Currently using wordpress for two purposes:

  1. Hosting a fairly traditional blog, albeit one with a great many individual bloggers (193 at the last count)

  2. Building an aggregation site with no blog or comment functions, but some simple CMS requirements

comment What's the URL for a category archive?
Unfortunately, that doesn't quite work. It limits the month to February OK, but the year filter doesn't take effect, so I end up with posts from Feb 2011, Feb 2010, etc.

My /category/[slug]/ URL only displays the most recent 10 posts, with no links to any others. Is there a way I can paginate them?

comment Problem with guids and absolute links
1) Yes, that's exactly what I'm doing (now) 2) I'll check out your plugin - thanks. One issue surrounds the upload directory location and how that behaves if changed - I need to read up on that and understand it!

comment How do I turn off self-closing tags for markup in WordPress (for HTML5, or HTML4, for example)?
@artlung: I think the problem is that some people have assumed you're not aware that "<br />", "<br>" and even "<br><br />" are all perfectly valid HTML5. However, I think your question is totally valid, regardless of where HTML5 goes in the future, if reworded; wordpress should be able to produce valid HTML4, after all.

Can someone please re-title this along the lines of "How do I remove trailing-slashes from self-closing elements in wordpress-generated markup"?

comment How do I view a feed consisting of posts from multiple categories?
That looks great, although a) It would be useful to include that solution directly in the answer (but that's probably a whole meta discussion) b) The solution is perfect, EXCEPT for the fact that the feed's title (via wp_title_rss()?) is determined by the first category, which isn't really what I want. I think I'll probably just get it to read from $_GET, since I actually want my title to be completely unrelated to any category's title.

comment Can I disable the autocomplete?
I would, certainly, prefer to do that. However, it would be nice to do that in as clean a way as possible - currently, I feel sorich87's solution is less intrusive than renaming files, etc. The method used to load the suggest library REALLY implies there must be a nice flexible way of disabling it ...

There's still scope for someone to improve on this answer, although it's the best so far. Ideally, there would be a nice clean way of disabling the ajax request in the first place.

comment Can I disable the autocomplete?
This looks very close to an excellent answer, BUT ... it doesn't work for me. The values of the referrer and the admin url are the problem - the former is being reported with the query params (edit.php?post_type=post&) whilst the latter is just 'edit.php'. I've fixed that with a call to strpos() and a check on '=== 0', but if you can think of a better way, please include it. With that in place, it works - almost - perfectly.
