Ahh.. come on guys… at least they’ve integrated NFC :)) ... i would have laughed so much if they didn’t add NFC in this phone….

Probably won’t do anything more than airdrop knowing Apple. The way they build in restrictions on things like this. Simple things like sharing an image from my iPad to Android phone is a hassle. They intentionally add restriction on the functionality for any kind of sharing. You have to get an app that uses WiFi just to do these little things. Not because the device is incapable, but because Apple writes in limitations to block it. That’s laughable.

This is the first iPhone I’ve ever liked. I like the design and the size increase. The size of the old iPhone was a joke compared to today’s phones. They were way behind the curve in that area.

The watch looks… eh. I guess it’s better with the white band but overall not liking the look. At least they didn’t give it a round screen. It would have been been a nightmare to develop mobile websites to accommodate that interface.

Whoa, some nice frameworks over here! @Parallelus @Roxygo Are Runway and Unyson supporting Google Font integration?

Runway doesn’t have to support something in the core for you to do it because it’s not a starter theme, it’s a platform. We use Google Fonts in our themes although there is no default function in the framework to do it for us.

We’re added a new input (data-type) for a nice UI to show Google Fonts in the admin and load them automatically, but even without this you could easily add a font yourself to your own theme in minutes.

For details on the Google Font data-type we’re building now: http://runwaywp.com/support/topic/how-to-add-google-system-fonts-in-the-options-builder/

Does it have to be used with a Child theme? or can the parent theme just be used as a starter theme?

Runway takes your child theme and converts it into a standalone theme when you’re done building the theme. The result is merging only the parts you used from the framework with your custom design to build a unique standalone theme, complete free of any Runway references and white labeled. It does this automatically with a single click and provides you with a download ZIP file of your finished product.

Seems you’re the guy behind the Runway framework… Edit: just saw your logo on the footer, sorry.
worth to try anyway… maybe I’ll become elite author just like you, hahah

Yes, Runway was developed by Parallelus and we’ve used it for our last 3 themes here on ThemeForest. ;)

@dSKY – Yes. It’s ready for production. On 1 september 2014 we launched our last theme on old ThemeFuse Framework. New themes will be on Unyson Framework. Right know we have 2 important extensions to add in Unyson Framework: Contact Form Builder & Import Demo Content. More details are available on Trello Unyson Development Board: https://trello.com/b/Xm9TxasH/unyson-development

The new fee structure seems like complexity for the sake of complexity. I don’t get it. Why even explain it if the numbers work out the same? Couldn’t you put something like this into the fine print of a license or TOS and it would “legally” cover the activity but we’d never need to know about it?

Do what you need to internally to get Envato focused on the buyer but don’t turn our earnings pages into collateral damage. This is the kind of accounting trickery I would expect from a “company”, yet in my mind Envato is a community, so it’s just weird.

Note:The term “trickery” is not meant to imply you’re doing something underhanded. It just seems to fit in this case because you’re moving the money around but it all comes out the same in the end. I can’t think of any other way to describe it. Maybe shenanigans?

Hey Andy,

Because the change has some long-term consequences and substance, I felt like we needed to make it quite overt and make sure authors/community understood the new structure. We’re on a project to fix up our invoices, receipts, and financial tools and those things won’t make a lot of sense unless you see the core structure we’re building around.

I’m putting more brain cycles to the complexity point though, I feel like we need to do more work to address pages like the earnings page to make sure authors feel they are getting the information they need.

I’m amazed you’re taking the time to reply to each question personally. We all known you’re committed, but keep this up and some day you might have to BE committed. :)

I do appreciate the reply and effort it takes to do what you’re doing. Thanks.

I do not really care how they balance their books, and do not really know why they have shown us this as it does not really affect us. The only reason why I feel they have shown us is because they are taking the $2 away from us so they had to show an excuse.

That was my point. It’s a line at the bottom of a TOS page and then an announcement about moving away from the $2 fee. The rest is just internal accounting and we don’t need to know about it unless the amount we earn changes.

Some extensions are added to specific WordPress menus based on functionality. We probably need think about adding a visual indication when these menu items are first added. Especially if they exist in sub-menus of existing WP locations like Appearance, Settings, etc.

I’m glad to hear you found it. We also have a support forum on our site: http://runwaywp.com/support

Let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks!
