Hybrid theme release: Version 0.5.1

Once again, it’s upgrade time. This version of the theme is all about bug fixes. With all of the massive changes in version 0.5, I knew it wouldn’t be long before I had to put out a minor release.

I’m also changing most of the download links to Hybrid around the site to point to the WordPress.org download page. This way, I won’t be tracking the number of downloads in several different places.

And, maybe it’ll remind some of you to give it a great rating.

Version 0.5.1 bug fixes

If you are using a version of WordPress before 2.7 (not recommended), then this is a critical upgrade for you. I know I got a couple of emails about the error, but I had to put together this release.

Here are the main fixes for this release:

  • Critical error in the functions file for people using WordPress versions prior to 2.7.
  • searchform.php fixes that allow for multiple search form IDs on a single page.
  • Get the Video/Object fixes.
  • Inline documentation typos.

Get the theme

To upgrade, simply delete your old hybrid folder and replace it with the new one.

I hope you enjoy this release. If you have any questions, stop by the support forums.


  1. Hey justin – grabbing this now – finally going to make the switch from options and finally signed up for the theme club – looking forward to the conversion project – sort of

  2. Catsandbeer.com — Glad to see you hoppin’ on the Hybrid theme bandwagon.

    To be honest, I thought you were already a member of the theme club. I noticed your username came through as having signed up and wondered if it was some sort of glitch. 😉

  3. Still optioning on my live site – just started digging in to try to figure out how to (more or less) recreate the experience with hybrid

    I just wanted to confirm something with this upgrade. If we have created custom Page Templates, is it advisable to simply over right the files in the Hybrid folder, or would it be best to delete all Hybrid files, upload new Hybrid files, then add the Page Templates that we’ve created?
