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)..

Hi folks,

Great mod...I was wondering though...now that the search engines can't see the tabbed content, is there a way that I could only show the tabs to members leaving guests viewing the original forumhome?

Many thanks!

no, there is a 4.x version in the vBulletin 4.x Modifications Forum. This version is for the 3.x series.

Please post some screenshots... Websites change every X time. Like the ones you gave: both don't feature any tab system, or I don't see it. And I just want to know if this mod is what I need, because the description looks promising.

Thank you!!

Maybe I'm confused. I'm actually looking for a tab system like vb.org uses. This mod isn't that I guess. So do you know where to get it?

Firefox 5 Issue With My Site

Can anyone take a look at my site and tell me why Firefox 5 is not working with my site. I have vbadvanced installed as well. I have my forums in tabs using a script. If anyone can give me a clue as to what code needs updated it would be very helpful I have reports that IE 8 is not working with my site as well.

My site is here: www.globalschoolconnect.com

I figured maybe some code needs updated for this script to work with Firefox 5???

Just installed this and it seems to be duplicating the categories I choose to display. For example, I sent the first tab to display category 3 and I am seeing two of that category.

Ideas? Fixes?

If any developer wants to take this over, please PM me. I am no longer working with the vBulletin Platform, so there won't be any more updates to this.
