So i know how to order fields when creating/editing a content type. But say i have three fields in a content type:

  • name
  • last name
  • nick

and want these to be draggable when a user creates a new node.

Any suggestions?


  • WHAT IS YOUR DRUPAL VERSION? – Yuseferi Sep 18 '12 at 16:33

For Drupal 7, you can use the Field Weight module to change the field order per node.

I've used it with no trouble.

In cck you can change order of content type fields, and with Field display weights module you can have different order of fields per node . by default drupal not have a module for ordering field in view (we should order them in back-end part .
I think if you want fields be dragable in view(fornt-end) you should to use jquery ui dragable plugin

This link help you to provide your needs

  • Unfortunately that module you referenced for changing the weights of the fields seems to no longer be maintained. – Patrick Jul 13 '15 at 15:26
