oh, thanks! I thought that other answer did the job for you, though.

comment URL Rewrite + Page + Custom Post Type = Unusual Redirect
WordPress automatically redirects to whatever the permalink is. Go to the edit page of one of that post type and see if it matches what the url is redirected to.

comment Difference between a theme and a plugin?
A bit late but what about custom clauses and queries. Would those be part of the theme or a plugin?

comment How would you require and automatically download dependent plugins?
Okay, you make a good point. So I should air on the side of caution and ask the use to install the plugin. I would prefer a more seamless approach and not have the user worry about dependencies. I also thought about just bundling in the other plugin but then it wouldn't get updated if I did so.

comment Using %postname% tag with a Custom Permastruct creates 400 Bad Request Errors from the server
@bueltge Yeah. Using any of my own custom tags works no problem. Using %postname% at the end with a single word works but any other slug gives me the error illustrated above.

comment What are some examples of well-written plugins that exemplify wordpress plugin best practices?
Seconded. Full of nice tips an tricks. Just got this last week and learned so much more than what you can scrounge around the net and then some.

Instead of putting functions in functions, try using a class instead.

comment Best practices for complex taxonomies
I think he means if you have a taxonomy term tree and you select a child, do you also select all the ancestors?

comment Using %postname% tag with a Custom Permastruct creates 400 Bad Request Errors from the server
Thanks for the suggestion. I did some rejiggering and as I suspected, for some reason the problem was using the built in %postname% tag. I removed it and created my own custom tag to take its place and low and behold the 400 errors went away. I have no clue why using %postname% made things go wonky, though. Maybe mixing my custom tags with %postname% is conflicting somewhere, I don't know.

comment Using %postname% tag with a Custom Permastruct creates 400 Bad Request Errors from the server
@TheDeadMedic. I posted the info you wanted. Hopefully that helps. I'm still pretty new with rewrite rules and how WordPress handles them. For some reason, I think the problem is with the %postname% tag because for whatever reason, whatever link I give, the server redirects to a URL with '%postname%' at the end of it. That's a big tip off for me but I don't know what it means.

Question, Jan: when something is crossed out in red, what does that mean exactly?

comment Inserting Taxonomy Terms During a Plugin Activation?
Oh so the insert didn't work because the taxonomies didn't exist yet. Gonna try this when I get home from work

comment Custom Permalinks for Custom post Type Archives?
That takes care of the rewrite but doesn't handle the actual creation of permalinks.
