How to Setup Basic Configuration Settings in Chevereto

Welcome back once again!

Today we will be discussing Chevereto Configuration. In the simplest terms this is what you use in order to configure different pieces of your installation. How I am going to cover this is by sections. I’m not going to go to horribly in depth as that would make for a very very long tutorial however I am going to cover each category and what you can do with them and have pictures included.

So first let’s go ahead and log into your account and view your dashboard. You will click Settings like so:


Once you are at that page you will see Settings and a drop down menu like so:


So now we will go over each category in that drop down menu.

So the first one is Website it looks like so:


This section allows you to change the name of your install, the description of your site. Some meta tags to allow for SEO. You can also turn your site to public or not public.

The next category is Content it looks like this:


This area will allow you to change how many images per page and if you turn on safe search settings (ie. inappropriate images).

The Next section is Image Upload. It looks like this:


This section allows you to change the max upload size, if uploads are allowed and if guests can upload things. It also allows you to set image width and height as well as a watermark.

The next section is Categories it looks like this:


This page allows you to set the Categories that you wish to have for your site.

The next section is Flood Protection it looks like this:


This section allows you to as they say it

Block image uploads by IP if the system notice a flood behavior based on the number of uploads per time period


The next section is called Theme it looks like this:


This section allows you to select the theme that you want. Change your logo and allows you to change image listing size.

The next section is Banners it looks like this:


This is the section that you would use in order to set up Advertisements on your site. On the footer header etc. It also allows you to select the pages that you wish to use for these as well.

The next section is System it looks like this:


This section allows you to Enable error reporting in php.

The next section is Email it looks like this:


This section allows you to set up email from your website. Settings include From name email name what type of email protocol you wish to use (IE. php fun() or SMTP).

The next section is Social Networks it looks like this:


This allows you to link your custom Facebook app and twitter app here. However this is beyond the scope of this tutorial and this isn’t covered here.

The next section is External Services it looks like this:


This allows you to set reCaptcha or enable your Google Analytics code or use Cloudflare.

The last section is API it looks like this:


This section allows you to get a key that could allow you to create your own app or integrated website using this installation.

That’s it for sections! If you need any help ask away or contact support!
