comment Static front page with recent posts pagination
Do I need to do the $temp = $wp_query replacements? Should I be using query_posts? I tried this with front-page.php and I can't get it to work. I can't just use index.php because the $recent_args in my code is the query I'm trying to use for the front page. Thanks.

It turns out that the Jetpack stats module is the reason for it working when I'm logged in, but if I'm going about this the wrong way, please let me know.

comment Static front page with recent posts pagination
Yes, that's why I think I'm doing it wrong. I modeled it after the Showcase template from the twentyeleven theme. I didn't know how to redirect the home page to a page template to use the custom loops I wanted to use.

comment Posts archive index pagination in a static page custom query
Should the $wp_query = $temp; code go before or after the pagination code?

comment Notices when submitting custom post type from front-end
Thanks, however the extra comma isn't the issue. That is valid in a PHP array. I've figured it out, and will post back after I've given others a chance to answer.

comment How to handle support for a non-technical client
I suppose there isn't one right answer, but it would be helpful to know the different ways people handle this.

comment Should all plugins be encapsulated in a Class?
@kaiser, I assume @hakre is referring to the if( ! class_exists ) line you have at the beginning?

Notepad++ or gVim should be able to open the file for you, if you don't need a code solution.

I emailed, and they responded already indicating that they would re-categorize my site as "travel".

Hmm, it seems like you are required to be a paid customer to use the site lookup tool. I checked over at webmasters and found this question I guess my only option is to send an email to their 'suggest' alias.

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)

comment Making a parent directory writable by the server
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.

comment Issue with using .htaccess to redirect feedburner feed
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.
