Parent Pages Refactor Add-On

Refactor the structure of your pages in a given wiki web using a draggable/droppable interface. Easy-to-use and fast wapper of TWiki:Plugins/TreePlugin.

Why should I use it?

When the number of pages increases the maintenance os pages become really hard. Changing parents can be painfull yet necessary. Together with TreePlugin this plugin may be useful when organizing the structure.

What stage of development?

Pretty start, but already functional - I mean... starting... everything is working standalone (as the following video), but not yet integrated as a proper plugin or addon. Using ajax, can change parent nodes of a wiki page without problems.




The core code can be shown within a few code lines:

What needs to be done / risks

  • although the TWiki access works pretty fine, may be a problem if you have a lot admins with the possibility to keep changing parent nodes
  • Warning, important : changing parent nodes for TWiki related pages may cause problems ?? (WebHome, WebPreferences, etc) (need to be confirmed)
