Justin Tadlock, a well-known WordPress theme designer, has just announced his new WordPress theme club – Theme Hybrid. Theme Hybrid offers 2 types of memberships – free and exclusive (paid), which costs $25 per year. At the moment, there seems to be several free themes and one exclusive theme.
Exclusive members will get to enjoy 2 new “Child” themes per month. These are themes which hook onto a parent theme for added styling and/or functionality. As far as my understanding goes, they can also make it easier to upgrade themes, especially in bulk. Only the “Parent” theme would need to be updated.
I know this whole child theme/parent theme sounds really confusing. Hopefully once I learn a little bit more about them I can start writing about them on Theme Lab.
Be sure to check out Justin’s new project. It looks to be an exciting step forward in the world of WordPress themes.
Looking for web hosting?
Question: What's the best type of web hosting?
Answer: The kind you don't have to worry about.
And that's precisely why I recommend HostGator. I've been using them myself for years and they've been nothing short of superb.
Fast load times, great support, WordPress-friendly, and good prices. Not much more you can ask for.
New customers can get 25% off of any HostGator web hosting package with the coupon: themelab25percentoffNote: I am a HostGator affiliate, but that doesn't make my recommendation any less genuine.
