    This is an interesting application. I look forward to seeing how this develops and changes the way folks develop for WP

    Very nice work Justin. I’m liking the child theme idea a lot 😉

    Very cool stuff Justin. I’m really trying to embrace the child theme concept and stuff like this really reinforces it. I’ve been doing a lot of testing with a child theme working off Structure and trying to minimize changes directly to the theme. Hopefully, WP2.7 will have additional support for child themes as well.

    Fabulous job, man. I can say this is a revolution to the right direction, because many users already get tired redoing their job after upgrading their themes.

    I was lately testing WordPreciousss Plugin to add some PHP code in to the child theme so all the modifications can run from the child theme. However, I heard WP2.7 will do that job instead of WordPreciousss.

    Your tuts help a lot man!

    There’s a few developers on board with this idea, so I’m thinking we’re going to see a major shift in the coming months, especially so when WP 2.7 comes out, with how we create themes.

    All it really takes is a well-planned and solidly coded base theme to work with, and we get a lot more power with child themes. Plus, it’ll let me roll out updates and bug fixes a lot quicker.

    I’m using WordPress 2.7 right now on my local setup, and I can say that it full supports child themes. It’s very cool.

    J Mehmett
    Yes, WP 2.7 will do that job for us. It makes things so much easier when we can easily update our parent themes and not have to change much or anything at all.

    With the Hybrid theme I’m developing, it’ll be even more powerful than any other theme I’ve made because I’ve been building it from the start with child themes in mind. The final test will be to run my personal blog off the Hybrid theme. You’ll get to see the use of the theme on two very different sites in terms of layout and functionality.

  9. […] Let me be clear. Justin gives his theme away for free. Without getting into too much web gobbledygook, let me just say the site you’re now reading is based on Justin’s Hybrid-News child-theme (if you want to know what a child theme is, check it out here on Justin’s site.) […]
