We feel the same. Runway makes it a little easier to transition into WordPress and bridges the gap for designers without a lot of development knowledge.

We’ve been tweaking the login system and that might be what you were seeing. Let us know if you still get errors on the site and we’ll get that fixed.

Hi, i’m very new to all this but and after spending the last day or two looking at various frameworks i stumbled up on this so thought i’d try it out.

I’ve installed on 2 different servers with 2 different hosts (VPS.net & Media Temple) and i just get error after error. Can’t install extensions on one and the other didn’t even install the Lift Off child theme.

One had 6 failed tests, the other 4.

I guess this isn’t really aimed at beginners like myself but it’s put me off completely i’m afraid.

I’m sorry you had trouble. We’ve built the Runway framework with the intention of anyone being able to use it. Right now it is best suited for someone wanting to make a custom theme, but using the default child theme it can also work as “site builder” framework. That’s where the child theme’s become useful. We currently only have the one child theme but there will be more starter themes added to the repository.

When you see those “failed tests” it is alerting you that certain folders or settings aren’t configured. By clicking the link in that message you will be taken to the “Reports” screen with a button at the top labeled, “Fix all issues” which should resolve everything with a single click.

In the update we’re preparing right now, those issues are automatically resolved before the notice is shown. This way you wouldn’t even need to access that page.

If you need any help or have support questions we’re here to provide any assistance we can. There is a dedicated support forum on the main framework site: http://runwaywp.com/support/

We’re always looking for ways to improve Runway to make it even better. It’s this kind of feedback from users like yourself that helps us find ways to streamline setup and make Runway easier to use. We hope you’ll let us know more about the things you saw and any suggestions you have so we can continue to improve Runway.

That is really great to hear. We’re keeping busy adding even more awesome features. We’ve just finished an update to select individual Extensions to install as plugins. This way, no matter how you structure your code, it stays 100% compliant with the ThemeForest phase 2 requirements.

We’re really interested in knowing your feedback, features you would like and anything else you can think of to make Runway even better. We may be spending some time working directly with designers and developers to help them build themes and get started releasing products.

If you have suggestions we want to know about them. We’re eager to add new functionality to make Runway even more useful. Visit our support forum and tell us what you need to make Runway your perfect theme development environment.

We’re also finishing a new Runway theme right now to be released on ThemeForest later this month. We have a promotion going specific to our new theme, you can get it free before the release, so be sure to subscribe to our Twitter feed (https://twitter.com/runwaywp) and we’ll post details there very soon.

For someone who is possibly looking into starting WordPress development this looks like it could come in quite handy.

Really looking forward to using this in the future.

Have you guys thought about taking donations? I’m sure authors who use it, and appreciate it wouldn’t mind donating to keep development possible :).

For sure! I’m already on the forum and following on Twitter.

I’d like to book one of those “collaborations” between you and designers/developers :D
