BlueSpiceConfigManager provides a special page that enables managing all global wiki settings in one place.

Once on the special page, all settings will be grouped by logical groups. There are three ways of grouping the settings:

  • Feature - grouping by type of functionality setting belongs to (searching, administration...)
  • Extension - grouping by the extension the setting is coming from
  • Package - grouping by the package extension providing the setting comes from.
