Hybrid theme release: Version 0.4.2

Hybrid WordPress theme: Version 0.4.2

It’s only been a few weeks since the last update of the Hybrid theme. By now, you should know that I like to keep things moving, implementing new ideas, and squashing any bugs as soon as they’re found.

This is the latest release in the 0.4 branch of Hybrid, which has been very solid thus far with few bugs.

One neat thing to note about this release is that all of the bug fixes and additional features (except one) have all been contributed through user feedback. It’s great to have the community here at Theme Hybrid contributing in this way.

Version 0.4.2 bug fixes

Most of the bugs were minor, but I think we’ve pretty much covered most of them.

  • Added some missing parameters to hybrid_category_menu().
  • use_desc_for_title was misspelled for hybrid_category_menu().
  • Authors page template had hardcoded table prefixes rather than user-defined.
  • Misspelling of application/rss+xml in the comments feed link.

Thanks to users lowlight and ac4lt for helping find bugs.

Version 0.4.2 features

Okay, there’s only one new feature. New features are usually reserved for major releases, but a few people requested this and it was easy enough to implement.

  • New <body> classes.
    • Single posts get category, tag, and author classes.
    • Pages get an author class.

You can thank users DaisyOlsen and eddiejanzer for this.

Go ahead and download the new version

I hope you enjoy this release. To upgrade, just delete your old hybrid folder and upload the new one. It’s as simple as that.

Remember to keep the praise and adoration in the comments and support questions in the support forums.

    I can’t wait to upgrade mine…
    Anyway, what about the translation? Is it need any upgrade? Because, I’m using Hybrid in my language (Bahasa Indonesia)..If yes, let me upgrade and do some necessary change on the language translation..

  4. Ian — Nope, none of the text strings have changed in this version. I’m trying to keep these to a minimum.

    New classes.

    Sorry for such a newb question, but at least I am learning

    Thanks Sir.
    But there is a major bug in the hybrid templates, I am currently using Leviathan as the child theme, and its getting all messed up in IE6.

    Hopefully you can tell me how to fix it.
