Now that we have a Drupal 7 version of Menu Editor out, someone mentioned a new module called "Content Menu", with a purpose quite similar to Menu Editor. It has been suggested that we join forces.
As a start, we should make a comparison and summary of the features that make you favor one over the other.
We can update the the issue summary accordingly.
(unfortunately, we cannot have one issue shared between two projects)
Unique features of Content Menu:
- Search form
- Fewer text fields visible at once - this can be a good thing.
- Content type visible from
- Node creation from menu editing form
- Choose a node, instead of path autocomplete.
Unique features of Menu Editor:
- Add up to 8 items at once.
- Direct inline editing of title and path.
- Multi-delete via delete checkbox
- Node creation from placeholder page
- Path autocomplete
Implications for menu editor
Atm I do not think that merging the two modules would be technically a good idea. The two modules solve similar problems, but in slightly different ways. A merge would probably sacrifice more than it helps.
However, we can study which problems each of the two modules solve, and how they compare in usability.
I would expect that menu editor has a higher productivity, while content menu might have a better usability.
The result might lead to a few design changes and improvements in menu editor, or maybe also in content menu (this is out of my powers to decide)
