comment Stop WordPress from reserving slugs for media items?
The wp_unique_post_slug filter is a great solution, however it can also cause issues if not used carefully. There would still need to be a condition added that checks if the $original_slug variable is unique among the attachment posts to prevent conflicts.

comment How to load a mycred hook from a plugin?
Can you provide the code used in the plugin? Assuming you have activated the plugin and include any files with relevant code in them, the implementation should be the same.

comment Help diagnosing scheduled post problem with transition_post_status
Future posts are published with background scheduled events via wp_cron, so calling a function like var_dump, etc will not be useful for debugging. Instead try using add_option(), wp_mail(), or XDebug bookmarks: jetbrains.com/phpstorm/help/configuring-xdebug.html

comment Help diagnosing scheduled post problem with transition_post_status
The transition_post_status hook fires after the post transition from future to publish has occurred, and calling wp_die() will not display 'STOP' for scheduled posts, but instead will just prevent the remaining actions in wp_transition_post_status from being processed.

In version 1.1 of the JSON REST API custom post type endpoints have to be registered manually. wp-api.org/guides/extending.html#registering-your-endpoints Improving this process is one of the enhancements we are making to the upcoming release of the plugin.

@cybmeta The question is regarding the WP REST API, a "feature plugin" to bring a JSON-based REST API to WordPress core.

comment Place page title in header?
the_title is intended to only be used within the loop. To get the title of a post outside of the loop use get_the_title( $post->ID )
