    <p>The configuration settings panel controls the behavior, look and feel, and
    overall features of the system.</p>
    
    <p>You can view the system configuration panel by going to:
    <br><?=tr('Admin')?> -&gt;

    <p>Most system settings are described in detail on the panel, so there is
    really no need to reinvent the wheel here (we aren't really smart enough
    for that task anyways).  Instead, we will simply review some of the more
    commonly used elements and special considerations.</p>

          Editing existing ticket information can be logged setting log_edit to ON.
          But if you need to require the user to explain why the edition took place
          you need to set edit_reason_required to ON too. (If log_edit is set to OFF
          then edit_reason_required is ignored).

          If this is set to zero, priority shading will be turned off (priority
          shading changes the color of tickets in a list according to their
          priority).
