e107 System Preferences

The Preferences section found in e107 CMS Admin Area is used to store important information about your e107 website.

Preferences control many aspects of your website including its security and behaviour. The settings you choose will influence how your visitors see and use your website. It controls, in part, how search engines categorise, list and recognise your website. As such, defining your preferences should be high on your Implementation Checklist.

How to set your e107 CMS Preferences

  • Login as an Administrator
  • Click Admin Area > Settings > Preferences

Preferences are grouped into ten sub-sets of options accessed from the menu to the right of the Preferences Admin page. Follow the links below to find out more about each area.
