What this mod does is allows admins to add custom tabbars to Forumhome,,,Gallery or CMPS navbar templates... With customization you can also add it to other areas of your site...

ATTENTION:
*********
Before installing or updating,,, download and read tutorial...

Primary setup consists of uploading minitabs images folder to your forum images folder...

FIXED CMPS with better dropdown options

If you want to add to your CMPS,,, You must upload minitabs images folder to your domain root...
http://yoursite.com/images/minitabbar/
Goto CMPS and open main options / global varible...>>> Add $var $minitabbar1 or minitabbar1 so that it will show on frontpage...save...


If you want to add to your Gallery,,, You must upload minitabs images folder to your gallery root...
http://yoursite.com/gallery/images/minitabs/

If you want to add to your Forum,,, You must upload minitabs images folder to your Forum root...
http://yoursite.com/forums/images/minitabs/

*************************************************************

Step {2}

Goto Admincp and open products and install xml plugin with admin options on/off...

Goto vbsettings at top of admincp and find Minitabs and open...


View options and setup URL's
View options and setup Tooltip text
View options and setup Name of each tabbar
View options and setup CSS color of text
View options and setup Color type of tabbar from over 30 colors
View options and setup Font family type
View options and setup Font size
View options and setup Hover color link text
View options and setup No hover color link text


*************************************************************

Step {3}

Goto vbsettings at top of admincp and find Minitabbars and open...

Setup correct path so that your images will show correctly...

images/minitabs/spacer.gif = http://yoursite.com/forums/images/minitabs/spacer.gif

Place main images folder {{{ minitabs }}} = http://yoursite.com/forums/images/minitabs/

Place main images folder {{{ minitabs }}} = http://forums/images/minitabs/yoursite.com/

Second option may need customization to xml...

*************************************************************

Step {4}

Popups? This mod uses the default vbulletin dropdown menu...
Some of my other mods don't work well with vbulletin default dropdown menus... other type {Chrome}?

Adding popups code to text window...
******************************

UPDATED Dropdowns to work on all TEN minitabbars
added the ability to turn on/off all eight dropdowns...
added the ability to control register and ID names on all TEN dropdowns...


***********************************************************************
demo dropdown menu code that works with all TEN minitabbars ...

TrikkeTalk
09 Apr 2008, 02:18
Hi,

Works brilliant, even on 3.6.8, with one exeption, can't get it to work on my VBA portal page. What am I doing wrong?

Never mind, I forgot to add minitabbar1 to the VBA "Output Global Variables" :o, problem solved!!!

So, this Mod works just fine, also on 3.6.8

I wont be using this for my boards mainly becuase I not a big fan of all the colors but think this is a really nice mod.

GrendelKhan{TSU

love the concept... but style doesn't match my board.

is it easy to make/apply different tab styles? I'm all over if so. :)

tmiland thanks for the tab images,,, I will put them in the next tab pack for tab menus...

Releasing a Inverted tabbar sets at the end of the week...

By the way U can use only same COLOR or RAINBOW for all minitabbars

Edit CSS files in clientsript so that TEXT color and size change...

Thanks 2 ALL Thanks;)

I can work on a slue of tabs for you, but is it possible to have the product take the style of the tabs from the skin, like vB does with its user profile tabs?

Butcher
09 Apr 2008, 12:28
nice hack but unfortunately the tabs simply won't fit any style. a better control over the tabs colour would make this far better

indie2industry
09 Apr 2008, 14:13
Are there any limits to how many tabs you can have??

DDad
09 Apr 2008, 14:54
Install was easy on our test forum but I couldn't get any of your colors to go with our forum. If you add some straight forward one I can use it.

I must say I like it! I'm still trying to use it!

This works with any Tabs sets,,, just upload your CSS files to clientscript folder and your images to the minitabbars folder and insert your code into options textarea and save...

*****************************************************

Several big sites are using other tab set like http://www.satelliteguys.us and others...

therogueforums that would B nice 2 have other sets 2 choice from,,, give it a go...

