User Guide/4 Settings
Before you progress too far into Mahara, you may wish to explore the Settings features. The Settings tab enables you to configure and determine how you will use the site, how friends may link with you and how the system will contact you with important information and notifications. If applicable you can also use this to oversee your Institution membership(s)
There are four sub menus in the settings menu; Preferences, Notifications, Activity Preferences and Institutional Membership
The Settings menu has been taken off the main menu and appears as a link in the upper right hand corner. Preferences have been renamed to My Account and Activity preferences have been combined into the Notifications menu.
