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 JWPlayer Not Working with Carton Theme
I'm unfamiliar with the Carton theme, where can I find it? What did the JWPlayer support say when you contacted them?

comment get_posts query matches too many results
So these are not of your own design, but of another plugin you did not write? Just because it's a custom post type doesn't mean the post meta has to be a serialised PHP data value

comment get_posts query matches too many results
Ah, = will never return what you expect because you're comparing and searching through PHP serialised strings, not raw values. Can I ask why you're not just storing the values rather than storing serialised data structures?

comment Get post ids from WP_Query?
Your wp_reset_postdata should be inside not outside the if statement, otherwise you might reset post data when it hasn't been changed

comment get_posts query matches too many results
Your comment on an answer implies that one or more of your meta values is not numeric, but is a serialised string. Can you confirm what the expected value of funds_id is in full and what data type it has? e.g. array, string, object, boolean, number, etc

comment get_posts query matches too many results
'compare' => 'LIKE', note that 116 is 'like' 11687 as in they are similar

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
