Make Install Wizard and the Settings screens more consistent

Reported by: djpaul's profile DJPaul Owned by:

Severity: normal Version:
Component: Administration Keywords:


This is a wrapper ticket for tweaks to 1.6's admin screens. There are some nagging differences between the Install Wizard, and the regular Settings screens:

  • Wizard doesn't show icons on Components page
  • Wizard uses "Permalinks" for WordPress permalinks, Setup uses "Permalinks" for page mapping.
  • Wizard's Components page shows a lot of useful detail that the Setup's Components screen doesn't (see screenshot).

(In [6035]) Show icons on the install wizard's components page; matches UI with Settings screen. See #4205

I think the BP Settings 'Permalinks' page should be renamed 'Pages' to match the Wizard, and because it's a more accurate title; it should also take the design, because it's better than what we have right now. Thoughts?

(In [6079]) Add missing 'activity comments on blog posts and forum posts' settings back to Settings screen. See #4205.

I like the idea of it being Pages and have a minor CSS suggestion as a fix for now on the page. I've attached an image it's simply adding a border and some padding so should be quick to do. I agree the idea of a rethink properly when time would be good.

(In [6084]) Rename the 'Permalinks' settings tab to 'Pages' to match the setup wizard, and to avoid confusion between WordPress' use of the terms. See #4205
