Justin Tadlock


The creator of Hybrid WordPress Theme Framework.

    Justin’s WordPress Themes are the best I have found yet. There are endless possibilities and they are highly customizable. His themes include features I have not found anywhere else, are SEO friendly, and also make several of my usual plugins unnecessary.

    I have to say that he’s the best around. Justin thinks bigger than just how to solve a problem, he thinks “how can this solution solve other problems?” Then goes on to create a plugin or theme with huge breadth.

    Working with Justin’s framework has taught me a lot about wordpress. I use to go for premium themes but found they were too restricting. Hybrid is great!

    Justin is the most responsive guy ever. I joined the $25 a year program and it’s like having a designer and tech guy on call 24 hours a day. I don’t think he’s ever gone longer than an hour in replying to a question, and always posts fixes and examples. As a wordpress newbie, this has been incredible for me. I feel that with the framework he’s built, I’ll be able to do anything.

    Hybrid WP Theme Framework, great theme highly customizable, unlimited widget areas possibilities. You could practically trier it apart and glue it to take any form you want and it will still be very stable with valid CSS and HTML, SEO friendly, you name it. Best of all, the SUPPORT is excellent “ONE on ONE” and almost instant.
    Thanks Justin for dedicating your time on helping us.

    I have 4 blogs running; all on themes of Justin.

    Love his work….
    And extremely helpfull; questions are getting answered very quick and accurate (in his forums).

    Justin kicks ass. No other WP developer is more creative and more effective at changing the face of WP. Hybrid is by far the best framework out there. Not only has Justin made it easier to publish via WP, but he has taught me a butt load of stuff about coding.

    Best free theme ever. Excellent (and quick) support – it’s worth every penny of your $25 to join the theme club. Highly customizable.
    You rock, Justin!

    I would like to concur with all the previous posts, Justin rocks, host themes hos code his support and finally his vision, code for free pay for support!!!!! If only other so called gurus would follow suit,,,,

    I just started playing with the Hybrid Framework after a few weeks working with Thesis. Already I’m seeing a more intuitive structure with Hybrid. So although I’m new to his work, I give Justin 2 thumbs up

    I went from my own custom theme to Justin’s structure theme last year. Just switched over to Hybrid to kick the tires and I think I’ll keep it.

    I also used Options on another one of my sites.

    Justin’s Hybrid theme framework is a smart and logical solution for anyone willing to invest a bit of work to harness it’s power. I truly admire his work and am thrilled that he shares so generously.

    Justin is very thorough .. ask a question on his support forums and you’ll get an answer that blows you away. Very nice guy. Very professional themes. His themes may take a little longer to “learn the ropes of” but once you get the hang of em, they really shine!

    Great work, easy to use.

    I have been using justin´s template and tutorials since 2007 and he still keeps getting better and better. Both templates and the support on his site are the best

    Yah, I absolutely agree with all of the above – I’ve been using Justin’s themes since the Options theme and they rock. And indeed – his replies are speedy and to the point :)

    I am, just like most of the above, in love with Justin’s work. You can build practically any type of website/blog using his framework and it really doesn’t take any toll on creativity.
    You can start from scratch or use the preset CSS templates that include styling rules for all HTML elements.

    To put it bluntly… his framework is the best by far.
    Not to mention it’s free. You can use his themes or child-themes, modified or not and you don’t even even have to credit him for it. It’s completely optional.
    So I was wondering: why hasn’t he joined the WP developing team? I’m sure he’s been noticed.

    Perhaps it’s because he charges a 25$ annual fee for membership. Being a member means all your hybrid-theme (hence WP) related questions get answered by him or someone else from the club (he’s not the only talented one in there).

    In any discussion about Hybrid membership I read: “Those 25 bucks have been my last year’s best investment. It was worth every penny.”

    I bet you’re wondering: am I a member?
    Not yet. I’m waiting to see if I win the membership by being in the first three in the 404 page competition he organized.
    If I don’t, I’ll sure be a paying member.

    Justin you rock! Thank you for your amazing and selfless work.

    Am I the only one who thinks this guy is a cocky asshole?

    Here I was thinking that I was the only person that thought that. I’m glad I found someone else with the same viewpoint as me.

    As an experienced IT vet but relatively new to WP, I’m picky about content quality and the way info is presented. Justin Tadlock is one of only a handful of WP tech specialists with that elusive combination of technical skills, objectivity and vision, all wrapped in a neat cloak of professionalism. He should be cloned!
