Large Issue - Reorder Articles

Postby lking » Tue Feb 01, 2011 12:47 pm

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to make this issue for the user.

I have customer where they have a very large issue they are about to publish. They a working on the order of the articles all 400 of them and haven't found an easy way to re-order the articles in there various sections.

The only way they have found to do this is by using the up and down arrow keys to the far right of the screen. Is there a quicker and easy way to reorder all these articles rather than having to click through each one of them and move it up or down to its appropriate spot?

Hi lking,

Having to use the up and down arrows for so many articles would take a lot of time. In the newest versions of OJS (2.3.3-3 for sure, and I'd assume 2.3.4 too) you can 'drag-and-drop' articles or issues into whatever order you want. This would be a lot faster for you.
