Hi great template would it be possible to have a parallax effect and is it possible to use animate.css

thanks

JoNa

Hello saunders-solutions,

Thank you for your comment! It’s definitely possible to use the animate.css quit simply if you’re familiar with it. Regarding a parallax effect it’s not currently included but I believe that it would be possible to implement with some adjustments.

In any case if you need any help customizing the theme I’ll be more than happy to assist you! Best regards ;) Jonathan

Thanks do you know if your theme will work with the js_composer plugin ?

JoNa

Hi Saunders,

Thanks for your message. The Hybrid WordPress Theme is compatible with most plugins, and there is no exception here. I haven’t tested this plugin myself but I’d expect it to work flawlessly like any other does :)

I hope that answers your question, please don’t hesitate to contact me again if you need any further information, I’ll be happy to help! Kind regards, Jonathan

I updated Wordpress to v8 and the Hybrid theme deactivated. Is there a compatibility issue? Restored WP v7.1 and everything works OK.

That is v3.8 and 3.71

JoNa

Hi Epilude,

Thanks for your comment! The Hybrid theme is fully compatible with WordPress 3.8 :) Which version of the theme do you have? Make sure that you have the latest.

I’m going to release an update later today, but I confirm that the current available version is already fully compatible with WordPress 3.8!

Please let me know if you need any further help with this matter, or if you would like me to take a look at your site, I’ll be more than happy to assist you. Cheers! Jonathan

Thank you Jonathan, for your very prompt reply. I have successfully installed v3.8. :big smile: Best practice seems to be to active the 2011 theme before making the upgrade, and then switching back to the Hybrid theme.
I am eagerly awaiting the upgrade of the Hybrid theme.

JoNa

That’s great! The update went through successfully without switching theme for me, anyway I’m glad that it works for you now.

I’ve just released a new version of the Hybrid theme (5.0) and it should be available for download now, check it out! Cheers :) Jon

Hi everyone,

As some of you have noticed, the Git Repository Access wasn’t working properly for the last few weeks, and I’m happy to announce that is has just been fixed! So to anyone who tried to get access to the Git Repository recently without success, please give it another try now: http://jona.maddim.com/git/

Thanks to all the great people who reported the problem! Cheers :) Jonathan

I REALLY like that ergonomic change to the back end 8) thank you for being so quick with this update!

Btw, can you tell me if you can help with adding external css/js files (plugin files, google, etc.) to the minify process? The various minify plugins on WP.org all break the site when enabled. Even W3.

Items like these are not getting minified:

wp-includes/js/jquery/ui/jquery.ui.widget.min.js

wp-includes/js/jquery/ui/jquery.ui.tabs.min.js

wp-includes/js/jquery/ui/jquery.ui.core.min.js

wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js

wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery-migrate.min.js

(I’m just trying to increase page speed more)

JoNa

Hello TehStig,

Thanks for your feedback, I’m glad you like the update! Regarding your question, the theme’s Speed Mode only minifies and merge the own CSS and JavaScript files of the theme itself, but not the ones from other third-party plugins that you’ve installed separately.

If you would like to minify files from all other plugins that aren’t related with the theme together, I recommend you to use the “W3 Total Cache” plugin. I’m using it for the live preview and it works great with the Hybrid theme. Just make sure to disable the theme’s Speed Mode in the “Theme Options” page to avoid conflicts.

I hope that answers your question! Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you need any further clarification, I’ll be pleased to help :) Cheers, Jonathan

That makes a lot more sense, thanks. I found out that I just needed to wait 24hrs for the site analyzers like GTMetrix to refresh their ratings. These issues have gone away and I’m getting 97/100 again, everything is amazing.

Hi Jona,

Could you please let me know how to change the size of the link in the header menu ?

Thanks for the reply,

BR,

Romain.

JoNa

Hello Romain,

Thanks for contacting me. You can use the typography settings available in the Theme Options page under the “Typography” tab, but that will affect all text in the page. If you want to target only the links in the header, you could do so with custom CSS:

.spark-main-menu {
    font-size: 18px;
}

Simply copy/past the above into the “Custom CSS” field in the Theme Options page.

I hope that helps! Please don’t hesitate to contact me again if you need any further assistance with this, I’ll be happy to hear from you :) Best, Jonathan

Hi,

Thanks for your awesome theme. I just have an issue with the menu. When text is too large, on a low resolution device like a phone, there is a trouble with the visibility.

I attached you a picture.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/14462059/tf/plop.jpg

Thank you !

JoNa

Hello loly2210,

Thanks for your message and for the screenshot. Go to the “Menu” tab in the Theme Options page, and change the Mobile View setting to “Use a ‹select› Dropdown Menu”.

