comment Cannot load media and I get “PHP Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach(”
You are looking in the wrong plugin.php (includes/plugin.php) - your error is in wp-admin/includes/plugin.php, within the function remove_submenu_page()

comment numberposts not working
Simply replace 'numberposts' with 'posts_per_page' => 2 ... as you have it now, 'numberposts' => -1 will return ALL posts.

comment Multisite 404 errors and non-www redirecting to home page
If you've tried everything else, please make sure that your hosting service / web server supports htaccess files. If your httpd.conf does not have AllowOverride All set for your site's root directory, the htaccess file will be ignored.

comment Add Custom Fields After Page Title
Check the link I provided for get_post_meta(), which explains it in detail. You can use the function anywhere, and it just needs a post id, the name of your custom field, and whether you want a value or array (true returns a single value, false returns an array). get_the_ID() can be used in just about any page template file (home.php, index.php, single.php, page.php, etc).

comment Why do I get a WAMP homepage when clicking on specific website's URL on LocalHost?
Visiting the page will not, however, create or modify an .htaccess file.

comment Passing parameters to a custom page template using clean urls
Totally possible, but you have to be mindful of your variable slugs to avoid conflicts. Take a look at this article on the WordPress codex... this is probably the hook you would want to use and it shows a sample rewrite array... codex.wordpress.org/Plugin_API/Filter_Reference/…

comment How to redirect just one or two blog posts correctly?
Without seeing the whole thing, I'd recommend that you place it at the very top of your .htaccess - after all, since you are redirecting to another page right off the bat, there's no reason to let Apache do anything else.
