“You are not supposed to pursue something that’s supposed to fall into place over night. If there weren’t hard parts, there would be no value to creating. You have to fail more often if you are going to be successful,” said Herrin, adding that entrepreneurs must fail their way to success through effort and passion.

Fatin, a singer contestant of X-Factor Indonesia who had ever featured in official Bruno Mars’ site just got unlucky tonight. She forgot the lyric during her performance. She failed to give her best perform in a song “Everything At Once” by Lenka. This is the first time I found a funny thing yet bit hearth-touching moment.
I am not always follow the X-Factor. I got the info from Twitter timeline. Then, I did the searching what people was talking about this.
Some Twitter user’s opinion said that this song is really hard to remember.
I have done creating Product post type with a custom meta field as in the screenshot above. I set up a meta field as custom order setting. To display Product loops with custom order by custom meta value, I use this codes.
// WP Query settings $args = array( 'post_type' => 'acme_product', 'posts_per_page' => 10, 'meta_key' => 'cptproduct_order', // Name of meta key 'orderby' => 'meta_value_num', // Order by number of meta value 'order' => 'ASC' // Order by lowest to highest value (1,2,3,4,..) ); // Loop for custom post type $loop = new WP_Query( $args ); while ( $loop->have_posts() ) : $loop->the_post(); echo '<div class="entry-content">'; the_title(); the_content(); echo '</div>'; echo '<p>' . get_post_meta($post->ID, 'cptproduct_order', true) . '</p>'; // Print meta value echo '<hr />'; endwhile; // End of loop

Spam comments are stored in pending comments section in WordPress admin. Whenever I got spams more than 50. I usually use Delete Pending Comments to delete them quickly. This plugin does deleting spams just in seconds — it is my time saver machine. It helps me a lot rather than I manually delete spam comments one by one.
I have updated new version of Rundown. Here are the changes:
1. Main navigation for smaller screen
Comparing with previous version, the new version has better main navigation when it is viewed in smaller screen. The new main navigation contains menu items which is set from custom menu (Appearance > Menus) option. The old version didn’t, it just displayed all pages.
2. Calendar widget style
See the comparison between new and old version below:
3. Widget title
I decided to make slight touch to widget title style. I made it higher to make more proportional.
4. Comment form CSS improvements
Those are minor changes I made. Download Rundown 1.6.4 here.
