Changing order of tabs on Search Center

24 Jan

Following steps explains how you can change the tabs order on the Search Center in SharePoint 2010.

Here is how my Search Center displays. It has All Sites and Directory.






Click on Site Actions-> View All Site Content






Click on Tabs in Search Pages

The Tabs in Search Pages list displays as follows






Click on List Ribbon






Click on List Settings






Click the url at the top and change listedit.aspx to reorder.aspx






I moved directory to order 1.






Click Ok.

The list will show it based on the position you set. But on the Search Center it will not show the right order. It will still display as –






Go back to the Tabs in Search Pages by Click Site Actions->View All Site Content and click on Tabs in Search Pages. Edit the Directory Item and just click on Save. Your screen should display as –






If you are interested in the Search Center displaying the Directory Search by default, you can change the welcome page as follows –
Click on Site Actions -> Site Settings






Click on Welcome Page






Click on Browse button









Click on People page and click ok.
Click Ok on the Welcome Page.
Now the Search Center will display the Directory Tab by default.
