b. Cache site config files (If you check this box the site engine will cache in memory site configuration files. This can improve your site responsiveness.)
c.Allow to remap incoming urls (url rewrite)
d.Use 404 response status code for ‘Page not found’ page (If you uncheck this box the 404 page will return the 200 response status code. Useful for some SEO techniques. Required a custom developed 404 page.)

b.Logo image virtual path
c.Logo image alt/title text

d.Show Mini Logo (Uncheck this box if you do not want to show mini site logo at the very bottom of the page.)

Paste your ads code in the box below. This code will be added to each site page except the admin area pages.

– Edit a Tracking Code
Use this page to add a tracking code like Google Analytics.

– Edit DataFeed Cache Settings (Use this page to set time values for Data Feed xml cache)

a.Cache Api Response (If you check this checkbox than site engine will save on disk the downloaded from APIs xml. This can significantly improve your site performance. But be sure that your hosting server has enough disk space for this option (more than 250 Mb).)
b.Cache Time For Products Request (min) (Set here how long you want to keep downloaded Products Request xml in cache before update it(in minutes: 1440 min = 24 hours). The Products data is changed frequently, so do not use a value more than two days (2880 min).)
c.Cache Time For Taxonomy Request (min) (Set here how long you want to keep downloaded Taxonomy xml in cache before update it(in minutes: 1440 min = 24 hours). Taxonomy data do not change frequently, so you can set a greater value for it, like 43200 min (~ one month).)

– Manage Admin Accounts (Use this page to add or delete admin accounts.)

– Edit Security Settings

a.Auth Cookie Name (If you have only one Web-based application on your server, then .ASPXAUTH is a perfectly secure choice for the cookie name. In fact, any choice would be secure. But, when your server runs multiple ASP.NET Web-based applications, it becomes critical to assign a unique authentication cookie name to each application. If the names are not unique, then users logging into any of the Web-based applications might inadvertently gain access to all of them. For example, a user logging into the online shopping site to view his order history might find that he is now able to access the administration application on the same site and change the prices of the items in his shopping cart.)
b.AuthTimeOut (Authentication timeout value has changed to be 30 minutes by default. This means that after 30 minutes of inactivity, a user will be prompted to login again (note: everytime they hit the site the 30 minute window clock gets reset — so it is only if they are idle that it will timeout). If you want to change the timeout value to be longer, you can easily change the timeout value the timeout value is in minutes).)
c.LoginPage (A login page url. Please do not change it if you don’t have developed your own login page)
d.ReturnUrlAfterLogin (After the user has been authenticated, the user is redirected to the earlier requested page. But if he comes to the login page as first page of the your site, set here to what page he should be redirected after logon.)
e.Return Url after Logout (Specify here a URL to redirect user to a web page after logging out from admin area. You can use this variable to return user to an initial login page.)

– Edit Top Tabs Navigation Menu
(This page allows you easily edit the top tabs navigation menu that you can see on every page of the your site.)

– Google Site Map Settings
(Use this page to edit Google site map settings. See result xml at sitemap.aspx page.)

(This page allows you easily edit the ‘Featured Products’ module’s content on the default page)
