-ish article, but in the comments section you'll find that Hybrid was rated at the top of the tree for fewest database queries - so congratulations :)</p> <p>Edit: Whoops - and the link: <a href="http://foliovision.com/2011/03/28/paid-wordpress-themes-woo-vs-elegantthemes" rel="nofollow">http://foliovision.com/2011/03/28/paid-wordpress-themes-woo-vs-elegantthemes</a> </p>
