Configuring Basic Settings
Here are a few things you might want to do:
Enable the idea content type for places in which ideas should be created.
Each kind of place -- space, group, and so on -- can specify what kinds of
content are allowed in it. Before people start using ideas, administrators
for those places should confirm that the Ideas content type is selected if
they want to support new ideas in that place. You should also set the
default for new spaces (see Enabling Ideas By Default in Places).
If you've customized permissions for any spaces in which people can create
ideas, be sure to take a look at how permissions for those spaces are
configured. For example, if you've created overrides for particular users,
granting or denying certain permissions for certain content types, then
you'll want to make sure that permissions for the Ideas content type is what
you want it to be. To do that, view permissions configuration for each space
you might need to adjust.
