Managing Site Settings for Members

Now you’ll learn how to set some global settings for your Sites: site membership types, default user associations, and Site ratings.

  1. Open the Product Menu and use the site selector to choose the site you want to configure.

  2. In Site Administration, go to ConfigurationSite Settings.


Details shows the same form you filled out when first creating your Lunar Resort Site. This allows an administrator to change the description and membership type of a Site. The membership type can be set as open, restricted, or private. Users can join and leave an open Site at will. To join a restricted Site, a User must be added by the Site administrator. A User can also request membership through the Sites section of the Control Panel. A private Site is like a restricted Site but doesn’t appear in the Sites section of the Control Panel for Users who aren’t members.

You can organize Sites into hierarchies. At the bottom of the Details sub-section is the Parent Site section, where you can select the parent site for the currently selected Site. After selecting a parent Site, you have a checkbox option to limit membership to members of the parent Site.

Default User Associations

When you have saved your Site settings, you can begin assigning Users to Roles and Teams. Still inside Site Settings, go to the Advanced section. Default User Associations, the leading option when opening the Advanced tab, lets you configure Site Roles and Teams that newly assigned Site members get by default. To learn more about creating Roles, visit the Roles and Permissions tutorial.

Ratings and Mentions

Next, open the Social section of Site Administration. From Ratings you can enable ratings for applications in the Site. You can also select ratings types like Stars, Likes, and Thumbs.

The last configuration option in Site Settings related to managing Users is Mentions in the Social tab, where you can enable/disable Mentioning Users. This lets Users mention (notify and/or draw attention to) friends and colleagues by entering the “@” character followed by their user names.

Next, you can learn about Teams.
