Syahir – custom work?

    Are you as proficient with jquery as you are with graphene? I’d like to hire you for some custom jquery work on my plugin, Ultimate Tinymce.

    Basically, I’m attempting to implement a drag and drop system where buttons can be visually arranged in four rows, mimicking the editor.

    I know Ozz has done it with Tinymce Advanced, but I don’t want to look at his code because I swore an oath to keep Ultimate Tinymce unique.

    Anyways, here is what I currently have:

    1. All css is written and in place (might have to be modified with new jquery).

    2. Basic html structure is written.

    3. The javascript file is written, and working.

    I can currently drag and drop icons into placeholders. But I have no idea how to parse this data into an array (ajax, I guess) and to have it interact with the database so custom arrangements are both saved on page refresh AND applied to the appropriate mce_buttons filter.

    Soo… might you be interested? Or do you think I should post this on one of the wp job forums, and if so, which one is a reputable one?

    Thanks!

    Depends on what sort of jQuery implementation you’d like. Generally, jQuery is easier to work with compared to plain old javascript.

    When you reorder the positioning of icons into placeholders, the jQuery script also rearranges the HTML code for those icons. From then on, it should be PHP handling that data and saving it into database. It’ll be just like handling any other form data.

    You can look at how the Graphene theme achieves this for the Top Bar social media icons. The data processing is handled in admin/options-validator.php.

    That’s not the open-source spirit. If the code works well enough, why reinvent the wheel? Competition is good, but only if the end results of it is better implementation of things. The very essence of adopting the open source philosophy is to allow the sharing of inventions and innovations, so that others may build upon those and improve it. It’s much more efficient than reinventing the wheel all the time.

    PS: You know you can always shoot me an email for things like this rather than posting on the forum, right?

    I appreciate how you take the time to explain coding ethics, as well as other helpful suggestions. This is a hobby to me, rather than a profession. And I learn a great deal from you. Thank you.

    I would still rather have some of your personal attention with this. I feel it’s a strong plugin, and this added functionality is going to be beneficial in a lot of ways, both to myself and to the end users. It’s just that it’s slightly over my learning curve at the moment.

    I’ll send you an email.
