comment WP_Tax_Query with post_tag not working
Yeah, I don't think that WP_Tax_Query() is intended for that purpose. As far as I can tell, you can't pass a WP_Tax_Query() object in as parameter to a WP_Query--it just expects an array, as you have now. So that could be why it was being stripped. I've previously only used the WP_Tax_Query class to build actual SQL clauses. Pretty sure that's what it's used for internally.

comment HTTPS page link in menu
@Binod Not sure why it would have a negative affect on SEO. I doubt that search engines track how long a particular 301 has been in place, or how often its used. But I could be wrong.

Hrm. Ask him to try curl rather than wget and see what the result is. WordPress will try curl, streams, and (possibly) fsockopen for all of its http requests.

comment Adding admin-ajax.php to the frontend. Good or bad idea?
Thanks, Chris! All valid points. The biggest thing you helped me realize is that, though I wasn't thinking of this as a "core hack" (since I was adding, not modifying a file), it really is since it depends on other functionality in core that may change. Not too much different from any other plugin (which may also die after changes in core functionality), but definitely philosophically different. Thanks for the thoughts!

Great idea! It's one of those things that, after you hear it, you think "that's so simple and obvious!" Thanks.
