To change a setting, you need to add the setting name at the end of the command. Like this:
/manage settings <setting>. The bot will respond with a setting description, status, and modification message.
Setting names are case insensitive, meaning you could run
/manage settings setting:allowbotsor
/manage settings setting:AlLoWbOtSand it would still work!

Reset to defaultbutton will appear on every setting, this changes the current value to match the default value displayed in the message's embed.

rules) but can also be a way to show the setting is disabled
Disablebuttons will toggle a setting, changing it to

logs, which checks for a valid channel) have verification methods to make sure what you sent isn't invalid and the bot will alert you/not change the setting if it is.
Choose an optionselect menu will give you a set of options to choose from (usually just one). Press the select menu and choose an option from the drop-down list.
