Click the Settings tab to modify the settings of your workspace.  In order to view the settings, you must be logged in as someone with Administrator permission at My PBworks.

 

On this page of the settings, you can modify your workspace's basic information. Refer to the chart below for an explanation of each individual setting.  If you make any changes to this setting, you must click the "Save" button in order to set the changes.  If you navigate away from the settings page, your changes will not be set.

 

Setting Function

This is the title which appears at the top of every PBworks page.  For example, the title of this workspace is: PBworks User Manual. 

By default, this is your workspace name, but you can change it to any text.  While workspace names cannot contain spaces, the Title can.

 

 

This is a short description of the workspace that is visible to users when they attempt to log in.  Since this is a public facing setting, do not include any sensitive information in this field. 

 

Anonymous users can see this field without logging in.  Also, due to the risk of spam, you probably also want to avoid putting an email address in this field.  If users want to contact you, they'll be able to do so through the "Contact the owner" link on the login page, which does not reveal your email address.

 

This is the time zone which your workspace is set to.  Select the time which is closest to your own local time.  This effects the times and dates that users see in the page history of each page.

 

Note:  Currently, this does not shift with Daylight Savings Time.  If you live in a region which changes their clocks due to DST, you'll have to manually update this setting each time the clocks change. However, once you change the time in this setting, the change will be reflected in the history of all workspace pages.

 

 

Setting the keyboard language may improve the compatibility of PBworkspace's editor if you're using a browser with a foreign language character set. 

 

However, changing this setting affects no page content in the workspace, and the tools for PBworks will still appear in English.

 

 

This is the email address that gets the messages that are sent in the workspace's contact form.  By default, this is the creator of the workspace, but you can set this address to any address you want.

 

Note: Changing this address does not change the owner of the workspace.

 

If you make any changes to this setting, you must click the "Save" button in order to set the changes.  If you navigate away from the settings page, your changes will not be set.
