#9070 closed bug (duplicate)

Sortable: Unstable movements using connectWith

Reported by: joshuaballoch Owned by:

Blocked by: Blocking:


jQuery UI's sortable connectWith option has some core instabilities. When: your two sortable element 'bins' or 'buckets' have a width that makes the sortable elements inside push into two or more lines.

What breaks: In this case, the movement of elements within a bin is unstable:

  1. it is hard to move to where you want,
  2. the elements constantly jump around, and
  3. it is impossible to move an element into the first position


Removing connectWith returns stability to the sortable lists:

Potential Solution: This SO Q+A has found a potential solution to improve stability:

I am unsure that this user has submitted a ticket, so I wrote new fiddles and am submitting one here.

Can we get this ticket re-opened? This is a duplicate of #8972, but that ticket was not resolved: its pull request was refused. As such, that proposed solution was nixed, but the bug remains. (see

This remains as a core bug, I would hope this could be reopened and resolved.

Why would we re-open this ticket? We're aware of the bug, having duplicate tickets open won't get the bug fixed any faster.
