User Preferences let the user select all the user-level Preferences for the site: personal avatar, time zone, theme, language, etc.
Not to be confused with the general site-wide Preferences.
Key Function and sub-featuresIf enabled from the admin menu you will see a link to user Preferences in the main menu, the user Preferences page is a page for registered users (users with a valid login and password already logged in the system) where they can set up several Preferences about the site and where they can see some stats and quick links to pages, blogs or galleries they have created.
The user Preferences will display a screen where the user can change his or her email, the theme, his or her real name, home page and it has a link to the user personal wiki page as well as a link to edit the page.
Note:When using some types of external authentication (such as LDAP Authentication), the user's preferences may not be updatable from within Tiki. You will need to make changes to the host authentication system.
How do we set up the lat and longitude info? See gmap (Google maps) feature in Tiki for more info there.
The "Pick user Avatar" link ("My Tiki > Preferences > Personal Information > Avatar > Pick user Avatar", tiki-pick_avatar.php) can be used to let the user select his or her avatar:
By default there are no avatar in your tiki installation. You can upload your own (the recommended size for avatars is approximately 45 pixels x 45 pixels), or choose one from the collections you can install through the Mods Type Avatars.
The URL is your homePage, or your favorite URL. It can be outside the tikiwiki site. It is not used - other than display in your information.
General PreferencesThis screen can be used to set up different themes for users. Basically all the Preferences that can be set at the user level can be found in this screen.
In this screen the user can also configure the user messages settings, the user tasks settings and what will be displayed in the MyTiki screen.
