Hi guys,

Right first up i'm going to apologise cos i'm sure this question has been asked plenty before just i'm a complete newbie when it comes to JavaScript & cant get to grips with it, so i came to assumption that it is the devils work :P

Anyway my question is, how are the BBC widgets that are movable by users & WordPress' admin section powered? So to maybe make that clearer for people that arent me, cos it made sense in my head lol, how can you make the divs move on user request & then snap to a location?

All i have been able to find is standard movable divs that either do not work or do not snap to a location which i'm guessing is absolute?

Anyway, just posting links to point me in the right direction would be great. Hey its christmas, why not be friendly & spare me the embarrassment of calling me an idiot :P

Cheers in advance guys.
