Move out colours from global.css:
1) Move colours to new _colors.css file. This reduces the need to override global.css.
2) Add a Tempcode INCLUDE directive to include the default theme's own _colors.css. This is so any newly-defined colours come through automatically.
3) At top of global.css change comment…

core: Tile-based activity feed

Raised 0% of 60 credits
(60 credits = 10 hours or £330.00 GBP)

Update the activity feed addon, and turn it into the sole default block - with a new tile display mode. This will give a really simple, complete, and pretty default display, side-stepping a lot of customisation problems users have had in the past.

Render-style option: Feed, or now tile:

Change to a normal CRUD-module style system, so you can fully edit existing filtered words.

Review all the defaults, how each are matched.

Make all the defaults to substitutions, rather than blocks.

Instead of how many days to keep it, change it to how many MB of total data to keep.
This is more in line with what people need.

Default it to 50MB?

installer: Installer and Setup Wizard simplification

Raised 0% of 48 credits
(48 credits = 8 hours or £264.00 GBP)

Installer:

1) Simplify forum driver choice. The complex UI is not needed given we don't even recommend changing the default. Make it into a simple list box, marked Advanced.

2) Remove 'domain' option, it's excessive

3) Remove "I do not mind being listed on compo.sr as a featured user". We'll be having peopl…
