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 Does a WP site consumes memory resources when there are NO visitors?
I'm pretty sure the googlebot DOES load CSS in order to check for things like "display: none" which hide content from 'normal' visitors

comment Are there any downsides to installing WordPress on Windows versus Linux?
Although wordpress could use, for example, certain features of PHP/apache that are much better optimised on one OS or the other.

comment Can I disable the autocomplete?
I've tried that, but it doesn't appear to work. The plugin's quite old, and only mentions wordpress 2.5, so I'm guessing it's due an upgrade. The source is very simple, so I might be able to 'port' it over to wordpress 3 - will take a look.

comment How do I add a post to a menu
That's a nice simple solution. It's not EXACTLY what I was after, but it's a decent workaround, so unless I get anything else, I'll mark this accepted.

comment How can I include a post in a theme?
Do you have a link explaining some of these concepts? As I understand it, sidebar is totally misnamed - it's actually a generic placeholder for content. Is that correct? What's the 'text-widget' stuff all about? I've never come across 'widgets' in wordpress before. Thanks.

comment How can I include a post in a theme?
If you're worried about the hardcoded call in the template, how about including the post by one of the other, many fields - e.g. tags? I've had this exact problem and, to be honest, I DID just hardcode the call in the template - this isn't a public theme that will ever be reused, so I see no downside to that approach.

comment What Features would you Most Like to See Added to WordPress?
Is this question appropriate? It seems to be contrary to the FAQ ("Avoid asking questions that are subjective, argumentative, or require extended discussion.")

comment Image still linked as attachment to page even though it has been deleted
@EAMann: As a matter of interest, do you know what would happen if you manually set the post_parent to 0 (or NULL, or something)?

comment Image still linked as attachment to page even though it has been deleted
@Rick: If it were available, would a 'move image' function help in your case? I.e. if you could have a holding page/post for all images you want to exist, but not be associated with a 'real' page/post.

Since EAMann has shed some light on it, the importance of this question becomes obvious. It's one that is highly likely to trip people up, so it's pretty important (I've already upvoted it) and we should consider rewording it (e.g. "How do I completely remove an image from its associated post?") for posterity.
