It seems to be this addon... I have had a look at the plugin which controls the tabs. There are some empty tags in it but I couldn't manage to find this empty tag, yet. ;-)

Does not work on VB 4.1.7 patch level 2.

Gave syntax errors all over my page and killed my vBa page. Had to uninstall.

Tagged for now. Hopefully someone will be able to fix it.

I installed this over 4.1.7 PL 2 and did not get errors as you did.
The mod really does not work as anticipated though so I will have to uninstall.

Nice mod. I have a tab created with sub-links, and I'd like for one of the sub-links to be a menu (sub-menu). Does anyone know if this is possible?

I don't mean I want the tab itself to be a menu, but rather one of the sub-links that appear below the nav bar.

Question- When I create the Tab Sub-links, and click on a custom tab, it's not showing up. The tab is linked to a section in a forum, but the same sub tabs you'll find on the forum section are showing up. How do you fix it so that the sub tabs you created are showing up?

I have installed it with vb 4.1.8. I am not able to highlight the selected tab. Consider I have three tabs, all of them linked to a vb section (content.php?xxx). I tried to work with url and url parameters without results. Can anybody helpme?

No updates since January? I'll assume this mod is quite dead?

Does anyone know of a good alternative? The other project I'm aware of is equally as dead.

What kind of updates do U need? Compatibility updates? In this case you don't need any because it's working fine in vb.4.1.8

Yes, seems to work fine in 4.1.8..

But i do have a question, & im not sure it has anything to do with this mod or not, but the drop down windows are HUGE.!!
How can i make them smaller.?

This ios how they are supposed to look..
UNLIKE ^this^ example...
See inside the red circle with the two option in a drop down window, the box (blank area) around the text is about 4x bigger than the text itself on my site. (actually the width is fine, but the height is way too big)

Would that be able to be edited in the additional.css or.?

Thanks for any help
