1. You should mention that not all of Hybrid is loaded before “after_setup_theme, 11”. Some things come later at 12 and 13 so you can override their loading at 11.

    This had me puzzled (and theme crashed) for a while because one of my tweaks called Hybrid’s shortcode-related function and it failed at 11.

    Wouldn’t be easier to just set the priority to a very high number (e.g. 99) or a very low one (e.g. 0 or 1), so there will be a lower risk of overriding other things?

    Thank God. For a moment there I thought you had abandoned us for a career in Hollywood writing screenplays. I worried that I was going to next see your name in “rolling credits” rather than a style.css file.

    If I were asked, I’d like to see a “roll-up” of everything we’ve learned in the last six months or so in am upgraded News-type parent theme, extending beyond Prototype’s use of the Hybrid Core into Hybrid News territory – but also incorporating custom post types and the advanced taxonomy features now available in WP 3.1 – in that “make it understandible-in-the-code” manner that you’re famous for.

    Throw in the proposed site changes, a refresh of your plugins, and a copy of Kirby for Hybrid – and I’d be hard pressed to complain… On the other hand, I’m never unhappy even when your prolific output takes a direction that Im completely unaware of 😉


    1. One of the proposed site changes is coming this week. I’m just wrapping up some final stuff for it. Keep a look out for this in the next day or two.

      I’ve got some ideas about a news-type theme though. There’s just a couple of other themes I need to roll out first, but it’s at least in the works (in idea form anyway).

      I’d forgotten all about Kirby. That was a cool theme. I’m sure I have a copy laying around somewhere…

    I second the coolness of Kirby and would love to get a link to it.

    SEO support won’t go away using the remove_theme_support ();

    function outline_setup_theme() {
    	remove_theme_support( 'hybrid-core-seo' );

    Nothing happens, the Document Title, Meta, etc. are still present on the page editor.


    1. I am having the same problem. It is frustrating, as I am using WordPress SEO plugin and have noindex, nofollow on some areas of my sites, but the firsts robot meta generated is by Hybrid and it is index, follow by default.

        You guys aren’t alone. this is driving me nuts.

    2. Mike McKoy

      how did you resolve this? having the same problem.

      1. To date, I haven’t resolved this. And no official word from Justin…

        Maybe over the long weekend I’ll dig through the hybrid core code and see if I can find what is stopping it from working.

  6. So, does Hybrid News 0.3 work running on Hybrid 0.9? Thanks for all your hard work.

    Hi Justin,

    I too would like to know if upgrading from Hybrid 0.8 to 0.9 poses any risk to the Hybrid News Theme. You mention above that some Widgets may disappear. Can you elaborate on that? I use quite a lot of widgets, especially text widgets in addition to the Widget Context plugin (all of which disappeared when I created a mirror of the site), and I’d hate to have to manually reset that on the live site.

    Many thanks for all the hard work. I greatly admire your attitude and ambition.



  8. Hello evebody!

    – The sidebar area used as the content of the Widgets page template change id that was utilities-widgets-template to widgets-template.

    – Breadcrumb was improved with new classes.

    Besides the major changes that Justin mentioned these were found and had to make changes until then.

  9. Thanks for the update. I’ve been itching to upgrade my theme to 0.9 so I’ll be playing around with WP 3.1 on my sandbox this weekend.

  10. Hi,

    I came to my blog after a long period of inactivity and saw I had new updates for some plug-ins, the theme and for WordPress. I took the unfortunate decision to start with updating the theme, having no clue of the incompatibility – therefore my blog crashed immediately after updating. I can’t access it at all anymore. What can I do? I only have access to the hosting. Can I make it somehow revert to the default theme to make it reappear?

    Thanks in advance for any help,

      Do you have access to your ftp?
      If so, you may just backup and delete your theme folder… it will force WP to switch to the first available theme

  11. Excellent work,

    However, when I tried to install latest version of hybrid framework theme, I got below error. Can you help me in resolving this.

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_theme_support() in / wp-content/themes/hybrid/library/functions/sidebars.php on line 25

  12. Mike

    Love the theme, but I am experiencing the same issue as the above user. I installed the theme and now I get an error: wp-content/themes/hybrid/library/functions/sidebars.php on line 25

    I am unable to revert to my previous theme.

    Please help soon!
    Thank you.

  13. Lynne

    Yep same issue here…if would be nice if new updates that are not compatible with wordpress version would give you a warning…now I am waiting on a client to get back to me with a new password for their ftp to revert back to 8 till I can update the wp core…
