I'm trying to add a link for a custom Mibbit IRC client, and I want it to use the user's username when they click the link (for when they connect to the client).

Here's what I've tried using:

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

The trouble is that it doesn't parse the username in the link. Any suggestions?

I've tried a few Tabs mods now and this is by far the most well thought-out, however I get the same issue with each Mod I've tried.

My problem is when I click on the 'New Tab' although I get taken to the correct page the tab isn't then highlighted, it just defaults to hightlight the 'forum' tab. This has got to be a really simple problem but it's driving mad, can anybody help me with a fix please.

Many thanks.
