Menu Reorder is a very simple October CMS plugin to reorder the backen main menu.

By default the backend main menu items are order by the values defined by each plugin in their Plugin.php. Menu Reorder allows you to change the order as you see fit.


This plugin is licensed under the MIT license, see the LICENSE file.



You can install the plugin from the marketplace, otherwise follow these steps

  1. Download the zip-archive
  2. Unpack it into the plugin directory
  3. You're good to go


The plugin registers a new backend main menu entry which you can use to navigate to the reorder list.

The reorder list provides you the possibility to change the backend main menu's order.

A change will only become visible once your refresh the page or navigate to a different backend page.

To restore the original order, simply remove the plugin.

    Great solution, thanks! But few notes. I'd better move the Menu Reorder menu item from top menu to settings page - because I need it 1 or 2 times at all and don't want it to consume any usefull space. Also the plugin somewhy displays in reorder list plugin names that were removed from the system.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Yes, I agree that there's potential to make it better. I've already added GitHub issues for improvements, but I haven't thought about removed plugins, so I'll definitely have to look into that. I initially thought as well to move it to the settings page, but then just went with the easiest solution I could come up with.

    I've never paid much attention to the backend menu before consciously, but after seeing this plugin I was instantly reminded of how much I hate having to scroll over on smaller screens just to get to my Settings menu. So why not give this plugin a try?

    I did, and it's simplicity just can't be beat. So far so good!
