Correction to above…

Extensions can be anything, which means you DON’T have to put things there that can’t be included in the theme after Phase 2…

I was trying to say you can put the things that need to be plugins into the plugin installer instead of extensions, but actually said, you have to put them in extensions. The way it works is you can put whatever you want where ever you want so you can absolutely ensure you are OK for Phase 2.

I tried Runway. But it’s not completable with wordpress 3.6.1. Also I saw media uploader is not native uploader.

So far so good… it is hell complex without a small movie showing a brief overview. Am a visual learner. Made new CPT with it, made new taxonomy, made new field groups and fields… so far so good. I cannot see how to make a repeater field for making something like a task list. Would love to make a task list that I can tie in with a progress bar.

As for the template builder, so far so good I guess. However I do not see how I can link my field for the footer that I created “footer layout – full, half, third,quarter”... so I can have a footer with 4 widgets 3 widgets, 2 widgets or simply 1 in it.

I did not see that in the documentation.

But have to say with its complexities, it sure has a huge array of options to do things. Just wish I knew how to link all these great things to actually show something on the front end… lol

Quite excited for your truly open source and seems to be totally brand-able product.

In what way is it not compatible with WP 3.6.1? There are well over 1,000 websites running on Runway built themes, I’m sure the majority of those are on WP 3.6.x right now in 3.7. Can you provide some details?

Can you describe what you consider a native media uploader? We’re using the standard method of opening the WP Media Uploader interface inside the WP admin lightbox. Is there an example you give to show of how you would like this done differently?

I just installed the theme on my server. I use bluehost. I got an error message saying

You must have PHP v5.3.1 or later to use this theme.

You can try adding the following to the top of to your .htaccess file in the WordPress root directory:

AddType application/x-httpd-php53 .php

I added that to the top of my httaccess and it seems to have worked. Is this an issue for a lot of hosts? If that does not work, contact your host and ask them to update your PHP version. The theme will not be functional until this issue is corrected.

We uploaded the newest version of the Layout Manager so it should clear the error messages you had.

For things like widgets in the footer with the Layout Manager, we’ve found it’s more useful to allow the user to select a content source like a static block (custom post type we use) or a sidebar then popular it how they prefer. This gives the user more control since from an editor in a static block they can set any column number they need and populate it with content, add sidebars (using a short code with Sidebars extension) or anything they like. Themes using a set group of widget areas in a single footer will be a distant memory someday. We focused on full content editor and multiple source options for headers and footers. That’s the direction we’re looking.

Is this an issue for a lot of hosts?

Most hosts are running PHP 5.3.x at this point. It’s not an issue if they don’t because it can be added instantly (almost) with a quick support request. With a little over 1,000 Runway sites active we’ve had less than 10 support request. Even the few that do see that message can solve it the way you did with a single line in the .htaccess file.

Why don’t you guys ask the error and issues questions in the support forum provided for Runway? I think this thread would be more interesting with discussions of what Runway can / can’t do and where it’s going in the future.

I personally think it’s a great tool for developing WordPress Themes – i am no master at this (one day i will) and the very well documented files on the Liftoff demo child theme are extremely helpful to me.

Thanks @parallelus and your team for putting together this as an open-source project, this is really awesome!
