Site Configuration

Each site in TubeStudio has a site configuration page that will let you overwrite global configuration settings for each individual site. So you could have one site that allows guests to comment and another one to not allow this.

When you have a lot sites that will share the same configuration settings but only a few that will be different this will let you easily set the global settings once for the majority and then override specific settings on select sites.

The settings on the pictures shown below will be the default settings on each site you add:
