Dividing zones into "child-zones" (5 posts)

    This plugin seems to be extremely useful in subdividing news content on a section by section basis. One of things I'm curious about is structuring content both horizontally and vertically. Right now it appears that this plugin is largely based around organizing posts vertically. I was curious if there might be an easy way to split zones up into sections to be displayed in a horizontal fashion.

    For example, consider this part of the bangordailynews.com. It would seem to be easier to make that entire section a zone that could be divided into subzones "A," "B" and "C." Stories could be dragged both vertically and horizontally from one subzone to another.

    Right now it looks like the sortable function used in this plugin does not connect lists together to share items horizontally. But that's just after taking a quick glance around the code. So I'm curious if there's a way to do this with the code as is, or if it would need adjusting or if there's another way entirely to do what I'm looking for that I'm not thinking about.

    Awesome plugin. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!

    Yep, moving and copying posts within zones has been on the list for some time now. Some of the code for has been written. Just need to be glued in via the UI and tested.

    Righteous. I checked out the github account for the project but there only exists a master branch. Can I pull the code that's been written so far from somewhere and take a crack at it?

    This is what I'm referring to in terms of "already written code": https://github.com/Automattic/zoninator/blob/master/zoninator.php#L642 -- it's not a lot, but feel free to work from that and send over a pull request.

    No worries. This is something I could definitely use so I'll get started it on asap.
