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

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 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 -

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)

I have been able to get the tabs all displaying and link to the correct pages but it always thinks its on the home page so none of the sub links work

Can someone guide me through this. I would be willing to donate/pay some money as I got a quote from one of the theme guys and he wants to charge me $200 to code it if I cant get this mod to work for me.

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.
to submit sitemaps, do i have to enable "Enable Automatic Sitemap Generation"?

No, this for the FORUM HOME of vbulletin.

I answered your post on the vbadvanced site. I released AJAX Tabs for vbadvanced (both here and on the vbadvanced site).
Please Do Not PM me for vBulletin assistance... I am currently only doing customization & addon's for Xenforo.

Thanks for the mod, working good (I still need to style it though). But one question, I have the mod "Vault Wiki" installed and this does not display any of the Wiki "forums" (the mod uses forums as a wiki) at all. No idea really, but was wondering if you had any idea on what I might be able to look into in order to get it to display these?

I looked into your Module setup, but I don't want them all displayed in a single tab, they are separated out into various areas of the site depending on their content/access, so I'd like them to display where they display currently, just in the forum tab with the rest of the forums in that category.

Actually, it's not completely working right.

I have about 8 tabs I made, only a few of them seem to work. I've validated that the categories are in fact categories, but the subforums still do not display. Basically, anything 3 levels deep isn't displaying.

Here's an example of my hierarchy:

--Level 2
----Level 3
If a category is at level Root or Level 2, then the subforums will display in the tab, anything under it, I can't get it to display.

Hello Bobster,

i installed your great innovation to our community (! It looks and works fine, but it is not the best performance at the load.

I tested our website with And so I see what's the problem:

Our dedicated server is standing in Berlin/Germany. But always "tabbed forum" is called, the modification goes to Sunnyville, CA. This is the not the shortest way from Germany .
You can see the result at the attachments.

At every time, if users push a tab, they goes to CA. This is really not very performant for us.

Have I any chance that the integrated javascript not call in CA?

That's because the yui is from yahoo and that's where it's hosted. Maybe they host the yui in germany too? If so, make changes.
