Description

On tiki-admin.php?page=look, the "Fixed width" checkbox appears under both the "Theme" and "Layout" tab. But the input for the width appears on the second tab only. In the code comment, I see that the rationale is that this checkbox is important so it should be under the first tab to be quickly visible, but I think it would be more logical to have it only under the second tab, where it logically belongs. Arguably, setting the layout - basic bootstrap, classic Tiki, classic Bootstrap - is as important as setting fixed with or fluid width, but we don't put these under the first tab.

If the fixed-width admin form parts were complete under both tabs, I wouldn't be bothered so much, but the first tab has only the checkbox, so the admin sees that first "because it's important" but doesn't see where to specify the width because the input is not displayed together with the checkbox. If/when the admin goes to the second tab, then there's the input for the width. I think if we assume the input can be found there (and it should be since this is the "Layout" tab), then we should assume the checkbox can also be found there, and so there's no need for one under the first tab.
