ThoughtFarmer has a variety of configuration settings which can be altered from the Admin panel: Advanced section > Configuration Settings page. Many of the configuration settings on that page correspond to values that can be edited on other pages in the Administration Panel. Where possible, it is recommended to change settings using these other pages.
There are some critical system settings that can be changed within the Configuration Settings page that could cause ThoughtFarmer to behave unexpectedly or even crash, so make sure you are familiar with a configuration setting before changing it. Hover over the question mark icon on the right of any configuration setting to view a brief explanation of the setting's function.
