comment Underscores theme future maintenance workflow question
Surely then you could answer that there is not " ... a workflow or checklist or general practice etc that is typically used ..." ?

comment Underscores theme future maintenance workflow question
Well I could certainly rephrase the question if there's a particular part that's wrong for this site ... but it's a very important one and not meant to generate opinion ... as developers we need to be responsible for security to some degree so surely there must be some resource or thinking out there as to the best manner to achieve this. I have searched quite a bit but as you can imagine putting the words 'theme' or 'WordPress' along with 'update' into Google generates spurious results. I would appeal to anyone voting close to suggest an alternative place to ask this question.

I know ... thanks. Probably have spent enough time on it already though.

comment Background Updates Not Happening
My hosting company have been digging around and they seem to think it could be a plugin somewhere ... one that I have on all my sites ... so I'll set up a test blank install somewhere and just wait and see if it autoupdates when 3.9.2 comes out.

comment Background Updates Not Happening
Yes I did that on one of the sites and it updated fine ... presumably this would be just to rule something out as a culprit because obviously it's the automatic aspect which is the problem.

Thanks ... I installed that. Didn't see anything amiss. What would it show if there was a problem. It was a list of hooks ... any of these I'd need to check in particular?

comment Q&A lite plugin comments
Note, this is a two year old post so I'm not sure the relevancy of any of this new conversation, but thanks anyway ... however I ended up using question2answer.org which while not a WP plugin, is working well.

comment Is there some way to refator this jQuery wrapper?
Sorry I wasn't fully clear in my question obviously ... I did actually already know how to do this however the part I didn't know ( I now realise, apologies ) was whether or not I could actually REPLACE ALL of the code in my quesiton with ... (from your example) jQuery(document).ready(function(){ ... my code here }); or to put it another way I'm not entirely sure of whether I can replace $(function(){ }); with a no conflict wrapper ... I suppose I'm just confused about all these wrappers and document.ready and self invoking anonymous functions etc as I find them all very similar

Do you know is there any way to have this include taxonomies so that they are private.

comment Associate Posts with individual user - hide from other members
Doesn't WordPress start numbering author ID's from 1? What about author ID = 0 or could WordPress end up using that?

comment Associate Posts with individual user - hide from other members
If I've understood the WP_query page properly then set('author', -1) would display all authors except author id=1 ... so I tried $query->set( 'author_name', 'thisauthordoesnotexist' ); ... which seems to work, but I hope there's a better way of setting wordpress to display no posts. Would you know of one.

It's still returning the page if the user is not logged in. It's like as if '$query->set( 'author', -1 );' is having no effect for some reason.

comment Associate Posts with individual user - hide from other members
No I think you might be understanding me correctly all right and I might have a go at trying to get the above working (thanks for that) but still wouldn't this still leave the individual posts open to anyone who could get the the url. I mean if I know the id of a post is it not possible to view it even if I'm not the owner. As far as I can see we are only limiting whats shown in the query but I'd need the material to be inaccessible to anyone but the originator. Maybe I have a fundamental hole in my WordPress understanding here. I am not very good on security to be honest.

comment Metadata for a taxonomy - is there any WordPress way of doing this?
actually it's been a while since I looked at the way wordpress does that - I don't think it used javascript like that last time I looked at it, thanks for pointing that out to me. As I said above I found I was able to get what I wanted using the advanced custom fields plugin

Actually I found a solution to my problem using the advanced custom fields plugin but I will accept this as it seems a pretty good link.
