Post your suggestions here ;)
Check all for checkboxes is handy on massive admin pages. http://drupal.org/node/88378 . There are issues with JS , I already showed them to him. Collapsible blocks. Drag-and-drops block admin interface.
Checkboxes for admin pages should probably be integrated into a new #type => table for forms/render API.
nice lists of ideas btw very sexy :d
I kinda like new google style search made avaliable API to integrate
I am not sure jquery livesearch can strech as much as google above but it can be improvement as an option replacement to current Drupal search
another method is also interesting- live 'search' filter
filtering can be useful both admin backend and the user frontend
just an idea for your suggestions call :)
theese would be coooool.....
someone already did it! yay!
I was looking jquery 'livefilter' plugin instead of prototype.js which is used demo above
i came cross example of 'live' table sorting by mother russia
i also found it interesting idea to adopt for Drupal when tables matter
There is small but very useful User Interface toggle option feature viewing the content on Yahoo News
View: Headlines Only | Include Summaries | Include Photos
this feature can be useful for example on drupal.org
i.e projects/modules its good there are so many modules but also it needs some UI improvement where user can have option to view
- the titles (headlines) | summaries (excerpt) | Include Photos (say..in case of dowload/themes)
indeed any Drupal site would benefit from this feature
I dont have .js skills, I thought I should put the example forward here for your opinion
here are the .js's on Yahoo page, but i am not sure which .js relevant to this (that shows my limited/no knowledge of .js :)
also while i was looking if there is some Jquery examples may have simlar soluition, i found this
which is very nice and i presume can be extended to options like on Yahoo
Headlines Only | Include Summaries | Include Photos (toggle) option on each bar
I apologise for the duplicate.. could you delete it please if you have permisions
There is small but very useful User Interface toggle option on Yahoo News
My issue is for imagefield and imagecache modules which are great (IMO) replacement for image.module in most cases.
JQuery's job is to provide user-friendly interface to get crop/scale parameters for further image processing. Something like this (Prototype & script.aculo.us).
Now waiting for dopry's response for details.
I think this is very important for drupal usabilty.
as a perfect example foe a simple WYSWYG editor for me, the editor used in http://www.vox.com
Apparently this editor is moving towards using JQuery as the backend.
Discussed in some detail at
and briefly yesterday at
I'm no big fan of WYSWYG editors, but this one looks a little different.
Automatic form field focus as in my focus module but for FormAPI (core): '#focus' => TRUE.
'#focus' => TRUE
Permission for editing taxonomy could be uncoupled from node admin permissions. We are facing that particular problem with taxonomy_user.module, that allows per user tags on nodes. Also, AJAX taxonomy on the fly would be a huge step towards a del.icio.us style tagging functionality.
There is taxonomy on the fly for taxonomy_user module now and there is coming down the pipe the same thing for community tags.
Have any of you guys checked this out yet? http://thinkature.com/
Can we do something like this in jquery?
Ouch, that is cool.
Was wanting something like that recently, when I was reviewing a book page on our intranet.
Like the post-it stickers in Acrobat Reader or Photoshop - a great tool for collaborative online work.
This is a great tool! It would be nice to create something like that in jquery as it would help a lot.
Oh, I see you already got the answer. Never mind then.
I guess every developer has heard of the firebug plugin for Firefox
Well, It can also be emdedded directly in websites for use within IE or Safari etc
Which got me to thinking [but not actually doing, as I'm not a developer per se :-) ]
Why not a firebug module for Drupal?
In some ways, the parts are there...
The color chooser for Garland lets a user edit the CSS for a webpage dynamically.
Firebug, is thankfully still free.
So is this a pie in the sky idea, or could it be done?
It looks like Steve took the hint
i had to do a few adjustments to firebug lite itself. My version will be included with the module. I added some jQuery goodness to it and am still ironing out a few things.
Firebug Lite was made kinda weird vs all the jQuery stuff we do.
Should launch the module officially soon.
keybindings. link keystrokes to firing functions, executing redirects, etc. then let users customize them, make profiles like the way you can customize a shell. make a shell for devel. (http://rikrikrik.com/jquery/shortkeys/)
For example a devel keybinding
ctrl+shift+c - clears the cache
ctrl+shift+v - pops the variable viewer up in a popup
ctrl+shift+q - toggles the query viewer
ctrl+shift+u - masquerade as another user, popup for username appears
ctrl+shift+e - goes to edit page of current node
ctrl+shift+n - goes to admin node screen
ctrl+shift+u - goes to user profile of current user
I wonder about the actual usefulness, but might be in some cases.
yes! steven put in a lot of thought a year+ ago on this topic. see http://drupal.org/node/23628.
Allow admins to choose which keys they want!
Provide a list of actions such as those above and then allow entry of the key to trigger. Settings page would look like:
Then there could be a hook_hotkeys() that would allow other modules to define hotkey actions for their modules. Oh... and we could call this Hotkeys module.
Other actions that I'd love to see:
- Save (draft of) node
- Jump to page (menu, access, admin, users, nodes). (oh that's above)
I'm sure other modules would have actions to add:
- Add user as a buddy
- Bookmark this page
- Vote/Rate this (keys 1 through 5 ala iTunes)
Also keep in mind that hotkeys might not be the only way to trigger these actions. Some could be triggered on a timer (like saving draft version of editing node). Should we look at the actions module for ideas?

Brainstorming about keystrokes here: http://groups.drupal.org/node/2629
I put my file at http://code.google.com/p/js-hotkeys/ you may grab it from there
thats good stuff. thanks.
I recently reviewed a patch which made the permissions page a bit easier to use by checking and disabling the implied permissions. If authenticated user has a permission, then it is implied for all other roles; if anonymous user has a permission, it is implied for everyone.
I'd like to see a more generic approach. Maybe a #onclick property which can change the value and disabled properties of other elements.
I could see this being used in many small places around Drupal.
permissions granted to anon are not necessarily granted to any other role. your assumption about authenticted is right on though.
The original patch I read actually did that.
What is a specific case where it would make sense to not grant a permission, which is given to anonymous users, for everyone?
i admit that i don't usually do that but i do create pages that are available only to anon. in general, authenticated users can have such a different experience on a site that you might want certain modules/sections available only for anon in order to customize their experience.
it is cool if the patch you describe checks these boxes since thats what you normally want. it just shouldn't force this configuration.
Spent awhile trying to get sliders to work with forms API & scriptaculous last August, never got it.
Thanks for asking. Would love more/easier slider support for use in forms.
See all hot content.
