comment pre_get_posts Tax Query not working for custom author page
Actually, this question is a duplicate of How to fix pagination for custom loops. The issue is the same, and the resolution is the same. The answer to the linked question also addresses the appropriate use of pre_get_posts to modify the main query.

comment How Can I Change The Tax Query For The Main Loop For Taxonomy Archives?
I don't know if it makes a difference or not, but pre_get_posts is an action, not a filter. You could try using add_action(), and remove the return $query. I don't think it will make a difference, but worth a try?

comment How to use/retrieve an options array, with defaults, using get_option()
As-written, this question seeks primarily opinion-based answers. It might be helpful to rewrite the question in terms of how to use/retrieve an options array, with defaults, using get_option().

Please edit your question to clarify how it is specific to WordPress, rather than merely taking place in its context.

comment WordPress Terminology Options Vs. Settings
While the question regarding the difference in WordPress terminology between settings and options is valid, asking which term to use for a settings/options page label in the admin menu is primarily opinion-based.

I think it is, yes. But I'm still waiting for a response to my comment above, so that I can post it as the correct answer.

Have you tried changing it to the_content()? If so: what happened? Did it work?

comment Custom Post Types strange pagination problem
Or just use archive-{post-type}.php, and not worry about custom-loop pagination issues.

comment How to register and enqueue JavaScript files without breaking plugin dependencies?
Always use core-bundled scripts, rather than custom versions of those scripts. Core, Themes, and Plugins all rely on the assumption that the core-bundled version of a script will be registered and available to be enqueued.

In content.php, do you see the_excerpt() being called?

The archive.php code you posted doesn't call either the_content() or the_excerpt(). You probably need to look in content.php, which is included in archive.php via get_template_part( 'content' ).

comment Wordpress 3.8.3. custom theme - sliders won't load js/css files
Yes. Always use core-bundled scripts; especially jQuery - and especially when you're experiencing problems getting jQuery-related scripts to work properly.

comment Wordpress 3.8.3. custom theme - sliders won't load js/css files
Without code, we have no way to help you. How is jQuery 1.9.3 loaded, when WordPress uses version 1.10 (in WordPress 3.8)?

What have you tried so far? What relevant template files does your Theme include?
