I require (for a non-commerical learning site) a webpage that looks and feels exactly feels like the [url removed, login to view] home page.
The initial script must specifically ;
[url removed, login to view] portlet sections that can be dragged and dropped as smoothly and slickly as the [url removed, login to view] website page.
- that sections can be easily moved around and do not need an exact position for the drag facility to work - unlike other jquery examples that can be found around the web.
[url removed, login to view] the same CSS setup is needed; so that the mouse over of the dragable [top] part of each portlet is highlighted with the portlet border.
[url removed, login to view] portlets can be collapsed and expanded with the triangle at the top left of each portlet (next to the portlet title). The collapse and expand must be with the same slick (prototype) animation effect.
[url removed, login to view] two types of portlets are provided in the final delivery – one where there is an EDIT option and one without. The EDIT option (see BBC site for example) will animate a section opening up that will present check box options for that portlet.
[url removed, login to view] each section drag and drop it must save the portlet section position with a Classic ASP cookie (from an Ajax Call) so that on the next reload it will be positioned exactly how it was left.
Although the colours shown on the example attached document are green and magenta, the site must have CSS’s in the same way as the BBC site so that they can be tailored using the Customise this Page ptions:
Drag and Drop operation
The drag is easy to use for non-technical users, it highlights the area that it is coming from with a subtle grey area with white dotted border
And the moving of portlets to the new position shows the same subtle highlighted area.
Where a Drag operation is not completed it must return to the original position in the same animated tween effect as the current BBC site.
I will need an overview document explaining how the elements of the site has been put together so that I can understand it and change it where needbe - specifically the jquery/prototype functionality and how to adjust it if needbe (e.g. size, speed of drag, speed of drop, CSS details etc). I am a proficient Classic ASP coder so I do not need much about that.
This is not to be sold on or used in any commercial way so I think that means that if you need to use the actual BBC website CSS, JQuery etc then this will not compromise any license issues that they have. This is for a learning exercise.
The pages must be able to work on [primarily] Microsoft IE (8 and above) but also Firefox.
I suggest Classic ASP - but I am also happy for this to be in ASP.NET (C#) or PHP if this helps
