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 wp_head is too slow
Try adding echo $tag: to the plugin.php file that you mentioned, temporarily. Run the page and see if there is an action that is running an abnormal amount of times (200+). Or add some echos throughout your theme (temporarily, again) and see which ones take awhile to appear. If you can narrow it down to a function or action name, you should be able to find it.

comment add a function to submit options.php
The settings-updated query is added after the form has submitted, in a new request. The process: form is submitted, server handles the data, browser is redirected to ?settings-updated=1. This is so that pressing F5 doesn't submit the information again, which might cause problems. This method should be avoided or, at the very least, used carefully. Also mind that if 'settings-updated' is set, the form data you submitted will NOT be present (as I said, it's a new request following a redirect).

comment Get parent id by term id
If only the ID is needed (and not term object), modify line #2 to: $termParent = $term ? $term->parent : false;. This will either give you the parent ID, or false. Not the object. Also saves a query.

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.

comment Custom generated WordPress menu using get_pages renders the proper HTML but doesn't display all elements
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.
