Personal and global preferences
The settings in the preferences change the behavior and look of the wiki. Here, there are two ways to customize the wiki: the personal, user-related settings and the configuration of the wiki by an administrator.
Each user can decide how the wiki should function or what it should look like when they are logged in. The settings only affect the individual user and are not visible to others. In addition to the personal profile data, a variety of configurations can be adjusted, for example:
- watchlist options
- notifications in the wiki or by email
- weighting of search results
- and more
The personal configuration options can be found in the profile area under "Preferences".
Prerequisite for access to the Config Manager are administrator rights. Here you can adjust various settings of the wiki. They affect every user. The preferences are searchable and their display can be sorted according to different criteria:
- by functions
- by extensions and
- by package (BlueSpice free, BlueSpice pro and Export)
Again, a variety of configuration options are available, such as:
- allowed file formats for file uploads
- if and where the VisualEditor is activated
- if authors should be displayed
- and more
The Config Manager can be found under the "Management" menu in the Admin area of the navigation.
