Sorry, Anonymous Monk isn't allowed to use that page as it is only useful for registered users.

If you Login or Create A New User then you can access the page.

There is a link to your User Settings at the top right of your homenode — it's labeled "Edit your: Profile, Settings".

FrontPage Configuration

"FrontPage" is an alternative name (an alias) for The Monastery Gates. You can choose which sections of the Monastery will be shown to you on the FrontPage. Simply check the box next to any that you do not wish to see. The Maximum Entries column allows you to set the number of posts shown in each section. If you leave these fields blank, they will default to some sensible value.

Miscellaneous Settings

Note Configuration

These settings control the display of a single page view of a discussion thread. The Replies header depth setting controls how many levels of node headers are displayed on a page. When replies in a thread are deeper than this level, a box appears with the text "Some notes below your chosen depth have not been shown here". To view a node below this depth, click on it (or on any of the lower level nodes in the thread of interest) to make it the top-level node on a new screen.

The Replies text depth setting controls how many levels deep the node text is displayed on a single page. Nodes of which the level is deeper than set with Replies text depth will be shown with just a header (title, author, date, link), and no body text. Of course, no nodes are shown deeper than the level set with Replies header depth. To view the text of a node of which the text is not displayed, click on it (or on any of the lower level nodes in the thread of interest) to make it the top-level node on a new screen. By the way, the User Settings page allows you to set the Replies header depth below the Replies text depth, in which case the Replies header depth takes precedence.

Example: Replies header depth = 10 and Replies text depth = 2: the discussion is shown 10 levels deep, but only the first 2 levels show the actual text of the discussion; the next 8 levels only show the header information of the replies.

Note ordering: you may choose to see threads either in chronological order or by their reputation.
