How it Works

Improve the way you view and manage tags and extensions with the Load Order Manager. The Load Order Manager combines tags and extensions on a single screen to show a high-level overview of their execution order. This view provides a separate interface to edit the order of operations of your tags and extensions. Use this interface to view the actual order that tags and extensions are loaded and quickly change their order.

The main list view for tags and extensions can be sorted and filtered without affecting the order of execution of the viewed items.

Panel Layout

The Load Order Manager screen is displayed as two panels. The side panel shows each scope of the execution order that a tag or extension can appear and the main panel shows each tag and extension in their exact execution order.

The side panel lists each scope of the execution order and the number of items currently assigned to that scope. Click a scope to scroll the main panel directly to that section.

The main panel displays each tag and extension grouped by their execution scope. Use this view for the following actions:

  • Drag and drop an item to a different position.
  • Use quick links to:
    • Move an item to the top of a section.
    • Move an item to the bottom of a section.
    • Change the scope of an item.
  • Search across all tags and extensions.
  • Manually enter a position number of an item.
  • Collapse and expand sections.
  • Move items in bulk.
  • Change the scope of items in bulk.
  • Hide and show inactive items.
