comment Alternative to query_posts for main loop?
Done: codex.wordpress.org/Plugin_API/Filter_Reference/request and major cleanup codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/query_posts. I would appreciate if you might check to make sure I haven't made any blunders.

comment As soon as I add a custom query_var using the filter, my pages point to an archive page - why?
Okay, will do. If I get a solution that I can document, I'll follow up here for anyone else that might run into the situation. It's got to be SOMETHING.

comment Alternative to query_posts for main loop?
Thanks scribu, this is exactly what I was hoping to learn, and straight from the source, too! I'd like to update that Codex entry at some point since it seems a little scattered. I wonder whether it makes sense to include this code snippet you just included as well? Rarst's cautions are also well advised!

Thanks for checking. That's what I figured as well, which is why I'm posting this question. Can anyone think of what is breaking this code? Just from your experience?

I've read this and all other posts on this SE and have followed them all to the letter and my questions still remain.

comment Complex widget form UI - examples and best practices
Thanks to all who contributed, though I had rather hoped more people would get involved (I suppose a larger bounty might have done the trick - alas for my failing rep). I ended up selecting the Thickbox alternative, simply because in the end it provided the most options for keeping each section "light" and "to the point" while still accommodating a nearly unlimited number of options if necessary. Thanks again to everyone and happy 'Pressing

comment WordPress built-in method to extract array of term IDs?
So I rolled my own map in the meantime; still would love to know if there's an "official" way of doing things (for forward-compatibility and all that). Here's the map, using a closure (PHP 5.3+) $term_ids = array_map(function($a){return $a->term_id;}, get_the_terms($post->ID, TAXONOMY_NAME)); You could of course do this with create_function instead: $term_ids = array_map(create_function('$a','return $a->term_id;'), get_the_terms($post->ID, TAXONOMY_NAME)); for php 4+. Still, if there's a better way, I'd love to hear it!

Interesting, thanks for this B. I was really hoping to see what can be done within the native widget dialog though, rather than resorting to a jQuery overlay. This is a great option though and one I'll keep in mind. Thanks for that!
