Today I used this neat DNS Lookup World Wide Online Service to check if a newly registered domain name had reached all DNS servers around the world. It is also useful if you change your present domain name to a new one to see the current state of the DNS propagation. Make sure you do a proper 301 redirect as well.
In the Scaling Guide for Sitecore CMS 7.0 it is recommended to restrict access to the Sitecore CMS Admin on the Content Delivery Servers (Web Front Servers). This can be done either by a IP restriction rule or setting Anonymous Access restrictions to some of the Sitecore folders. I had som issues setting restrictions to the default.aspx file. It was easily solved just if you know how to do it the correct way.

I am working on some customization on the new TwentyFourteen theme from WordPress. I wanted to replace the standard site name text at the top left of the site with a logotype. It is easy to do by editing the header.php file and insert an <img>-element. Then you should first create a child theme and edit a copy of the header.php file in the child theme folder. That way you can always update the original Twenty Fourteen theme in case there are any updates released in the future. Not using a child theme your modifications will be overwritten.
But I wanted to avoid doing modifications to the header.php file and insert a logotype using pure CSS instead. This is the way to do it.
