[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)

Two questions:

How it deals with sub-forums ? Considering I have 3-4 levels of child forums. Will it show up sub-forums just like standard ?

If I select 'All Forums', does it show Forumhome just like standard looking ?

Thanks

If I change templates, the old forum icons remain.
Also - i can no longer double-click the forum icon to mark it as read. (and when you hover over the forum icon, it no longer says "double click to mark this forum as read).

I know you want bug reports to the other forum, but I havent had a chance to sign up for it.

I just need to know how to change style of tabs.
for those who can not make it work with vbseo, i m using vb4.0.1 and vbseo 3.5 rc1 .. and it works perfectly fine...
and as far as seo ranking concern, i would suggest, use this hack for Logged in users only... so it will not do anything to your Seo Ranking.

Cheers

Same for me. The additional members of a usergroup do not see the tabs, only primary members. Awesome mod though. I got it all working. The only bad part was that I couldn't update the forumhome_forumbit_level1_post with the Template Modification Manager. It kept erroring out so I had to do that template manually. Oh well.

I personally have no problems with it. I modified the original hack so it would ignore Search Engines

i meant to say, use this hack for registered users only, so bots cant see the changes...
leave the default setting for unregistered and bots..

therefore it will only change the source code for registered users only, bots will have nothing to do with this hack..

Okay .. this works perfectly on firefox for me ..

But on IE .. the "whats going on box" doesn't move .. it stays so far down from the tabs .. which makes the 1st tab look ok .. but when u click on other tabs ..the "whats going on box" doesnt move down to make room .. the foums show underneath the box ..

And altho i have permissions set for all groups to see the tabs .. when being a guest .. it shows the tabs but not what the tabs contain properly..

But like i say works perfectly in Firefox ..



edit ish: mite be stupid mistake lol but had the sidebar turned off ..once enabled ..in IE the tabs loaded perfectly .. only thing now is the side bar when closed doesn't expand the forum to fill where the sidebar was.... not sure if this is due to this mod or due to the custom skin ... any ideas?
