comment What would cause the 'wp' action to fire twice per page (but only once per post) in Firefox only?
Thanks for the suggestion. Some threads seem to suggest Firebug is at the cause of it. Others that it has to do with charset encoding causing FF to do a double load (though that wouldn't explain why the request is for a different page)

comment Why is jquery-ui-core enqueueing in my footer instead of the header?
Interestingly, as soon as I wp_enqueue_script() some other (custom) script and mark jquery-ui-core as a dependency, jquery-ui-core is popped to the header!

Thanks, Christopher. The missing link for me was wp-includes/script-loader.php. That's some good info there. You mention that it's being registered to enqueue in the footer, but where do you see that? I'm looking for wp_register_script() there but only see direct calls on the $scripts object.

comment Memory usage when querying users
Not that I'm a proponent of direct DB access, but if you're running into extreme memory situations, would that be a solution for you? get_users() will cache each "gotten" user in RAM; if you have a buttload of users, this will eat a ton of RAM. You might bypass this with a direct DB query.

comment Detection of theme being used
The bigger question here is why you would need this information. I have the suspicion that your need to get the current theme may be due to some other, possibly non-standard, approach that could probably be done a lot easier the "WordPress way". Care to elaborate?

comment What's the difference between get_the_time and get_the_date?
The real question for me is why is the template tag called "the_time()" but the "get" version is "get_the_date()"!?

comment Can I attach a document (eg: PDF) but have a JPEG as a thumbnail?
It will be a generated image in most cases. I'm totally cool with it being a separate image that is created manually (outside WP) and uploaded separately.

please if you have the time, post your other solution. This is not just for me, but for future seekers who come upon this thread. Appreciate you giving back to the community.

@helenhousandi well, the plugin appears to be broken in WP 3.2.1, but there's a lot of good code in there that might be salvageable. I'll post back if I write a plugin

+1 for suggesting a completely out-of-the-box way to handle this. It is, in fact, an approach I have been considering in the absence of other options. The downvote was probably because your answer seems to indicate that I should hard-code the URLs with HTML, but this is not necessary, since the Insert Image or Insert Media buttons will do all that for you.
