all the same id?
You might try giving all the elements you want draggable the same class instead of the same id. The way ids work, there should only ever be one element on a page with a given id. A lot of jQuery functions will return an array when there are more than one element with the same id but I've run across some that won't.
Some code would help, yes.
I did not arrive at my understanding of the physical universe through my rational mind.
