The way it used to be was when one clicked on 'Forums', the page would load with 'ALL' forums on one page for one to view and scroll through at once if they wished to do so, and so I'd like to 'still' have that functionality without creating a new Tab, because I'd then have 2 Tabs sitting next to eachother both labeled 'Forums'.

Thank you
I don't believe there is a way to make it only a drop-down tab on hover, and that would also not be very touch friendly.

Stops some styles from using fluid or fixed when enabled and otions to add/edit tabs are missing in cp.

Tried many things here still very buggy
Nobody else has reported any similar problems that I can recall, have you tried it in a default (unmodified) style and tried to disable all other modifications?

Does the pro version of this mod allow me to make a "mega menu" and/or a nested menu? (That is, have a menu open into another menu?)

I can't figure out how to embed a mega-menu into the navbar, so I was looking at this mod as a way to get this done.

Something like either of these ...

I don't believe so, no

That is incorrect. This mod provides multiple enhancements to the default Navigation Manager, but it does integrate with it rather than replace it.

We have no plans to bring this to vB3 at this time.

Just picked up the pro version and see that purevb's styles do not play nice with it. Anyone dealt with this in the past and can tell me what to look for? Using the Modern style from purevb.

You need to ask questions on the developers site concerning the Pro version of the mod.

Yes there has been issues with those styles, and the developer will handle it for you.

Its a very nice mod but I did an accident and need help.
I choose a wrong "Parent Item" for community (menu) = vb_ navigation_ menu_ vbmenu_ community_ text and now it doesn't appear anywhere. If someone guide me how can I fix it.

That is all you are supposed to see in 4.2.x, all the other settings are in the Navigation Manager.
