I can zoom and scroll horizontally a lot easier on mobile browser than using regular desktop browser. Why do they make it all one column? Where is the sidebar with all the useful links, popular posts, latest comments, etc. Why something as important as sidebar have to be at the bottom of the page when i can just use my thumb to slide and access the sidebar?

Do your user/visitor really need one column fluid layout responsive design? Do you? 0

Better Responsive Design with `wp_is_mobile`, Why Responsive Design is Not Enough

What is wp_is_mobile ?

wp_is_mobile is a WordPress function to detect user/visitor browser using user agent string. Some might think that this method is like prehistoric era. An era before we have responsive design. Web developer use user agent string to serve different website content to mobile user or redirect to mobile site, something like m.website.com.

So why WordPress, a CMS of the future have this function? Why WordPress still need this and use this function all across admin pages?

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)
