I am a PhD student at the Algorithms & Complexity group at University of Kaiserslautern, Germany. I research design and analysis of parallel algorithms and data structures.

In my free time I read books, enjoy (and sometimes make) music, code, work out and roam the webs.

comment HTML tags in Wordpress image caption
Using <dl> for this purpose strikes me as odd, especially from a semantic viewpoint. Also, it is not stable against changes to Wordpress and your preferences; if anything changes, you have to manually edit all prior posts or bear with broken/different looking posts.

comment How to Compress PHP output in my plugin?
@Jared separation of concerns. You provide the functionality without being stupid, let others handle how to deliver it efficiently. Also, always remember that gezipping takes time, as does connection initialisation (independent of how many you transfer). Compression only pays off for sufficiently large and compressible data. For me, the best speed improvement was achieved (besides caching) by enabling pipelining (both on server and client) and to configure the browser to start rendering while it still receives data.

comment Get all image from single page using this query
Apparently the use of query_posts is not without drawbacks. Have you tried using get_posts instead? But then, I think using The Loop at all in this case is overkill. Just hardcode the page ID into your call to get_posts (which is currently inside The Loop).

comment Objective Best Practices for Plugin Development?
Instead of using a constant, use plugin_basename(__FILE__) to figure the plugin's local name out. That is useful for having copies of the same plugin (testing, multiple accounts elsewhere but only one per plugin, ...), too.

How does this scale when a user wants to have a dozen different background classes, each to use from a different shortcode?

I understand what you are getting at, thanks.

comment How to store a medium amount of options?
I would consider this good general advice, but it does not answer my question. In your terms, I am looking for a decent implementation now. (Although I do not encapsulate that properly atm, bad me ;)) Also, does not WP itself provide exactly that level of abstraction?
