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 DB connection error after copying a WordPress Multisite instance to a second location
I also replaced tt with xx so the urls wouldn't be obscured -- you couldn't see the difference between them.

comment DB connection error after copying a WordPress Multisite instance to a second location
That works fine, except if you end up replacing a string in serialized data, such as a widget or theme option, with a string with different length. The serialized data looks like this - s:76:"hxxp://www-dev.example.com/wp-content/uploads/company_logo_swoosh.gif' 's:70:"hxxp://www.example.com/wp-content/uploads/company_logo_swoosh.gif' (note: lengths 76 and 70 no longer correspond to the strings presented - I edited out my site details and didn't keep track of the new character count.) The only solution for that is to manually update the counts - or keep the staging domain length the same.

comment Securing Contact Form 7
As Brady states, Contact Form 7 doesn't run scripts currently. You may just need to create a rule of some sort, such that any action that contains a pattern matching /script/ redirects to a 403 forbidden status message to 'pass' their test. You need to find out what result they expect as the proper result when they test a 'protected' form.

comment Is there any way to draft a revision of a published page or post? What workarounds have you used?
I just tested this plugin on a newly upgraded 3.1.2 install. The process of actually applying the pending revision seems broken. Given the sparsity of the documentation, it's not clear if it's broken in 3.1.2, or if the intended UX is that the approving party must copy-paste the revision into the published post manually. In any case, I'm not pushing this out to my users.
