    Thank You I think your “options” theme is probably the most powerful WP theme I ve seen . Just started setting it up and tweaking it. It’s amazing still trying to get the plug ins setup properly(im not to technical) , to take advantage of all the features. Wow very impressive work.This is what i’ve been looking for and would have gladly paid for. All the best with themehybrid.com as well.


  2. I love it, especially the frontpage intro:

    “Don’t be fooled by get-rich-quick scam sites trying to sell you “premium” themes.”

    >Respect.


  3. I agree with Milo…“Don’t be fooled by get-rich-quick scam sites trying to sell you “premium” themes.”


  4. My first post on ThemeHybrid:

    Justin, I know many WordPress premium themes which have either invalid markup or are clone of another themes..

    However, yours are the best WP themes ever, and this project is evolving.

    I’ll contribute my CSS once you bring your upcoming themes here…

    Cheers,

    WordPress inregrated Theme Editor doesnt work with new Options Theme – “Any theme here” – i dont know how it is in English language version.


  6. I am assuming that the “Any theme here” is referring to “child theme”. Besides, I don’t get it clearly what are you trying to say…

    Thanks. Options has undergone quite a life since the initial beta release in February. A lot of the stuff you see now has come from user feedback, bug reports, and just seeing how people use the theme through the support forums on my blog.

    I wanted to come out and set the tone with the new intro. I remember writing that back when I wrote the post “ Screw the premium theme market.”

    Thanks. I hope the community continues to grow and we can keep users from going to some of those fly-by-night theme operations.

    Well, I definitely try to keep the markup valid. A lot of times, some designers will tell you something can’t be done without invalidating the code, but there’s always a way.

    Definitely add your CSS. Put together a child theme for others to download. I’m thinking of extending the extend section (currently only ideas forum) to let users add this stuff.

    What is an “inregrated Theme Editor”? Is it some type of plugin? All the latest version of the themes have been tested on a default installation of WordPress 2.6.

    As far as I know, there’s only one type of WordPress installation. Different language installs just come with the included language packs.


  8. Congratulations on the launch of Theme Hybrid!

    I’m trying to find my way around here, but I have all faith that Theme Hybrid will be the best WordPress endeavor I’ll be a part of yet!

    Oh and I believe Borderman is referring to the theme editor that comes with WordPress and allows you to edit theme files from the WordPress admin panel.

    Thanks. I’m glad to have you around the new site.

    Borderman
    If you’re talking about just editing files in the default theme editor, you can edit the main theme files. You can’t edit things within the sub-folders, but there shouldn’t be much of a need to do that anyway. I wouldn’t recommend editing things in those files on a live site anyway.

    I figured it be kind of catchy!

    Hoping you guys wouldn’t take it too seriously. ;)


  10. Wow I have been hitting this link all day waiting, and probably the most progressive venture I have seen in the WP community. Very very nice. You and Ian have hit on something that is pure poetry…

    Thanks


  11. Of course not, we didn’t think Tung would take ours too seriously either ;)


  12. Justine,
    Thank you for the theme, this is what I have been looking for. I used the Beta version which looked more Magazine type. If you look at my maasaiwarrior.se you will realize that it doesn’t look like the demo or the beta version. I know I must have done something wrong or missed to implement something. Please advice.
    Thank you for any help.
    If it works I am very positive to support your open source idea. You have been very generous to all theme users. A good idea is worth supporting.


  13. Craig
    Yes, the child themes idea is going to change a lot of things for WordPress developers if we can get enough people on board. It’ll make bug fixes and upgrades so much nicer. It really allows us to extend the themes in many different ways.

    Magnus
    I’m sure he doesn’t mind. He’s probably laid back, sipping a pina colada!

    Thanks. There should be some even more exciting things coming up.

    The Visionary theme got a little bit of an update with the new version. Check out the support forums if you need help setting it up.


  14. Great job on the launch, Justin. The site looks great. Look forward to discovering all the new improvements!


  15. Thanks. I’m hoping to keep rolling out a lot of improvements on both the themes and this site in the coming months.

    It seems like I have so much to do, and so little time to do it. I’m just going to pace myself and keep trying to push along the evolution of WordPress themes.


  16. Hi Justin, I just found your site today, you do seriously good work. I’ll definitely be recommending your very well put together WP themes to friends & clients. Nice to “meet” you.


  17. Thanks. I’ll take all the traffic I can get. ;)

    And, it’s also nice to meet you.

    I love this idea, and am so pleased ot see it finally released. Can we get the theme for this site available for download too?


  19. Will
    I’ll definitely release the theme for this site. Well, I’ll release the parent theme at least. This site runs off a child theme of Hybrid.

    Jon
    Glad to be of service. ;)
