[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)..

whitespace

Lots of people have request the answer to this. Ive search through. I even found the post that said 'search white space' -- I did that as well.. found many people with this same question that went unanswered. Hopefully someone can help. Id like to remove the white space or space between the categories of my forum... it doesnt happen on cat=1 but everyone after that has space before and after.



any help would be appreciated.. any link to someone who got help, would be appreciated as well.

Not without modification to the core vB code unfortunately. AWJunkies was working on something along those lines, however, I've not had a chat with him in awhile as we've both been super busy.

Create a thread in the request for paid services forum. There are plenty of coders here that could install this for you.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for the suggestion.

Is it okay if I asked you to install it for a fee since this is your product?

bobster,

What blog feed are you using to get the blog post to go into a link and show up in the forums on the developer site? Is that done manually or is that a mod. Thanks

are you asking about SmnLikDat site? If so, we are running TFH v2 on that site and it has the capabilities of assigning content modules to tabs along with Forums.. there are a bunch of different modules (Recent Threads, Blogs, Project Tools, Photo Albums etc) and you can build your own content files and upload them as modules to use with it. Also, any content modules built for my other Tabbed Mods will work with TFH v2 ...
