Preferences (not to be confused with User Preferences) are the over 1000 settings & options set in the various admin panels. They underwent a massive overhaul in Tiki4 and have been progressively improving since.
- Preferences can be overriden per perspective.
- Preferences are searchable in tiki-admin.php
- Starting in Tiki8, preferences are filtered by basic/advanced/experimental to make the admin panels easier for new admins.
- Starting in Tiki8, you can override via System Configuration.
