[YUI] Tabbed Forum Home (TFH) version 4.0.8
vBulletin version: 4.1.11 - 4.2.0
Older versions need original mod for now

Description:
This MOD is for creating a "Tabbed" Forum Home Page to have Categories and other Data types (via Modules) displayed within Tab containers. 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 via AJAX without leaving the main forums page.

This is an entirely new version of TFH and only works with vB4. Management is all done via the Admin CP.

Installation is done in 3 simple steps. Upload files, Import product, 3 easy Template Edits.

Setup is now a breeze via the Tabs option in the Admin CP.

The attached Zip File contains the Files and Instructions necessary to install.

Incompatible mods
Two columns of categories - http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=275114

Upgrading to 4.0.7+ from previous versions
We have had to change the mod's id which means when you install this time you will have 2 mods, the new version with its new id and the old version.
Both can run side by side but shouldnt to save processing time.

To migrate:
Install the latest version and upload all the files (no conflicts to worry about)
Install the latest product xml
Follow the template changes in the upgrade txt
Create your tabs in the new admincp menu option "EG: Tabbed Forum Home" to mirror the existing "Tabbed Forum Home" menu.
Once done uninstall the product "Tabbed Forum Home" with productid bobster_tfh (old mod id)

I have not had time to look into the issues with Hasans sub forum manager. I've had weird results with it.... sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

However, Cyb (now known as Valtar) just released his version of sub forum manager and it works fine with TFH. Just upload his xml, make the setting changes you want and it displays just fine within the tabs...

correct... if you set a category display to 0, it hides that category from the forum home, so the same thing applies with TFH.. if a cat is set to 0 it will not display on forum home. I use the core forumhome functions currently. This will be changed in the next major version.

Hi bobster65, I posted earlier in this thread about this mod not working with the chatboxes available. I could not get it to work but now have it working with the latest chatbox version of the VSa - ChatBox. I apologise I never got back to you but I placed this on the back burner for a bit.

It is great to have this mod back in gear again after I always used it on vB 3.0 series. Thankyou again very much for bringing this mod back to life for the 4.0 series. This mod is handy in so many ways and I can not wait for the better updates coming.

OK, here's a good one for you!

I have installed the product, love it! Thank you!

But I just found something really quirky!

If any single forum category has 12 or more forums, neither that category NOR the All Categories module will display???

And to make it really interesting - ONLY inInternet Explorer!! Firefox works just fine..

Good luck with that one

I have updated to 4.0.2 and there are a few problems I have found.

For some reason when the tab mod is enabled the forums are locked, we can still post in them but this leads us to the next problem. Last post by on foum home does not change, if someone posts it does not show up (you can not tell if someone has posted in a thread unless you open the thread). The skin I am using is made for 4.0.2 also and I tried this on vB default skin and same probs happened.

I removed the template edits and kept the mod enabled and the fourm went back to normal on all skins.

I have not noticed anyone having these probs so I thought I would say something to see if anyone else is. I was hoping someone might have some thoughts on this.

Very Nice!! this may have been asked, but is it possible to make the "show all forums" module with a place to put forums you wish to exclude? This would save a bunch of time for those of us with many, many forums who don't want to have to list them all without the module.

Thanks

would be nice with a more advanced forum block manager now. So we can choose which forum block to appear on each of the tabs. If this is possible
