I've created 3 different view and added them to a tab menu.

now these 3 menu items are sorted alphabetically and the default tab menu is printed as middle item .

I wanted to sort them using menus but tab items doesn't exist there .

How can I reorder tab items created by views module?


You can provide a weight while editing the Views tab: Edit tab. Higher weights will be moved to the back of the order. But since you cannot see the weights of the other tabs this can take quite a while to get right.

Better is to have a look at Tab Tamer

Tab Tamer is an administration utility that provides easy re-ordering, hiding, and deactivation of tabs and subtabs. You can also rename tab labels.

You can adjust the weight in hook_menu_local_tasks_alter:

* Implements hook_menu_local_tasks_alter()
* @param $data
* @param $router_item
* @param $root_path
function HOOK_menu_local_tasks_alter(&$data, $router_item, $root_path) {
  if ($root_path == 'admin/content') {
    // You add #weight here on item level not link level
    $data['tabs'][0]['output'][0]['#weight'] = '1000';

For more code you can also look here: Altering menu local task title

  • isn't there any solution without coding? anyway thanks for help – Alireza Tabatabaeian Apr 15 '16 at 22:11

I know that this is 2 years ago, but this will help somebody looking for similar problem.

here you can see full code for creating menu tabs with weight. (just put weight in $items array under key)

$items['processing'] = array(
    //'title' => t('Create Menu Tab'),
    'access callback' => TRUE,
    'access arguments' => array('dn_release'),
    'page callback' => 'drupal_get_form',
    'page arguments'  => array('dn_wawi_release_form'),

  $items['processing/order/release'] = array(
    'title' => 'Release orders',
    'access arguments' => array('dn_release'),
    'page callback' => 'drupal_get_form',
    'page arguments'  => array('dn_wawi_release_form'),
    'weight' => 1,

  $items['processing/order/labels'] = array(
    'title' => 'Print labels',
    'type' => MENU_LOCAL_TASK,
    'access arguments' => array('dn_wawi'),
    'page callback' => 'drupal_get_form',
    'page arguments'  => array('dn_wawi_generate_tracking_form'),
    'weight' => 2,
