<h3>Documentation > IBX 2013 > All In One Guide > Configuration Steps > Miscellaneous Configuration Topics</h3>

Miscellaneous Configuration Topics:


1. Permissions


Once your users are in Active Directory, you can bring them in as SharePoint users. Go to Site Actions/Site Permissions. You will put your users into one of these SharePoint groups:


Members : They have contribute permissions

Owners : They have full permissions

Visitors : They only have read permissions




2. Search


When you enter in a search item in the search box in IBX, a search results window should. However, your search has to be configured first otherwise it'll keep indicating "We did not find any results."


If you have the Enterprise Edition, you can go to the Search configuration area in Central Administration and have the system "crawl" your intranet such that all items are indexed (including calendar events, announcements, lists, wiki pages, etc.).


In Central Administration, go to Application Management/Manage Service Applications/Search Service Application. Then, on the left side of the screen, under "Crawling", find "Content Sources" to specify what to crawl -- whether it's your SharePoint sites or files inside file shares or even external sites! You'll also indicate the crawl schedule for this particular source.


Other sections that are also under "Crawling":







a. If you want certain sections of the internal or external sites you specified in the content sources section to NOT be crawled, you would specify these exclusions/exceptions in the Crawl Rules section.


b. If you want certain file types within your file shares to be crawled, you would specify them in the File Types section.


c. The Crawl Log section has all the issues that came up during crawling.

3. Feature Stapler


By default, our Feature Stapler is off. In some cases, you might want to turn it on if you want non-SPI sites that you create to get the SPI look/feel. Just go to Central Admin/Site Settings/Manage Farm Features. Then locate the SPI Intranet Feature Stapler and hit Activate.

More Information

If you glance at any SharePoint 2013 Demo intranet site, and you will immediately realize that this new version of SharePoint provides a range of significantly enhanced, creative SharePoint 2013 Templates with a new structure delivering an efficient experience. Here navigation is driven by taxonomy and the content is not displayed by location, but is based on tagging, SharePoint 2013 Demo enables the users to reuse it in various multiple places athough authored at just one.


The different aspx tail giving an impressive effect is not there in Friendly URLs, depicting only relative content based on metadata and taxonomy.


The SharePoint 2013 Templates have differ from SharePoint 2010, and have also excluded some unnecessary and less famous ones.


The important two templates that have been modified with SharePoint 2013 against 2010 are:

Group Work SharePoint 2013 Template, and

Personalization size SharePoint 2013 Template


The Group Work site SharePoint 2013 Template is not there anymore as a site option. The Group work lists feature is also discontinued. Various features on this SharePoint 2013 Template were unnecessary as they are already there in the Team site Template. Rather, Group Work site template was not very famous or expected very often by users. Due to this change, the list of SharePoint 2013 Templates is simplified when the user desires to build a new site collection.


Besides the Group Work site template, another template which has been irregular is the personalization site template, and the reasons are exactly similar as for discarding the Group Work site template SharePoint 2013 Demo. This site was not very famous and these similar characteristics are already provided in the Team Site template.


The most popular SharePoint 2013 Templates available with the SharePoint 2013 portal are:


Team Site: This, as extensively known, is the most familiar SharePoint site template, commonly used by teams to build, share, organize and collaborate documents and information.

Blog Site: A site on which various multiple users share ideas, opinions and thoughts.

Developer Site: This template primarily benefits the users in creating, testing and publishing their apps.

Community Site: A great platform to build communities about different subjects and invite people to participate to share ideas.
