// This file contains the default settings for LimeSurvey
// Do not edit this file as it may change in future revisions of the software.
// Correct procedure to setup LimeSurvey is the following:
// * copy the lines corresponding to the parameter you want to change
//   from this file to the config.php file
// * edit these lines in config.php

// === Basic Setup

 * Because columns are tricky things, in terms of balancing visual
 * layout against semantic markup. The choice has been left to the
 * system administrator or designer. (Who ever cares most.)
 * $column_style defines how columns are rendered for survey answers.
 * There are four possible options:
 *     'css'   using one of the various CSS only methods for creating
               columns (see template style sheet for details).
 *     'ul'    using multiple floated unordered lists. (DEFAULT)
 *     'table' using conventional tables based layout.
 *     NULL    blocks the use of columns
 $column_style = 'ul';

 * $hide_groupdescr_allinone.
 * This parameter 'hide_groupdescr_allinone' can be set to control
 * if the group description should be hidden if the group description of a group of questions 
 * with all questions hidden by conditions is displayed in all-in-one survey mode.
 * hide_groupdescr_allinone can be set to true or false (default: true)

 * see http://getfirebug.com/lite.html for more info.

 * Furthermore data is aggregated to get a faster overview.

 * When this settings is true/1 (default) then the standard templates that are delivered with the
 * LimeSurvey installation package are read-only. If you want to modify a template just copy it first.
 * This prevents upgrade problems later because if you modify your standard templates you could accidenitally
 * overwrite these on a LimSurvey upgrade. Only set this to 0 if you know what you are doing.

*  PDF Export Settings   
*  This feature activates PDF export for printable survey and Print Answers

// CAS Settings
 * Please note that CAS functionality is very basic and you have to modify the client to your needs. 
 * At least the hard work is done. 
 * The Client is deployed in Limesurvey and a file login_check_cas.php does what login_check.php does in normal mode.
 * $casEnabled determines if CAS should be used or not for Authentication. 
 * $casAuthServer the servername of the cas Auth Server. Without http://
 * $casAuthPort CAS Server listening Port
 * $casAuthUri relative uri from $casAuthServer to cas workingdirectory
$casEnabled = false;
$casAuthServer = 'localhost';
$casAuthPort = 8443;
$casAuthUri = '/cas-server/';

*  Statistics chart settings
*  Different languages need different fonts to properly create charts - this is what the following settings are for 

*  $chartfontfile - set the font file name used to created the charts in statistics - this font must reside in <limesurvey root folder>/fonts
*  Set this to specific font-file (for example 'vera.ttf') or set it to 'auto' and LimeSurvey tried to pick the best font depending on your survey base language

*  $chartfontsize - set the size of the font to created the charts in statistics 
$chartfontsize =10;

 * $updatecheckperiod - sets how often LimeSurvey checks for updates - the number sets the number of days between updates.
 * Set to 0 to disable any update checks  
 * Recommended: 7

// and report them to the new config-defaults.php file (Do not simply overwrite the new 
// config-defaults file with your old one
