Hello tl999,

Thank for your comment and sorry for the delay. Woaw 98 is really a very high PageSpeed score, congrats!!

Thanks for reporting the “0” added at the end of messages for the contact form. I have just fixed this issue, the update will be available for download shortly.

For the tabs shortcode inside projects I will fix this ASAP, thanks for reporting it to me!

Regarding the other reported issues (SVG file export/import to IcoMoon, iPhone orientation change) I was unfortunately unable to reproduce them. Could you please make sure that you have the latest version of the theme, and eventually try to reset the theme’s settings (see the “Reset Theme” tab in the Theme Options page), hopefully that would help!

Thanks again for the details. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you encounter any other issues or if there’s anything I can do for you, I’d be happy to help ;) Sincerely, Jonathan

Hey there,

Just to confirm that the latest update of the Hybrid WordPress Theme includes a fix for the “0” added at the end of messages for the Contact Form. Also, the issue occurring on iPhone orientation change has been fixed as well in the latest version 1.8!

If you encounter any further issues please don’t hesitate to let me know, I’ll be more than happy to assist ;) Cheers, Jon

Hi, Not purchased but considering, you are one of the only developers that actually send hashtag links to the url in the browser so the back button is functional within the site so I congratulate you on that – however I think you should point it out in your description as it’s a major plus over many other one-page sites that do not do not do this, you could go to a hundred different pages in most but one click of a back button and you’ve left the site! Might as well be Flash.

My question: I love the flipping images for the projects and that’s great for projects, however I still need a photo album (photo gallery) where I can display many images with sections, how could I do that with this theme? Is there a plugin I could use?

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hello SminkyPinky,

Thanks a lot for your comment!! You are absolutely right, Bookmarkable Links and full Browser History Support are key features of my theme! I have updated the description :)

To answer your question, currently you can use the default WordPress Gallery shortcode to insert a gallery (using the Media Uploader), however there’s is no lightbox at the moment so each image thumbnail will point to the attachment page displaying the large version of the image. I plan on adding more portfolio possibilities in a future update, so if you’re specifically interested in a lightbox then keep posted for new updates!

I hope that answers your question and please do not hesitate to contact me again if there’s anything else I can inform you, I’ll be happy to hear from you ;) Best, Jonathan

Hi tl999,

Thanks for reporting this issue. Unfortunately I couldn’t reproduce this bug, could you describe more precisely what is happening? Where is located this “white line”? is it near the top header? If so, could you please try to disable the fixed header for mobiles (see Theme Options > Fixed Header) and check if this line still persists?

Thanks! I’m looking forward to your reply ;) Best, Jonathan

Hello tl999,

I just wanted to let you know that I have released the version 1.8 of the Hybrid WordPress Theme which includes a fix for the issue you reported. You can check the live preview at http://www.maddim.com/demos/hybrid-wp/ to confirm that it’s now working as expected (please make sure to clear your iPhone’s cache in order to get the latest files).

For information, it was due to a known Webkit bug affecting iOS 6.

Thank you again for reporting this issue to me, and I’m happy to announce that it has now been addressed in the latest update.

Please feel free to contact me if you need any help, I will be more than happy to assist you ;) Best, Jonathan

Hi, Please answer my question whether it is possible to use any sort of plugin or addon to get a Photo Gallery page, with thumbnails and sorting ability.

Thanks very much!

Default-user

Hi there, thanks for the response, not sure that gallery for me at present but I’m thinking for another project now.

One more question: can I actually send hyperlinks to people that will direct them to a specific page on this template if I used it, ie, if I was on the contact page, will i be able to copy the url into an email, say, and send someone a link directly to the contact page. only it doesn’t show it working like that in the demo.

Default-user

actually i think “Bookmarkable URLs” answers my question yes?

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hello SminkyPinky,

Thanks for your comments, yes you are absolutely right all links are bookmarkables! The URL in the address bar is also updated dynamically.

