Default values and override values for the User Settings module.
The User > User settings module may only represent a subset of the options from the table below.
Properties from the list below are available the different prefixes
and there is another prefix to hide single fields:
This sets default values of the property. A user may override these using its User Settings module. This affects only new users who did not login yet. It is not usually not possible to set new defaults for users who already logged in at least once. The only way to apply new defaults to existing users is by Reset Backend User Preferences in the Admin tools > Maintenance section of the install tool.
This forces values for the properties of the list below, a user can not override these setting in its User settings module. So, overriding values will be impossible for the user to change himself and no matter what the current value is, the overriding value will overrule it.
There is a tricky aspect to these
setup.override: If first you have set a value by
setup.overrideand then remove it again, you will experience that the value persists to exist. This is because it is saved in the backend user's profile. Therefore, if you have once set a value, do not remove it again but rather set it blank if you want to disable the effect again!
On top of being able to set default values or override them, it is also possible to hide fields in the User Settings module, using
setup.fields.[fieldName].disabled = 1. You can find the names of the fields in the Configuration module by browsing the "User Settings" array, example:
# Do not show the 'emailMeAtLogin' field to the user in "User Settings" module setup.fields.emailMeAtLogin.disabled = 1 # And force the value of this field to be set to 1 setup.override.emailMeAtLogin = 1
