I'm a fulltime WordPress Developer at Code For The People in the UK. I also build RTS AIs & attend WordPress/design conferences.

Any questions please say hello, I can normally be found in the WPSE chat ( link in the top header ).

comment Page Options Saving But Not Updating In Backend
Also why are you using a global to store $slides rather than just calling get_option? Also if there are no slides your code will generate warnings and notices.

comment Page Options Saving But Not Updating In Backend
Your save code isn't checking if you submitted your form, so it will also run when comments are deleted, posts are trashed, and any other form in the admin panel that has an 'action' parameter. You need to be more specific. Wether this is related to your problem or not I can't say, but it is an issue.

comment Output 'do_settings_sections()' as tabs, not one under the other
If you don't know what to enqueue to make WP tabs function, you can always ask =) It would make for a nice question

comment How do I create a link that links to a page?
Also @kaiser I suspect this person may be completely unaware of the menu GUI and nav menu API, and has manually constructed a menu using HTML markup, hence the confusion

comment How do I create a link that links to a page?
I strongly recommend you look up basic theming. You're working with a Content Management System, not a static website, pages are stored in the database, and you're writing templates/themes for said pages and archives ( note, you're creating what a page in general looks like, not what a specific page looks like ). You need to go backwards and start at the beginning rather than trying to build a penthouse without knowing about foundations. In this case what you're asking for is a navigation menu, if that's not the case you need to explain better

comment Wordpress internally rewrite rule challenge
Also, can you provide more details by what you mean by deep rewrite linking? when you say info/topical/take-a-education what does each part refer to? is topical a random string? a parent post? a taxonomy term?

We have a 1 question per question policy, perhaps you should edit out question 2 and ask it as a separate question. You can always link between the two

comment Multisite - One user allowed access to all sites?
Such a system raises privacy concerns that a parent will be able to access the site of another child they are unrelated to. There are legal concerns in many countries around data protection

comment Next/Previous links in custom taxonomy, where item may belong to multiple terms
Your primary problem here is ambiguity, e.g. if you arrive on a project page, which taxonomy do you use for the next and previous arrows? Keep in mind http is a stateless protocol

comment Change name of existing post status type
It's more that the UI doesn't acknowledge the post statuses, but plugins like edit flow replace those parts. Perhaps installing and activating that plugin or extracting the relevant parts is all you need to do. Post status stuff was slated for a recent version of WordPress ( 3.6 I believe ), but didn't make it as it was much more work than expected

Is there a particular reason you aren't using the add_post_meta function?

comment Change name of existing post status type
A number of admin interfaces are hardcoded to return the default statuses regardless of what you do. The post status system in WordPress is not exactly fully formed and you'll no doubt encounter bugs. Refer to the edit flow plugin for examples of working around this

comment Inconsistent post order using wp_insert_post
There isn't enough information here to answer this, including the full code, and how you're checking the order of posts afterwards, how you're filling in $my_post values, and what your SQL query is

comment Multi-Language is not supporting
Are you talking about the UI controls and menus, or the ability to write the content? What currently prevents you from putting Burmese language content in the post edit box?
