  1. Wow, great update!
    Personaly, i loved the new responsible menu, glad you liked my sugestion 🙂

    But just wondering: why replace the old h3, breadcumbs and sidebar-title styles for those new ones?

    1. Thanks for the great feedback 🙂

      I decided to change the heading styles because the old ones lacked a lot of contrast and looked boring.

      What do you not like about them and do you have any other suggestion?

      1. Anytime (:

        I liked the old ones, they just seemed to fit the design. The new ones seems to not fit the theme, dunno how to explain it.

        I’m using parts of the 1.2 visual on a new theme for our website, the one i was talking about. Can’t put the link public, but i can share over mail if you want. Would be great to get some feedback anyway 🙂

  2. Hi, Maybe this isn’t the right forum for a question, but here goes anyway: I’m trying to find a plug-in that allows me to manage the author that appears on the post. That is, someone else should get credit as the author even though I happen to have posted the text. I’ve tried a couple of plug-ins that don’t seem to work with the newest WP. Also, “Custom Author Byline” plus Cakifo the post editor page seems to accept a changed author but it doesn’t display that way on the page. I’d welcome any suggestions you might have… P.S. I like your aesthetics.

    1. Hello Mike,

      Thank you.

      When you add/edit a post there should be a box called ‘Author’. If not, you might have to click on ‘Screen Options’ in the top right corner and turn it on. That should make you able to change the post author.

  3. I really really love this theme..
    But.. Can i remove “featured image” or “thumbnail” on single post while not losing thumbnail on “slider” and “related article”.??

    1. Hello Anindya,

      You should create a child theme ( and do something like this:

      add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'my_child_setup', 11 );
      function my_child_setup() {
      	/* Get the parent theme prefix. */
      	$prefix = hybrid_get_prefix();
      	/* Remove thumbnail from single pages. */
      	add_action( 'get_the_image', 'my_child_get_the_image' );
      	/* Other Actions and filters calls go here. */
      function my_child_get_the_image( $image ) {
      	if ( is_single() )
      	return $image;

      I haven’t tested it but it should work.

      Hope that helps you. If you have any questions beside this one, I recommend you sign-up for support on Theme Hybrid.

  4. There is somthing problems:

    I’ve created gallery with “two columns” layout, but the thumbnail has broken, check on my blog..
    Jetpack’s plugin have “tiled gallery” feature, but its not working with ur theme..

    1. Hello Anindya,

      What do you mean by the thumbnail is broken? I see every image fine on the page you’re linking to.

      I’m sorry that the “tiled gallery” feature in Jetpack doesn’t work but Jetpack doesn’t allow installations on local sites so I can’t test the theme with that plugin.
