Details

This module uses a combination of JQuery, AJAX and the session to remember and recall the state of each field on a page edit in terms of whether the field is open or folder/closed. The idea is that when users are making many incremental edits, they will likely want to page to retain state between saves rather than reverting to it's default state after each page save.

The requirement came from a large and complex template with many tens of fields in various groupings. The editor in question found it frustrating that the page reverted back to a default state after each page edit and she had to drill back down to find a single field. Now she doesn't have to!
