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

yes, you can take a look at another mod I released here (AJAX TABS) for CMPS and you can get an idea on how easy it is to add custom content.

It won't be released until its beta tested.. I wished I could give a solid date, but I can't as that depends on bugs, fixing bugs etc.. the GOAL is for the end of this month.. it could be sooner or later tho.

Where do I adjust the CSS?

bobster65: Thanks for the mod. Even I got it to work. I see the CSS in your download file but don't know where it should be uploaded to. I would like to make color adjustments, can you point me in the right direction?

Thanks again.

Color adjustments are done via the css file. Re-read the top of the instructions and it tells you where to upload the the css file

Sounds like you have a tab to tab content area mismatch. I can take a look at your template if you PM it to me

bobster, very cool coding - something to play with and learn from!

Rather than create a separate index_tabs.php I placed this into the original instead:

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

See any problems with that?
