Bug Description

Mahara 15.10+

When you set up a new forum and click into the "Forum settings", you are supposed to be able to use the radio buttons provided to decide where to put the forum in relation to the existing ones. However, the alignment is off (see screenshot).

It's supposed to look something like: http://manual.mahara.org/en/15.04/_images/forum_add_2.png

Right now in Mahara 15.10 it's very hard to know what this setting is actually about.

Actually the issue here is not (only) css related but is a coding error.

The description text 'Choose where you want the forum to be ordered compared to the other forums' is a bit confusing.

What it should say is something like

Choose what position you want this forum to appear on the forum list

Also it is a bit confusing having the radio buttons in between the names of existing forums to indicate the place. It would be neater if we had just labels on the radio buttons like so:

0 at the top
0 after {1st forum name}
0 after {2nd forum name}
0 after {3rd forum name}
... etc ...
0 after {last forum name}
