Layout

All settings can be accessed through the following filter options:

  • Feature: group by type of functionality the setting belongs to (search, administration...)
  • Extension: group by extension name
  • Package: group by BlueSpice edition and services (BlueSpice free, BlueSpice pro, Matomo)
config manager filter
config manager filter


All settings are available in any type of grouping. Changing the grouping type does not add or remove setting options. It just groups them differently.

After settings are adjusted, they can be saved by clicking Save, or reset to the default settings by clicking Reset.

Searching for settings

A search bar is located above the list of settings. Type in a keyword such as "logo" to find the corresponding setting.

The search returns settings regardless of the currently selected group.

Note: The search field has to be empty if you want to see the filter menu instead of the search.
