Thanks Randy,
However, I'd like to see all my security 'settings' in one place, so
is there a way to set the same params as in here -


via config.php?

whats' the syntax?

I don't want to set anything via the pages or groups themselves - that
way I'll never remember what is password-protected and what's not,
I'd prefer to set everything through config.php
