Consolidate add item form workflow to one form via ajax and other modifications

Reported by Walter McGinnis | October 28th, 2008 @ 10:21 AM | in 1.2

Currently when you use the "add item" link, you must choose a type of item, then submit that form, then if it is a topic you have to choose topic type, then fill out the actual content based form.

This work, though dependent on ajax, should fall back to accessible functionality.

We would like this changed to be much more streamlined:

  • rather than have separate links for adding to site basket or the specific basket you are in, have only one "add item" link in header menu bar and add form input where a user first choose's from the baskets they may add to "choose type" form

  • after choosing the type of item they want add, use ajax and partials to update the form to be appropriate to type (i.e. new image form is revealed when they choose to add an image item)

  • the topic form should follow the same principle: the choice of topic type form should be consolidated into the topic type form and changing the chosen topic type updates the displayed form change "choose topic type" text to be "The topic is about a?"
