Justin Tadlock Launches WordPress Theme Club

Last Updated on by

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.


Leland Fiegel was the original founder of ThemeLab. He is a web developer who loves WordPress and blogging.
