[YUI] Tabbed Forum Home (TFH) version 4.0.8
vBulletin version: 4.1.11 - 4.2.0
Older versions need original mod for now

Description:
This MOD is for creating a "Tabbed" Forum Home Page to have Categories and other Data types (via Modules) displayed within Tab containers. 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 via AJAX without leaving the main forums page.

This is an entirely new version of TFH and only works with vB4. Management is all done via the Admin CP.

Installation is done in 3 simple steps. Upload files, Import product, 3 easy Template Edits.

Setup is now a breeze via the Tabs option in the Admin CP.

The attached Zip File contains the Files and Instructions necessary to install.

Incompatible mods
Two columns of categories - http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=275114

Upgrading to 4.0.7+ from previous versions
We have had to change the mod's id which means when you install this time you will have 2 mods, the new version with its new id and the old version.
Both can run side by side but shouldnt to save processing time.

To migrate:
Install the latest version and upload all the files (no conflicts to worry about)
Install the latest product xml
Follow the template changes in the upgrade txt
Create your tabs in the new admincp menu option "EG: Tabbed Forum Home" to mirror the existing "Tabbed Forum Home" menu.
Once done uninstall the product "Tabbed Forum Home" with productid bobster_tfh (old mod id)

Is it possible to pull in single forum (forumdisplay) in each tab so that I can make a site like vb.org. I read through about 17 pages and didn't yet find it.

Thanks and ofcourse, this is a great MOD.

Yes, itīs possible.
You must put in a tab all the categories you need.
You need to decide what are the thematic of each tab and put the categories in consecuence.

Thanks for the reply. I just have one category and would like level 2 forumdisplay.php displayed with threads (threadbits) instead of list of categories/forums.

Inside the tab, I would like have threads like
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=245

Thank you.

No it's not, sorry. Not really even sure what you said past yes, but it's not. Not that I can tell anyway.


Anyone who has this installed, try and collapse one of your cats. From what I can tell, clicking collapse blows up your sites style. Try it and see.

Most of these files for this mod are years old. It may work somewhat but is it using the latest fixes and updates in line with vb? I'm not sure.

I don't believe most all of this CSS is needed either.

Erm its not possible? If you say had 5 forums and wanted a tab for each, yes it is possible...
I run 4.1.3 without issue with this mod, do you actually have it installed or have you even tried it?
Remove the collapse links cures the problem in the interim.

Your own forum blows up when clicking collapse.

Of course I have installed it to test it, why would someone bother to comment on something they had not tested and are interested in using?

Show me on your site where you have 5 forums linked to these tabs. You have only categories linked that I can see, not specific forums.

If removing the collapse is needed then it should be mentioned in the instructions. If it's not mentioned, one might assume they should still work.

Hey..

Is there a way to make a Module tab be the default tab instead of a normal tab?

I want to create a display that will be welcoming in a module tab and I want that module tab to be the first tab that opens up when the member loads the forum page..

Is this possible?

Thanks

yes, click on Manage Tabs... in the Active Modules section (under the tabs), on the far right, click on Make this Default. Then that Module will be the default tab loaded.

The collapse has always been a bug in the vB4.0 version as I've never got around to fixing it. I have absolutely NO interest what so ever in vB4.x, so I won't be further developing this MOD. I have found someone willing to take it over tho, so maybe they will fix that bug.

As far as the Mod itself goes, it is designed to tab out CATEGORIES (not individual forums) & Content Modules. I created the Content Modules portion of the modification to handle things like BLOGs, CMS Content, Albums, Recent threads, Static & Dynamic Content etc... This includes creating your own Individual Forum Module (which is really just a recent threads module). If you don't know how to make your own php file to do this, you can always ask someone to make one for you. I couldn't tell you how many custom modules I've created for people that want specific dynamic content (Blogs, Project Tools, CMS, Albums etc... )

Anyway... again, it is not designed to tab out individual forums. Its built around FORUM HOME which displays CATEGORIES.

I love what you've done with your edits. Did you start off with this mod as a base and modify it, or did you do all changes by hand without any product importing?

I definitely want to implement this mod, but I wouldn't mind trying your edits to see which works better for me.
