Jump to: navigation, search

Preferences or Settings is a function on the Wiki-admin page.
It makes it easy to make and change the basic settings for the whole wiki, without having to resort to using scripts. These global settings and be changed by individual users in their UserPreferences.

Technical background

Preferences lets you control the behaviour of extensions and set default values.

Where can I find the Preferences function?

Screenshot: Preferences in the admin section
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 "Admin" section in the left hand navigation bar (user sidebar). Click on the link and you will be taken to the administration page.

The functionality of Preferences

The display shows different areas for the individual extensions. These areas can be fully displayed or collapsed. By default they will be collapsed. Click on the arrow symbol to see the further options. The different options for configuring the different extensions are described on the pages detailing the relevant extensions.
