Plugins Load Order plugin allows you to change the order in which WordPress core will load active plugins when rendering an URL. You will be able doing that task using a nice drag-and-drop interface. It is only required that you drag and drop plugin items to set the order and save changes. The plugin will manage to load the other plugins as you have set them.

¿When to use Plugins Load Order plugin?

You will need to use this plugin when exists a dependece between a plugin and another active plugin, that means, if an error occurs in time execution beacause there is a plugin which needed to be loaded before the one which has caused the error. By changing the order in which they are loaded, the error will disappear and your page will load without showing any error.

If you are a plugin developer, I encourage you to use hooks and actions so that dependences between plugins do not exist. In the other hand, if you are a blog administrator and you have to deal with this annoying problem, it will be as simple as using this plugin to solve the problem.
