Preferences is an extension allowing wiki administrators to change key settings of the wiki, without resorting to scripts and manual settings in LocalSetting.php file. These settings are wiki-wide, although some of them can be overriden on user level through UserPreferences.

Technical background

Preferences lets you control and set various aspects of BlueSpice extensions.

Where can I find the Preferences function?

Firstly, you need to have administration permissions in order to call up Preferences. If you have the correct permissions, you will be able to see the link "Preferences" in the "Global settings" and then on "Preferences" as you see on the image below. Click on the link and you will be taken to the administration page.

Preferences page contains many sections that are represented by expandable tabs. By default all tabs are collapsed. More information on individual settings of each of these extensions you can find on those extension's pages.