You can alternatively hide some of the menu items for mobile by adding the class “hide-for-mobiles” as explained in the documentation panel on the right.

I hope that helps! Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance with this matter, I’ll be happy to hear from you :) Best regards, Jonathan

Default-user

This is perfect ! Thanks you ! I’m sorry, I didn’t saw this option before :( !

Just another question about colour scheme : is it possible to easily change the gray color everywhere (Like the menu or the slider background) of must I change it into the CSS classes ? I don’t mind if I have to, but I just want to be sure that there is no options for that before changing the css :).

By the way, your theme is really great :) .

Kind Regards,

Loly.

JoNa

Hey Loly,

Thanks for your reply! Please accept my sincere apologies for the delay in my reply. If you’re still looking to customize the background color of the dark areas, the simplest is to add a custom CSS rule that will override the default colors.

Just copy/past the following code to the”Custm CSS” field in the Theme Options page:

/* Change all dark areas at once */
.spark-main-header,
.dark,
.arrow-down:after {
  background: green;
}
/* Change color of text in dark areas */
.spark-main-header a,
.dark,
.dark h3 {
  color: yellow !important;
}

/* Remove black arrow from the header menu */
.spark-main-menu a {
    background: none !important;
}

That will change the dark background of all the areas where it is applied (header menu, slider area, pricing section headings, footer). You can replace the word colors (i.e. “green”, “yellow”) with color codes (e.g. ”#ffffff”).

Also, if you want to customize the colors individually for the header/slider/footer etc. then it’s also possible, for that please take a look at this previous answer of mines: http://themeforest.net/item/hybrid-responsive-retina-onepage-wordpress-theme/4682141/comments?page=3#comment_4259921

I hope that you’ll find this information useful, and again please feel free to let me know if you need any further assistance with this, I’ll be happy to help! Deepest regards, Jonathan :)

Hi!

Is it possible to change the logo size bigger?

Kind regards Arndt

JoNa

Dear Arndtk,

Thanks for your question, and sorry for the delay! Yes it’s possible to make the logo size bigger, but you will have to edit the “header.php” template file manually.

Please open the following file:
/wp-content/themes/hybrid/header.php
and edit line 89 by changing the number “50” to “100”.

Then, back to the WordPress admin, simply copy and past the following code to the “Custom CSS” field in the Theme Options page:
/* Regular (big) header state */
.spark-main-header a.logo {
  padding: 0;
}
.spark-main-header a.logo img {
  max-height: 100px;
}

/* Compacted (small) header state */
.compact-header a.logo img {
  max-height: 50px;
}

That should double the size of your logo! Let me know if that works or if you need any further assistance with this, I’ll be happy to help :) Deepest regards, Jonathan

Jonathan,

I’ve tested version 5.0 with WPML. It worked with the main language… However it didn’t with the secondary language. The broken link messages showed up again with my /en URL.

You can see the error by visiting: http://danielpadua.com then clicking: “English” in the footer.

ps: I already created a ‘translate’ page for each page in the secondary language (english).

Could you take a look at this issue please?

Thanks, Daniel

Hello,

For better understanding, I’ve opened a ticket with WPML support team, and they pointed me where the error is. The topic is in Portuguese, however, I think it can still be useful:

Hi I have a couple of presale questions:

1. Is this theme compatible with WPML now? 2. Is it possible to replace the slideshow at the top of the page with a full screen video?

thanks

JoNa

Hello lbtf1,

Thank you for contacting me! Yes the latest version of the Hybrid theme works with WPML, and you can definitely replace the top slideshow with anything else by editing the header.php file (or duplicating it in a Child Theme). Please feel free to let me know if you need any assistance with the later, I will be glad to help you out with this! :) Warm regards, Jonathan

Yes I do need assistance, please can you give instructions on exactly what to put in child theme. I have been waiting a very long time for it via your support site. In fact so long, that I ended up buying another domain and replicating the site in a different language. Your theme is good. Your support sucks.

JoNa

Dear lbtf1,

Thank you for your reply, I just saw your support ticket and have sent you a reply. Please accept my apologies for the delay, I usually try my best to answer to everyone in time but sometimes I just have too many requests! I’m really sorry for the inconvenience caused. Here’s the content from my reply to your ticket in case you didn’t get it:
Let me try to help you:

Regarding the changes you made in the file hybrid-main.js it was not necessary. Please revert back to the default file and instead go to the Theme Options page, under the “Miscellaneous” tab, and simply uncheck the checkbox next to “Smooth-scroll All Internal Links”.

About WPML, where could I see the problem happening? If you would still like to give it a try using WPML I would be pleased to try to assist you as much as I can: Please let me know where could I see the ordering problem occurring and also please send me FTP logins as well as credentials to your WordPress admin area so I can try to understand the issue better and eventually solve it.

