WordPress – Create a child theme

When you use a default WordPress themen and you want to make some adjustments it’s not always the best solution to just go and make modifications to the style.css.

For example, when you install an important update of the theme you use, your modifications will be lost.

Create a child theme:

Create a folder in the themes directory (wp-content/themes)
Name the folder the same as the ‘parent’, if your parent theme is called theme1 call your child theme folder: theme1-child.

In the folder theme1-child create a file; style.css.
Edit the file and add this:

Theme Name: Theme1
Theme URI:
Description: Twenty Fourteen Child Theme
Author URI:
Template: theme1
Version: 1.3.37

@import url(“../theme1/style.css”);

/* =Theme customization starts here
————————————————————– */

You can change each of these lines to suit your theme. The only required lines are the Theme Name, and the Template.

The child theme’s stylesheet is included after the parent theme’s and styles will therefore override those in the parent theme’s stylesheet.
Activate the child theme. Log in to your site’s dashboard, and go to Administration Panels > Appearance > Themes. You will see your child theme listed there. Click Activate.

Exhange 2010 – Enable calendar sharing via internet

By default the function to publish your calendar to the internet is turned off / greyed out.

To enable this function log in to the Exchange server and open the Exchange management shell.
There are different options for this policy.

For sharing only the free/busy data you have to type:
New-SharingPolicy -Name “Calendar Sharing Policy” -Domains “anonymous:calendarsharingfreebusysimple”

If you want to have the ability to share the full calendar with all details you have to type:
New-SharingPolicy -Name “Calendar Sharing Policy” -Domains “anonymous:CalendarSharingFreeBusyReviewer”

Now you have to apply the sharing policy to a user:
set-mailbox -SharingPolicy “Calendar Sharing Policy”

When you log in to the OWA go to:
Calendar -> Share -> publish this calendar to internet

Choose the settings you like and click Save.

You will now see 2 URL’s.
1 is for viewing the calendar in a webbrowser, the other is for adding the calendar to Outlook.

To add the calendar to Outlook copy the link with .ics as extension.
Go to Oulook and go to: Calendar -> Open calendar -> from internet and paste the URL.

You have now enabled internet calendar sharing and added it to your Outlook!
