In answer to your question 2, the place to change the start date for the
academic year can be found in the includes/inc_global.php file. Look
for lines like the following:
// The month (1-12) in which the academic year is deemed to start
(always on 1st of the month)
I think the online documentation is for version 1 of WebPA and not
version 2 which is why you could not find this information.
