How to install CardDAV on a #Synology Diskstation

How do I install CardDAV on a #Synology Diskstation? <tutorial>

 Read more: How to install CardDAV on a #Synology Diskstation

Ok you got a Sinology Disktation and you know it can be used to sync contacts across multiple devices using a thing called CardDAV, but you can’t quite see where to set that up? Sounds like me, I could only find a wall of old information on the internet, none of it relevant to a Sinology disk station using  DSM 5.1. (DSM is the operating system of Sinology Disk stations - you find out which operating system your Sinology is using by logging in, clicking the control panel and then clicking the icon; “Info Center”).

I couldn’t find an easy explanation about CardDAV and how to set it up on my Mac, so I decided to find out and then write one (even if you don’t have a Mac the basic installation of CardDAV using your sinology interface will help windows users get started too).

How to search and replace files within a folder or directoy in textwrangler

by Andrew Brett Watson

How do you search and replace text from within a bunch of file or within a folder in Textwrangler.

I started out looking for norm find and replace in the fit menu, I soon found out that "Find" is located in the menu under the "Search" menu (makes sense). Believe it or not I initially tried the normal search and tried to find a way to make t work on a group of files or on all the files in a folder.

I couldn't find the option. Eventually I saw there is a separate option which allows you to search inside of all the files in a directory or even an entire disk. It was so simple:

Search>Multi-file Search (it's right under the Find option in the search menu). Heres a screenshot.

I hope that saves you some time. Once you know where the multi-file search is all you need to know is click the "other" button to choose to folder you wan to search through.

by Andrew Brett Watson

I con't be sure if this will help every time you get the error BAD CONFIGURATION FILE when trying to install a template in Prestashop 1.6. But when I got this error trying out a Leo Theme Prestashop template, it was hard to figure out why at first, in the end I found out the template file (the .zip) was somehow corrupt.

I hope this helps if you are trying to upload a template and get a BAD CONFIGURATION FILE error:

All I did was unzip the template.zip file and re-zip it. Read more: BAD CONFIGURATION FILE uploading a template in Prestashop 1.6
