A Small Update On Content

Hey everyone, You might’ve noticed it (or not) that we’ve been struggling to post regularly in the past two months. The reason of this is two-fold, and while I want to put the blame on 2016 for being an unpleasant year that would only be partially true. I’ve been dealing with some personal issues. Which, since they’re personal, are none of your concern so I never told you about that. Simple as that. I am looking forward to rediscovering a state of mind where blogging is something I can focus on. My “Joomla” hiatus mught be even bigger than my … Continue reading A Small Update On Content

End of Teachers Exchange support

Due to “organizational changes” to Reddit’s Teacher Exchange, Joomla & More will no longer be participating in this even this year – or in the near future. The new direction chosen by the organizers means that teachers will be competing in what can best be described as a “Battle Royal” for funds of people donating money.

They used to limit themselves to only WordPress.com domains, but after the rollout all websites, including those using custom domains use HTTPS.

That means that Joomla-and-more.com is now using HTTPS as well. Look at the green lock in the top left corner. Isn’t it glorious? Okay, maybe it’s not that impressive.   This rollout by WordPress hits … Continue reading WordPress.com goes all-in on HTTPS

Managing Exchange without an Office365 License

Just because you’ve got full admin privileges on an Office365 installation, doesn’t always mean that you have – or need – an Office365 license. The company I work for manages the Office365 installations for it’s clients. To do so, we use an Admin account without a license as this would only add costs. However, that poses a problem since this means that the Admin can’t access the Exchange portal directly. One easy way to access it is either by visiting https://outlook.office.com or by clicking the “Outlook” app wherever you’re located. But without a license, this will generate an error. Unfortunately, … Continue reading Managing Exchange without an Office365 License
