Written by Stephanie Brown Monday, 6 August 2012
Over the course of the next few articles, we will explore and edit settings for the main aspects of your phpFox website.
This article will focus on editing your site’s General settings. These settings include your Site’s Name, Title, Copyright Info, Site’s Meta Tags and much more.
First you want to log into your phpFox Admincp. Once there, select Settings, then Manage Settings from the menu.
You should now see the following screen. This screen shows a list of all the settings categories that your site has. Under the Global Settings heading, select General.
Site Name – This is your site’s name.
Site Title – This is the title that is displayed at the top of your browser window.
Copyright – This is where you add your copyright information.
Site Title Delimiter – This is the symbol that separates the text in your website’s titles at the top of the browser window
Meta Keywords – This is where you enter your site’s general meta keywords. You can edit keywords for each module in that module’s settings (if available)
Meta Description – This is where you enter your site’s general meta description. You can edit descriptions for each module in that module’s settings (if available)
Meta Description Profile – This is the meta description for a user’s profile. Keep this short so that there is room for the user personal information.
Section Privacy Item Browsing – This should remain set to False while you are on any hosting environment that does not include load balancing and several SQL servers.
Friends Only Community – This should remain set to False while you are on any hosting environment that does not include load balancing and several SQL servers. In order for this to work, Section Privacy Item Browsing needs to be enabled.
IE8 or Higher Requirement Check – phpFox requires IE8 or higher, you can set this to true if you want phpFox to check if your users are using IE8 or higher. If you do not plan to show a warning to those that are using IE7 and older, then you will want to set this to false.
Disable IE Warning – set this to true if you do not want to show the warning to users that are visiting your site with IE7 and older. If you want to show the warning, then leave this set to False.
Official Launch Date (Month/Day/Year) – You can set the “official” launch date of your website here. You can set any date here that you wish.
After filling out these fields, select Submit to save your information. You have finished editing your General site settings!
Look out for Part 2, coming soon!
