Where is Drap n Drop ordering documentation in Joomla ?

Post by sayfrndship » Sun Sep 18, 2016 10:14 am

Hi All,

I tried what ever I could , but due to lack of drag n drop ordering documentation. I could not even complete my custom build component order saving.

Can any one write down all steps need to perform addition of this drap n drop ordering with saving to database.
OR
can provide any link where I can read and understand properly this functionality,

I have completed upto icons being appeared. ordering column is in DB.

Regards

Hi, I think, in case, there is no documentation, the best way is to see some core component and copy the features for the drag and drop ordering :idea:
- Phoca Gallery - powerful image gallery - http://www.phoca.cz/phocagallery/
- Phoca Restaurant Menu - http://www.phoca.cz/restaurantmenudemo/
- Phoca Cart - e-commerce platform for Joomla!
- Phoca Download - download manager for Joomla!

I have mentioned that I did all possible way, so was one possible to look into core components, but I can't even figure it out. I am wonder why documentation has not included this important topic and they are launching new releases with incomplete documentation

I think, this is caused by not enough volunteers writing technical documentation. The task of core development team is to do working product, which Joomla! is. And if there is no volunteer who will write technical documentation (for developers), unfortunately, there is no way to somehow solve it as Joomla! is community driven project. :-(

Then I must consider myself as volunteer to dig into joomla more and write documenation for it. If I let suppose write documentation, I know it is open source, but I dont think anyone has spare time to spend with out any advantage. what will be advantage to me for writing docs.

Writing documentation is the best way how to learn perfectly something you write about.

As I wrote, everything is based on volunteers. Without them, there will be no Joomla!

For example:

- if you find a bug in Joomla! and you report it to core developers, it will help the project but it will help even you. Because it will be fixed in next version.
- if you write documentation for something and somebody will learn it and write great extension based on your documentation so then you can take advantages from such extension. I by myself write my own extensions but I use extensions from other developers too. So it could happen, than I have answered some post in this forum and it helped some developer to build some extension which I use now.

It is always about how you see the point. If new competitor comes to town, you can see advantages and disadvantages for yourself:

disadvantage: he/she will get your customers
advantage: you will have motivation to be better and maybe your services and products will be more better then and you will get more customers

Or you just will have good feeling when you will help with documentation and this will influence positively your work. Hard to say, this is more a philosophical question so the answer will be the same :idea:
