I’m be interested in changing the name of the theme. I plan on using it with the Runway framework and plan to make significant changes to the theme; but using GoExplore as a basis for the new theme.
Normally, you should be able to just change the folder name for the theme and modify the style.css with new information; though it seems that Runway assigns an ID to the theme and so we’re presented with a dialog asking if we want to generate a new ID. It advised me that if I was just renaming the theme, to just keep the same ID. After I did that however, there were incompatibilities with the destination plugin which broke the site. Needed to start from scratch.
Hoping to bump this to get visibility. I was sent here from the GoExplore forums by a staff member thinking this would be the place to ask my questions. Please let me know if there is a more appropriate place for this question.
It should be no problem to change the theme name. I’ve done it plenty of times. I don’t think any of the destinations plugin features are connected to any of the Runway features. It should be completely separate.
Thank you for being a part of Runway. We hope you have a great experience and together we can make Runway one of the best additions to the WordPress ecosystem and theme development. We're excited to have you here!
