  • Updated theme management to use theme preview when importing new versions of a theme or reverting themes (feature still being worked on)
  • If the accessing user has permission to view member management, the user link in moderation now navigates to the user in member management, otherwise, it continues to link to the public profile.

  • Updated abuse service to only confirm abuse when content is expunged. Previously, denied appeals would confirm abuse which would often result in physical deletes (which prevented undoing mistakes). Content is only "confirmed abusive" when expunged now.
