Options area in site admin is where you can configure the important options for your site – like whether people can freely sign up for blogs, if you want your site to be private and what emails you want to send out to new users.

You access options by clicking on Site Admin > Options.

Remember to click Update Options at the bottom of the page when you make any changes.
