To answer you question about Runway modules. You are correct in that they have been replaced with the new templates and skins in Umbraco 4.7. When this book was written (and completed for production), version 4.7 still wasn't out. This is why you see references to these modules in the book. Technology changes fast. Aside from that, the contents in the book still applies to 4.x versions of Umbraco.
Thanks again for buying the book!
Cheers Nick. I worked it out eventually anyway. The removal of runway module references is possibly something to consider for the next revision of the book as I really got stuck on the forum and all the tutorials for quite a while trying to find the runway modules.
I think it caused me to re-install several times while looking for the runway module and trying different templates seeing if I could find it.
I definitely appreciate the fact that technology moves fast.
Another slight thing I noticed was on page 107 was this bit of grammar just being picky really but "Select the .ascx file that you want like to use." should read "Select the .ascx file that you would like to use." just trying to make the book better rather than nitpicking here.
