comment Nginx + WordPress + HHVM: Why isn't Batcache working? Would Varnish help even more?
According to a Mark Jaquith comment: "HHVM supports APC user cache and Memcache, so if you drop in the object caching backend for one of those (and for Memcache, configure it and have it running), Batcache should just work."

comment Non-permalink custom taxonomy not found
ah that was part of my scrambling around searching for the problem from the register_taxonomy codex: "Better be safe than sorry when registering custom taxonomies for custom post types. Use register_taxonomy_for_object_type() right after the function to interconnect them. Else you could run into minetraps where the post type isn't attached inside filter callback that run during parse_request or pre_get_posts."

comment How to display WordPress User Registration Form in front end of the website?
Thanks @FabienQuatravaux, I've updated the answer to include the last section of the article. There should be no need for an AJAX form - its just a POST form that submits to the wp-login.php?action=register page

comment Download an image from a webpage to the default uploads folder
I had issues with this when it was permissions issue on the images in the uploads directory - they needed to be owned by the server user (e.g. www-data on apache/linux)

comment How do I find the version of WordPress I have from the source code?
though a valid way of finding the version, this is not from the source code, rather its from the output of running the source code.

Certainly your first question 'How does WordPress determine the main PHP file' is answered directly in the main 'Writing a plugin' guide on file headers

comment home_url on IIS missing permalink index.php
Yes - the code does get ugly, which is why I switched to modifying the site address which works much better. I only use it as they do use $is_iis7 in the source of the iis_supports_permalinks function.
