Advanced Prefs

The Advanced Preferences are accessible to the Sys Admin users for setting up more advanced or customized global settings for the entire system. These are system-wide settings that control the Trac system regardless of Center Profile, Subcenter, or Group. The Advanced Preferences are found from the Utilities and Prefs…

There are many more Advanced Preferences that could be customized for your Trac application. This section will highlight only some more commonly used advanced preferences. Many of these preferences do not exist until entered the first time.

campusboxShow

The default login screen can contain a campus information box to the left of the login window. The

campusboxShow setting allows you to enter a value of No to hide the campus information box.

campusboxTitle

If the campus information box is showing on the default login screen, you can also set the title of the box.

The default title is simply 'Campus'. Enter another title into the value for this preference to rename the campus information box.

CampusCSS

The colors of the Trac system are highly customizable by default; however, some may wish to be more advanced with their customizations of the look and feel to the Trac application. The default Trac application style sheets may be overridden with custom campus information entered in the CampusCSS preference. Contact Redrock Software Corporation for assistance on entering the correct styles.

LABEL:Password

The password field on the default login screen is simply titled 'Password'. Modify the LABEL:Password setting to change the title of the password field on the default login screen.

LABEL:UserName

The username field on the default login screen is simply titled 'User Name'. Modify the LABEL:UserName setting to change the title of the username field on the default login screen.

popName

When your Trac application sends email through your campus mail server, it is done through a process called mail relay or mail forwarding. This can typically be done anonymously so there is no account needed to send an email. Some universities, however, will not allow anonymous mail relay and require a username and password to authenticate a user to relay the mail. The popName setting contains the username of this account. The popPass setting contains the password of this account.
