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 How to add terms to taxonomy with wp_insert_terms?
Use a plugin activation hook and add the add_action('init') and insert the terms in the function you write and assign to that hook. Please note, that this is an 'off the cuff' answer, and that I'm not actively coding WordPress at the moment, so I won't be able to follow up with a more complete answer. The cognitive costs of task switching are a bit too high to pay at the moment.

comment What is the correct method for updating post content from a plugin?
Fixed the tinymce links - apparently the site was restructured without page level re-directs.

comment Custom Taxonomy URL
I'm not actively working with WordPress at the moment, so won't be able to take a look at this. You should create a separate question, reference this answer and include more detail of what's not working, and maybe someone else will be able to help. If you do figure out what was wrong, missing or 'not clear' - please comment back here to help the next person.

Seems you have the same issue as this poster: wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/14383/… Had you seen that question? Did the proposed solution not work for you?

What domain mapping solution are you using? i.e. which plugin, if any?

If I had some real data to play with, I could work out the SQL -- lets continue to discuss in chat

comment Order posts by (hierarchical custom) taxonomy terms and term children
Once you have all the leaf nodes, you'd add an outer join to pick up the parent taxons. Calculate column order_term = is_null(parent, child) and order by order_term

comment Order posts by (hierarchical custom) taxonomy terms and term children
First thing - work out the SQL query you'd need to do this. I see a recursive self-join of wp_term_taxonomy in your future. Thinking out loud, the query can only return a list of posts -- and you only want each post to appear once at it's leaf taxon level. Something like this: SO: recursive self join SQL

comment Detail explanation of wordpress database fields and metatag list
I don't think you'll find anything more complete than that. You may find additional detail for some tables, like this answer - but otherwise, you'll have to read the code.

comment How to get userid at wp_logout action hook?
As the OP states 'wp_get_current_user() already returns null if called from within the wp_logout action hook' -- so this won't work.

comment Get multiple db prefix with $wpdb
my reference to the config file was not meant to refer to wp_config.php --> you can use any file in your theme to store this information. You can even store it in a database. I only meant to suggest that you do some more work, on your own, to figure that bit out - rather than just copy what I put there.

comment Get multiple db prefix with $wpdb
I updated my answer. There is no built-in way to tell wordpress to use an alternate prefix for non-native tables.

comment Get multiple db prefix with $wpdb
Yes, I misunderstood the question. BTW: I believe you are not a native English speaker, and I believe that you meant no disrespect by calling me 'dear.' However, the use of the term 'dear' appears patronizing to native speakers of American English. It's particularly disturbing to women, because endearments have historically been used to diminish the authority and respect accorded to women's participation in non-traditional arenas. It would be wise to avoid using endearments in future SE comments.

comment How can I directly upload smartphone videos to blog and comments?
Welcome to WPSE. Please note, as per the FAQ - we do not handle questions: that require professional hands-on involvement: i.e. overly complex and specific things (known as work for me for free) -- while you may get a helpful answer (I hope you do!) I had to down-vote this question.

I noticed the mistake, and fixed it, a moment after I posted the answer. Glad you had figured it out, though.
