Nice to have feature.
It is cumbersome when wanting to change a island that is inserted in a forum to find them.
Or to figure out what islands are currently being used in forums.
They do not show up on the layout page and there is no indication what islands are being used in which forums.

So you end up just scrolling every forum to find a island you want to change if they even have one.
Then goto forum details to find the name of the island then goto custom islands to make the change.

So I am asking for something to figure out what islands are in use and where.
For example
In the custom islands page there would be plenty of room to add a column named Custom Island Insert
and in the rows show the forum they are in.
Plus possibly a indicator to show all islands which are in use whether they be side or insert islands.

The forum island insert is generally used to display ads between the first and second posts in a thread; and where there is currently no indication which islands are currently utilized and where, you can use an SQL query to...

Show all forums using a forum island insert (any island):
SQL Query
SELECT `FORUM_TITLE`, `FORUM_ID` FROM `ubbt_FORUMS` WHERE `FORUM_ISLAND_INSERT`!='0' ORDER BY `FORUM_TITLE` ASC


Show all forums using a specific forum island insert (island 1):
SQL Query
SELECT `FORUM_TITLE`, `FORUM_ID` FROM `ubbt_FORUMS` WHERE `FORUM_ISLAND_INSERT`='1' ORDER BY `FORUM_TITLE` ASC


Update the forum island insert for a specific forum (island 1, forum 5):
SQL Query
UPDATE `ubbt_FORUMS` SET `FORUM_ISLAND_INSERT` = '1' WHERE `FORUM_ID` = '5';


Update the forum island insert for specific forums (island 1, forum 5, 6, 8):
SQL Query
UPDATE `ubbt_FORUMS` SET `FORUM_ISLAND_INSERT` = '1' WHERE (`FORUM_ID` = '5' OR `FORUM_ID` = '6' OR `FORUM_ID` = '8');


Clear the forum island insert for a specific forum (forum 5):
SQL Query
UPDATE `ubbt_FORUMS` SET `FORUM_ISLAND_INSERT` = '0' WHERE `FORUM_ID` = '5';

Thanks but
This is the suggestion forum.
I was suggesting a management tool to find them easier.

Sql query works and I have used it but it is still cumbersome switching between multiple pages to get to the objective.

What happens at least in my case.
I may have 100 custom islands and have only 20 active at a time switching them in and out for specific reasons.
Such as holidays specials sales or current events
So it gets hard determining if say a custom island is in use or not and where it is being used.
Or used in multiple locations.

Or my observation is most users create/add a island then add another island.
So they end up with most islands do not work correctly.
Since there is no way to delete a island in the cp they end up with many islands that are not even being used.

Oh another request allow to delete a island!
