You're probably getting tired of seeing my handle, aren't you?



OK, is there a way to adjust the width of a drop down?

See attached screenshot.

Hello, first off let me say that this mod does look very good and would be great for a site that I am doing. Being new to the vB environment I have a question about this before purchasing if the owner agrees. I was looking at the links from your website and like the look and feel of the setup they are using here : http://www.personalitynation.com/ and one of the others was similar but had pictures inside of it. My question is would that be something that is doable right out of the box so to speak with this mod or did they also require any other mods or customized work to get it to look something similar to that? I imagine the free version here is just your basic dropdowns that vB does not supply?


Cheers,
BriShi

Yes the pro version does allow you to add icons to the tabs, dropdown items and the sublinks created with this mod. As far as the link you posted, the navbar is not moveable to the top of the header it is in the default location.

Thanks Chris, the other thing I just noticed when I downloaded the lite version just to try on my test site is the instructions state to upload all the files from the "upload" folder to the forums directory. Just so I am clear on this we take just the files themselves or the folders that they are already in inside of the "upload" folder, because there is already an admincp folder in the directory. Sorry if that sounds dumb but I just want to be clear.

So the pro version menu could look like the SDN site that you have listed on your website straight out of the box? http://studentdoctor.net/

You can do the folders as it will only add the files contained in those folders into the existing folders, or write the entire folder if it don't exist.

No that site has a navbar set up different, probably hard coded with css, the navbar will look more like the one on the DBT site, which you of course can add the images to.

Thanks again Chris, I just got the lite installed for now and am going to test it out a little bit and show the website owner and will go from there.

Creating Page for Tab

Hello, I just installed your product. I have used it to create a "Videos" tab that links to "video.php".

Now, what do I do to create "video.php" that uses the same template as the rest of my VBulletin CMS website?

For example, I know I could just upload a "video.php" file, but it would not be in my VBulletin template, so what do I do to create a page that is enclosed in my template? I'm sure this is super easy, I just don't know the procedure.

Thanks,

David

Thanks DragonByte Tech. I tried http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...highlight=easy. The only issue I am having now is that the tab that I made with vBNavTabs is not getting highlighted when the tab is clicked on like the other tabs. Is there a way to make it stay highlighted after it is clicked on?

Just to clarify, the URL that I am linking to is pages.php?pageid=3. I used URL_PARAMETER for Tab Mode, and THIS_SCRIPT_VALUE is blank right now, do I need to fill something in that field?

Thanks.
