Miscellaneous

The Miscellaneous settings in Plikli CMS are:

  • Trackback URL. To know more about it check Trackback
  • Enable Extra Fields? This feature is very handy to add additional fields to the Submit feature. I.e. Author, Location, etc., to name a few!
  • Allow friends. By default it is set to true. It allows users to follow each others (follower/following) and exchange messages.
  • Search Method. Three methods are provided and by default it is set to 3, which is the most optimized method. Admins can still experiment the other methods to find what suits them best.
  • Page Size (How many articles to show on a page). The default is set to 8 stories after which the pagination shows if you have more articles.
  • Top Users Size (How many users to display on the top users page). It is set to 25 after which the pagination shows.
  • Validate user email. It is set to false by default. Set it to true if you want users to validate their emails. After registration, the user receives an email to confirm and validate before they can login to the site.
  • Timezone offset. Is set to 0. You can change it depending on your time zone.
  • Show subcategories. Is set to false by default. Keeping the value as false means that clicking on a parent category will not bring the subcategories in the search result. When Admins create sub-categories, it is recommended to set it to true.
  • Pagination Mode. It is set to 1.
  • Site Language. The value is set when you first install Plikli CMS and select the language of your choice. Admins who wish to change the site language, follow these steps (Example given for French language):
    1. In the /languages folder, rename lang_french.conf.default to lang_french.conf
    2. Change the value to french in the Dashboard -> Settings -> Miscellaneous -> Site Language
    3. Clear the Template cache using the link in the Dashboard Tools Widget.
  • Allow users to change the Site language? It is set to 0 which means the feature is disabled. Admins who wish to allow their users to change the language of the interface (based on their audience), follow these steps (Example given for French language):
    1. In the /languages folder, rename lang_french.conf.default to lang_french.conf
    2. Change the value to 1 in the Dashboard -> Settings -> Miscellaneous -> Select Language
    3. The additional language (French in this case) will appear in the user profile settings to select it.