There are two ways to retrieve the URL for a specific section, one of them is by right-clicking the link pointing to that section and choose “Copy link address”, this will give you a link that you can pass to others (for example through email).

You can also navigate to the section (using the top menu) and copy the URL from the address bar directly. If that doesn’t work on the live preview then perhaps it’s because of the ThemeForest frame, so just access it directly at this address: http://www.maddim.com/demos/hybrid-wp/

Here are some examples:

Please don’t hesitate to let me know if that’s unclear or if you need more clarification, I’ll be happy to help ;) Best, Jon

Great theme. I am considering purchasing it.

Two questions;

1) Earlier comments describe the white bar on the iPhone. I am seeing it too. It appears if one tilts the phone from landscape to portrait, and is up to 1/4” wide, top to bottom, on the right-hand side. If one selects another item from the menu, as it ‘jumps’ to another part of the page, the white margin goes away.. I hope you an replicate. When do you think it will be fixed?

2) Does your package include an XML file from your demo?

Epilude

Jonathan I have rechecked the theme after your update. I looked at a number of pages, including the Blog. They all look fine. The margin on the right-hand side is no longer there. Good job. Thank you for your very prompt replies and the final resolution. I shall be purchasing the theme shortly. :-)

Dear Epilude thank you very much for confirming that this issue is finally fixed!

For information, it was due to a known Webkit bug affecting iOS 6.

Is it possible to get a quick look at the wp-admin area with this theme? does this theme support different color backgrounds for different types of content?

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hello,

Thanks for your message, here is a video of the backend: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkBexlVnW6I This video was made for my other Spark WordPress Theme which shares the same beautiful backend interface ;)

Regarding your question about the backgrounds, as shown in the video you can select between predefined color sets, or select your own custom background color or image. It is also possible to set different background images/colors for each sections individually via CSS using the available section classes, here is an example:

/* Set fullscreen background size for all sections */
.landing-page-section {
  -webkit-background-size: cover;
  -moz-background-size: cover;
  -o-background-size: cover;
  background-size: cover;
}

/* Define custom background images for each section */
.section-home {
  background: url('http://image.photography5.com/78381809/Landscape/Nature/Green-Plants-Birth-002.jpg');
}

.section-projects {
  background: url('http://image.photography5.com/78381809/Landscape/Nature/Green-Plants-Birth-002.jpg');
}

.section-prices {
  background: url('http://image.photography5.com/78381809/Landscape/Nature/Green-Plants-Birth-002.jpg');
}

.section-contact {
  background: url('http://image.photography5.com/78381809/Landscape/Nature/Green-Plants-Birth-002.jpg');
}

/* Some minor adjustment to avoid blank area between last section and footer */
footer { margin-top: 0; }
.landing-page-section:last-of-type {
  padding-bottom: 50px !important;
}

Don’t hesitate to let me know if you need any help with the customization ;) Cheers, Jon

Hi Jonathan, Can you tell me wich technique or plugin you’ve used to fix the browser caching? Kind regards, Meindert

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hello MKuyvenhoven,

Thanks for your message! What issue are you experimenting exactly? What do you mean by fixing the browser caching? Would you like to avoid caching, or inversely force it to cache everything? Please let me know so I can help you further! Best, Jonathan

Default-user

What I meant was: what plugin did you use to do browser caching? Or did you modify .htaccess manually?

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hey MKuyvenhoven,

Thanks for your reply. When enabling the “Speed Mode” then it will make the CSS and javascript files to be cached by the browser. For images you do need to use a plugin however, personally I’m using the “W3 Total Cache” plugin which provide browser caching for images, as well as server-caching for pages, which is useful.

Any plugin would do. Just make sure to disable the Speed Mode when using a performance plugin to avoid conflicts ;)

Best, Jonathan

Is it a bug, that i can add any custom css on a page, but nothing happens?

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hello TorbenE,

Thank you for your comment. Which version of the theme do you have? If you downloaded the theme on the 19th of May and got the version 1.5, then be aware that there was a known bug which was fixed on the day after (see version 1.6 in Theme Updates).

