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.

PattyCentral.com (Hybrid News)

  1. Here's the site: PattyCentral.com. SPECIAL NOTE: This is a music site and music will start playing when the site is loaded.

    Background: At the beginning of the year, I decided to give a shot at creating a site that does a better job of promoting musician Patty Griffin than her official site does. I knew that accomplishing the purpose would not be very difficult, but I wasn't sure how the site would be structured. It was by chance that I came across Justin's themes and originally considered using an Options-based theme. When Justin moved his emphasis to Hybrid-based themes I thought it might be wiser to go that direction as well, and I'm very glad I did because consideration of the Hybrid News child made me realize that musicians are best promoted through news stories and, in particular, new about performances and news about recordings. The Hybrid News theme was perfect, and it actually drove how the content was arranged. As a result, relatively few modifications of the basic Hybrid News theme were made, and all of those are cosmetic. Although not a modification, I decided to use a featured video post as the only post appearing in the excerpt section.

  2. Hi Russell,

    I really like what you have done with the site using the hybird news theme - it looks great. i wondered if you were able to share how you customized the header of the site? I know your using a background image, but wondered how you got the theme to do this?

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

  3. Greetings Knightly,

    All changes are in style.css. I use a single centered background image that includes the logo and tagline:
    Finally, I removed all background color from the page navigation and category navigation so that the main background shows through.

    That's it (I think).

    Russell
