.@pimoore To answer your question (now that I've settled down), you were correct. Click the New Plugin button, name it whatever you like, paste in the repository URL and go. All the plugins can actually be controlled via custom theme files (with the exception of being able to remove the menu entry from files in the
content directory and the favicon file output formats).
