Dream On!

People have to be satisfied with attainable dream. If you’re greedy with unattainable dreams, you’ll only get hurt. It will only leaves you with heartburn. That’s why it is foolish.

However foolish passion can have potential. That passion sometimes causes miracles. Of course, that’s very rare. it usually end in failure. But it’s also sad if you’re afraid and you give up. Before you even try it out.

First, do what you want instead of what you can. You only live once. But in some cases, we need to understand that certain dream is just won’t work. There’s no such thing as unlimited potential. Your burning passion will burn out eventually.

Even when you may not achieve the dream. Getting close gives you the change to be happy.

Tungdo did something interesting.

But I’m not interested. It was like building bbpress theme, or buddypress theme.

I think it’s something wp core need to do. If wp.com use wp.org to steal post format from tumblr. They should do it again for better admin UI. (And they are doing it right now)

However admin theme plugin (alpha) by Justin is awesome. (Didn’t know it was so simple)

Disable Sidebar and Widget Without Plugin

Sometime we need to disable sidebar / widget area conditionally, The most popular option is to use Widget Logic Plugin, or you can try my plugin: Atomic Widget (update: no longer available).
