At the moment I have to agree with mcollins. I also don’t use Ultimatum anymore. At least not until it gets sorted. I moved to Catalyst as well so I have a stable framework to get things going and not worry about bugs and so on.

We’re making our framework, Runway, open source and releasing it as a new project. We adapted our old theme framework into Runway and now we’re building all of our new themes using it. I had not heard of Ultimatum before, but in some ways they are similar. The idea of exporting the a child theme or template into a standalone “framework independent” version of the theme is one of the cornerstones of our framework built into the core.

It’s still in the early stages and we’ve only just started writing documentation, but we have a beta version out now for testing. If you wanted to get involved or just give it a try you can check it out here: http://runwaywp.com

And to get the beta access: http://beta.runwaywp.com

This is a long term commitment for us. Over a year of development is already in the code and we will be building all of our future themes using Runway. We have 2 dedicated staff members that work on only Runway development full time so it’s a major project and investment for us that will continue for a long time.

Downloaded and installed Runway WP, looks interesting, has potential, but cannot seem to really do much with it. Will keep an eye out for your documentation.

Hi mcollins, have you seen the new version of the ultimate theme? What do you think now?

Still has many small bugs… Not my cup of tea when I build out sites to find issues.

But as a feature do you think? Once the technical support about the key bug fixes, you think it a valid framework to create themes? Excuse my insistence but being just beginning, and I only have good knowledge of html and css (bases php) I want to make a quick and safe choice on what to use to create my themes. Thank you so much for your kindness

that is fine about the persistence as it is a good idea to get advice from people that have used the framework. If you are familiar with css, html and some very basic php, then you are better to go for a framework that has far superior support as well as many plugins built for it. Genesis Theme framework with Dynamik Web Builder Child theme. We use this in our everyday work in the studio. http://cobaltapps.com/downloads/dynamik-website-builder/ and Genesis http://www.studiopress.com/

If you ever have doubts on these things, always check on what support there is right within the WordPress Community. To do this simply search the plugin repository:

Ultimatum: http://wordpress.org/plugins/search.php?q=ultimatum
Genesis: http://wordpress.org/plugins/search.php?q=genesis&sort=

I think you get the picture now.. ;)