So just make sure to have at least version 1.6 or higher (preferable the latest available). If the problem still persist please send me a link to your site so I can take a look! Thank you!

Feel free to contact me again if you need any further assistance ;) Best, Jonathan

I am unable to get the “404 Not Found Page” to show may chosen page; just gives a ‘page not found’ message. Any thoughts?

JoNa
JoNa Author

If you can’t wait for the next update to be available then simply edit the following file:

/wp-content/themes/hybrid/404.php

and replace “spark_404_error” to “404_error” on line 9 and 10:

Before:
if (!empty($spark_options['spark_404_page'])) {
    $notfound_page_data = get_page($spark_options['spark_404_page']);
After:
if (!empty($spark_options['404_page'])) {
    $notfound_page_data = get_page($spark_options['404_page']);

That’ll fix it! Cheers ;) Jon

the current version uploaded is 1.10 ? code is the same as 1.10 when i look at the source code also.. shouldn’t it be 1.20? just making sure its not old code ?

Hello jblankley,

Thanks for your comment. There is a changelog of what was fixed/added for each version on the item description page: http://themeforest.net/item/hybrid-responsive-retina-onepage-wordpress-theme/4682141#item-description__theme-updates

If interested by the code changes I’d recommend a software like “Beyond Compare” or similar that will show you exactly what has changed.

Regarding Hybrid version 1.10 I have mainly addressed the post-specific “Custom CSS” metabox not being effective, you can see the addition in /hybrid/core/css-js-frontend.php on line 78 ;)

I hope that answers your concern! Please let me know if you need further information. Best regards, Jonathan

How is it possible to update the theme to a newer version without losing all uploaded custom icons – this doesn’t work for me :(

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hello klein0r,

Thanks for your comment! This is an interesting question that I should definitely add to the FAQ :)

The easiest way is to simply re-import your icons. To do that, go to the Theme Options page and upload the ZIP file downloaded from IcoMoon.

In case you don’t have that file anymore, look in your computer’s “Downloads” folder, or go to the IcoMoon application (it will remember your selection) and re-download it. Also, you can always recover your selection from your previous installation (click “Download Current Icons Font File” under the “Icons” tab in the Theme Options page).

I hope that helps and please don’t hesitate to contact me again if you need any further assistance! Best, Jonathan

I had the issue, that all plugin ‘add_filter’ filters have been executed/shown in the footer when I was on a blog post (like recent posts or sharing options).

I’ve added the following two lines to the footer.php to solve that:

remove_all_filters('the_content', 'plugin_filters'); add_filter('the_content', 'do_shortcode');

Hi JoNa,

Fantastic theme! Would like to purchase but I have a few questions first: The site I’m creating is image heavy, which is why I was attracted to this theme in the first place. In the demo, I’m assuming the gallery you created is based off of the standard wordpress gallery in tile type? I’m interested only in slideshows—if I chose to create a slideshow type wpgallery, would your image loading method be preserved there? What if I opt to use a third-party slideshow? I suppose basically I am asking at what point in the serving process does you lowres-highres-rd image loading take place, and does it work universally for any imagery in the site, or have you built it in specifically to the wordpress gallery?

Let me know, thanks! :grin:

Best, Erica

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hello Erica,

Thank you for your message. The Hybrid Images mechanism requires special syntax for the image tags, and currently most images are supported: featured images, project images, avatars, custom images using the [img] shortcode or nested images by wrapping your image with the following shortcode: [image]your content containing an image[/image].

There is a major update coming up soon that will add support for the WordPress Gallery by default, and for third-party plugins by making the [image] shortcode work with multiple images (currently it is limited to one image at a time).

I hope that answers your concern, and keep posted for further updates ;) Also please feel free to contact me again if you have any further questions. Best, Jonathan

Thanks Jonathan. Also, related to the comment below, is there also a way to float content to the right (with shortcodes) that take up less than the full 16 columns?

