I’m developing a Woddpress page builder (video here: http://screenr.com/7xA7 )

Now I have 2 options:

1) Code it with combination PHP + jQuery, where PHP is used for displaying saved items (options) and jQuery for dynmaic adding items.

2) Code it only with jQuery.

So my qustion is “What is better option?”.

Thx for all of your advices and suggestions :)

How do you intend to do that with jQuery only? You still need to save the options in the database and use WordPress API to do that.

BTW I could see you downloading Requiem for a Dream in the video.

all items are saved in custom field like a json array so I can read this json array in jQuery :)

And yes I was downloading requirem for a dream becase my friend told me, that it’s good movie :)

Hi,

You will need to use both php and jQuery. Please take a look at the video bellow ( the page builder that i will release soon in my first wordpress theme :D ) to see what i’ve achieved with this combination.

PHP is used for restoring / saving / adding options and jQuery is used for all the rest :P.

Thx for your opinion, but the problem is that I don’t need PHP :D It can be done only by jQuery too :) So I have choice :)
