  • Re: Missing ...

    Missing [SiteSettings][Dir]
    • Re: Re: Missing ...

      [SiteSettings] -> DefaultPage : Page where you get redirected after login and logout. Different from IndexPage. (default /content/view/full/2/)
  • missing QueryAnalysisOutput

    in DatabaseSettings: if enabled (and sqloutput enabled), executed queres have an analysis done and sipalyed
  • missinga AlwaysLog[]

    in DebugSettings: used to set types of info that will be logged even if debug output is off
  • Typo

    There is a typo on this page:
    > Sets if the translation cache should be anabled or disabled.

    Should be E-nabled instead of A-nabled.
  • ShareCompiledTemplates-Settings

    The following TemplateSettings are missing:

    # If you share compiled templates with other site accesses
    # Where to store shared compiled templates
