    jQuery Sortable drag & drop interface to allow the client to manage on-page features. The number in the white box is to allow the user to assign an item count to each feature. Live in-browser render.

    Ok - so how did you think about implementing this?

    I wanted to create a Safecracker template that gave the client more control to build custom page layouts, not just page content editing, but assignment of "widgets" on a per-page basis. I've done something similar with select lists in the past, but it was clunky and unfriendly to use.

    With this, the client can build pages as they like. Later, I'll add in a sub-section that will allow them to choose categories for the "latest" widgets so they can customise even further.

    It's been a lot of work to get to this stage, and frankly a miracle that it works so well, but I now have a re-usuable system that I can apply to other sites, so worth the effort so far.

    should definitely blog about the approach. I love stuff like this.
