As you can see in the image below, I'm using drupal_add_tabledrag to allow admin to sort node order by dragging. But how do I drag the items from one page to another? Is there additional Drupal API, or if not, how would you go about this?

There can be hundreds of nodes, I cannot fit them on a single page.

I doubt anyone else will have a useful answer. But the DraggableViews module for Drupal 6 showed 3 items from the previous and next Page(s) in paged results. Allowing you to drag an item from the previous page into the previous or next page.

Now if you have hundreds of items I'm not sure how you would skip multiple pages at once -- but looking at how they did this could help you to extend the Drupal 7 Draggable Views module to achieve the functionality you want.

Unfortunately the Drupal 7 DraggableViews does not support this yet.

Proof of this is in this issue queue: https://www.drupal.org/node/1458870

  • Thank you, you've answered my question on many levels. 1st, there is no current solution. 2nd, it has been done before in DraggableViews module for D6, and 3rd a link to the Issue. Nov 27, 2014 at 1:39
