Sortable Grid Views Plugin - screencast

Have you ever thought sorting nodes by Content: Post date (desc) or Node: Title (asc) just didn't cut it? Ever wanted to sort a view in a freestyle kinda way? Sortable Grid Views Plugin will let you do just that.

This screencast covers the Sortable Grid Views Plugin for a Drupal 6 installation. But sgrid works just about the same for a Drupal 7 installation. This is how projects are sorted in my Portfolio.

Here is the list of modules you will need:

  • Views 6.x-3.0-alpha4
  • jQuery UI 6.x-1.5
  • jQuery plugin version > 1.7.x
  • jQuery Update 6.x-2.0-alpha1
  • Sgrid 6.x-1.x-dev

Very good plug in.

Any chance you can post an example somewhere?

Really nice screencast! Thx.

Thank you for this screencast. I'm wondering why you needed to create two pages? Can't the sort work on the first page and be saved?

The 2 pages are by design. By that I mean that's just the way the module was conceived. Draggable views, which came first, is conceived that way: separate views are required for sorting and displaying. AFAIK, that's what we have for Drupal 6. In Drupal 7, Media Gallery combines both functionalities into a single page.
