comment Character encoding issue after changing servers
UTF8 Sanitize plugin is working for me (though the plugin is fairly old - says not updated in 2 years as of this comment wordpress.org/plugins/wp-utf8-sanitize ) fixing a database dump that was unclean.

Thanks for resurrecting this 2010 question! And yes indeed, Advanced Custom Fields is the way to go in 2013. :-)

Thanks @bueltge I could just as easily fork Members Only and fix the Feed Keys aspect, but, yes good point!

comment Members Only site with Feed Keys
I'm really hoping for a solution which does not require storing site authentication information in the feedreader. Without some alternate way, like with feedKeys, your solution is not good enough.

Is there a mechanism for allowing Feed Key based "authentication"?

comment Members Only site with Feed Keys
So the authentication occurs with HTTP Auth then, users will put in username and password for their feed then? Is that right? Is this compatible with online feed readers such as Google Reader?

comment How do I turn off self-closing tags for markup in WordPress (for HTML5, or HTML4, for example)?
@Ricky55 In the end self-closing tags ended up not being an issue for me and I went with just leaving them.

Can you list some filenames of such files?

comment Local copy of WordPress Codex?
This is a great lightweight way to quickly save a large group of files. I was hoping for self-contained, but I've been testing this since I opened the bounty and this is the easiest quickest way to get a local copy of the relevant docs.

@EAMann actually I know a few folks using IIS but I take your point. I will say again that the instructions linked to lack detail. There's no "recipe" created to actually run the backup.

comment Local copy of WordPress Codex?
This is pretty great. Is there a way to feed it a list of urls to capture for later viewing? And is there a way to say "go refresh this list of urls"?

comment Local copy of WordPress Codex?
Is it possible to store into a static set of html, or do I need to be running Apache/PHP (or whatever current MediaWiki requirements are) on the target device? The Implementation details lack a simple set of instructions, they instead point to other solutions in various stages of completeness. sciencemedianetwork.org/wiki/…

comment Side effects of disallowing *.php requests in production environment?
wp-admin is indeed removed. database is indeed firewalled. whole site has a load balancing infrastructure in front of it with intrusion detection included.

comment Side effects of disallowing *.php requests in production environment?
Yes, I've looked at some of the plugins we're using and we appear not to be using anything that has a "public-facing" .php file. I'll have to look at all of them a bit closer. Thanks for the coherent answer!

comment Side effects of disallowing *.php requests in production environment?
"If you code correctly, simply calling a PHP file is not enough to hack your site" yes, but WordPress and plugins are third party code. Saving to static files is not a bad idea, but for a site with a great deal of content, this has a different downside, that of a much larger file to be replicated. I appreciate the thought though. Ultimately most people are finding the premise of my question bizarre. :-( Hah! So bizarre someone felt the need to downvote. How helpful!

@Wyck, I assure you we have operations people who understand security. They deal with tens of thousands of concurrent connected users and devices continuously in other parts of our business. This is the real deal. What I'm trying to understand it myself, thus the question. :-)
