Global Settings 3 years 1 week ago #67746

Hi anyone know where i can find global settings? I want to switch Filter HTML for XXS off and by accessing through global settings..

I do not see the icon that will direct me to global settings mentioned here: docs.limesurvey.org/Global+settings

Can anyone give me any specific directions?

Thanks!

Cheers
Eileen

Maybe you are missing the right to change the glbaol settings?

The icon can be found here:

What version of LS do you use and are you the administrator of the server? Maybe you do not have the rights to change global settings?

If you don't see the circled symbol on the upper left when you logged in, then you don't have the rights to access global settings and you'll have to ask the administrator of your LS installation.

I m using version 1.90.
I am not sure if I m the administrator, my teacher passed me the username n password to access. But when I login I can see the word "Adminstration" (similar to yours), does it mean anything?

If I m not the administrator, does it mean that if I ask the administrator to click the above icon and change the setting, I will be able to use it as well?

The word "administration" just indicates the area of limesurvey. So the highest level ist the administration. Some parts of Limesurvey a "normal" user wouldn't see. And this is good.

So if your teacher passed you a username and a password I am quite sure that you are not the administrator. Even your teacher might not be the administrator, but it is probably centrally administered by someone at your school.

You should talk to your teacher and ask if the XSS filter can be switched off because you need this for "this and that". I don't see any other option if it is not your own limesurvey installation. You depend on the administrator here.

Thank you holch for your reply. I think I will have to speak to my school admin regarding this.

Thanks once again (:
