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)..

Its too bad this fix was lost in the threads. The instructions need to be updated so we don't all waste our time hunting 100+ pages of posts.

Now I have to find some "MAC Head" to test my site using Safari. hehehe
thanks for this! had a hard time searching for the fix here..
all users with "white-space or empty space between their tabs and categories on internet explorer, try this fix

hi bobster,

i read in a post that you're working on the "Selected" tab issue?
I am also having problems with the Selected li not selecting the default tab, instead, the first tab is always the default, no matter where i put "Selected" .

I have a tab for all my forums so it will load all forums for users who wants all forums loaded. I want it to be at the first tab but not the default

Do let me know if you already have the solution for this

thanks!
Tom

I'm confused. How do you assign which categories for the first tab? I can get the 2nd tabs to display the correct forums, but the first...doesn't seem to work.

There was no instructions for the first tab. And I'm not using the ajax one...just the regular javascript.

As dumb as this sounds, where do I upload the 4 files? To my hosting or to my actual Cpanel?

Sorry, yes I know, not the first time working this but wanted to make sure.

Also I have vBulletin 3.8.4 , will it work with that?

Maybe you could use Cyb's subforum manager to help out with this. Cyb's mod works with this with only one minor tweak. Its worth a shot.

The core is done and works fine with one exception, the collapse part.. still tweaking that. Also need to do some minor modifications to the "modules" admin as it included tweaks for other mods such as Cyb's Subform Manager (which he hasn't released yet), Blogs (need to rewrite that module) and Project Tools (which there is no vb4 version yet)..

You have to make edits to two of the plugins for Cbys Sub Forum Mod..

Plugins (Search In): Cyb - Sub-Forum Manager - CT and Cyb - Sub-Forum Manager 1
Find:
(THIS_SCRIPT=='index' OR THIS_SCRIPT=='forumdisplay'))
Replace With:
(THIS_SCRIPT=='index' OR THIS_SCRIPT=='forumdisplay' OR THIS_SCRIPT=='tabforumhome'))
