[AJAX] Tabbed Forum Home

Tabbed Forum Home version 1.01

[AJAX] Tabbed Forum Home version 1.5.0 (BETA)

NOTE: Works with both 3.7x and 3.6x

Description: This MOD is for creating a "Tabbed" Forum Home Page to have Categories displayed within Tab containers (similar to what the new Profile System looks like on vb3.7). Please do not confuse this with the Tab Menu System here at vbulletin.org. They are totally different systems. These Tabs actually switch the content without leaving the main forums page.

I wrote the initial Non AJAX version based on reading many requests from members asking about how namepros created their custom tabbed forum home page. The first implementation I did was a request by bbwforums.net (which you can visit to see a working example). I have shared this version with many members already and decided to release it since it seems to be something that a lot of members are interested in.

UPDATE: I have released a BETA [AJAX] version for those that what something a little more robust and easier to install/configure. This Beta version will never go into production tho as version 2.0 will utilize the YUI AJAX Tabview Toolset. It IS stable tho and is currently running on a few live sites.

NOTE: Keep in mind, I wrote this with the assumption that you are fairly well versed and comfortable with editing files/templates and following the flow of things. If there is something you don't understand, PLEASE let me know so that I can help you understand it. This IS NOT a product that a novice can just plug and play and it takes a little bit of time to setup, but its well worth it in the end (if you want a custom unique look to your forum home page)... the next version (Don't ask when, cause its just on the drawing board) will be a product with ACP controls for easy setup

The attached Zip File(s) contain the Files and Instructions necessary to install each version.

DEMO: www.bbwforums.net or www.namepros.com

Screen Shots: None, visit one or both of the above links as seeing them in action is better than some static image(s)..

I am looking forward to the 2.0 modification. No rush!
Yeah, it will be AJAX.

Any help will be appreciated

Thanks!

I'm having an issue with the recent blogs module, it pulls the blogs and lists/displays them fine in the tabbed section, but when i click on the link, it's broken because it lists the link as:

www.sitename.com/forum/blog.php..... it should read:
www.sitename.com/fourmS/blog.php... with an 's' on forums...

can you point me in the right direction to fix this, thanks.

This cannot be done within 1.5, or 2.0 B1, but it is a planned feature for v2.0 Beta 2.

Only 3 people have v2.0: Me, Bree, and Bob. And once directions are written, it will be rereleased into the wild.

I wonder how I can fix the issue, that if there is no Javascript enabled (e.g. NoScript in use), how there can the forums be shown, without the actual tabbing. Any ideas? Or is it solved already? Using 1.5 AJAX'ed version.

I've done this by loading the forums the regular way, along with the ajax tabbed version, wrapping each in a separate div with the ajax by default being set to hidden, and then using javascript to change the ajax's div to visible and the regular version to be hidden. If this isn't fixed in v2.0 then I could see about posting instructions...
