@feeling4design

What mcollins told you is exactly right. The framework is designed to fit into the ThemeForest rules. The earlier posts from users unsure if it met the Phase 1 and 2 requirements didn’t really know how Runway worked and were just guessing, but they were wrong. The framework exceeds the Phase 1 and 2 requirements for ThemeForest.

We built extensions to allow native theme functionality to be easily integrated in a modular way. To take the framework further we added a plugin installer to allow you to attach plugins, as recommended by ThemeForest, and then to go even another step we added an option to allow any Runway Extension to be installed as a plugin also. You just check a box when setting up Runway and building your theme and it lets you specify for any extension to actually be installed at the time of the theme install as a native WordPress plugin. The framework does all the conversion of the code and make sure the extension will work as a plugin, it’s pretty cool.

Let me know if you have any other questions. I’ll check into getting Runway added to the list of frameworks, but that won’t prevent you from using it now. There is no requirement to select a framework in that field. It’s an optional setting and we already have 3 themes for sale on ThemeForest built with Runway so you’re safe to move ahead.

Thanks!

Inside the repository there is no “Liftoff” theme, and there are no extensions. How can we evaluate / play with this?

You can find the LiftOff theme inside the “framework/themes/default.zip” of the downloaded Runway package. If you activate Runway as your theme it will prompt you to install this default theme automatically and then you just click “OK” and it will do everything for you.

The Extensions server was not working properly after the v1.1 update last week but I’ve just published fixes for that and updated the server to ensure you can now download the Extensions from the Runway admin. You’ll need to download the v1.1.2 update to Runway for this to work on your install. It’s available here: https://github.com/parallelus/Runway-Framework

Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help!

After installing Runway and activating Liftoff theme I get these following warnings as well as these recommendations and info messages. Should I care about all of them? Because I am developing a WP Theme to submit on ThemeForest,

Warning messages

Thanks for checking with us on these things! You don’t have anything to worry about, however I’ve gone ahead and pushed a couple fixes for some of these to ease your mind already. I’ve added specific notes about each section below.

Thanks!

The files with the DOS/Unix line endings are all included in the code editor: runway-framework/data-types/code-editor. These will not prevent the theme from being accepted on ThemeForest, however I’ve updated these in the ‘develop’ branch of Runway and pushed those changes already. You can download the updated repository with that modification now.

I’ll run a scan on those to update them on Github to have consistent line endings.

WARNING: Found wrong tag, remove from your style.css header.

The ‘wrong tag’ is also something you can ignore. It’s saying that you have a tag listed in the style.css header that’s not an ‘approved’ WordPress.com/org tag. You can put anything you want in those tags, it makes no difference in a premium theme. This only matters if you plan to upload to the WP repository.

Ignore all of the “RECOMMENDED” notices. Most of those are saying, “You’re not using the fancy header feature we built into the core of WordPress, but shouldn’t have because things like that should be left to theme developers instead.” and other such non-sense. Unless you want to use the default WP Header and Custom Background tools you should just skip that entirely.

I’ve added the missing text domains to the files listed and pushed the changes to the ‘develop’ branch also. Regardless, those couple references will not prevent the theme from being accepted.

The “INFO” can also be ignored. These are helper files in the “Runway Dashboard” which only gets included into your development version. Once you generate the standalone theme these files are removed from your theme because they’re unnecessary outside the scope of Runway as a development tool.

Installed it and had a brief look. Just a quick question.

Is it possible to remove the options page and add all the options to the native WordPress customizer?

Yes, you can select any group of options to be added to the Customizer. Click the edit button for a section in the options builder and you can enable the options to be added to the Customizer. There isn’t an option to remove the admin page, but you can place it in the default WordPress “Appearance” menu area. Also you can use our Admin Menu Editor you could completely delete the admin menu item for any custom admin pages added with the options builder, but there’s no reason you have to do that.

I’d recommend leaving the options duplicated in the admin since it’s not always easy or convenient to use the Customizer and some users just don’t like it. Why not make the options accessible in both ways for a user to choose how they want to work with them, that’s my view. This is what Runway does by default, but it also makes it possible for you to do it however you prefer.

How difficult is it to add new Data-Types?

Considering dropping Redux as despite all of the praise it gets, it’s incomplete in a lot of areas, especially support of the customizer. Even after getting the Redux Slider field (and other ‘custom setting fields’) to work in the customizer, things just don’t line up because they’re not intended to be in the customizer for whatever reason.

@Landonw If you are considering dropping Redux because of customiser support, then why not swap out customiser and give it a hit of steroids by using Kirki which plays nice with redux. Alternatively, if you are so keen to drop Redux, then why not take a look at Titan Framework, or even VafPress. both of these are underdogs, but both are growing rapidly and supported nicely.

I’ll try out Kirki, hopefully it looks exactly like the standard customizer as my main goal is to keep users comfortable by using familiar interfaces.
