I've an eclectic background as a developer and a history of wearing many hats.

I currently work as an IT consultant typically working on integration projects for 'Wall Street' firms. I'm also the firm's in-house web developer and server admin, responsible for our internal web applications.

As an ad hoc WordPress Codex editor, I help to improve the API documentation, as I'm able. I'm willing to make edits suggested by others too bashful to do so themselves.

You can contact me through my Google Plus Profile - look for the 'Send an Email' link on the lower right hand side of the main panel.

comment Page cache for categories not updating with W3 Total Cache
hard refresh on the browser? Depending on the browser involved, it would require manually clearing the cache to get the browser to fetch the page from the server, rather than pulling it from the local cache on disk. There's also potentially caching proxy servers that might exist between you and the server - that could also come into play - which could be the case in a corporate setting.

That product does have a valid use-case -- staging content and then pushing it live. Unfortunately that's not the problem I'm concerned with. Checking back to the OP, it's unclear which use case he's dealing with - so it might be the perfect solution for their shop.

comment Wordpress database synch between dev and prod
My use case - adding functionality while production adds content. Quote: "The following items are currently unsupported: Settings (core and plugin settings, unless they opt-in to RAMP)" 99.99% of theme and plugin options and settings won't migrate. Without code changes on production, custom post-types won't migrate. Forget about adding custom tables and their data.

comment List page for custom post type?
Note that if you've named your custom post type post-typename instead of post_typename, it won't work. The hyphen (-) in template names separates the properties that map to the template file, and custom type names that include a hyphen break the mapping.
