comment Inline vs Modal Dialog Editing for complex widgets
So a bunch of widgets that have 3-5 tabs will be straight-forward to understand? I don't think show/hide will work in my case... one of the tabs must be a preview of what they are working on (probably the first one... like the way the widgets look in both of the screenshots. I am assuming then that it's okay to have multiple save/cancel buttons on each tab as well? Thanks so much for answering my questions. I am just a dumb coder, lol.

What are good UI patterns then for doing inline edits where the widget that you're editing has very complex forms... probably in the form of multiple tabs containing a form or some UI components in each one? For example, in my pictures above, you can imagine that the hints needed to be defined, the success message when you get the answer correct needs to be specified, all of the keywords need to be defined, there will be tools for adding synonyms and taking care of plurality, etc. All of this needs to fit on the screen somehow, so I can only imagine using tabs.

@ChairmanMeow Okay, I added a picture, although it's incomplete. You can edit the questions, text and other things. In the case of the question, there would be hints, keywords and all kinds of things that would need editing.

Does this apply for normal browser-based applications?

This is more for marketing part of the site. I am actually referring to web applications - like apps that actually do and manage complex things.

comment Where should I put a sub-menu on the screen?
Does the fact that most of these submenu actions are crud-like actions change anything for me? This is not always the case, but for 75%+ of them, it is.

comment Easy way to let every-day users embed images, videos, audio files, etc. inside text?
Yeah, it seems they do support dropins of images right onto the text area. I'm guessing this is custom ajax, and didn't come out of a library. I also need to support videos and audio too. Is it terribly hard to create a jwplayer or some audio streamlining thing inside of a textarea as they are typing? Or do I use some kind of thumbnail/object as a placeholder, but generate the jwplayer/audio streaming javascript code afterwards? They don't need to play the video/audio as they type, but they do need to see it and know where it's going to be in the text.

For right now, the files will be located on other internet locations, so they will be providing urls of some kind. I may need to support urls and uploads though. In terms of drag and drop, does that mean I have to create my own editor to handle this? Is there an editor that can do already?

comment What is a good approach to reordering table rows from a usability standpoint?
That's a pretty neat little library. I didn't know it existed since I don't use javascript much except for the basic jquery and a few plugins beyond this. Thanks!

Yeah, 2 does seem better. In this case, the sorting is arbitrary. There is no good column to sort on.
