#12722 new defect (bug)

Concurrent editing of widgets

Reported by: josephscott Owned by: azaozz
Milestone: Future Release Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Widgets Keywords: has-patch 3.7-early
Focuses: Cc:


When two admin users edit widgets at the same time which ever one saves last wins. I think we'd need something like the post edit lock to be able warn users when someone else is already editing widgets.

  • Keywords has-patch added; needs-patch removed
  • Milestone changed from Future Release to 3.6

the gift of 3.2-early keeps on giving, and I think this is a great fit for the editing / locking / autosave vibes of this release.

I attached a first run at this. I had to write some JS to make the lock messages stay in tune with the sortable / draggable widget block things, but this overall widget-locking concept wasn't wildly complicated to implement

This is cool. Obviously too late for 3.6 now, but would be great for 3.7. Needs to be re-coded to leverage the heartbeat and probably an abstraction of some of the new locking code.
