Hi guys

I've been working with Hybrid News, modifying styles to suit a client. I've run in to a few snags. The main thing I'm struggling with right now is the excerpt count. I have Config Asst 1.3.3 installed, actually had 1.6.1 in but saw a reference to 1.3.3 working well with Theme Options. Neither have worked for me.

Hybrid News version is 0.5.2
Custom CSS 0.95
Order 1.0
Image Cropper 1.0.10

all installed.

The only way I've found to change what is shown is via the Front Door overriding the lastn="$excerptcount" , adding a number in place of "$excerptcount"

Any tips?

    I would use the most recent version of Config Assistant. I am pretty sure it should work; at least I see no reason why it shouldn't.

    I just updated Hybrid News to version 0.5.3 in which I added default values for each theme option. This might help resolve the problem you are seeing. Otherwise, you will need to make sure you have selected a value for Excerpt Count under HN's theme options area.

    One last question on Hybrid news. I've been trying to get Remember Me to work and have failed. I tried using the comment form on the Demo site (linked to on majordojo) and see that it's not working there either. I'm pretty lost when it comes to javascript, so if anyone has any clues for this, I'd appreciate it.

    Byrne, you are a magician with these template sets. I'm amazed at how much goes into converting. Thank you for all the heavy lifting.

    It might take some time for me to fix this issue. I would suggest commenting it out for the time being so that users do not expect it to function. When I have a moment I will try and get to this.

    The alternative of course is to contract with us to help address the problem, but I understand how budgets go. :)

    Hi Annie,

    I see your a developer who's worked with the Hybrid Theme, would you be interested in a very small project?
