comment How to clear python console in QGIS?
Don't write to the console when trying to debug. Use QgsMessageLog.logMessage("message", "title") to write to the log window.

comment Error with layer.pendingAllAttributesList
QgsMapLayerRegistry is a singleton (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singleton_pattern) i.e there is only one map layer registry, ever, so you access it though instance(). That has nothing to do with what you are getting out of it as a result. instance() returns the instance of QgsMapLayerRegistry. It's a gross pattern but we are stuck with that for now.

comment QGIS Atlas web layer rendering - how can I slow it down?
The answer to that question already answer this one, i.e the OpenLayers plugin doesn't work well with the composer.

comment QGIS 2.4: How to get Atlas to print all features not just the one visible in preview
The top export buttons should export the whole set. The preview button will export a single feature.
