Drupal UI improvement

First of all Drupal administration UI is different, not all bad, but definitely different.  It has a clean look & feel to it but there is not a logical placement of where to edit things, etc… Compared to Joomla UI is doesn’t stack up, but on the good side it actually works much better then Joomla or DotNetNuke (whose admin UI also takes a while to get used to).  Maybe it’ll grow on me or at least I’ll understand their logic.

I was racking my brain trying to figure out how to enable the forums in the navigation section.  I could clearly see where it was disabled but couldn’t for the life of me figure out where to enable it.

Here is the UI of it:

Clearly it’s disabled, right?  Turns out although the checkbox looks disabled, in reality to turn it on you are suppose to select it anyway’s. Come on guys, things that look disabled are suppose to act disabled.
