comment Wordpress Disquis Comments Not Showing Profile Picture
That's not really possible, the whole point of things like disqus is that it's comments hosted by disqus, the same way facebook comments work etc

comment Wordpress Disquis Comments Not Showing Profile Picture
Avatars in WordPress are powered by gravatar, they're not stored in WordPress. Since Disqus doesn't come with Gravatar support, their official docs say the user has to create an account with Disqus, claim those comments as their own, and upload an avatar to Disqus. Then you will get your avatars. However, Gravatar is a 3rd party service, and so is Disqus, you need Gravatar/Disqus expertise to solve this, not WordPress expertise

comment Wordpress Disquis Comments Not Showing Profile Picture
Then why is disqus running on your website, and your question is talking about disqus comments? Disqus comments are not WordPress comments, and the missing avatars are because those users do not have Disqus avatars. Your WordPress users are not the same, and are using gravatar to grab avatars via their emails, they're two totally separate systems

comment Wordpress Disquis Comments Not Showing Profile Picture
Those users don't have avatars on disqus, remember those are not WordPress comments, they're loaded from Disqus. This is a disqus problem, not a WordPress problem

comment Get option saved by another theme
Another site in the same multisite install? Can you provide some context as to why you need this and what you're trying to do with it? What have you tried so far?

comment What is a good robots.txt?
It would be better practice to set an authors role to subscriber, instead of deleting all their content and jumping through loops for SEO purposes

comment Best practice for adding posts in bulk
We prefer precise/specific questions rather than vague ones, it's a Q&A site not a discussion forum, you need to be able to mark an answer as correct. If you need to ask multiple questions, you can create multiple questions

rewrote the question so it's to the point and isn't confusing. It was actually 2 questions were the first one was irrelevant

comment Best practice for adding posts in bulk
It is very tempting to edit this question down to these 9 words: "How do I bulk create posts from a csv?"

comment Site forces HTTPS and is inaccessable
I'd think you'd want to fix the admin area not using https but the frontend using it, either way your site is giving a connection refused, not an invalid certificate, so this is hosting issue, as it's being refused before it even reaches WordPress

comment Database Linking From MyPHPadmin
As a sidenote, you already have the ability to add multiple users, and have multiple users logged in at once, there's an entire section for it in the admin area

comment How to do query_posts on tags pages
Never use query_posts, it's bad practice with real and significant practical problems. query_posts doesn't modify the query, it replaces it with an entirely new one. Use the pre_get_posts filter instead if you need to modify the query WordPress uses, or WP_Query if you want to make a completely new query
