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 Mass check a certain box in an option panel for 3000+ WooCommerce products?
There's a chance. It depends on how the option is implemented. If you know how the value is stored, it's possible to write a script to update each of your products so that the checkbox is enabled.

Did you check for the existence of a filter on 'pre_get_posts' which might override your args settings?

you should mark chip's answer as accepted -- that way people will know you're not still looking for one when they scan the list of questions.

btw - if you're primarily interested in preventing wp from stripping out certain tags, there filters for that. See: wpsnipp.com/index.php/functions-php/… for one.

@toscho - You're half right. As for the rest, I took it as a challenge (and penance for jumping the gun with my comment) to figure out the rest.

Or the single template for the OP's 'venue_content' could simply contain the line echo apply_filters( 'the_content', $post->post_content );

comment How to Create Export/Import Functionality for Plugin
Not really. Json is a protocol for converting program data into text. So is XML, which is used by WP's built-in import / export functionality. Php supports 'serialize' which also does the same thing. The real trick is to get the data you read and converted from yaml or XML or CSV or whatever format, back into WP as a post -- which requires setting up a a wp_insert_post() call for each one -- including adding all the related post meta, etc. If you don't use the standard XML import, you'll have to custom code your import and export process.

comment TinyMCE Plugin Parameter
TinyMCE is a separate project that WordPress uses. It's sometimes difficult to determine if the question is best asked here, or is 'off topic.' Depends on the degree of integration, I suppose. This one is more on the 'off topic' side, as you're not asking how to integrate. You can find each plugin easily by searching TinyMCE plugin [name] - for example: tinymce.com/tryit/tab_focus.php

comment How to add terms to taxonomy with wp_insert_terms?
It doesn't make any difference that you have a custom post type. @PaulB - with respect, if you don't understand this enough to know that the sample code would be put into a larger stand-alone php script or custom plugin, you're much better off buying the commercial plugin I linked. Saving 44 EUR can't be worth the time it would take you to figure this out - never mind the other features you'd be able to use in the future.
