[resolved] Nav item reorder conflict (5 posts)

    I'm having a strange conflict with another plugin, Simple Files, http://www.simpleintranet.org/simple-files/.

    When BPGE and Simple Files are installed and I try to reorder the nav items in Extras, multiple gray boxes (highlight li?) are drawn on (and written to) the page.

    As soon as I click a menu item and drag to reorder the page starts to fill with the gray boxes and the nav items are pushed around the page. It's very strange. A page refresh brings everything back to normal, but the nav items are never reordered.

    I assume this is an Ajax conflict of some sort. Any ideas on where I can start to troubleshoot this? At this point I'd like to keep both plugins installed.

    Somebody needs to fix css :) Either him or me. I will make more abstract classes for css, but can't say when exactly - lots of other work right now.

    I have created a task here https://github.com/slaFFik/BP-Groups-Extras/issues/18

    Yeah, I didn't know the source of the issue so no finger-pointing here. BPGE was just unlucky enough to exhibit the problem.

    If you want access to a test site to see the problem first hand just let me know.

    I think I found the root of the issue, but can't say for sure. I went through your plugin and renamed as many classes and ids I could find that might conflict with Simple Files, but the problem persisted.

    I noticed that both plugins are using jQuery UI for dragging and sorting. jQuery UI from Simple Files was loading on the groups pages, even though it wasn't being implemented via shortcode. Maybe the two versions of jQuery UI are conflicting?

    I installed Plugin Organizer and stopped Simple Files from loading on group pages. It doesn't work on them anyway. Since I did that sorting works as expected in BGPE.

    Hope that helps.
