What Does This Hack Do?

This hack gives you an easy way to add custom tabs, links and submenu links to the end of the NavBar. This hack has been stable since I wrote it in November 2009 and does exactly what it says on the tin. The first release of the commercial version was actually based on this version with the addition of the impex feature (which has been removed again before being released here as a Lite version).

This hack will not allow you any control over the already existing default tabs, links and submenu links added by vBulletin (Classic or Publishing Suite) nor any other third-party add-on that adds it's own tabs, links and submenu links.

Tab and Link Manager Lite offers you the following functionality:
  • Installation type: Co-existence Mode - where the default NavBar tabs/links/submenu links run side-by-side with T&LM engine.
  • Add/Edit/Delete a tab.
  • Add/Edit/Delete a link.
  • Add/Edit/Delete a submenu link.
  • Tabs, links and submenu links can be individually controlled by usergroup permissions.
  • Tabs, links or submenu links will not be viewable to users not in an authorised usergroup.
  • You can change the display order for individual tabs, links and submenu links.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question:
It doesn't work! Help!!!
Answer:
That does not help others help you. Please explain exactly what the issue is, give as much information as possible and that may aid others in helping you.
Question:
I have vBulletin 4.2.0 (or above) installed, will the new Navigation Manager included in vBulletin work with Tab and Link Manager Lite?
Answer:[INDENT]The short answer is no it will not, as the Navigation Manager replicates the functions in Tab and Link Manager Lite in its entirety and you may as well use the Navigation Manager instead of this hack.

Navigation Manger is not included with vBulletin 4.1.12 (and lower), so you are fine using this hack.

Question:
"My tabs do not highlight".... "my links or submenu links do not show up".... "when I click on a link or submenu link my tab does not stay highlighted, but highlights another tab" Help!!!!
Answer:
Information as to why any of the above are probably happening is laid out in the following post here.
Question:
I don't like the copyright branding at the bottom of every page generated by hack, what can I do?
Answer:
The only option if you want to use this hack without copyright branding is to uninstall the hack and not using it at all.

vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack (Lite version) can be used with vBulletin versions 4.0.0 - 4.1.12.

For vBulletin versions 4.2.0 and above, you should use vBulletin's integrated Navigation Manager instead of this version.

This product will NOT work with 3.8.x and earlier as the new NavBar was not introduced until 4.0.0.



Hack Support

IMPORTANT: This hack is no longer supported.



Branding

There is a small unobtrusive block of copyright branding text at the bottom of each page generated by this hack, which is there to promote my work and allow you to use this hack for free.

You are NOT allowed to remove my copyright branding from this hack.


Install/Upgrade/Uninstall Instructions

The readme_tab_and_link_manager_lite.html instructions file is included in attached .zip file. You will need to open this file in a web browser.

See this post.

As shown in the picture above, the tabs in this case are Forum, What's New and Tab & Link Manager Lite (which is highlighted).

Yes.

Tabs are always associated with a URL, see this post.

Hi Mosh,

I had the private support thread over at your site before you closed the paid support. I had asked how to add a "Thread's You're In" link and you provided me with the necessary code but now they are locked and I can't view it.

Could you paste the link code here please? Thank you!

I can not provide paid support here..... the reason why you do not have access to your paid product is because your Tab and Link Manager download/support access expired over a month ago and you will need to renew it at Wolfshead Solutions to gain access again.

If you need to discuss this further you will need to post at Wolfshead Solutions because of vBulletin.org rules.

Oh, I thought I saw a post you made saying paid support was discontinued and to direct all inquiries here.

I don't need any update downloads or anything, I was just hoping you could tell me the url to use in my tab for showing a member posts they're in, thanks.

That was for my vBulletin.org hacks when I provided support at Wolfshead Solutions for them (which I no longer do). But, you purchased the commercial version of this hack and your yearly download/support access has expired. I have never provided you support for the Lite version (here or at Wolfshead Solutions)..... I can not help or talk about the commercial version here (as per vBulletin.org rules), so please do not ask again.

Yes, you may as well, as the new Navigation Manager included with vBulletin 4.2.0 and above does about the same thing this Lite version does..... so no point leaving it installed.
