[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)

Could somebody help me? (I am new to this stuff)
I am installing this great mod and I am not sure what to do next...
I am on step 3:
STEP 3. Open the Template Edits Text File and apply the 6 Edits to the 3 Templates specified within the document. You will need to apply these edits to each STYLE that you wish to have a Tabbed Forum Home on.
Could somebody explain what I have to edit? (Step-by-step please)

Chris,

First, take notice of the part that reads, "you'll have to apply these template edits to each style you have."

I say that because I didn't pay enough attention at first to this and then when I installed the mod on my default style I couldn't figure out why I had some issues with my custom styles. (Which I still am, but that's a seperate issue.)

What you'll need to do is this:

In whatever style you want to install this mod on:

1. Under Styles and Templates in the ACP (admin control panel)
- Click on Style Manager
- For the style you want to install the mod on, to the far right you'll see a drop down box. Click on that and select "Edit Templates"
- On the left hand side you'll see all kinds of templates and template categories. You'll want to locate the category labeled, "Forum Home Templates >>"
- Double-click on that.
- Then you'll be looking for each of the actual templates that the instructions refer to.

2. In the folder for this mod that includes all the files, open up the document that is labeled "Template Edits."
- You'll see each template you'll need to edit in here.
- For example:
=========================
FORUMHOME TEMPLATE EDIT 1
=========================

That means you'll need to look under the template, FORUMHOME and follow his instructions precisely. Don't forget to click on "save" at the bottom of the page after you make the necessary changes. Then refresh your forum home page to see the effects from your edits.

If all else fails, I'll be working on solving a seperate problem I'm having with this mod and a particular style today, so you may catch me in front of the computer. My AIM is "pjskiboy" or Gtalk is "pjskiboy". I'll help you out if you catch me online. Just instant message me. (I'm having a soft heart because I remember when I first started messing with this stuff and I was completely lost. Now I'm only slightly lost at times, lol.)

Now, for my particular issue with this mod. And it appears to be relegated to the Blackened custom style. I posted the following post in the thread for that style as well.

OK, i figured out the issue with the mgc_chatbox mod not displaying the images in the chatbox itself. I didn't read carefully enough in regards to the part of you having to copy the images folder over to the styles folder for EACH style you use. Derrrrrr....... So I got that squared away.

I'm still left with this:



It's almost like padding somewhere in between the forum categories, but no idea where to look in the templates to be able to at least change the background color. Could I possibly change the background color of the forums to match and solve this problem? (hopefully just answered my own question.....)

update

Just tried looking through the Stylevars, but I don't see anything at first.

Also, when I inspect the page source for that area that I have circled, it is include in the <div class="yui-dispatchable"> selection.

The guy that created the style actually looked at that issue the other day and he was able to provide a solution. While it corrects that white space for that particular style, it will mess up any other styles you have selectable by your forum members.

If you are interested, PM me and I'll give you the info he gave me.

Suggestion: It would be nice to add the tab colors class in stylevar
Hello ,great mod, Thank you.

But I think its necessary to resolve this problem with collapse button. For example I need to make tabs with different forums and different categories each forum.

Collapse button is very important.

Regards.

I have been fighting this thing, double and triple checking my install and template edits. I started disabling mods and was walking all around my problem. I decided to start reading every single post to find a possible solution and I finally find you at post #325!!!

Thank you, it works now and at least I know I'm not crazy... Disabled optimizer on test board and it finally starts working. Now on to the .css color issue... WHEW!

Is it possible to get the AJAX content instantly loaded, by caching the data every X minutes?

The loading of the tabbed content takes a lot of time. I rather have some delay in showing the last posts, than having to wait on the tabbed content to load, at every click.

so later on in the class_yui.php the explode(",", $tab['limitTo']) is checking for only the primary group, causing the ones with secondary usergroups not to view the tab.

I fixed my copy, but in my opinion this mod is way too nice for me to remain silent.

My solution is not the final solution. It works for me as I only have one secondary usergroup, the customer group.

A permanent solution would be to send just the $vbulletin->userinfo array and to replace the call with

if (is_member_of($this->usergroup, $tab['limitTo']))
what did you do to fix this as i am having hte same issue

same with this....is there a solution?
