    Hi Justin,

    Firstly, well done on all the work you have put in to release a leaner framework and more effective base for us to create our sites.

    As an avid user of the Options theme, I have taken the plunge to opt for your Hybrid framework.

    I hope this will be the right move as it does mean a lot of work initially to move things over.

    Plus, the issue of custom fields like Image, Feature Image, Thumbnails etc. How am I going to convert my site to utilise these in the new version etc.

    If there is a guide or pointers that could help with the overall process, please let me know. As any help with this will be much appreciated.

    Oh.. I was waiting for this release. Came at a perfect time.

    I had a client convinced to wait till this version is out before i start working. Also I planned to come up with few child themes based on hybrid for distribution. Good i waited else i would have to revisit the code again.. ;-)

    Time to go to the sandbox and begin testing the new theme. Gzip with WordPress 2.8 coupled with leaner hybrid code smell good pageload times to me. Off late I have been very picky on decreasing page load times wrt SEO. Thanks again.

    As I commented before – started tinkering with previous version, considering it for custom child theme. Took a pause for this release and happy to see it. :)

    Question – is Skeleton (that is suggested basis for child theme as I understood) need/will be updated to reflect changes in WP 2.8/Hybrid 0.6 ?

    Hello Justin,

    I am a great fan of hybrid and has been using it on both of my blogs. One thing I noticed and is bugging me that the auto thumbnail function is not working after upgrading to WP 2.8 and Hybrid 0.6. Any idea why this might be happening.

    I’ve created several sub-theme based on Hybrid. It makes designing so much easier.
    Thanks very much for Hybrid Theme!

    Huh. Something changed, noticeably, with my titles.

    Now my home page title is ‘Welcome’ and none of my pages have my site name (it used to be ‘title’ – ‘website name’).

    Great release, Justin!

    I am especially impressed by all the functionality you cram into so little code.
    Going to test it immediately on a clients project!

    I bow to your generosity.

    Hey, Justin, good job! I hope you enjoy the game of golf… you deserve it!

    Any effects the new Hybrid will have on Hybrid News?

  12. Jarret Jarret June 17, 2009 at 1:16 am |

    Thanks for updating the theme and making it much cleaner and lighter.

    I have two questions for you though. Is the default Hybrid supposed to be this bare? As in no colors/design?

    And….Hybrid News. Maybe its just me and I am having some bad luck but when I download it and activate it doesn’t display how the demo displays it. Is this because of the changes you made to 0.6?

    I’m using Hybrid News on a site. Will it continue to work if I upgrade the Hybrid theme?

    Great job, Justin.
    I am waiting for releasing the hybrid 0.6.

    I am impressed by the new templates and the layout stylesheet files.
    Especally, I’m happy knowing to include the layout stylesheets files.

    Going to test it immediately.

    Thank you so much.
    I really love working with the hybrid theme framework. I can go from mock-up to a full site within a day instead of a week.

    Great Work!!!

    I like Hybrid News and every time I got time, I am trying to study the codes so that I could customize the appearance of the site. Great work Justin, keep it up!

  24. indyan indyan July 2, 2009 at 4:24 am |

    It really looks awesome. Possibly the best free them out there. But too bad I can’t get it to work and cant afford to spend $25 bucks for support either.

    The problem isn’t with the theme. Its somethng else. No theme or plugin using jquery is working. I even tried disabling all plugins. Even that didn’t work. I am out of ideas as to how I should fix this issue. This occurs even with the current theme I am using. Plugins based on jquery refuse to work.

    I must say my best words to your Hybrid theme – I wanted to create a new design to my website, and after long search for premium themes..to buy, I returned here, bought your support.. and now browsing through all tutorials to get my feet on.

    It’s pretty hard to remember all those snippets if you’re not coding and using it daily, but I hope at the end there will be very good child theme :)

    And I really promise I will write review about using this beautiful framework, when I will be finished, though I am a little bit shy to ask for support, because 25$ is really cheap for such services..

    so many themes look styling and fancy color over the page, but i found Hybrid news theme not only awesome design but suit for SEOer, glad to be a part of your theme fans, thanks for the fully support, Justin.

    I was all confused and trying to figure out what happened switched back and they came back. Did the settings move, or is it all functions now?
