Admin >> Configuration >> Theme and Layout

This is the section to basicly reset things on your forum.  Mainly, I use it to reset certain Member defaults, but you can also change the defaults for Guests, or remove the members defaults,

When you first see the page, you scroll down and see different themes that you can choose for the default theme setting.

You also see tabs labeled:
-Manage and Install
-Themes and Settings
-Reset Options

You are already on the Manage and Install section, so why don't we go ahead to the Themes and Settings Section?

In this section, there is nothing that you can accually do there, other than if you click on "SMF Default Theme - Core", it will bring you to the same page as the Current Theme page is.

Now the part that is most helpfull here, the Reset Options Tab.  Here, you can reset options from Guests to Members.  When you click on the Reset Options tab, you will see three links:
-Reset default (guest) options for this theme
-Reset all members' current options for this theme
-Remove all members' options and use the defaults

When you click on the "Reset Default (Guest) Options for this theme" link, You will get different options to set as default for your guests:
Show board descriptions inside boards.
Show child boards on every page inside boards, not just the first.
Don't show other users' avatars.
Don't show other users' signatures.
Leave words uncensored.
Return to topics after posting by default.
Don't warn on new replies made while posting.
Show most recent posts at the top.
Show most recent personal messages at top.
Show a popup when you receive new messages?
Save a copy of each Personal Message in my outbox by default.
Notify when comments are posted on your profile page
Turn notification on when you post or reply to a topic.
First day of the week on the calendar
Use quick reply on topic display
Show quick-moderation on message index as

Just click the checkboxes for which ones you want on or off, then click Save.

If you click on the "Reset all members' current options for this theme" link, the page will come up with the same exact options that you can change for guests.

If you click on the "Remove all members' options and use the defaults", a alert box will come up saying:
"Are you sure you want to remove all theme options?  This may reset custom profile feilds as well".

Then from there, you can click "Ok" or "Cancel".
