comment How to delete site without login info?
@Paige so you're saying your site is hosted on wordpress.com? You might be confusing WordPress, the blogging platform, which this site is about, and wordpress.com, a company that hosts WordPress sites.

comment How to delete site without login info?
Is your organization still paying for this website? If so, contact the webhost and ask for your password and/or indicate you want to cancel your service.

comment Best practice for pulling in data from simple 3rd party API
Wouldn't putting it in a theme's function file make it specific to that theme? That seems like a really really bad idea.

comment Pass original URL through after login redirect
You could pass the URL as a 'GET' variable, but you'd have to be careful to escape the URL correctly. My preference (not necessarily the best idea) is to pass the MIME-encode of the URL as a GET variable, so you don't have to worry about proper escaping.

comment Home page randomly redirects to another page
Quoting wordpress.org/plugins/buddypress-login-redirect "Version: 2.2 Allows to decide buddypress website admins where their users should land after log in." Have you confirmed that this setting is turned off?

comment Import wordpress mysql database to unknown server / domain
Right. I'm saying just make up a domain name and a path and then include customer-specific scripts that rewrite the domain and name to the correct values for that customer.

comment Custom shortcode with dynamic rewrite
Here's a basic plugin I wrote that is unlikely to be helpful: github.com/barrycarter/bcapps/blob/master/BCINFO3/sites/…

comment Import wordpress mysql database to unknown server / domain
Suggestion: pretend the new domain is example.com (or something) and include scripts that update example.com to the users actual installation?

comment Custom shortcode with dynamic rewrite
So you haven't written the function that processes the shortcode? Something like "THIS_PAGE_URL/one" and so on?

comment Custom shortcode with dynamic rewrite
Is it private? If not, could you put it online on github or something? That would even allow people to help you by directly editing your code.

comment Custom shortcode with dynamic rewrite
If your code is open source, could you give us a link? Are you saying you want 'one' and 'two' to be passed as GET parameters to a PHP script or Wordpress document, but the same PHP script/Word document each time? Do you know how to read the GET parameters in a WordPress plugin?

comment Import wordpress mysql database to unknown server / domain
If you don't know where you're moving the wordpress installation to, why do you want to migrate it? Give us a little more detail, please?

comment Generate image size, based on the image-orientation
Can you write a plugin that wraps add_image_size() and takes orientation as a parameter? I can't imagine that WP could figure out orientation by itself?

comment Export/Import xml
How do you split the XML into smaller chunks? A section of an XML file is not itself an XML file.

comment Wordpress search not able to find text in url
I agree, but when I search for North Carolina, many pages show up. When I search for "masters in embedded" (no quotes), only one page comes up. Are you seeing different results?

comment Export/Import xml
The special characters in the Spanish language (n tilde, grave/acute accents) might be the issue. You mention using mysqldump (which is the way I'd do it) and "changing all prefixes". What does that last part mean? Why do you need to change prefixes? Do you mean site name prefixes?

comment How can I remove page slug for all pagings?
You could edit the WP database directly (after backing it up) if you can't find a plugin.

comment Generate image size, based on the image-orientation
Do you want to do this automatically in WP, or can you use an external program and then upload the images? If you can use an external program, just determine orientation and convert to just the 4 images you need. You could also convert on the fly, but that might become CPU intensive if you get a lot of traffic.
