Plugin causes the following error when enabled (identifying info removed). It is heavily customized, and it had been working on our test forum, so we're expecting it's some kind of conflict with an another addon. Not certain however.

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/[accountonserver]/public_html/[forumdirectory]/includes/class_bootstrap.php(414) : eval()'d code on line 345

Hey guys ran into an issue. Maybe Im just blind but I cant find where you add the tabs.

Under AdminCp > Options > Tabs Add System for vBulletin 4 by vbSoporte

it only allows me to set options like Active, Hide "FORUM" tab?, Hide "BLOG" tab?, ect .... but no place to add tabs.

I looked on the left frame to see if it created a new section and dont see anything.

Any ideas?

One issue that I cant seem to figure out and though you guys might be able to help me with.

Im using VBadvanced, and the mod is working fine with it except for one part. I choose to hide the "Whats New" tab, and mod is hiding it on every page except for the cmps_index.php page. Anyone have any ideas?

I have added two tabs but they are not being highlighted, the highlighting stays on Forum. As the two added tabs are working correctly and are both sub forums with the Forum section is this normal behaviour.

Also if I try to disable the Forum tab with this mod it is still visible. I would like to disable Forum and add a new tab called Forum Categories to make it easier for my members to understand.

Another issue....

I tried to un-install this product using the Products Un-install option.

It seems to un-install but still leaves some garbled text in the ACP menu.

How do I un-install this product correctly.

After reading through 30 of the pages in this thread I am still non the wiser.

All I want to do is add two tabs called Discussions & Repair Tips. Both are forums.
They work but will not highlight.
I see lots of THIS_SCRIPT being talked about but how do I find the right names to put in the boxes for these two forum names.

Why is there not a simple guide to explain how to do this?

Surely that is what most of us need. And why this isn't a standard vb feature is beyond belief.

I tried various suggestions using php that is there like admincp.php.

None of the things I tried allowed the tab to be highlighted.

Un-installed until someone can explain more.

In desperation I re-installed.

I did the following.

Viewed the source code of the forum page I wanted the tab to take me to.

I called the tab Discussions
I entered the url as forumdisplay.php?f=4 as this was in the source code of the forum page.
I selected THIS_SCRIPT
I entered forumdisplay as the THIS_SCRIPT value.
I selected Target as _self

This new tab takes me to the correct page and is now highlighted......


When I now click on Forum and then click on any of the sub forums the Discussions tab is highlighted when the highlighting should stay on Forum.

So I am very close but no cigar.

Can anyone help with the solution please?

Maybe I am not understanding how to set this up.
I am trying to set up a Gallery tab that also has Sub Tab Links.
After I have set this all up and click on the Gallery Tab it goes to my gallery but my Forum tab is the one that is highlighted and the Sub Tab Links display for my default forum.

How do I do this so that the Gallery Tab is highlighted and it displays my Gallery Sub Tab Links?
