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)..

What I ment for the highlighting not showing is when you chose a category it is still showing as if you have selected the base category.

Any ideas how to stop it jumping back to the top of the page when you select a tab?

edit: figured it out - what kind of load increase will this hack cause?

Bobster thank you very much for this awesome mod. I will test and no doubt it should look great.

As far as Search Engine Crawling, it is fully unobtrusive, search engine friendly

no, don't throw it out the window lol.. I see whats wrong. Its a colspan issue..

in my sample code (step 18) look for this towards the beginning of the step..

What I did was include my custom code that didn't account for the 6th column (Moderator) (See the part in BOLD RED) Below...


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

so what you can do is add this condition to it


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

So it would look something like this..


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

That will fix it for you..

*UPDATED* to version 1.01

Those that marked installed received the updated information via email.

Only the tabcontent.js was updated, so simply download the new zip and upload the new .js file.

Additional information has also been updated in Post #2

be sure to follow steps 1-4 for setting up the install environment. I wrote it this way specifically so you won't lose anything that is important while adding this.

I'd install it for you, but I am completely swamped
