Add define('WP_DEBUG', true); to your site's wp-config.php. That will cause errors, warnings, and notices (non-fatal warnings) to print to the screen. Those are the "debug information" so frequently requested. It is not advisable to have this enabled on a production (publicly accessible) server but if you have to have the debugging information then you ...

Supporting old versions of WordPress seems reasonable, but is it really necessary? Personally, I think supporting old versions is waste of efforts and time and it prevents end-users from updating their WordPress installs. What's the point of being a WordPress developer if you're encouraging users to remain using insecure and out-of-date versions? Just ...

Well, someone has to be hosting it, so I recommend tracking them down. I've taken the liberty of doing this for you (using WhoIsHostingThis?). Your host is IX Web Hosting, contact their customer support and see if you can either get them to do the upgrade for you or, preferably, get them to give you admin access to your site.

Custom Post Types are a good solution for you what you are trying to achieve. In fact, in almost all cases, where regular Post of Page types don't fit your use-case, then Custom Post Types will. They should be thought of more as Custom Content Types rather than the aforementioned. That gives a little significance to their purpose. Do you need the Posts 2 ...

I think support for backwards-compatibility for at least one major WordPress version is reasonable, though there's also nothing wrong with requiring the current version. Some functionality just can't be implemented in a way that degrades gracefully (see e.g.: Post Formats). There are cases where 2 major versions might be necessary, but anything beyond that ...

WordPress is constantly being improved, I say create for the current version and leave the rest behind.

As far as freelancing goes, I generally include documentation on the usual tasks and some update/security caveats (a PDF and/or something in the WP dashboard) in the initial fee and build and make it clear that any further questions and support will be charged hourly. This is 100% because of the nature of the clients I accept: classical musicians and the ...

Yes, this can be done. Here's how: get_post_types( array('supports' => array('page-attributes')), 'names', 'OR'); This Trac ticket provides some explanation as to why that last parameter—the 'OR'—is necessary: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/17620

There are two separate post meta values related to this behavior: _edit_lock - holds timestamp when post was last locked; _edit_last - hold ID of user who last edited post. Most likely these somehow got out of sync - lock was triggered recently, but user wasn't properly updated. Hard to guess why from information you provided.

In gallery settings there is an checkbox option called "Deactivate gallery page link:" When that is checked "The album will not link to a gallery subpage. The gallery is shown on the same page. " You may have already done it but if not uncheck it if its checked and see what happens. David

You're wanting a CSS dropline menu, from what I gather. Basic example code: http://www.cssplay.co.uk/menus/pro_dropline2-5.html Tutorial, with jQuery code on making it look super spiffy (via SuperFish): http://users.tpg.com.au/j_birch/plugins/superfish/#sample4

Thank you for reporting on this issue. Regarding the template system, I once more updated it, thinking the new version is easier to the user. I know it still lacks a big rewrite to make it user-friendly. The underlying code is pretty much set to use any new idea for it. I added some upgrade notices for version 0.17 and 0.18. I guess it wasn't clear enough. ...

If you're looking for a "talk with a representative" type chat plugin I found that www.oggchat.com was a reasonable one, and they have a Wordpress plugin to go with it. It supports the rep chatting from either the Oggchat website or via Gtalk, so your rep could be anywhere at any time, with a smartphone and a Gtalk program. If it's a "users on the site can ...

The honest answer is that multilingual e-commerce is very difficult and poorly supported across the board. Even stand alone e-commerce applications that have many years of history have no support or very poor support for multilingual content, enterprise level platforms included. I would expect that since WordPress itself does not really have strong support ...

How likely is it that admins decide not to update WordPress, but still update the individual plugins? Won't they just have forgotten the site? Set it up for a client, and then only touch it again when it needs an improvement (or is hacked because vulnerabilities were not patched...). If you don't want to include too many backwards compatible hacks in your ...

If your blog is self-hosted, the easiest way to add a comment voting system is to install a plugin (e.g. Comment Rating). If your blog is on WordPress.com, then you'd need to go through the options the options on WordPress.com to see where you could enable that functionality.

As you have already pointed out there is no right answer to this but here is how I deal with WP sites after they are done. When building a WP site for a client, through the whole process we make them aware of our aftersales support. Our support has different levels with the levels giving better SLA's than the last one. The client can purchase so many hours ...

What plug-in are you using to display the post thumbnails? This one works : http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-category-thumbnail/. It requires you to use the regenerate thumbnails plugin on existing images, but after you install it the thumbnails will be the size you specify. You might be able to install the regenerate thumbnails plugin to get the ...
