Anyway, I did run into one problem with the directions given here and it took me a bit to figure out.

The directions mention right clicking the tabcontent.js file and saving. You can't do that. Dynamic Drive prevents the hotlinking of their files and you get a file that doesn't work. Ultimately it saves as tabcontent.js.htm and just contains their "This is a no no" message in HTML.

So basically, you need to do what the second part of the directions say and go there and directly download it.
Which is why I provided the alternate download. I have, on occasion, still been able to download the JS file directly.

Then the thread page loads with the templates or css or something all broken. I tried disabling other add-ons but the only thing that fixed it was reverting that one template.
Could you link me an example? I haven't had a chance to see this used on a board with a side installed yet. My demo board doesn't include the suite.

Very professional.

As soon as I get some bucks in my paypal I'll hook up with ya to install this for me again on my vb4 site.
Thanks, Gary.

p.s.: If I can post the dynamic signature slider here let me know and I will gladly share it with you guys. (there is a signature slider mod in vbunderground but it does NOT work how they specify it there.)


I have come across several solutions for the issue with google chrome not displaying the buttons ; I enabled mytabs.init() and put in 10 sec intervals and the images do show rotating(but still no buttons to manually change the pic). Although we have run into another issue, we have LiveTopic installed for the forums and when in a thread that is "Live" the images do not show at all. You would have to refresh the page or edit your post to make the images viewable by you and the other users if and when they are in a "live" thread. If anyone has any feedback regarding these issues it would be greatly appreciated. Here is the modified version for signatures if anyone wants to use it go ahead, and many thanks to Digital Jedi for this very useful mod.

PS..: I have made this so that only a certain usergroups can use the sig slider and the rest their normal signatures.

PS..: 2 We have found that the live topic issue and the button images not appearing is exclusive to Google Chrome. In IE and FF it works PERFECT! I can provide demo link if needed.
Was this only with the Singnature Slider or did you have trouble with the Dynamic Postbit as well? I know I have not had any trouble with my postbit mod, but I did run into issues whenever the init was set. That particular part of the JavaScript just didn't jibe well with vBulletin.

Below is my postbit template can anyone help in telling me where I am going wrong?
I don't see anything wrong with your Legacy code, offhand. I would need to take a look at your site with the edits in place to see what the trouble is.
