comment Query the database after get_header() has been included
From what i've read here (codex.wordpress.org/… ) you are doing it right: you use the $wpdb object. Since you are using custom tables, there isn't much you can reuse from the wordpress querying methods.

comment List custom taxonomies associated to an author's posts
Hello Shazzad, Thank you it works quite nicely, except that if a tag has been used in 2 posts, it will appear twice. But you've sent me in the right direction, so i'll pick this up as the right answer.

comment different single.php for different page templates
It appears to me that you need to know what was the visitor coming from before landing on a specific page. You could use $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'] for that, but it's not 100% reliable as some browsers do not send the required header (see: stackoverflow.com/questions/165975/determining-referer-in-php ). Or you could, on the link leading to the template, add a query var that you can then use to identify the origin. For example: ?origin=page-second and on the page $_GET['origin'] == 'page-second' ...

comment Which filter affects the 'entry-title' post class
This code pertains to a theme, not the core wordpress. It's completely okay to modify the theme to suits your needs. Your changes won't be erased with the next wordpress update.

comment Which filter affects the 'entry-title' post class
yes. Note that if this is for a specific custom post type, you can duplicate content.php and name the new file content-{custom_post_type_name}.php so that change only affects the relevant items. See the Wordpress Template Hierarchy to understand how Wordpress picks which theme file to use for rendering your content: codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy

comment How to display value of custom fields in page
it is indeed the get_post_meta() function, and if you are calling it inside the loop, it should work... Unless you're not using the right custom field name. They often come with a prefix if they are implemented via a plugin like meta-box. Can you post the code how you declare your custom fields? A solution would be to open the wp_postmeta table in PhpMyAdmin and search the column meta_key for LIKE %...% and specify "subtitle" as meta_key value. You will see exactly under what name Wordpress is storing your custom field.
