allow_in_form: user_string_1

will take the user_string_1 input parameter, and use it to set the
user_string_1 config attribute and the USER_STRING_1 template variable.
Yes, you can define your own arbitrary input parameters, config
attributes and template variables in this way - you're not restricted
to the pre-defined ones. You can choose any name you want, e.g.
"header_string" or anything else you think is appropriate.
