Feature request - Ability to copy/cut/paste items,etc... to a different module

Reported by dleffler | December 17th, 2011 @ 05:26 AM

Based on current work paradigms, you'd expect to be able to move things around by some sort of copy/cut/paste operation. The same would apply to pages, modules, and items. Some of the functionality already exists:

  • Pages - we can already easily move pages around and send them to standalone (recycle bin) and restore them. However, there is no way to copy pages, unless we'd resurrect the old pagesets code.
  • Modules - we can somewhat cut/paste modules by removing them to the recycle bin and then adding a module and pulling it from the recycle bin. However, there is currently no way to see everything in the recycle bin, unless you do it one module type at a time. Again, no way to copy a module (settings/configuration?)
  • Items - we can only delete items, there is no recycle bin or any sort of copy/cut/paste operation. There is a hacked text module template that allows you to move text items from one module to another though.
