Beginning date of the site: It's the date that appears in the statistics module.
Administrator e-mail : it is the e-mail which will receive the notifications for article insertions by third parties and the mails from the "contact us" module.
Articles in Top Page: Specifies the number of news articles that can be displayed in the main page of the news module.
Articles in Home: Specifies the number of news articles that can be displayed in the home page of the site (if the news module is the main one).
Stories in old articles box: Specifies the number of news articles that can be displayed in the old articles box. Note, however, that articles never get moved anywhere. An archived article, is any
article except for the first 10 articles (or whatever number you have in Preferences for "number of stories in Home"). The Old Articles block starts with the 11th newest article, and goes back from
there (again, it depends on "stories in Home").
Activate ultramode: specifies if other sites can take news titles from our site.
Allow anonymous to post : Specifies whether anonymous users can write comments.
Default theme: defines the default theme of the site.

activate the multilanguage characteristics: choose whether the site should support a multilingual functionality or not
display the small flags in place of the list: if the multilingual option is activated then this decides whether the block should display the small state flags in place of a list of language names
(see Figure 6-13).
activate banners : sets up the option to use banner rotation on the site. The banners will be positioned in the header. See Section
14.3.6 on how to change the banner's position in the header. If you are interested in other ways of ad placement in PHP-Nuke, see Section 20.7
on how to display ad banners in PHP-Nuke blocks and Section 21.11 on how to display advertisements in
For the footer of the page, imagine we have to insert 3 texts in a table that is 100% wide and positioned centrally:
Page Footer Line 1: first text to insert
Page Footer Line 2: second text to insert
Page Footer Line 3: third text to insert
Example: Suppose you have some "powered by" icons in the images/powered directory, like powered_by_linux.png, powered_by_apache.png, powered_by_mysql.png etc. Then you can insert the following
HTML code in one of the above footer lines and the icons will appear in the aproppriate footer line (Figure 7-34):
set up a message to appear in the footer of every e-mail sent by any user of the site,
set up the permissions for the e-mail and its attachments. In case you allow attachments, you can specify the directory that will temporarily hold them (however, this is not a good idea from the
security point of view, see Section 23.4.2),
allow for direct viewing of the attachments' content via web,
specify the directory that will hold the attachments of the received e-mails,
specify the maximum number of e-mail accounts that your users will be allowed to set up with WebMail,
specify the default POP3 server (i.e. server that will be used for querying for incoming e-mails),
specify if the header of the e-mail is going to be visible (recommended).
