The main goal of a Settings tab is to allow the author to customize and personalize the background occurrences of a webpage or website. The settings are for you to make your site unique from all the others as well as to help you connect better by changing how emails are received or the way notifications are sent, to better make your website appeal to others.
Parts I changed
In my settings, I added a tagline for my site as well as a title to the whole website. I also customized the timezone to my current one. If I needed, in the settings tab I could change the categories and tags that are being used, however at this time I didn’t need to change them. I changed how many comments will be shown at once from 50 to less than 25, to keep from overwhelming myself and the reader. Lastly I changed a setting where a user must be logged in to post a comment to true because I feel if a user is willing to create an account they may “subscribe” or otherwise to read more from my page or give back feedback to me to allow me to have a more appealing page to everyone.
I found while digging through settings, that WordPress allows a lot of change to occur with the ability to change how and when comments are posted as well as by who. WordPress makes comments on a post very editable by me, so I can manage almost everything about what is commented by strangers. I also found it interesting that there is a “related” option to help move to other posts, pages, and websites more smoothly. This related tab would help a lot if the user is trying to get sponsors or just to help out others’ websites.