*****************************************************

Ddad give me your site link and I will try 2 match colors 4 you...


*****************************************************

Folks this mod isn't perfect,,, its only a minor update from my 3.6 version,,, but it does help managing your TAB SETS much easier...


You can turn them on or off
You add your own SETs if you like
Change font, link colors and size of text
U can also use vbulletin default CSS * makes tabbars expand
It will fit most styles with right setup


I will B releasing Inverted Tabbars update soon...:)

Since last night, I am fiddeling around with this mod and I do have a few questions:

Can we have pulldown menues on all tabs?
The tabs don't show in vbadvanced CMPS
In photopost, you can see the tab names, but not the tabs


It's a nice mod and life would be much easier with using this, instead of doing it by hand.
Thanks for all the work done. :)

**************************************************

peterle1,,,
Yes ,,, all tabs can show vbulletin default pulldowns,,, but U will have to modify your the dropdown code... I will update this so that all will have a easier time installing and making changes...

In vbadvanced they will show,,, but you will have to use global option var in CMPS options and then next upload another set of images to the MAIN root of your domain... >>> http://yoursite.com instead of http://yoursite.com/forums/...

Same with your Gallery,,, U will have to upload a set of images to that MAIN root of your gallery,,, the same as adding a style 2 your gallery...


**************************************************

xlegends,,,
I have been working on other stuff and stopped testing this one,,, but if you uploaded all images including the spacer file,,, then it should work fine,,, but it could be something else...

Check that you loaded the global option in CMPS???

**************************************************

I will do another update with better error checking and post more details on how to fix if problems with CMPS,,, Gallery or Forums...

Thanks again for your help. :o

peterle1,,,

Adding more popups and X-out the 8th Tabbar?

Goto your admincp and open styles manager...
Goto minitabbars templates group and find this template...>>> mini_tabbars_html
Open template;)


What you want to do is edit the <TD id="edit here with new dropmenu name"> per tab...
Next add this code per tab so that the javascript will activate the dropdown...>>>
<script type="text/javascript"> vbmenu_register("edit here with new dropmenu name]"); </script>

Where the hec do I add the above code you say?
Look at code below and find javascript,,, thats where you will add it per tab...


<if condition="$show['popups']">
<td class="minitabbarttclass"><img src="images/minitabs/tabbar_left$vboptions[minitabbar_colornum3].gif" height="27" width="10"></td>
<td id="$vboptions[mini_tabbars_popups1]" class="minitabbarttclass" background="images/minitabs/tabbar_middle$vboptions[minitabbar_colornum3].gif" nowrap="nowrap" valign="top"><img src="$vboptions[mini_tabbars_spacerimage]" height="9" width="1"><br><a class="minitabbarselect" href="$vboptions[url_minitabbar_href3]" title="$vboptions[title_minitabbars_info3]">$titleminitabbar3</a><script type="text/javascript"> vbmenu_register("$vboptions[mini_tabbars_popups1]"); </script></if></td>
<td class="minitabbarttclass"><img src="images/minitabs/tabbar_right$vboptions[minitabbar_colornum3].gif" height="27" width="10"></td>

Goto styles manager again and open minitabbars group,,, find dropdown template and open..

After that add your dropdown code into the dropdown template so that it matches your ID and REGISTER names...
??????????????

*******************
Deleting the 8th tabbar?
*******************
Open styles manager and find minitabbars group,,, open mini_tabbars_html template and look at bottom of code and delete only the end tabbar or you can comment it out with //* at the begining and *// at the end...
??????????????

Got it, one should read, what you wrote in your first post.
Your too fast for me. :rolleyes:

But I didn't quite understood this part:

Goto CMPS and add $minitabbar1 or minitabbar1 to global option in main options... save


Where is that?

