Description

Because the admin settings page is already quite crowded, reorganize the UI as follows:

- Splitting each form / section into a separate page
- Defaulting to global forms / sections
- Making the left sidebar scroll so it's always in view on the page
- Setting sidebar section clicks to reload the page with that section / form
- Adding a Reporting section / form with a widget that provides a selection of formats for finding aids reports

Regarding documentation:

It's not critical - the screenshots in the settings page don't actually include all sections at once. However, an overview image and a quick intro to the sidebar navigation would be nice. Additionally, styling on the Save buttons for each page has been modified to conform with the rest of the application - so we could update those.

Looks good! Tested each of the menu tabs, and every page loads fine. Tested changing elements within each setting page and they seem to take effect as expected. Marking verified.

One future enhancement that would be nice - some indication in the sidebar menu about which menu item you currently have open. Not critical though.

Attaching sample screenshot for any public users who are curious to see what has been changed in advance of the next public release.
