If your rights allow you to, the Blog settings page should display two tabs: Parameters and Users.
This field allows you to define or change the blog title. It can be modified at all times.
The blog description is displayed among the infos displayed in RSS feeds, and on your blog itself if the theme you are using is programmed that way.
This is the blog's default language, as well as the default language for your entries.
This setting allows you to change the blog's public interface if the translation is available. Gandi Blog currently offers English and French. Spanish, Polish and Catalan are available too, with some phrases missing.
Accept comments / Accept trackbacks
Unticking the relevant box will disable comments and/or trackbacks on your blog.
Blog timezone / Date format / Time format
These three settings determine the timezone by which the entries and comments will be dated and horodated. Contextual help located next to the Date format and Time format will help you decide on the date's display aspects (short date or long, etc). You can also consult the official PHP documentation on the matter.
Number of entries per page
Beyond the maximum amount of entries per page as defined in this field, a link to additional pages will be displayed after the last entry of a page.
Display smilies on entries and comments
Replaces smilies in text format by matching images.
Three options allow you to refine your syndication feed's distribution:
- choosing the number of entries
- choosing the number of comments
- if the entries should be truncated or not
