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 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.

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.

comment How can I include the parent menu item label in page title?
I don't believe that is part of WordPress, quick google search looks like it is part of the All in One SEO pack plugin. You can probably grab that label and title from post meta, but you'll have to find out what the meta names are (if you inspect the input elements, I bet the names are the same as the post meta name). After you get the name you can retrieve the label with $label = get_post_meta( $post->post_parent, 'seo_pack_label', true );. Note the seo_pack_label needs to be changed, I made that up.

comment How can I unhook this action that was added via $this?
That should have been obvious... I swear that's the one combination I didn't try. This worked for me though, thank you! I'll accept the answer in 3 minutes... Working code: remove_action('register_form', array( Theme_My_Login_Custom_Passwords::get_object(), 'password_fields' ) );
