comment How can I safely use $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] to avoid XSS?
So in this case, why would you recommend esc_attr on $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']? @TheDeadMedic

@TheDeadMedic Why use esc_attr over esc_url?

@TheDeadMedic Can you explain a little bit more? Everything that I've read says that esc_attr is not for URLs.

@s_ha_dum The question is about esc_url() which is a WordPress specific function.

@s_ha_dum That doesn't really help answer the question. I have thought things through, and in this case, I do need to access the $_SERVER variables. The question is how to do so safely.

I'm using it to build another URL to share the current page on other sites such as twitter. So the final URL is being used in an href.

comment How should I structure a WP website project using git and updating from WP dashboard?
Very good points. I've got one whole site stack set up using git with submodules and it's a big pain in the ass. I guess I'm wondering if there is a less tightly controlled way to still take advantage of Git, but to also take advantage of the native updates to save myself some legwork. I'm a one man team at the moment, so I'm basically just trying to set up sites as efficiently as possible.

comment Why won't Wordpress on localhost find updates?
I might try that, but given that I've been using WAMP for three years with no problems, and that I'm not even sure that this Wordpress thing has anything to do with WAMP, I'd like to explore other soultions first.

The .dll is there. I also checked the file permissions on the .dll, and they're fine.
