    Great, Have been waiting for it from some time.
    Is it ready to work on the live blog?

    A bit dark, but I still like it.

    Well I had to upload this right away and take a look.


    Ok I believe I set this up as a child theme correctly it works and I can select it as a theme. I will leave this up for a little while so people can view it in explorer etc Looks fine in IE 7. I have been using domain to learn theme development so it might switch back and forth with my crummy theme attempt. Hybrid is awesome so far. I needed to create the hybrid folder and drop the download under that. Some people might get confused by that.

    Otherwise all I did as the readme says is to create a new folder and what I did is just drop the default images folder and the style.css and it worked like a charm.

    I seem to lose the sidebar on a [gallery] post. I just installed it so I will play with it and give my feeble feedback.

    Thanks JT above and beyond anything I have seen.

    Hello, Justin. I just tried 0.3rc1 in 2.6 and 2.7. In general, it looks great. Congratulations!

    A few details:

    * I like the idea of using Cambria for the body.
    * I like the page templates, especially the No Widgets one.
    * I like that Easy Contact, my favourite contact form, is perfectly styled out of the box. :-)
    * I like the compact 404 page (but the “try to click back” part confused me a bit — why should I go back and not just do a search?).

    * In the breadcrumbs, I’d try removing “Browse:”, to see how people would like it. Breadcrumbs are getting more common, in various interfaces, and people are getting more familiar with them, so maybe it could be OK without the explanation…
    * I see something wrong with images in archive pages, when posts don’t have thumbnails or when excerpts are too short. Maybe floats need to be cleared in some way? http://op111.net/files/tmp/wp-hybrid-03rc1-archives.png
    * I did not like the 1.5em left margin of dl. (I would prefer no left margin at all for dt, and for dd whatever margin is used for lists, blockquotes etc.)
    * I would like to see a theme with “Previous Month” and “Next Month” navigation in archive pages, but I have no idea how this could be accomodated…

    Thanks JT working on it at this moment – one thing I see now is a “/” in the title tag of your new SEO features. It seems to insert a “/” every time I save a post?

    I only noticed after saving it 10 times. But it appears with the extra slashes.

    This post has one after I deleted all the slashes. I will save it a couple more times so you can see.

  7. Craig Craig October 22, 2008 at 4:17 pm |

    Yup I made a change to the post and now 3 slashes…

  8. Craig Craig October 22, 2008 at 4:20 pm |

    Also on the posts I seemed to lose the left/right justify around images. Also it is WP 2.6.2

    Does it come in 3 columns? I’m looking to switch from blogger to wordpress hosted on my own site, but would like to also change from 2 columns to 3.

    Looks good! I’ll try it out. I would suggest packaging the theme so when people open the zip they can just drag a ‘hybrid’ folder from the zip to their themes directory. Keep up the good work!

    I love your theme, it’s simple and yet so powerful. I am spending whole day adding this and that widget. It’s amazing how many plugin-s work so nicely with your theme. I agree on the tip by Brad.. above.

    Also, you should put a brief info on what users whould have to do to get their theme look like the one shown on the DEMO ??? I see a few concern on cross-browser compability, but having seen a bunches of sites using this theme already, i’m not going to wait anymore !!

    Are you planning on releasing at least one widget for free ? It would be great help to some POOR (it’s not easy typing those words, believe me) people like me.

    Well, thank you so much. I will get some money from my mum and see if i can join your club to get that tabbed widget, as you have shown in your demo for hybrid news.
