Yep, you probably did. I put it on github too for a twitter user: gist.github.com/Otto42/b79ff5428993fcff45bb

comment remove_action or remove_filter with external classes?
No, plugins_loaded would be the correct place. The wp_loaded action happens after the init action, so if your plugin takes any actions on init (and most do), then you want to initialize the plugin and set it up before that. The plugins_loaded hook is the right place for that construction phase.

comment Can I reuse the Akismet API key used on old version of my website?
If it's not owned by a single person, then it's likely a commercial site, and you need to purchase a key for it. akismet.com/account/upgrade

comment PHP Parse error on WP-CLI, not on web server
You would be better off to find the files in your system using short PHP tags and change them to not do that. Disabling short_open_tag everywhere is recommended for clarity. Short tags are bad practice due to portability, and additionally they don't adhere to the PHP basic coding standard PSR-1.

comment Can I reuse the Akismet API key used on old version of my website?
I don't understand your question then. You should use the key connected to the person who owns the website.

comment How is password strength calculated?
Because different checks use different mechanisms. There is no standard definition of "password strength". Most of the checks are simply invented by the programmer at the time. Also, you should not use the same password on two different sites.

comment Selecting NULL value from the database
Well.. Be careful with empty(). A int of zero is empty. You need to explicitly check for NULL if it's going to be different than zero.

comment Why is $wp_query fetching nothing?
Your query here seems to be named $all_vid, not $wp_query. And the place where you're referencing $wp_query->queried_object will be blank because you're not running WordPress in the normal manner, so there is no queried_object for it to get. Essentially, this code is wrong in multiple ways and it's difficult to understand exactly what it is that you're attempting to do.

comment Plugin installation not possible / FTP credentials in WP-config
Try using "localhost" for the hostname. See if that makes any difference.

comment How would I create a different permalink structure for pages and posts?
No, custom post types can have their own rewrite definitions, set by the register_post_type function.
