Widget and Zone management on Frontend

Oct 29, 2010 at 10:30 AM

Hi,

Do you think about implemented a drag&drop feature to move easily widget on different zone of the page ? 
May be it can be good to display all the existing zone of a theme ? 

Regards

Not for the moment: we are focusing on delivering the 1.0 platform in January. After 1.0, that is one of the many things we could do, or it could also be contributed by somebody from outside the core team. As to you r second question, I'm not sure I understand it. we are displaying all the existing zones of the active themes.

For the 2nd question I mean display frame border and may be name of the zone. 

Un peu comme dans DNN ou sharepoint, pour voir les zones existantes et y rajouter des widgets. Je n'ai pas précisé mais je parle ici du mode admin.

Merci,Thank

Ah, yes. Something we talked about but didn't have time to set up yet was to add to the widget admin screen a simple image that shows a thumbnail of the site with the different zones highlighted. The image would be something that theme authors would generate. Does that sound like something that would work?
