I'm a web developer for Limelight Department. I work with your typical web-based languages including: PHP, MySQL and jQuery. I prefer to build websites with WordPress, but have also created websites from scratch, sometimes with custom content management solutions.

I've also worked with many third party API's, typically using PHP and cURL to transport JSON requests. Some of these API's I am familiar with are: Facebook, PayPal, Authorize.Net, Paytronix and Mailchimp.

I am very experienced with WordPress and plugin development, although my plugins are currently for private use. You won't find any on WordPress.org (yet). Not because I can't or don't want to release plugins there, I just prefer to keep developments for our clients closed-source. They are usually very specific and are not regularly updated.

However I can proudly say that my plugins are usually better quality, more user-friendly, and more reliable than you would find on wordpress.org. Not all the time, but usually!

comment Custom generated WordPress menu using get_pages renders the proper HTML but doesn't display all elements
Which menu is getting cut off? At the top, "Partners" contains "Resellers" which contains three children, so you have at least a 3-deep menu working. If you believe it is a CSS issue, try looking for the menus that do not appear in the source code. If CSS is hiding them, they will still show up in the source.

If you are using get_pages, you probably want to specify 'nopaging' => true in your arguments. Or you can specify posts_per_page to increase the allowed number of items returned. If that's not it, you'll want to show some code.

comment How to get the input of a TinyMCE editor when using on the front-end?
It took a long time to find an answer for this. I also needed a way to set the content. In case anyone else also needs a way to set content, here is a Gist of both (get/set) functions: gist.github.com/RadGH/523bed274f307830752c. This also works with custom wp_editor IDs, not just the default.

comment Order by optional meta key?
That would work and I did consider it. I just expected there to be support for missing meta keys. And this key applies to many post types. And there are already pages. I would have to fill the gaps when the plugin is activated, which I guess isn't a terrible idea since it is a custom meta key after all. It does feel a bit unecessary though.

comment Order by optional meta key?
Wow that's a lot of code to get this to work! It's not quite right though (radleygh.com/images/chrome_2014-080-15-55-54-79.png). I'll have to debug this more next week, I'm leaving right now. Thanks though! (It looks like an edit was made while i was testing, it may be fixed, but I can't check yet!)

@Howdy_McGee I just hope I don't have to hack it. I'd like to learn the proper way :)

comment Order by optional meta key?
@codearachnid Yes, a custom sticky feature although from the dashboard they are the same. All the sorting would do is either put all featured posts first, or last, but not exclude non-featured posts.

comment Why won't draft listings appear for non-admins?
To circumvent the issue in my last comment, I used $wpdb to look up the ID of the post by the slug, then did a query for the post ID directly.

comment Why won't draft listings appear for non-admins?
Yeah it seems to be a particular condition where you search by post name (slug). It does work if I specify the ID, and I may need to change the entire draft mode of this plugin if I can't find a way around that.
