    Try it each way and figure out what you like best. I'd say the only pedals you want in front of a compressor are a fuzz and a wah and/or auto-wah.

    Wah first as it's the kind of pedal that works best with guitar impedance, but that's right, try it the opposite and see watcha' think.

    +1 on what Cubba said.

    I use to place my wah last in chain and wow! it did sound better place first in chain. Also first try to get best compressor setting only using : Guitar>compressor>Amp

    Next try whatever you are trying. Ahh just my.03 cents. Give me my .01cent back!!
    Smooth modern gain: tight balanced saturation with note definition.
    Just like the insects take their time and collect their food, I can surely save and buy myself any amp (with time).

    I used to use a compressor after an envelope filter to kind of smooth out the peaks. I imagine it would be similar to using it with a wah.

    I personally like having my wah first in line; but it's like the others said, whatever you prefer.
