Context: SP 2010, Enterprise Search center site.
How do you re-order the tabs on the search + result pages?
I've found documentation for how its done in SP 2007 but SP 2010 seems to have removed the "Change Item Order" option.
yeah can do it.
Need to open the list, then manully change the URL to 'reorder.aspx' instead of 'listedit.aspx' - see this link.
You can easily changed the tab order for your subsites in SharePoint 2010. 1. Go to Site Actions/Site Settings 2. Under Look and Feel, click Top Link Bar 3. Reorder.
I believe this answered your question.
Since no one has responded and from everything I've seen it seems like there's no 'built in' way to do this I'm going to mark this as answered. And the 'answer' is: you must delete the incorrectly ordered tabs and then re-create them in the order you want. If anyone knows a better way, please feel free to provide an answer.
When I did this, I edited the web part, went to layout, and used the Zone Index. I am using EasyTabs. Once I ordered the Zone Indexes, they appeared as I hoped.
