I need your opinion on this:
I am working on a mix between the toolman functions, some xajax and of course the category/forum admin.
Now I ran in to the following issue:
When I allow to move all elements freely then this can happen:
User drags the first category somewhere down and leaves the forums of this category on top.
Now, if xajax immediately saves this state then we have orphaned forums. This is illegal I think.
So, while moving categories without their forums across can be good if you want to assign other forums to it but it can not be a valid state.
This means I will have to introduce a submit button.
The other option:
I group the categories with their forums and only allow to move the forums inside their categories, and the categories as a whole, including their forums, between each other.
This way it would be assured that we always have a valid state and we could use xajax - but it would disable the possibility to move forums to other categories.
So, which one do you think makes more sense?
Or does anybody have a really clever ideas how to solve this?
