Looks interesting! Does it require a complete navbar replacement?

No it uses the existing navbar to add the tabs to.

While I don't wish to be rude, but is this a copy of:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=233629 ?

There are VERY similar names & menu's in his and yours, with example:

- SSTab Advanced's Example 1
- vBNavTabs Example 1

---

- SSTab Advanced's Example 2
- vBNavTabs Example 2

---

- SSTab Advanced's Example 3
- vBNavTabs Example 3

I'm sorry, but so many menu & text are almost exactly the same. Which makes me believe you merely copied it and added new functions.

FF|Skyrider, that is not the case, I spent alot of time looking over every tab mod posted here on .org, and ever article written by the members on adding tabs to the site. Same thing Mr. Running pointed out. So I suppose because another coder use the term "Parent Tab" I am not allowed to use it?

While names and menues may look similar, I can assure you this is not that mod's code.

I spent many, many hours working on this modification, trying to make everythng work, and I am set back by you saying it is a copy. Quite a bit of the code used was pulled from other DBT mods, and changed up to work for this mod.

I can say I did use some layout looks from other mods, but that's it. The coding was written out, not copied from someone elses mod.

I know, it's cool, I can understand where you are coming from, but their is only so much you can do with a modification that uses vb coding standards to inject into the navbar.

I do appreciate you taking the time to point out your feelings, and I am happy that you are not accusing me of anything.

The more this mod is developed, the menus may change, depending on what functionality is added to the product.

Does this mod allow second level dropdowns? Doesn't seem like it from the description, but that's something people have been looking for. I know I would pay for such a mod.

I did test it with a few custom themes, as long as the style coded the navbar to vb standards it should work.

Not at this time, it is something that will be looked into for a future version.

This looks like the tab mod we've been searching for for a long time. Will be nice being able to switch the tabs we've had to hack into the menu into this. First addon I think we'll be instaling once we've finished testing our vB4.1.8 upgrade.

Is the second navbar feature something meant to be in the Lite version? I notice that it's referred to in the admin panel options, but there's no instructions for it in the readme as it says there should be.

The second navbar is a Pro only feature.

I know Hi-Velocity might be a sponsor or an affiliate for you, but isn't this a bit much advertising your company and then advertising a hosting company on top of it too?

Dragonbyte makes great mods, but all the copyrights on the footers are just killers.
