Tabbed Forum Home version 1.01

[AJAX] Tabbed Forum Home version 1.5.0 (BETA)

NOTE: Works with both 3.7x and 3.6x

Description: This MOD is for creating a "Tabbed" Forum Home Page to have Categories displayed within Tab containers (similar to what the new Profile System looks like on vb3.7). Please do not confuse this with the Tab Menu System here at vbulletin.org. They are totally different systems. These Tabs actually switch the content without leaving the main forums page.

I wrote the initial Non AJAX version based on reading many requests from members asking about how namepros created their custom tabbed forum home page. The first implementation I did was a request by bbwforums.net (which you can visit to see a working example). I have shared this version with many members already and decided to release it since it seems to be something that a lot of members are interested in.

UPDATE: I have released a BETA [AJAX] version for those that what something a little more robust and easier to install/configure. This Beta version will never go into production tho as version 2.0 will utilize the YUI AJAX Tabview Toolset. It IS stable tho and is currently running on a few live sites.

NOTE: Keep in mind, I wrote this with the assumption that you are fairly well versed and comfortable with editing files/templates and following the flow of things. If there is something you don't understand, PLEASE let me know so that I can help you understand it. This IS NOT a product that a novice can just plug and play and it takes a little bit of time to setup, but its well worth it in the end (if you want a custom unique look to your forum home page)... the next version (Don't ask when, cause its just on the drawing board) will be a product with ACP controls for easy setup

The attached Zip File(s) contain the Files and Instructions necessary to install each version.

DEMO: www.bbwforums.net or www.namepros.com

Screen Shots: None, visit one or both of the above links as seeing them in action is better than some static image(s)..

I am having problem with going three level down the categories tree.

Two level: category(id:1) -> forum(id:2)
Three level: category(id:3) -> category>(id:4) -> forum(id:5)

If I used tabforumhome.php?tabcat[]=1, forum(id:2) would appear under category(id:1) tab.

However, if I used tabforumhome.php?tabcat[]=4, Icannot get forum(id:5) to appear under category(id:4) tab.

I think by default ajax tabbed works with 2 level category. How do I fix this, so I could get some tabs with 2 level category and some tabs with 3 level category to work properly?

You both need to make sure that the path to you files are correct (/clienscript/... in file edits change that to your full url (http://yourforum.com/clientscript/...).

It's the template edits for the forumhome template. I don't know the exact ones.

As previously said, you need to change the paths here:

Put them to your full URL.
