comment Biblatex: 2 custom fields, only one is working
@StefanvanderWalt, Actually you do can create new, custom fields by playing with the data models (see §4.5.3 of the manual) instead of remapping it to the official custom ones (user[a-f] etc.). There were a typo in Guido's answer (filed instead of field). Perhaps if you try now? I just ran it with my MWE, only changing where I used usera to the new mynote field with no apparent problem. I insist that his is the correct answer because it addresses more general usage and makes use of the full power of biblatex+biber.

comment always upright parenthesises and brackets
embrac does not affect brackets in math mode (since v0.5, according to the documentation). As per egreg's comment to How to get upright parentheses in the whole document?, there probably isn't a perfect solution to that. However, jfbu's answer to that question does try to achieve it.

comment unnumbered endnotes referenced by page and extract
Hi @cslstr, and thanks for the great answer!! It's indeed a very odd approach; while reading it I only looked for notes on statements that particularly interested me (it was actually very annoying with all those shorthands). But I think it suited the book: it's a biography with both casual and academic potential readers in sight.

Hey @jon, that's absolutely true, I just thought it worth mentioning a poor man's alternative :)

comment How to include price in bibliography?
using biber as backend, you could also just remap the price field to addendum with \DeclareSourcemap (with something like \DeclareSourcemap{\maps[datatype=bibtex]{\map{\step[fieldsource=price,fieldset=‌​addendum,origfieldval]}}})

comment How to change the title alignment just for the appendix sections?
Welcome to TeX.SX! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

comment Possible ways to format a specific century in LaTeX?
+1 for the separation between content and format. But it would be better to have it in LaTeX commands instead of TeX primitives (although \romannumeral is unavoidable): \newcommand{\century}[1]{\textsc{\romannumeral #1}\textsuperscript{o}~\centuryname}.

comment How do I edit a cover page for my thesis like this template?
Pedro, the minimal working example is very important here, since we don't know the class you're loading -- e.g., if you're working with the abntex2 bundle, you should redefine the \imprimircapa macro.

comment XeLaTeX and Biber/BibLaTeX: switching font for cyrillic references
I'd kindly advise you to use the same font thoroughly your document, for the sake of consistent typography (and Linux Libertine is a great option fot this). But if you want XeTeX to automatically change the font according to the unicode block, check the ucharclasses package. (See also Switching languages for citations according to the bibentry's “hyphenation” field)

comment Biblatex: First citation as full reference and following citations ibid or - when interrupted - short citation
Indeed. What you need is something that behaves like verbose-ibib as suggested by Bernard, but that falls back to authoryear-ibid. I think you should look in both .cbx files to see how they define the cite bibmacro.

See the authoryear-ibib and the authoryear-icomp styles.

comment Biblatex citation and bibliography misbehaving in Texmaker - help!
Mike, your file compile almost fine here (I get an error in \maketitle, absolutely unrelated to biblatex). Try to run a very simple biblatex example file (like the one in this answer) to check if there's anything wrong with your installation (at first it sounded like biber and biblatex versions didn't match, now it seems you have a broken biblatex installation). Also, try to make your example more minimal as suggested in our MWE guide, it helps a lot in troubleshooting.

BTW, sometimes after a failed biber pass, you might need to delete the ...\Temp\par-<hex-encoded-username> directory. See this answer (as well as §4.1 of biber's documentation)

comment Biblatex citation and bibliography misbehaving in Texmaker - help!
Apparently, the version of biblatex and Biber do not match. Try deleting the temporary files (.aux, .bbl etc.); if that does not help, update your distribution. I'd also recommend you to try and create a really minimal working example (MWE), which helps at locating the issue (e.g., your example files don't show how your bib entries are, or how your are calling them.)

comment Biblatex citation and bibliography misbehaving in Texmaker - help!
Welcome to TeX.SX! How are you citing? In text citations are supposed to be made via \textcite. There's also an \autocite command, which in authoryear style is of the “(Author, Year)” form. Take a look at the examples from the biblatex documentation.

comment Improvements on table of contents in classicthesis
@Pouya, classicthesis redefines \chapter in a way that if sets the toc entry (\chapter's optional argument) in \spacedlowsmallcaps, which, among other (typographically beautiful) things, issues \MakeTextLowercase. Try to redefine it to \renewcommand\Chap[2][]{\oldchap[#1]{#2}}
