    The constant updates are a perk, rather than a problem. Keep up the great work!


  2. Thanks. My main focus right now is to make sure we’re as completely free of bugs as possible. Then, I want to start making the theme as lean as I can get it.

    Strange problem here Justin. I was upgrading Hybrid, so I unzipped and overwrited the files, but when it was done the theme dissappeared from my “Available Themes” page.

    All the files are in wp-content/themes/hybrid, but it’s not showing up in the CP. Tried deleting and reinstalling, still not there.


  4. Of course I figure it out within minutes of posting this! No worries!

    Hybrid is definitely going to be a fast-moving theme, especially since I’m planning on building 90%+ of future projects on top of it.

    I think of Hybrid as being a set of tools that allows me to run my site in any way I like.


  6. Justin, sorry to leave a comment in an inappropriate place but bbpress isn’t letting me log in the past few days – it appears to accept the login information and takes me back to the page I was at but still not logged in. I can log in fine in the main section of the website (obviously!) so I’m not sure what’s wrong. Any ideas?

    Also, do we have a guestimate time frame for a Hybrid 0.4 release? I recall you mentioned the next release would probably be 0.4 and I’m more and more convinced that the next iteration of ATMac should be WP2.7 + Hybrid. I’d like to wait until it’s a touch more stable though, as it seems to be a fast moving target still. I like fast moving targets, but it can be a lot of work to keep up!

    I’m thinking I should have version 0.4 out before the end of the year, but don’t hold me to that.

    Although Hybrid is a fast-moving theme, it’s stable now. I worked on it around four months before even releasing it just to make sure it would be stable enough to take on regular updates. I don’t think I’ve made any changes from version 0.3 to 0.3.3 that have broken anyone’s child themes. The reason I made Hybrid is so I could update it often without breaking stuff.


  8. Hi Justin!

    I’m very impressed with you and your themes! I’m going to test out Hybrid on a new webssite hosted on Hostgator.

    I don’t seem to be able to get WP version 2.7 on Hostgator.

    I have version 2.6.2 Will this new Hybrid them work on that?

    Thanks so much for everything!


  9. Thanks Justin! I’m trying it out, but honestly, I’m having great difficulty getting the child them to activate and getting the pages I created to show up. I use Dreamweaver templates for my websites now and Typepad for blogging. I know how to use CSS but the child CSS doesn’t seem to affect anything. Do you offer one-on-one consulting to walk me through just getting it to work?

    I’ve used WP before, but never with a child theme. I’ve read your instructions but something isn’t clicking. I think you are 100% right in theory about using child themes…but if I can’t make this work I’m really going to have reconsider using Word Press at all. Maybe it is best in the long run to just stick with what I know. I’ve spent 2 days on this already! I think this is why I gave up on it 3 years ago. It just consumes so much time. I really need to focus on writing and creating, not programming. Please say you can help : ) Maybe just an hour of your time?
