Free Microsoft Office available on iPhone, iPad and Android

microsoft-office-2013-e1422619842836Microsoft has announced that its Word, Excel and Powerpoint will be available for free in Android based tablets.

It also released an app for its popular Outlook email program to run on Apple’s iPhone and iPad, hoping to attract the millions of users familiar with Outlook from their work desktops.

For almost three months Microsoft has been offering the test versions of the Office apps on Android but the announcement marks the availability of finished products from the online Google Play app store.

It is a part of company’s strategy and Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella attempts towrest back the initiative in the battle for mobile users, where Microsoft has fallen behind Apple and Google Inc. Nadella broke with decades of tradition last March by releasing a free, touch-friendly version of Office for Apple’s iPad, before such software was even available for Microsoft’s Windows devices.

How to hide WordPress admin for your subscribers?

These functions will help you for hiding  WordPress admin for your subscribers. We’ve used a capability of “edit_posts” which is just outside of the roles of a Subscriber user. If the user is logged in, but can’t edit posts, then hide the admin bar on the frontend of the website. If the user is logged in, but can’t edit posts, do not allow them to access the WordPress admin panel.
This code could go in functions.php of your theme or in a plugin you create.

* Disable admin bar in frontend for subscribers.
function themeblvd_disable_admin_bar() {
if( ! current_user_can('edit_posts') )
add_filter('show_admin_bar', '__return_false');
add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'themeblvd_disable_admin_bar' );

* Redirect to homepage and not allow access to
* WP admin for Subscribers.
function themeblvd_redirect_admin(){
if ( ! current_user_can( ‘edit_posts’ ) ){
wp_redirect( site_url() );
add_action( ‘admin_init’, ‘themeblvd_redirect_admin’ );

You have to remember that the choices are all yours, because it’s your site, and you have to decide what you like. Choices like which colors, styles, fonts, graphics and writing styles to use are all very personal choices and not to be made lightly.

Here, we’ve managed to persuade some of the web’s busiest devs and designers to part with their most closely guarded tricks and tips. It’s quite a collection.
