How to create your own magazine page with Hybrid

One of the things I try to stress about the Hybrid theme is its flexibility. Sometimes, it’s hard to put into words all the different things you can do, even if you’re not a developer. The only real limit is your imagination.

Community member Rusti Gregory (rgregory on the site) decided to put together a great set of videos that explains how to piece together a quick magazine page.

Here’s three things to note about the video tutorials:

  • You don’t need to know PHP.
  • You don’t have to create a custom template.
  • Everything is done with widgets and CSS.

The tools you’ll need

To follow these videos, you should have these things installed:

This is a three-part series of videos titled Magazine Theme or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Plugins. Each video will walk you through the entire process.

  1. The longer I’m around this community and the more I use this theme the more I appreciate how good it is.
    Thanks all.


    1. Thanks. I just like seeing other folks within the community giving back in some way to help everyone else.

    Thanks for the plug Justin! I just swapped the videos out for Vimeo hosted ones. I almost used up my monthly bandwidth where the original ones were hosted.


    1. Sorry about that. If I would’ve thought about it, I would’ve given you a heads up. I hope I didn’t accidentally kill your site.

      Thanks, my inspiration was http://wordpressmodder.org/ He created a video on how to work the query posts plugin, I had no idea what good it was for, but people were raving about it. After the video tutorial, I saw the light and now use it on almost every site I build with WordPress, hybrid or not.

      Thought I’d contribute this for others.
