Doesn't work for NewDiscussion Module

    There are numerous modules that might never be shown because they belong to not activated plugins/addons or will not be rendered in the panel.

    Since the method I posted doesn't look if the addons are enabled or not, this is not an issue. If there is a php file with module in the name but not views, this will pick it up.

    And from the UX aspect, I think it would be horrible. Presenting a long list of text to sort the modules is a burden, not a help. It would be easier to pick them separately if needed.

    I agree.

    The only nice interface for sorting modules I could think of, would be to load a javascript with each page that attaches a handler to each module so that the order in the DOM is changed (this way giving a direct visually feedback) and which writes the current order in the config.

    When I was thinking on this problem (before this addon was released), I was going to have an "edit" mode for admins. They could visit any page and drag/drop modules for sorting. They could also press a little x to delete them. This would be only a little difficult since you can get the list of modules directly from the assets object. The biggest problem would be making it work for many themes.

    That is exactly what I was thinking. Because drag and drop would be better done in the dashboard where the theme is constant. So there would be a settings page that mirrored the front side except without the theme. There you could move them however you wanted and see what they look like. Like WP widgets
