Question

How can users customise an edit form for their personal use, and customise other settings like access keys?

Answer

Site.Preferences is a template which can be used to create a custom Preferences page, and a custom EditForm page can be specified on that page as well, with the following:

Add to local/config.php:

   $PageEditForm = '$[Site.EditForm]';

and add to Site.Preferences (this is not really necessary, but it gives the idea):

   'Site.EditForm' => 'Site.EditForm',

As said in Site.Preferences, a user should copy this page under a different name, make any customisations, and _select this link_, which will place a cookie with the new page name for the Preferences. For instance create a page for user 'Joe' called Profiles.Joe-Preferences and add

   'Site.EditForm' => 'Profiles.Joe-EditForm',

with Joe-EditForm being Joe's customised version.

Any customisations of access keys can also be done for user Joe on page Profiles.Joe-Preferences. Joe-Preferences and Joe-EditForm are put conveniently into the Profiles group, next to Joe's profile page called Profiles.Joe. This prevents the Site group from being overloaded with user preference pages, and which may not be accessible to users anyway, and keeps these all in a group which is accessible for general user editing.

That's all. Individual users can have their personal Preference page with an entry pointing to their customised edit form.
