In-Portal has very powerful configuration system (more then 300 settings that can be changed). However for me, as developer, it is hard to create new settings because I need to access database directly and put all fields manually without a validation.

I'm proposing to add "Add" toolbar button in each configuration section that would not only allow adding new setting right to it, but also validate developer entered data for common mistakes, like system setting phrase isn't in "la_config_*" format.

  1. Another good idea that I think will make things work faster for us.

    I would say that it would be good to get ability to see SQL that was
    exceutred so it can be added to project_upgrade.sql when needed.

    DA

  2. I also thought about that, but since kDBItem object would be used to create
    new setting then no sql could be retrieved out of it.

    I only can suggest doing export of last row of SystemSettings table.

  3. I think your suggestion would work just fine.

    We should NOT do this by default. Instead have a check-box which will
    manage this behavior.

    Please create a new task for this feature / improvement. I say we put in
    Icebox for now and can move around later.
