I would like to swap the order of tabs (admin)

Hey I figured I'd check here and see if anyone knew off the top of their head. I am trying to find a slick way of re ordering the tabs at the top of the item add/edit sections. I would like to display Item Type Metadata first, from there I would like to modify the form to default to a specific item type.

Here is the code chunk I am considering modding. (inside form-tabs.php)

<ul id="section-nav" class="navigation tabs">
    <?php foreach ($tabs as $tabName => $tabContent): ?>
        <?php if (!empty($tabContent)): // Don't display tabs with no content. '?>

<li><a>"><?php echo html_escape(__($tabName)); ?></a></li>
        <?php endif; ?>
    <?php endforeach; ?>

Look at the admin_items_form_tabs filter. It's usually used to add or remove a tab, but you can reorder them also.

Thanks for the tip! I'll try it out:)

I found an older post to reorder tabs:

- which is exactly what I want to do. Is this still valid in recent versions (I'm using v.2.3.1)?

It looks like it, though I haven't tried it out directly.
