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.
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?
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!
I found the problem. It was a memory issue caused by the size of the theme directory. There were several large Photoshop files in the theme. Once they were removed I was able to create a standalone package.http://runwaywp.com/support/topic/standalone-version-not-working/#post-1887
We support WPML already in the current version. It was a big priority for us in the last few months as well as a big push for translations. We have a bunch of new translations completed now such as Spanish, Romanian, German, Russian, Japanese, Ukrainian, Polish and French.
There will be more translations coming as well. We’re trying to find someone that can help with Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, etc…
If you wanted to contribute, here’s the link: https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/runway-framework/
Themes will continue to be compatible with WPML so long as they follow the WordPress standards for including translation strings with the
_e() function wrappers. It’s a pretty simple thing to do and most developers remember to do this. All of the framework generated code is output with these wrappers and is included in translation files.
I’m not entirely sure why a standalone theme wouldn’t include all the child theme files. What you’ve described sounds a lot like what would occur if you created a new child theme in Runway and didn’t add any custom theme files. The Runway framework is only going to add the absolute minimum files required to generate a WP child theme, nothing more unless you tell it to. This leaves the entire process of theme design and development in your control to create exactly what you want, how you want.
If you’ve added custom files to the child theme and they are not being included in the standalone theme, let me know! I want to look into that right away because it shouldn’t happen and we’ve never seen that happen. That’s a bug we will drop everything to investigate and fix.
If you have more details about the process you’ve followed and what is occurring that will be very helpful and we will do whatever we can to ensure you get your theme working.
We have a support forum dedicated to Runway on our website where you can post questions, issues and other requests. There’s also a GitHub repository where you can post issues. Let us know how we can help and we’ll do it!http://runwaywp.com/support/
I’m loving these 100% rates, but let’s go all out and double down for next year. 200% earnings for the 9th birthday, and what the heck, maybe even 300% for the 10th birthday!
What do you think Envato?
Looks so nice, are there any themes selling on themeforest in currently? (Maybe someone has been already asked this question, but looks this topic is so hot, it’s tired to read one by one.. )
Thanks ThemeVan! We made our last 3 themes on ThemeForest using Runway. If you check our portfolio you’ll see them.
We’re also helping other authors in the process of building new themes for ThemeForest using Runway. We love getting to be involved like that and help designers/developers make the leap to ThemeForest. There’s even a few established authors moving to Runway but they don’t need our help much since they already know what they’re doing.
