Wordpress website breaking

I have a frustrating issue with a site hosted on Wordpress. Every now and again - and seemingly at random - I will get a message saying "Resource Limit Is Reached - The website is temporarily unable to service your request as it exceeded resource limit. Please try again later" when I try and visit my site or dashboard. [more inside]

Help me with static page problems in Wordpress, please?

I am having a problem with my website, which is entirely run in Wordpress. I have WP set up to use a static home page. I followed the directions for creating a homepage and a page for posts to appear on. But if you look at the fluid page in question, for some reason the entire page is duplicated? I cannot for the life of me figure out what is going on there, I hope someone here can.

Reverse engineering Wordpress functionality

I've been working on making a mirror of a site that we're using for another project. The original site is working fine, but a few of the custom tweaks that the former webmaster made aren't carrying over. One of these is a box on the post creation screen that allows / disallows others to remix (pictured at the link) your work. We're working off of a BuddyPress framework. Any ideas about how to find the template file that's calling this? More details inside... [more inside]

Wordpress / Buddypress question about user roles

I have a Buddypress site set up with all of my contributors set up as Authors. This has worked well, up until this point, where the users want to make groups. However, the Author role doesn't have permission to create groups. I've used several role modifying plugins to try to switch it on, but none of the plugins have this option available. The current plugin I'm using for role moderation (called 'Members') has an option to add in new Wordpress actions to allow/disallow, but I'm not sure what this would be called. Further data about installed plugins, versions, etc. available upon request. For the moment let's say that simply changing all user's roles to something else isn't an option.

please help me hide comments in latest version of WP using a child theme of twenty ten!

I'm creating a web site for a non-profit using WordPress. I know some CSS (and can figure out most of the basics), but I'm using a child theme based on Twenty Ten and one stupid small thing is bugging me: I've turned comments off for posts and pages that don't need them, but I still get the "comments are closed" message. How do I make it go away? [more inside]

Buying a good theme

I'm currently shopping for pay themes for a Wordpress blog. A lot of theme websites have previews for their themes, but are rather limited in their implementation. Are there good review/forum sites for themes that aren't SEO backwash, or is there an effective search method to find sites that use a particular theme? [more inside]

Wordpress Workflow

I'm designing a custom Wordpress theme as part of a project. In addition to the typical Wordpress install, there's also going to be a social media plug-in on top of it (which has already been picked out and installed by another member of the project). This is the most complicated bit of web development that I've done, so I'm curious: what sort of workflow should I set up to make things easy on myself? [more inside]
