    Wonderful theme! And at last you don’t use XHTML syntax with the wrong MIME type (text/html), but you use HTML5 with the correct MIME type.

  2. cool! I might give the framework a try by integrating the HTML5 boilerplate. I used it with Ian stewart’s toolbox theme on my site redesign : http://sideradesign.com, but I’m mising all the Hybrid goodness!

      1. thanks Justin! I am working on a theme now. It will be targeted at a specific niche and I’m currently reseraching their specific needs and requested features. Might take a long time though 🙁

      Nice design. Curious about the @fontaface stuff on your site. It seems to glitch a little as the page loads (displays the default fonts, applies the replacements, and then does it all over again). I’d like to use that property on a few things myself, but can I expect the same thing to happen?

  3. Thanks for this beauty. Great job. Will try it.

    there is a problem with breadcrumbs. It doesn’t display the category hierarchy.

    For example, the post titled “foobar” is in three categories: foo, bar, and lorem. And this is the category hierarchy:

    foo > bar > lorem

    But the breadcrumb displays only this:

    Home / foobar

    By definition, the breadcrumb should display the category hierarchy, too:

    Home / foo / bar / lorem / foobar

    The WordPress breadcrumb plugin can do this, but it would be better if the theme could handle this by default.

    1. The included breadcrumb menu works as intended. It is highly customizable if you want to do something different with it.

        How do I customize the breadcrumb? I would like to display the category hierarchy in the breadcrumb.

    I want to use the translation ready feature to display messajes in french.

    I have created a prototype-fr_FR.po file with translations but they are not displayed…
    Could you help me?

    Thanks a lot for this nice and rich theme!

      thank you for this theme and your work 🙂

      Just reminding my brethren. I think we are supposed to ask these kind of questions in the support forum and not here.

    I cannot post to the community forum. It says I must become a premium member. Please fix it.

    I think the breadcrumb cannot handle the category hierarchy.

    For example, the post titled “foobar” is in three categories: foo, bar, and lorem. And this is the category hierarchy:

    foo > bar > lorem

    The plugin should display this breadcrumb:

    Home / foo / bar / lorem / foobar

    But it displays this:

    Home / foo, bar, lorem / foobar

    How could I fix this? This output is not a breadcrumb.

  7. Hi Justine,

    I can modify the Prototype theme for my clients?

  8. Justin,

    Your theme is great. I enjoyed it very much. I spent hours and hours changing the look and feel to something unique to our church. This included altering the CSS is many places. Unfortunately, after the upgrade to prototype 0.1.1, I lost all of that. If I had only known I would have saved that CSS file or copied the site somehow. Other people like me, new to the wordpress world, will probably encounter this issue as well. Perhaps backing up the old files before copying over them? If this was done then I apologize, now how do I get to them?

    1. Sorry to hear that Scott.

      The standard way to change the css on a WordPress theme is to create a child theme (in part because of the overwrite issue you found). Here is a link to the documentation: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

      Quick Summary: You make changes to the css in a separate file and link the original stylesheet and template. That will save you from this hassle in the future. Child themes are the preferred way of editing themes (i.e., not just Prototype).

  9. Prototype is great for end user like me. It has plenty option for a wp theme. Hmm.. I can’t wait for other child theme from prototype. Good job justin

    Hi – I tried to activate Prototype on a test site and I got this error message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_theme_support() in /home1/freelas5/public_html/woothemes/wp-content/themes/prototype/library/extensions/theme-layouts.php on line 46

    Not sure if this is a problem with my WordPress install (though it seems to be fine otherwise), or if there’s a problem with Prototype.

    Not looking for support (it was just a test) – but might be useful for you to know…