Found it ... minitabbar1 fits best. With the $ it wont work.
Haven't got the tabs yet, but I can see the words of the tabs. I will upload the tabset ...
Works flawlessly. :)

Now I have to learn how to our old tabs with that mod ... :p

peterle1,,,
vBadvanced CMPS has a nice little option that requires the GLOBAL $var only from vBulletin so that it will process and eval onto frontpage... So I had to revamp this mod to interact with it...

By the way,,, Brian is doing a great job over at vBadvanced and he deserves much credit,,, so folks please support with KEEP the BALL rolling...:up:

Ok,,, installing the new CMPS update???
*******************************


Install new PLUGIN and overwrite old...
Upload your images to your CMPS root...
Goto CMPS options and open default options...
Look for Main Options and open...


Look for Global varibles and insert both $vars below... >>>
$minitabbar1 or minitabbar1
$minitabbarpopups or minitabbarpopups
Don't forget to hit the return carraige after each insertion...

$minitabbar1 also in navbar below <br/> at top of navbar template...

*******************************
The first $var prints out the minitabbars and the second $var adds the dropdowns...

Good Luck 2 ya!!!

17 May 2008, 05:49
Upload your images to your CMPS root...


I uploaded the minitabbar-folder with the images in an images directory and it works.
My first try was to upload the files only to the root of vbadvanced and this didn't work.

Photopost gallery and classifieds work without problems.

Any hints for using othe tab pictures? :o

You wrote:
<div class="vbmenu_popup" id="navbar_news_updates_menu" style="display:none">
but navbar_news_updates isn't in your Navbar dropdown titles so it breaks your demo.

You can change the titles instead.

Thanks for looking. :)

Maybe a dumb question, but what is the difference between this mod here and your Tabbar Suite? :confused:

peterle1,,,
YES there is peterle1...

The difference is that this Mod works very well with the default vBULLETIN dropdown javasrcipt... WHY???
Because it uses three images and a spacer image,,, and its inclosed within a table which allows more flexiblility to add other images without causing issues with javascipt loading...

Tabbarsuite and Invertedtabbars use TWO images to create tabbar,,, both dont work well with vBULLETIN dropdown javasrcipt,,, because they use div's and li's,,, not tables...

There are other differences with color editing and ability to make changes to CSS...

peterle1
08 Jun 2008, 10:41
nice hack but unfortunately the tabs simply won't fit any style. a better control over the tabs colour would make this far better

You can take a look at the tabs the mod offers and very easily create your own ones.
The only thing important I have found doing so, is the size of the pictures used as tabs and that there have to be three pictures for one tab.

Are there any limits to how many tabs you can have??

Not really, you can edit the mini_tabbars_html template and add as many tabs as you like, but you have to hard code it in the template.

What do you mean by "don't work well"?
The design is different, but I haven't found any problems with the functionality of the drop down menues.

peterle1,,,
Tabbarsuite and Invertedtabbars probably can work with vBulletin standard dropdown menu's,,, but after I've spent hours trying to make them work together,,, I finally gave up and found another option...CHROME DD... working ok...

vBulletin standard dropdowns work extremely well with Minitabbars... It has something to do with the image icon setup in the menu.js file...

I have contacted Deepdog009 about the the issue with IE7 showing this error:

'this.controlobj' is a null or not an object

Im gussing its the headinclude template that comes with the plugin, but the html template is pretty big as well... Can't find whats causing this.

Your problem with links?

It's probably the dropdowns affecting links...
Try turning dropdowns off or edit out all dropdown's in options...
Uninstall & Reinstall,,, that might do the trick...

what does cmps mean...

CMPS refers to:
http://www.vbadvanced.com/products.php?do=productinfo&productid=4

and this is no silly question.
vbadvanced needs some configurations which weren't in the mod some time ago.

It works in the forum, vbadvanced and photoshop - as far as I can see and I have tested it.

it isnt the dropdown links this has issues on vbadvanced - some links do not work even when linked correctly but as soon as you deactivate dropdown they work, in other words the standard links via the tab will work when dropdowns are deactivated but things go strange when dropdown is activated even when they are correct....................
