Send to tools and User tools context

The "Pages that link to this item" only makes sense because it is a feed item-related query and you can only get the feed item's URL in the Send to tool context.

Also, note that the {%URL%} parameter means vastly different things when is it resolved in Send to tool context or the User tool context. In the Send to tool context {%URL%} resolves to the feed item's URL {%ITEM-METADATA% url}; in the User tool context {%URL%} resolves to the Channel Home URL {%CHANNEL-METADATA% homeUrl}.

Naming conventions

Since User tools are displayed vertically stacked within an Awasu menu and Send to tools are displayed typically displayed horizontally within Channel Summary Templates, I like to keep my Send to tool names short so that they will display nicely and my User tool names longer.
