action shot of a tag being dragged to reorder it on the Watched Tags sidebar


Motivated by this question: https://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/368024/have-favorite-tags-always-been-alphabetized/

This'll restore the previous behavior: tags will remain in the order in which you add them.

But it'll even do one better: per rene's suggestion from the comments, it'll also allow you to reorder the tags at will by dragging them around (you have to start editing them first though, so as to avoid inadvertently reordering them while trying to click).

Get Tampermonkey or whatever you use to run userscripts, then install here: https://github.com/Shog9/ReoderableFavorateTags/raw/master/reorderablefavoritetags.user.js


Tested on Chrome 68 and Firefox 61

Works in Tampermonkey; probably works in Greasemonkey but untested.

  • Is "Chrome 6.8" supposed to mean Chrome 68, or did you actually try it in Chrome 6.8? Commented Sep 5, 2018 at 23:59

    Definitely supposed to be 68, @astonearachnid
