Hybrid version 0.8 discussion « Community

Welcome, guest!

Feel free to read the blog, browse for themes, or join the club.

The community forums are currently being phased out. At the end of February or early March 2012, you will no longer be able to post here. This is because the entire site is being restructured. Please use the main forums for discussions.

Hybrid version 0.8 discussion

  1. Hi Justin, just wondering what the chances of you adding BuddyPress templates to Hybrid version 0.8 is?
    On my testing, BuddyPress pages just need a few classes changed, css additions & the removal of a call to sidebar.php

    Maybe a Hybrid BuddyPress addon pack would be a good idea?
    I'd be happy to contribute if you need.

  2. are you planning to release some beta version for 0.8 version?

    Yes, there'll be a beta release of 0.8 before the final release is out.

  3. Hi Justin, just wondering what the chances of you adding BuddyPress templates to Hybrid version 0.8 is?

    There's no chance of it being in 0.8.

    I'm still deciding about how to handle the possible future integration of the two. I just haven't found a solution that appeals to me.

  4. Regarding the Custom taxonomies and post types for your new menus, just incase you have not seen/heard or implemented yet wordpress-3-0-menu-update seems that this will be part of the final menu setup...

    Seems pretty cool, although I am hoping that they drop this target="_self" pain out, I mean surely they can't leave that in there... Haven't mentioned this to anybody, but I think somebody should, don't you?

    looking forward to 0.8, I have 3.0-aplha running atm, not many posts atm but 5 custom post-types and 7 different taxonomies, if you need any testing doing...

    Keep up the good work

  5. Regarding the Custom taxonomies and post types for your new menus, just incase you have not seen/heard or implemented yet wordpress-3-0-menu-update seems that this will be part of the final menu setup...

    The code for it got removed after that post was made. But, it's been added again. There's some arguments for and against it, so we might just have to wait and see.

    Seems pretty cool, although I am hoping that they drop this target="_self" pain out, I mean surely they can't leave that in there... Haven't mentioned this to anybody, but I think somebody should, don't you?

    I've already mentioned it on Trac, but nobody's listening. Whatever happens, it'll be removed from the Hybrid theme.

  6. Ok pleased to hear you are on the case as usual. Looking forward to the new menu with all the bells and whistles, but can imagine it is going to cause all sorts of support headaches

  7. Get the Image caching

    Version 0.5 of Get the Image will be shipped with version 0.8 of Hybrid. This version will utilize the internal WordPress caching system.

    What does this mean for most people? Probably nothing, especially since WP doesn't persistently cache things across page views.

    In order to really take advantage of persistent, object-level caching, you'll need to be using a plugin such as WP File Cache:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-file-cache

    I'd also advise on reading this part of the Codex's caching documentation:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/WP_Cache#Persistent_Cache_Plugins

    I'm going to really start pushing these types of plugins for 0.8 because, from what I've seen, you'll probably need this if running multiple navigation menus (WP 3.0 feature).

  8. More efficient Authors widget

    I've been hesitant in the past to step outside the standard WP functionality with the widgets, trying to keep them as simple as possible code-wise. Unfortunately, no steps have really been made in the last couple of years to make wp_list_authors() more efficient in the core WP code.

    But, not long ago (2.7, 2.8?), transients were introduced. Transients are simply database options with an expiration date.

    In order to make the Authors widget not make 2 or 3 database calls per author (default WP functionality), it'll take advantage of a transient to only make a single database call.

  9. Post shortlink shortcode

    For those of you looking forward to the new shortlink feature in WP 3.0, I've added a quick and easy shortcode to access it:

    [entry-shortlink text="Shortlink" before="" after=""]
  10. Breadcrumb Trail: Reloaded

    I've been hard at work tonight beefing up the breadcrumb trail to take advantage of all kinds of scenarios. Here's a list of some of the changes:

    • Recognizes any hierarchical taxonomy.
    • Works with hierarchical post types.
    • Ability to add any taxonomy for a singular "post" (any post type) view.
    • Smart path handling (see below).

    The last part needs some explanation and is at the heart of the changes.

    Let's suppose you have a custom taxonomy with a structure like this:

    yoursite.com/actors/will-smith

    Your breadcrumb trail would normally read:

    Home / Will Smith

    Not very good, right? I wanted to make that better. So, if you create a page called Actors (slug of actors), you'll get this trail instead:

    Home / Actors / Will Smith

    This type of thing will work with all sorts of structures and any post type or taxonomy.

  11. Looks like some awesome additions, Justin. The reloaded Breadcrumb Trail will be especially handy.

  12. So I know 0.8 supports templating for custom post types in the sense that a post type's page can be templated. But, is there built in support for custom post type archives?

    Example:

    Custom Post Type: Movies
    Podcast Post: "How to Make a Movie"
    Post URL: example.com/movies/how-to-make-a-movie/

    If I put movies.php in my child theme then I can do whatever I want to the post. But I need a template for example.com/movies/. I could create a WP page, a new template, and link them together for every post type I have. But, it'd be nice if I could just do archive-movies.php. Thoughts?

  13. Actually, it'd be even nicer if I didn't have to create an archives page, but archives.php did all the work on its own. But if I wanted a special template for movies then I could resort to archive-movies.php.

  14. It would be nice to have an archives page auto-created for post types that need archives. I honestly want to wait until the debate has settled down a bit in the WP community on this one.

    I'm riding the fence though. Some post types need them (e.g., posts, movie and book databases) while others don't (e.g., pages, nav menus). It's more of a case-by-case scenario. Personally, I'd like to see an option for register_post_type() like public_archive or something.

  15. Version 0.8 is now out.

    Thank you to all of you that took the time to participate in this discussion. Version 0.9 discussions will open soon. ;)
