The "site configuration form" of a CMF Site object provides a simple way to set and change the sitewide configuration options and policies for a CMF site. Theses options include some of the information that was provided when the CMF Site was created (such as site title and description), as well as other options that were given defaults when the CMF site was created.
The configuration options available from the site configuration form are:
Site Administrator. A value for this field is required in order to send mail from the site.
postmaster@localhost. A value for this field is required in order to send mail from the site.
localhost, which presumes that you have an SMTP server running on the same machine as the Zope software. A valid SMTP server address is required in order to send mail from the site.
If you select "Generate an email member's initial password" the site will randomly generate an initial password that members must use to log into the site and email that password to the address provided by the member. This option may be preferred if you want to verify a prospective member's email address before granting membership to the site.
If you select "Allow members to select their initial password" (the default), the site will allow new members to enter their own password at registration time.
After making changes to the site configuration options, click the "Change" button to save the changes.
