comment Do you have to have command line access to use Subversion with Wordpress?
In order to follow the WP codex directions for installing/upgrading via SVN, you must have it on the same server. I suppose if you have access to another server where you could checkout WP core via SVN, and then your IT dept would allow an rsync between that SVN checkout and the web server, you may be able to get it to work. But if you can't get shell access, I doubt you would be able to setup an rsync for the files. Can the IT department configure SVN and be responsible for running the upgrade? As in you file a ticket with them, and they run the svn sw command when it's time to upgrade?

comment When should you use WP_Query vs query_posts() vs get_posts()?
@Rarst I was referring to this section in the Codex for query_posts however, I may be mistaken regarding the effect on performance. Unless using WP_Query in your template file will also have the same result (i.e. throwing away your query, and re-executing)

I would recommend only using 777 as a last resort, try 755 on the uploads directory first.

comment When should you use WP_Query vs query_posts() vs get_posts()?
I believe that query_posts is also less efficient in that it will run additional queries, when if you use only WP_Query for your main loop, it will only run the query you choose in WP_Query.

Moved feedburner section to the top. Please allow this edit otherwise the code doesn't work if someone is to try it.

Removed the RewriteCond line that was causing issues on my server. See SeanLee's comment on the answer about removing it.

Actually, this doesn't work. You have to move the last RewriteCond and RewriteRule to be above the RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L] line. The article specifically says it has to be above the regular WP permalink section.

comment Issue with using .htaccess to redirect feedburner feed
duh, I wasn't redirecting the comments feed, so I think I glossed over that part. Thanks! Also, the only reason everything was separated out in my .htaccess is due to allowing WordPress up add in its own rules and the download monitor, and I just copied in the feedburner code. Yours is definitely cleaner.

Ok, I used your version, and I can't get it to work, as in now none of the feed links redirect to FeedBurner. I will rephrase my question above.

comment Issue with using .htaccess to redirect feedburner feed
So, are you saying that the line: RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/?feed.* [NC] is not required? It seems to work when I remove that line, but didn't understand why that line would be in the instructions.