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hello epeterson001,

Thanks for your comment. To make a column float to the right, you could simply add an empty column on the left in order to assure a total width of 16.

For example if your column has a width of 10, then prepend it with one of 6:

 

[row]

[column width=six]

 

[/column]

[column width=ten]

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet!

[/column]

[/row]

Also make sure to be in “Text” mode when copy/pasting the above into your page.

I hope that answers your question, please don’t hesitate to let me know if you need further assistance with this matter or if there is anything else I can help you with! Best ;) Jonathan

Hi JoNa!

Just purchased. Can’t wait to get started. Where is the documentation? Too bad there is no search in the Comments — that would save everyone’s time.

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hello humanize,

Thanks for your comment! All the documentation is available right within the Theme Options page next to each option. You will also find an additional “Help” tab at the top. The setup is fully automated (all demo content is imported automatically) so all you have to do is to install the theme and get started by editing the pre-configured sample pages :)

Regarding a search feature for the comments, I couldn’t agree more with you!

Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you need any assistance during the customization, I’ll be happy to help. Best, Jonathan

Hey JoNa,

Just purchased the theme and I had a quick question. I can’t seem to find a way to center my columns when using less than the full sixteen standard. For instance, I would like to split up one of my pages like this…

[row] Empty Column 1 2 3 4 5 6 Empty Column [/row]

  • I can send you the code, I’m using the correct shortcodes from the documents, but it doesn’t post correctly in this comment box.

Thanks, James

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hello James,

Thank you for contacting me. You would like to center a column itself, and not just center its content, is that correct? You could create a 3-columns layout (i.e. row) and have the first and third column empty, making the 2nd one centered.

I can see that this is what you’re already doing from what you’ve posted, it isn’t working?

Here is an example of a row with 3 columns:

 

[row]

[column width=three]

 

[/column]

[column width=ten]

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet!

[/column]

[column width=three]

 

[/column]

[/row]

Make sure to be in “Text” mode when copy/pasting the above into your page.

Please let me know if I misunderstood your question, and feel free to send me a link to your site or the code you’re using that isn’t working (you can past it into a gist), so I can take a further look ;) Best, Jonathan

Jona,

This seems to be an excellent theme, and we’re strongly considering purchasing it. I have only one question: what happens in the Projects section if we publish more than eight projects? We actually have lots of them to display there, and I don’t think it would be nice to show 40-50 thumbnails without any kind of navigation/pagination controls.

Besides that, this may be just the theme we’ve been looking for.

Cheers,

Ricardo

Hello Ricardo,

Thank you for your comment! Currently all projects are displayed at once, however as per your suggestion I’m currently working on adding pagination and I will release an update with this feature later today or tomorrow! Thanks again for your message and keep posted for further updates ;) Cheers, Jonathan

Hi, after purchasing the theme and activating it to my main page, I found that my blog section has no excerpts but the full blog length one after the other. This would be duplicate content as the same text exists also if you call a single blog. I did not find any possibility to change this. The used blog template is ‘Hybrid Blog Placeholder’ Please advise me. Thanks a lot. Claudio

JoNa
JoNa Author

Hello Claudio,

Thank you for your comment. You can set excerpts by either filling the “Excerpt” metabox field, or by splitting your posts with a “More” tag, see here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Customizing_the_Read_More

If you would like automated excerpts for all your posts, then edit the following file: /wp-content/themes/hybrid/content.php and simply replace “the_content” with “the_excerpt” on line 77.

I will add an option to switch from manual to systematic excerpts in a further update ;) Please don’t hesitate to contact me again if there’s anything else I can help you with. Best, Jonathan

Hi there! I am considering purchasing this theme for a client. My questions: Are the areas widgetized? I will need to embed a video and put a subscribe form in place of the slider.

Any advice would be welcomed before I make the purchase.

Hello andreaboring,

Thank you for your message. Absolutely, it is possible to add widgets anywhere using the [widget area=one] shortcode (there are 10 areas available).
