Use jQuery for WP's list manipulation
|Reported by:||mdawaffe||Owned by:||mdawaffe|
All that adding, deleting, and "dimming" stuff we do with Prototype should be rewritten for jQuery.
And here it is.
Attached is a patch that reworks the list manipulation stuff to be more markup based than JS based. Specific classes and ids are given to lists, list items, deletors, dimmers and adders which the wpLists jQuery plugin then finds and initializes.
Since a complete description of the markup involved would be rather lengthy, I have also attached a plugin (dependent on files found in the patch) that adds a Top Level "WPLists" menu item with documentation and examples.
The tests from the plugin work in the Firefox, Safari and Opera.
WordPress itself uses WPLists in fairly complicated ways is some places. Currently, those complicated pieces have only been tested in Firefox.
- Test in IE
- Bring back JS "Are You Sures?". This will require #4459 to be done "properly".
- Bring back success messages ("X added").
