Each portal has a number of configuration options available on the Configuration tab of the Portal detail screen. Most are listed in groups, the first of which enables the option in general, followed by particular configuration choices. Note that with a couple exceptions, enabling options does not turn them on automatically in any given portal, rather it simply enables the links to work if added.
Some options are read-only and are grayed out, visible for reference purposes.
