#26440 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Appearance Themes: Use text to open theme details instead of an icon

The "i" icon when opening theme details is a bit vague and probably not the best use of the information icon. There was some concern it could be lost in translation, especially since it is being used as a primary action, versus a simple visual next to a notice (for example).

After a long conversation in IRC involving many (log), as well as feedback from some translators (link), we're going to go with text here, instead of an icon. Something like "theme details".
