Drag and drop board management

I think this would be pretty neat, see attached. The picture should be pretty descriptive - to move boards in the admin panel, you just drag and drop them to where you want them then hit save at the end when you're done to save everything.

(For those who are concerned about accessibility, the current method is horrible for accessibility as it is. Making a nice JS front end doesn't change that, really.)


I'd also appreciate seeing this developed. In fact I think I mentioned a similar request in your own portal 'suggestions box'.


Doing it for the portal is one thing, doing it for all SMF boards is something very, very different.

(I know only too well. That picture isn't a mockup.)

Until they make it part of SMF, maybe a mod would be good.
I know I'd be one of the first to download it, Arantor. :)

This is one of the best ideas I've seen in a long time.
One that I totally agree should be part of SMF.



Not for SMF it hasn't. Yet, anyway.


I hope we'll see this in 2.x series.

Fella looks Google Translate spam :)


2.0 no, 2.1 unlikely. It isn't just a case of slapping jQuery UI on it. ;)


Would defiantly like to see this (especially since it looks like organising child boards is simple!).

Any news on this?
Would be absolutely fantastic.

There are far more important things for us to be implementing in 2.1.


If there's actually a list of features to be introduced in 2.1, this should be #7 on the list!

Its a very cool feature everyone would love!


There isn't a list and the amount of code required to make the above work is actually scary, having done it once before already >_<


And this is not very important, not that we reorder boards every day.
Save time for important stuff, Sir.


yeah...you guys are probably right...

I'd say you scratch it off (if ever you had it in mind...lol) then focus on more important stuffs!

I'm confused, seems you started the topic suggesting it be a feature, but then later in the topic you don't seem to be for it all that much anymore.

I think it would be cool, but totally unnecessary.


The timing is important, as is the scope; look at the dates in question and then factor in 1) when I joined the team, 2) the amount of stuff on the Bug Reports board, Mantis and Github listed as 'to do'...


Oh, Aug. - Dec. I see, lol...

Make sense now. Don't know if I have said it before, but I was really glad when I first read you had joined the team.

I for one really like reading your post, especially when they are replies to my topics. You simply tell it like it is. You are very knowledgeable and to the point without any BS.



It definitely doesn't seem necessary for 2.1.
