Adding admin notice on plugin activation can be super useful. For example we can:
- Add link to the settings page,
- Giving info about minimum requirement of their server,
- Tutorial links,
- Promote pro version of our plugin,

- Ask donation,
- Or simply telling them that they are awesome.
If you ever try to create an “Admin Notice” on plugin activation. You’ll know that using
admin_notices action inside your “activation hook function” will not work. But there’s a workaround for that.
It’s very easy to create settings page in WordPress. But sometimes in our plugin we only need a single/few options. And creating dedicated settings page just for this option is overkill.

I think GMail Apps in Android is amazing. I wish I have that in my laptop. I don’t like to assign a browser tab constantly open just for email.
If you feel the same way, I think you need to at least try Andy.

WordPress Dashboard Widget API is my favorite API in WordPress and sometimes dashboard is my preferred admin page to add simple settings in client site. It’s the screen they will see when they logged in. Why not use it more?
In this post I want to share a little about how to properly save the dashboard meta box “Configuration” with the build in nonce validation.
I read a lot of tutorial but no mention about this, I don’t even find any reference in Codex page.
I finally updated my phone to Lollipop. I’ve waited forever to get Lollipop update on my Asus Zenfone 5. So, last week I decided to update it myself.
So, last month I bought a new laptop. I actually bought two laptop. The first one is an Acer laptop. Use it for a week, not very happy with it. So I bought Asus.
I spent several days to set up and install the laptops. I think it’s a good idea to documented it here.
I hope this post will be useful for folks who want to do web development in windows.