Lastly, for your question about the fullwidth video at the top of the page, you could either disable the slides (Theme Options › Main Slider, and uncheck the “Display on the Main Landing-Page” option), and then insert your own video using the [video] shortcode available (see the Theme Options page under “Shotcodes” for details) within the page content itself. This will put the video under the header, if you would like the video to appear within the header (with a dark background) then you would have to edit the front-page.php template file. In order to achieve that, open the following file: /wp-content/themes/hybrid/front-page.php and delete lines 91 to 112 (included). This should remove the default slider, and instead you can manually put anything you want there, for example to add a shortcode you would add the following:

<?php echo do_shortcode('[video]<iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/r9LelXa3U_I" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>[/video]'); ?>

And there you have your fullwidth video! If you would like the video width to be the same as the content width, then delete from line 94 to line 109 (included) instead of the lines mentioned above. Also, if you are using the Child Theme, instead of editing this file, copy it to your Child Theme’s directory and edit the copy not the original.

I hope that you will find this information helpful. Please let me know how can I assist you further, I’m looking forward to hearing back from you and to getting you fully satisfied! Again I apologize for the inconvenience caused by the delay in my reply. I’ll do everything I can to reply faster from now on.
Deepest regards, Jonathan

Hello go_skybird,

Thanks for your comment! Here is a video that I made for my other theme “Spark”, but the backend is very similar to this Hybrid theme so you might want to take a look at it to get an overview of the backend capabilities: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkBexlVnW6I

Hi is it possible to have the blog as part of the single page like my current site http://www.saunders-it-solutions.com or like this template http://us-themes.com/wp/Corsa/

is there much difference between Hybrid and Spark? thanks

Mike

JoNa

Hello Mike,

Thank you for your comment! That’s a good question, and the answer is yes you can definitely have Blog posts listed in one of the landing-page sections (and it can be in addition to having the Blog on a separate page if desired). On the Hybrid theme you can refer to the Projects section or use the [display-posts] shortcode for further options!

Regarding main differences between my Hybrid and Spark WordPress Themes, please refer to this previous answer of mines: http://themeforest.net/author_dashboard?utf8=%E2%9C%93&filter=all&term=difference+between+hybrid+spark#comment_4627092

Hi Jonathan,

A pre-sale question here: I’m blown away by the site’s speed and (thus) image-approach (which is a lack with most one-pagers out there) and the backend (seen the Spark video), and therefore very interested! (also the fact that you seem to be quite prompt at those comments over here)

I’ve got some concerns though: The Project section for narrow screen-widths displays a tiny bit of header and text on the demo-page. I know that my titles will be longer than those, and the words in my language will be a bit longer too. I fear that those will become fairly unreadable. Is there a way to display texts differently here?

Most one-pagers on the market do have a nice built-in way of displaying ‘the team’, testimonials etc. Are these built in this theme as well?

If one wants to give the look (not the layout) a make-over; do you think that will be hard / easy to accomplish?

Keep up the good work! cheers Sjoerd

JoNa

Hi Sjoerd,

Thank you very much for your kind message! If you take another look at the “Projects” section, it doesn’t display any title on neither the Desktop nor the Tablet Views. The titles appear only when mousing-over or upon expending the projects. On the Mobile View however as there is no mouse-over we can see directly a preview of the titles. While in Landscape Mode there is enough space to see the full titles, in Portrait Mode only the beginning of the titles appears, and can be expended by a simple tap.

Even if you have very long titles, it will not cause any layout issues, as only the first characters will be directly visible. In this logic, the full titles are to be revealed by expending the projects.

Regarding the addition of more sections, the theme bundles lots of shortcodes and offers a great layout flexibility allowing you to create your own custom content, columns, etc. very easily, especially with the Enhanced Visual Editor! :) You can also customize most colors directly from the backend, and if not then the HTML structure and CSS classes are well organized and self-documented so you can pretty easily change the whole design with yet simple custom CSS rules.

I hope that answers your question, and please don’t hesitate to contact me again if you need any further information, I’ll be pleased to hear from you! Deepest regards, Jonathan

Default-user

Hi Jonathan,

I’m pretty sure the project titles for mobile-view in portrait mode isn’t going to work for me.. I’m afraid it won’t become all that pretty..

Regarding the shortcodes: is there a page / list anywhere where I can see the available shortcodes?

Hi there! I managed to change the size of the logo like mentioned in a post earlier. However, cause I changed the color of the header lines as well, I now have a small greyblack line between the navigation header and the slider. It only happens on the landing page, so I guess I would also need to change the background of the slider? Which CSS files are relevant?

Thank you very much in advance!
