This plugin override jQuery.ui.sortable with several fixes. Namely the bugs:

  1. Drag an item away from the list and try to drag it back in via the top or bottom. The placeholder isn't placed correctly.

  2. If the option 'appendTo' is set to an outside element and the list is scrollable, jQuery.ui.sortable will still deal with the overflowing items. It shouldn't. This becomes a bigger issue when you have multiple lists; specifically an overflowing list on top of another.

  3. In some cases jQuery.ui.sortable doesn't respect the 'items' options.

  4. Sorting doesn't work correctly for a nested list.

jQuery.ui.sortableFix fixes the above issues.

Usage

Simply include the file after $.ui.sortable is included and use $.sortable as before.

Warning

This plugin overrides $.ui.contains and makes it unusable. It doesn't make a difference for $.sortable but I haven't checked where else $.ui.contains is used so it could potentially be problematic. The plugin works for me so until a bug presents itself I'll leave it as is.
