The final bits of GSoC

September 16, 2007

I am now considering finalized my work on the GSoC project (from now on call it voluntary work… ;)). After a lot of bug fixing and some documentation, I am releasing the 1.0 version of both NestedSortables jQuery plugins. Please, visit the plugins’ homepage to check out and comment on the documentation. I have compiled the scripts into compressed format and they are now about 75% smaller, and will download pretty fast.

After a lot of helpful comments from folks at the WP-Hackers list, I improved a few details in the WordPress page ordering. I also managed to fix all the remaining problems I mentioned in my last post (more about them later on), so I believe it is now ready to be rolled out in the development version. To try it out, you can check my sandbox (user: test / pass: test), download the development version of WordPress with it (up-to-date as of 19-Sep 2007 16-Sep-2007 WP from trunk), or apply it to your own working copy of WordPress from SVN trunk using this patch (you will probably also need this image, which I think can’t be included in the patch). I will submit the patch to the WordPress TRAC. I hope it gets reviewed and accepted.

First showcase of page sorting in WordPress

September 3, 2007

I have finished the integration of the nested sortable widget into WordPress. I have set up a Sandbox WordPress installation, which can be accessed here (use test/test for login, go to “Manage->Pages”, and click “Edit Page Order” in the end of the page list). I have also put up a diff file (untested), which can be applied to your WordPress SVN checkout if you want to try it out on your own instalation (Automattic folks, don’t apply this yet to the WordPress SVN, there are a few details left to be solved, such as compressing the JS code and others, as I explain bellow).
