comment How to get post content by calling ajax?
@fischi I missed the fact they had created a custom endpoint and I had interpreted the question to mean they had successfully implemented the ajax part (using the solution you posted) and simply needed to retrieve post content from an ID.

comment When to use WP_query(), query_posts() and pre_get_posts
@Privateer Ah, my apologies, seemed to have confused myself. You are right (but you would not be able to use any functions which refer to the global $post e.g. the_title(), the_content()).

@Privateer - sorry, typo, WP_Query::the_post(), see: github.com/WordPress/WordPress/blob/…

@Privateer Not so, WP_Query::get_posts() sets global $post;

comment Disable / Deregister all JS from all plugins
This does keep the core scripts/styles - however it will not remove anything registered (or enqueued directly) after wp_enqueue_scripts.

Sounds like you're using a plug-in to edit from the front-end, in which case I'd recommend asking the author of that plug-in.

comment Wordpress sending emails continuously. How to stop it?
I suspect the php process is long dead but that while it was alive it filled up your e-mail server with a very long queue. You could try to kill the e-mail server. If you don't know how do that, I'd recommended contacting your host. Though I suspect (hope) the e-mails would dry up before you would get a response...
