What is it?
We often set up website administration pages where site owners need to control the order in which content items on a public website page are displayed. The setting or modification of the sort order of a list of items is made simple using our drag-and-drop sort order technology.
How does it work?
See for yourself. Instructions are in the boxes below...
Sorting a List Demonstration
(In the list below, move your mouse over an item in the list,
hold down the left mouse button, and move the item up or down.)
|Six pair of Don Alversos tweezers|
|Seven thousand Macedonians in full battle array|
|Eight brass monkeys from the ancient sacred crypts of Egypt|
|Nine apathetic, sympathetic, diabetic, old men on roller skates with a marked propensity towards procrastination and sloth|
|Ten lyrical, spherical diabolical denizens of the deep who hall stall around the corner of the quo of the quay of the quivery, all at the same time.|
This functionality could be built into an administration page for your site, where you could modify the sort order of items to be displayed in one of your public website pages.
By the way, this particular list has a history. It's called the "announcer's test". It originated at Radio Central New York in the early 1940's as a cold reading test given to prospective radio talent to demonstrate their speaking ability. In the 60's Jerry Lewis popularized a variation of this list on the Tonight Show. It's not only a speaking ability test, but it can be used as a memory test as well.
Again, this functionality could be built into an admin page for your site, and could control the positioning of items that you might have in a grid or a table in one of your public web pages — like this one
, for example.
