I have some time on my hands so I hope no one will mind if pick up this article and move it on a bit. Global Config. is something that is central to so many areas of web site performance (security, speed, SEO, etc.) so I hope it proves useful to others as well as giving myself the opportunity to learn more about its mysteries.

I haven't read it in detail, but it looks good. I think some of the content could usefully be added to the help screens (eg. Help17:Site Global Configuration for ). Reference 1 is to a forum post that refers to a feature request. Any relevant information from the forum post should be included in the page and the link removed. Reference 3 is to an external site that should be removed as linking to external sites (except a small number of approved sites) is not permitted (see JDOC:Wiki policy)

Chris, Thanks for the feedback on this. I have removed those two citations because - as you point out - they contravene the Wiki policy. In fact, I don't remember seeing that Wiki policy page before. Like a lot of the information for prospective documenters, it takes some perseverance to uncover.
