[SchmitzIT] xF Options Dictionary


Well-known member
As promised in the xF Style Properties Dictionary thread, enclosed you will find a similar file detailing all the options available within the AdminCP.

Basically it is intended to provide a quick oversight for all the available options within the AdminCP -> Options menu. It can also be used to document settings in case you set up a forum for a client.

As in the other file, I have enclosed notes that hopefully will enable Kier and/or Mike to quickly address a few minor issues (mostly spelling related, though with the Options, several options seem to exist in more than one location).

I'll try and keep the documentation up to date with new releases. Please let me know if you discover any inconsistencies or have other comments.

The dictionary for the 1.1.0 Admin Options is attached to this thread. Please find the full list of all Admin Option Documents in the following thread on our forum . Registration required for viewing the attachments:


Enjoy :)

Updated for today's RC2.
For those who bookmarked the guide, I moved it slightly. If you're looking for the old version of the document, it's been moved to the same location as the new one, just replace RC2 with RC1. Please adjust any bookmarks accordingly.
