Daniel Barrett asked:
tl;dr: Is it possible to enforce an order on
that are attached to the same hook?
Unfortunately, MediaWiki 1.28.0 always runs
CategoryTree's callback after mine,
so no matter what I do, CategoryTree wins. (Strangely, in 1.27, my extension always won.)
I don't see any sort of enforced ordering from a quick glance at the code. It does
merge together "old school" ($wgHooks) and "new school"
into a single array, which might account for some of the odd behaviour you are seeing.
I would try to use the same registration method as the version of CategoryTree you
have. In other words, have your extension use the new extension.json if you have a
modern CategoryTree. Otherwise, both can use wgHooks.
Then, in theory, the order they are called in LocalSettings.php should produce a
sane and repeatable order.
