Select multiple records and drag
Happy to share, Jeff and all. Certainly feel free to include, Jerry. Hopefully others find it useful.
Andreas - Agreed. For this plugin I was able to utilize the list page "selected records" checkboxes, so unfortunately it wouldn't work for section editor field sorting. However, I do believe that capability is part of the multi-select drag/drop sorting wishlist item Dave wanted to look into.
Thanks again for this plugin. Do you mind if I offer some feedback? I don't want to sound ungrateful!
Lets say I have 2,000 items in my list and I want to move record 2000 to position 1
- The CMS is set to show 1000 items per page.
- Page 1 is showing records 2000-1001.
- I tick record 2000.
- The Move Record Here link appears.
- I click page 2 to show records 1000-1 but,
- Because I am now on a different page the checked record is no longer checked and the 'Move Record Here' does not appear.
Dave, is there a way to add an option for 'All Records' to the 'Per Page' drop down? If not, could you consider this for the next cmsB release?
Glad to hear it's getting some use, and I appreciate the feedback! I'd noted this as well and plan to have a think on it.
In the meantime, you can easily add values to the per page drop down list by modifying this:
Line 180 in latest CMSB v3.61
<?php echo getSelectOptions($metaData['perPage'], array(5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 250, 1000)); ?>
Just make note of the change for future cmsb upgrades.
Thanks, and please let me know of any other feedback!
Just following up on this. Can you tell me more about the situation where you need to change the order and have thousands of records? I want to get a better understanding of that to see if there's a solution that's better suited.
For everyone who was asking about improved multi-record drag sorting for the Section Editors, we've added that in the new beta. Come give it a try:
As always, thank you for your ongoing feedback, support and suggestions!
