Windows 7 Fanboy: Hybrid Child theme « 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.

Windows 7 Fanboy: Hybrid Child theme

  1. This is a Hybrid child theme, based off the Hybrid News theme.

    It's far from perfect but I like the way it looks and mimics the aero glass look of Windows 7. Of course you need a browser that supports these CSS3 effects like: rounded corners, alpha transparency and text shadows.

    You can see it in action at http://windows7fanboy.com

    A few things:

    >> It supports a full page, resizable background image, using Chris Coyier's method from CSS tricks (http://css-tricks.com/perfect-full-page-background-image/). This is achieved using the Hyrbid Hook plugin, and placing the code to your background image in the "Before HTML" section of the Container Action Hooks.
    - i.e. <img class="bg" src="http://yourdomain.com/wp-content/themes/hybrid-win7/images/bkg.jpg" />

    >> Because its based on the Hybrid News theme it has a custom front page, to utilize this feature, create a page and select the "Front Page" template, leave it blank. Then go into the "Reading" section of your WP settings, and select "Front page displays a static page", then choose the page you created.

    >> The Twitter status is achieved using the Twitter for Wordpress plugin, and rather than hardcoding it in, or widgetizing it, I again used the Hybrid Hook plugin, and placed the code in the "Before Primary" section of the Widget Area Action Hooks like this:

    <div class="twitter widget">
    <div class="twitter-top">
    <h6 class="follow">Follow <a href="http://twitter.com/username/"><span class="white">username</a> on twitter</h6>
    </div>
    <?php if(function_exists('twitter_messages')) { twitter_messages('username', 1, false, true, true, true, true, false); } ?>
    </div>

    The theme is 100% GPL licensed and you can download it here:

    If you have any questions about it, or just want to thank me, feel free to leave a comment on my site at http://windows7fanboy.com/downloads/free-wordpress-theme-windows-7-fanboy-theme-based-on-hybrid-framework/

    Hope you enjoy the theme! Thanks Justin Tadlock for a great framework!
