Add Links to Other Settings to Community Settings Page

Add Links to Other Settings to Community Settings Page

Short, concise description of the idea
Add links to other pages where communities can specify settings to the Community Settings page.

Full description of the idea
Currently, the Community Settings page contains links that allow a maintainer to manage the community's Account, Profile, Journal Style, Settings, Invitations, and Members. However, there are a number of other pages with settings that a community maintainer can control:

* Custom Friends Groups
* Schools
* Memories
* Userpics
* Viewing Options
* Tags
* Comment Settings

It would be helpful to include some or all of these in the links on the Community Settings page.

Obviously, these are not all of equal importance, but I think Viewing Options (where one can set a minimum default security level for future entries) and Comment Settings would be particularly helpful. It would also be nice to have links to the rest in a centralized location.

One possibility would be to include two rows for each community in the Actions column on the Manage Communities page, as well as in the row of links at the top of the Community Settings page. If this is not feasible for aesthetic or formatting reasons, it would be nice to add the links to the Community Settings page even if they are not on the main Manage Communities page.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Centralized community management with easy-to-find links to manage community settings.
  • Would bring harder-to-find settings to the attention of community maintainers.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Too many links might result in confusion.
  • Too many links might be difficult to lay out on the page.
