Tabbed Forum Home version 1.01

[AJAX] Tabbed Forum Home version 1.5.0 (BETA)

NOTE: Works with both 3.7x and 3.6x

Description: This MOD is for creating a "Tabbed" Forum Home Page to have Categories displayed within Tab containers (similar to what the new Profile System looks like on vb3.7). 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 without leaving the main forums page.

I wrote the initial Non AJAX version based on reading many requests from members asking about how namepros created their custom tabbed forum home page. The first implementation I did was a request by bbwforums.net (which you can visit to see a working example). I have shared this version with many members already and decided to release it since it seems to be something that a lot of members are interested in.

UPDATE: I have released a BETA [AJAX] version for those that what something a little more robust and easier to install/configure. This Beta version will never go into production tho as version 2.0 will utilize the YUI AJAX Tabview Toolset. It IS stable tho and is currently running on a few live sites.

NOTE: Keep in mind, I wrote this with the assumption that you are fairly well versed and comfortable with editing files/templates and following the flow of things. If there is something you don't understand, PLEASE let me know so that I can help you understand it. This IS NOT a product that a novice can just plug and play and it takes a little bit of time to setup, but its well worth it in the end (if you want a custom unique look to your forum home page)... the next version (Don't ask when, cause its just on the drawing board) will be a product with ACP controls for easy setup

The attached Zip File(s) contain the Files and Instructions necessary to install each version.

DEMO: www.bbwforums.net or www.namepros.com

Screen Shots: None, visit one or both of the above links as seeing them in action is better than some static image(s)..

Great mod, but I was wondering is it possible to have each tab have its OWN custom theme? So say I clicked on Tab1 it would have THEME1 I would click on TAB2 it would have THEME2, TAB 3 - theme 3, etc...

On your website main page edit the links in the cell to reflect the tab view of each cat... so on your index page for the Coding Help, instead of the link being

it should be

I checked you website and recorded each of your cell links, then matched them to your tab links on your forum.. Here is a list of what your links should be when you edit the cell addresses

Notice that the links are numbered according to the order in which you set them to be displayed.

Check the paths to your JS and CSS.

you mean changing the vB style as a whole, or just the Data within the Content DIV?

not sure what a "theme" is. is a "theme" the same thing as a vBulletin Style? If its a vbulletin style that you are wanting to change upon clicking on a tab, I suppose its possible to do that via AJAX....

Where can I check the paths?

Here's the code:

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

Although, that's the right place. Could someone possibly go into my forum and fix it for me? (Note that is the directory, however, it is located on a /forum directory; does that matter?)

Yes theme/style same thing

Do you know how to do this? I would be perfer to do it the manual way too if I knew how. (My site has pretty high traffic)
