Unmaintainable Block Admin Page in Drupal

When you have more than 100 Blocks things get messy on Drupal’s Block Admin Interface. If you ever went crazy because of weird issues when dragging and dropping blocks to change their weight and/or region you probably have hit Drupal’s internal limit of handling weights from -50 to +50 or otherwise said, 100 items.

It can be fixed by setting the variable drupal_weight_select_max to a higher value. This can be done in various ways, here’s how its implemented in a deploy script.

function dgm_deploy_update_7011() {
  variable_set('drupal_weight_select_max', 250);
}
