XF 1.5 Brand New Member, Lots of Questions

Greetings, all! I am no stranger to administration of fora, but come from first the old Delphi Forums and then, later, Forums.net. I am having a hard time figuring out what controls what on the pallette and some of the other fields. Is there a post someone can link me to that has kind of a map or the like of what is what, and what means what?
