So I've been experiencing some problems with the Views UI recently. (I know this isn't the Views Issue page, but its not an issue with Views, its an issue with jQuery Update that breaks views).

On one of my Drupal sites that uses Views & jQuery Update I haven't been able to re-order the fields in any views, when I click on 1 of the fields to drag it, it seems to stick to the cursor or will disappear sometimes. I also receive a javascript alert displaying an ajax error message anytime I try to preview a view. Rarely, but sometimes I also receive an error when trying to save the view. I have attached a screenshot of the error I receive when I try to preview the view.

I was determined to figure out the cause of this problem as I have been using Views for a very long time and have never experienced such strange behavior. I copied one of my sites over into a new directory and I only enabled Views & Views UI. Everything was working as it should, so I started enabling custom & contributed modules one by one, to see what would break Views UI. After enabling all my custom modules, everything was still working as it should, then I enabled jQuery Update and suddenly everything broke and I encountered the issues I mentioned before. I have tested this using the most recent version of Views and the most recent version of jQuery Update and those issues definitely occur.

To get around it for now, I just disable jQuery Update when I need to work on any of my Views, and then re-enable afterwards. I just thought I'd bring this issue to the attention of the module maintainers.

I have just posted 2 screenshots of the issues I have when I re-order the fields in Views UI. The before picture shows the 3 fields, and the after picture shows those 3 fields missing (because they stick to the cursor and when I click on something it seems to lose them). This is on a sandbox site that is using Garland Theme and the only contributed modules enabled are Views, Views UI, and jQuery Update. When I disable jQuery Update, I do not experience this issue anymore.

Still experiencing this issue, I wonder if the maintainers are aware of this?

Just committed a fix for the sorting issue.

Are there other issues?

Do I just need to run cvs update to get the fix?
