Sitefinity CMS provides you with a variety of tools for administering your system - setting workflows, user management, site synchronization, connectivity, and more. Using the administration sections, you can modify all Sitefinity CMS settings entirely through the backend user interface. For example, in the advanced Sitefinity CMS settings, each module has its own page, where you configure all setting related to the module. In addition, all frequently used settings are taken out of the advanced setting into a basic settings section.
