    Ajaxify admin – Final week 

    Yesterday my modifications were commited to Core (I was made a guest commiter), so I guess my work here is done. Or is it just beginning? 🙂

    I hope everyone gets the chance to finish what they set out to do. Good luck!

    Ajaxify Admin – Week 11 

    Ajaxifying the bulk actions dropdown turned out to be far from straightforward, so I dropped it, since it’s too close to final evaluation to get it right.

    So, I’m doing a final sweep before my IRC presentation on monday. After that, I’ll try to get in touch with the 3.org teams to see if I can be of any help there.

    Hi, just got back in the trenches. Should have bulk actions ajaxified by this week.

    Ajaxify Admin – Week 9 

    This week I got rid of the link category management screen, in favor of the standard edit-tags.php one.

    I’ve also fixed a few bugs and shuffled code around in preparation of ajaxifying the Bulk Actions dropdown.

    I’ve discovered that not all screens will support this, because when deleting users, for example, you are taken to a confirmation screen first.

    I won’t have my laptop with me next week (going to the seaside), but I promise to catch up when I get back.

    Ajaxify Admin – Week 8 

    This was kind of a slow week for my project. I’ve tied up some loose ends in preparation for the midterm review.

    On the bright side, I’ve made some plugin releases. 🙂

    Ajaxify Admin – Week 7 

    Did some more refactoring this week; fixed some bugs. Basically, the two goals I had at the start have been achieved already:

    • enable sorting
    • ajaxified sorting, searching & pagination

    Since it’s not even mid-term yet, I’ve decided to also go for ajaxifying the bulk actions on each screen and fix some nasty URL problems in the process.

    Ajaxify Admin – Week 6 

    My project has steadily transformed into a quest to clean up the code on all list-type screens in the admin.

    By now, each table is almost entirely driven by it’s own class. Still, there’s a lot of beautfying and bugfixing to be done.

    Ajaxify Admin – Week 5 

    Finished ajaxifying the rest of the screens.

    Also added an overlay while the items are loading.

    I still need to ajaxify specific controls on each screen (filter links, dropdowns etc.).

    Some feedback from the UI team would be good at this point. To test:

    1. Download the WP files (or checkout via svn).
    2. Install normally
    3. In wp-config.php add these two lines:

    define('STYLE_DEBUG', true);
    define('SCRIPT_DEBUG', true);

    Ajaxify Admin – Week 4 

    Ajaxified the following screens: comments, ms-sites, ms-users, plugins. I’ve marked the remaining screens on the project page.

    Also did lots of code refactoring this week and will probably continue.

    Ajaxify Admin – Week 3 

    I’ve managed to ajaxify the posts page and the users page (pagination, sorting and search).

    I’m now at the uploads screen, where the code is a little hairier.
