newRecord.order
Type

Define an alternate order for the groups of records in the new records wizard. Pages and content elements will always be on top, but the order of other record groups can be changed.

Example: Place the tt_news group at the top of the new record dialog

Place the tt_news group at the top (after pages and content elements), other groups follow unchanged:

EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
mod.wizards.newRecord.order = tt_news
