  1. Just finished rebuilding my own site within Hybrid. If you can spare a moment for feedback I'd appreciate it.

    Learning Hybrid has enhanced my Wordpress knowledge tremendously, thanks for all the help and support.

  2. Wonderful! Hard to recognize Hybrid!

  3. One of the best for me. It could be on We Love WP!

  4. Overall, the design is awesome. I love seeing stuff like this built on top of Hybrid.

    The biggest issue is that your text is basically unreadable. With a better font stack, this design could look 10 times better. And, that's saying a lot because the layout, color scheme, and overall design rock.

  5. Thanks to you both for the feedback. The design is very similar to what I was running before, now it sits on top of a robust backend.

    Justin, I'm going to assume you're looking at the site with Firefox on a Windows machine. And you're right, the text looks like crap. @font-face support in FF 3.5 was something I was really looking forward to, but not like this. Obviously progressive enhancement needs solid backup.

    Setting up specific FF styles for the text is on my Dü list. Fontin Sans via @font-face is my 'ideal,' fully supported in FF 3.5, and is still, as you say, unreadable. (And if you're not using FF, then I really have some work to do!)

    If you'd like to see the site as it was 'designed,' take a look with Safari. Looks good even on a PC.

  6. That's a very good assumption. I'm using FF 3.5.2 on Windows.

    Just checked in Safari, and the two browsers' displays are worlds apart.

  7. I've settled back on a more standard font stack, and overall things are better. FF seems to render titles ok using @font-face, though so I'll stick with it there.

    Thanks for the link on font stacking. It's a good reminder to not just fall back on Helvetica.

  8. Is the @font-face embedding what makes it look like all the headings are loading up and then switching fonts? It's a very odd effect!

    Overall, great site - looks very professional.
