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
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.
The site information section is where you enter important details about your website. Including website or company name, the web address and several descriptions for the site. It contains the main contact info (company name/address etc). It assigns the Main Admin user account. It sets user class or group which is available on the contact form.
These options are generally for developers only, production e107 sites would not need these activated, except perhaps for troubleshooting.

Date Display Options
The Date Display Options give you control over the way e107 displays dates and times in your website. It is also where you tell e107 it is in the world, and where you are, so that your dates and times are displayed correctly.
The set of preferences control user access to your website. You can allow or prevent visitors request an account, to submit news posts, enter comments, and so forth.
