Featured WordPress Theme: Hybrid

This week I’m going to take a look at the Hybrid Parent Theme and some of its lovely children. Before I started looking into this I was going to talk about the Hybrid Theme “Framework” but after reading this post by Justin Tadlock (Hybrid’s Developer) I realised it is much more accurate to call it a Parent Theme. If you’re interested in Theme Frameworks and terminology you should definitely look at his post. Or, if you want to download the Hybrid Theme Framework you could download Hybrid Core, which was released a few months ago.

Hybrid is a WordPress parent theme which has spawned a huge number of children. It was developed by Justin Tadlock and has been in circulation for quite a few years now.


  • Search Engine Optimized
  • 15 Page Templates
  • 8 Widget Ready Areas
  • Dedicated plugins specific to the Hybrid Theme
  • Translated into more than 20 languages

Our Mini Review

Hybrid is a fantastic theme for building your own child themes. It’s flexible, easy to set up and perfect for anyone who is making their first forays into theme development. If you want additional support and tutorials then you can sign up for the premium Hybrid Theme club. Also, Justin Tadlock’s blog is definitely worth keeping up to date with.
