vB Version: 4.1.11 Rating: (103 votes - 4.56 average) Installs: 444
Released: 14 Jan 2010 Last Update: 02 Aug 2012 Downloads: 4500
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files Translations Is in Beta Stage  

[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)

Nope, the person that was interested in taking over the vb4 version of this hasn't got back to me.

As far as relocating the tabs, that is something that can be done with a few edits.

I am back, a few RL issues forced me to slow down my dev work and things in general but thats all solved now.
I have a few things planned but if you list off what features/options you would like I will look to integrating them too.

The only thing stopping me using this is that it is SEO unfriendly.

If this could be fixed that would be fantastic.

Thanks.

Do you submit sitemaps? if so it then makes no difference to your SEO as your content is still *out there*
I have used this addon since we went vb4 and my site has grown and grown and I have seen no SEO hit.
Think about your forum home, other then the right column showing last post date/thread it has no real dynamic content that search engines would care about.
Sitemaps ensures you content is indexed properly not the forum home as such.
Remember as well that if we were to say dump the tabs content into the page as hidden div's the page would be slower to load which google cares about now.

I am working on a fix right now, simply put the collapse code vbulletin has scans the page for certian tags and applies the collapse's and tags the onclick event to found links. Because the tabs are loaded after the page is loaded (aka dynamic) the script that does this tagging has already run and does not rerun.

For now I would remove the tab code for now. Remove the following from forumhpme_forumbit_level1_nopost THIS ISSUE HAS BEEN FIXED AND A FIXED VERSION WILL BE COMING SOON

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

That will remove the button.

Regarding Santori's implementation, its not a tweaked version of this mod, his code loads the tab content along with the page as hidden div tags which means the vbulletin code can *tag* the collapse onclick to the divs. This also makes the pages a larger and I dont think the tabs live update themselves either unlike this mod. This is a lot like the vb3 version of a similar mod and not dynamic tab content.

Regarding vBSEO, I have vbSEO here and it all plays well.

Regarding SEO in general, like I said in the last post, if you are feeding google etc sitemaps there should be no real seo hit as your forum home page is not going to be affected in rankings tbh. In a way because the page size is smaller for forumhome you could actually benefit. Most of your google traffic will probably be *long tail* aka to specific threads rather then to your forumhome, having had a site using this for ages now its not had any negative effect I can see.

I have fixed the collapse issue. I am just getting the fix ready for you all but it works now.
NOTE: the fix is on a test version of my site not the live build yet but I do have the collapse issue resolved it appears, just testing browsers right now.

A question, how important would an auto template install be?
Do you guys find manual edits a problem?
The install should be very efficient when I get it going fully unlike a lot of mods auto install's which actually get ran on each page.
I have found a possible way but I am just trying to work out if there is any point.

Yes please. I tried installing this one time on my forum a while ago, got caught up in a serious mess. An auto install would be delightful. honestly. there is a huge cry for that. I think auto-install could possibly boost this mod to one of the more used/popular mods around....

Thank you, and good luck.

Hello, Do you have reason, my forumhome is large. And itīs another mod. But I need to say it is dynamic , if you see my forum, it actuallize all posts and is compatible with translations. Itīs like the vb3 solution, with the dynamic drive library.

This is a reason I do not use the mod in my forum, I have the vbet enterprise translation mod and it not works with TFH.

I see you are interested in make better this mod. I recommend you to find a solution to collapse button that not requires delete or block this button.
For me the real utility for tabs into a vbforum is to expand the forum. If you make a tab with a large list of forums without the collapse button is very tedious to navigate...

I find my own solution, it can not be the best, but for me at the moment is the only solution I see.

If you can make this , I will very happy really... I donīt lie.
At the moment I only see you implement a charging button...In my opinion I canīt see the utility for it.
Can you explain?
I think is better to minimize the speed of the tabs instead the other options.

Regards
