Managing post type improvements

The organization of the manage post type interface is not intuitive to anyone except our team (since we know where everything is and what it does). Even though there are descriptions along with each item, the list is so long and disorganized it's hard to find what you need or even see what you can do. 

Here is my proposed change to the organization of the manage post type interface. I think it would look really good if all the sections were collapsed except for the post type title and structure (kind of like it is now, but more sections). The sections would be (titles can be changed):

  • Post type title
  • Structure
  • Post display settings
  • Customize field titles within the editor
  • Email settings
  • Navigation term settings
  • Access Control

Related to this, is tumblr considered social media? 

We have a page where the staff wanted to put a link to a tumblr page (and a facebook page). I was thinking of enabling the Social Media block, but it's a landing page ( ) using the standard template, which I don't want to mess up. Also, we want to link to the appropriate tumblr and facebook, rather than have buttons for people to "like" or share.

How do other people handle tumblr?
