  • Ticket #17070 – Description

    initial v4  
    11While doing testing of jQuery 1.5.2 for ticket #16426 (I was comnparing how things worked with the included versions of jQuery and jQuery UI in 3.0.5, 3.1.1, and 3.2-bleeding r17614 to how things worked with jQuery 1.5.2 in 3.2-bleeding r17614), I encountered an issue with not being able to drag metaboxes in IE 8 or IE 9 on Windows 7 64-bit.  I was able to reproduce this on two different computers with WP 3.0.5, WP 3.1.1, and latest trunk version (r17614).  Here's what I encountered in each version for each of the browsers above. 
    22 
    3 In a fresh install of WP 3.0.5 with no plugins and the default theme (with jQuery 1.4.2 and jQuery UI 1.7.3) in IE 8 the metaboxes on the dashboard are movable just fine, but when dragging the metaboxes on the edit/new screens for posts, links, and pages the outline for where to drop a metabox is either slow at appearing, if it appears at all. 
     3WP 3.0.5 + jQuery 1.4.2 + jQuery UI 1.7.3 - dashboard metaboxes are movable in IE 8 
    44 
    5 In a fresh install of WP 3.0.5 with no plugins and the default theme (with jQuery 1.4.2 and jQuery UI 1.7.3) in IE 9 the metaboxes on the dashboard as well as the edit/new screens for posts, links, and pages can't be dragged at all. 
     5WP 3.0.5 + jQuery 1.4.2 + jQuery UI 1.7.3 - metaboxes on edit/new posts, links, and pages screens outline showing where to drop is slow if it shows at all in IE 8 
    66 
    7 In a fresh install of WP 3.1.1 with no plugins and the default theme (with jQuery 1.4.4 and jQuery UI 1.8.9) in IE 8 the metaboxes on the dashboard and the edit/new screen for links work just fine.  However, when dragging metaboxes on the edit/new screens for post and pages the dragging is slow to start and slow to move the metaboxes.  Furthermore, the outline for where to drop a metabox is either slow at appearing, if it appears at all. 
     7WP 3.0.5 + jQuery 1.4.2 + jQuery UI 1.7.3 - no metaboxes are draggable in IE 9 
    88 
    9 In a fresh install of WP 3.1.1 with no plugins and the default theme (with jQuery 1.4.4 and jQuery UI 1.8.9) in IE 9 the metaboxes on the dashboard cannot be dragged.   Furthermore, in IE 9 with WP 3.1.1, you can reorder metaboxes in the right column and you can drag metaboxes from right to left.  However, you cannot drag metaboxes from the left column and you cannot reorder metaboxes on the left column.  Also, when you attempt to drag a metabox from the left column, you end up with a second ghost metabox that is also not draggable. 
     9WP 3.1.1 + jQuery 1.4.4 + jQuery UI 1.8.9 and WP 3.2-bleeding + jQuery 1.4.4 + jQuery UI 1.8.9 and WP 3.2-bleeding + jQuery 1.5.2 + jQuery UI 1.8.9 (and jQuery 1.8.11) - dashboard and edit/new links metaboxes are movebable in IE 8

    11 In a fresh install of WP 3.2-bleeding at r17614 with no plugins and the default theme (with jQuery 1.4.4 and jQuery 1.8.9) in IE 8 the metaboxes on the dashboard and the edit/new screen for links work just fine.  However, when dragging metaboxes on the edit/new screens for post and pages the dragging is slow to start and slow to move the metaboxes.  Furthermore, the outline for where to drop a metabox is either slow at appearing, if it appears at all.

     17As a side note, I did try adding in the code that I discovered was causing the problem for #16955 to ui.sortable.js and it made no difference in what I am encountering in IE 8 and IE 9.
