vB Version: 4.1.11 Rating: (103 votes - 4.56 average) Installs: 444

Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files Translations Is in Beta Stage  

[YUI] Tabbed Forum Home (TFH) version 4.0.8
vBulletin version: 4.1.11 - 4.2.0
Older versions need original mod for now

Description:
This MOD is for creating a "Tabbed" Forum Home Page to have Categories and other Data types (via Modules) displayed within Tab containers. 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 via AJAX without leaving the main forums page.

This is an entirely new version of TFH and only works with vB4. Management is all done via the Admin CP.

Installation is done in 3 simple steps. Upload files, Import product, 3 easy Template Edits.

Setup is now a breeze via the Tabs option in the Admin CP.

The attached Zip File contains the Files and Instructions necessary to install.

Incompatible mods
Two columns of categories - http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=275114

Upgrading to 4.0.7+ from previous versions
We have had to change the mod's id which means when you install this time you will have 2 mods, the new version with its new id and the old version.
Both can run side by side but shouldnt to save processing time.

To migrate:
Install the latest version and upload all the files (no conflicts to worry about)
Install the latest product xml
Follow the template changes in the upgrade txt
Create your tabs in the new admincp menu option "EG: Tabbed Forum Home" to mirror the existing "Tabbed Forum Home" menu.
Once done uninstall the product "Tabbed Forum Home" with productid bobster_tfh (old mod id)

Announcement Category - always showing

Tabbed Forum Home TABS - for visitors to tab through

Admin Category - always showing for admins

Are you able to provide me with the code or tell me what to do to get it set up like this? (Remember I am not a coding expert just a newbie)
I got your 3.8 site working like a charm (check it out). Still messing around with being able to pull it of with vb4. getting closer tho

Working on a decent solution for that. The thing is, some people don't want this installed on all styles. Some prefer to only have it installed on a child forum, so auto template edits would make that a mess.

This is a possibility that we've looked into. Its on the drawing board, but isn't even close to being implemented.

I 've made 15 tabs and i would like to separate them in different rows
For example i would like to have 5 in first row, 5 in second and 10 in third

I also would like to align tabs to the center of my forum instead to the left that is now.
Its doable, but would take some serious modifications. I'll put it on the to do list of things to look into.

It works fine on 4.0.1 and was released based on 4.0.1 if anything it will have problems on version lower than 4.0.1

I just looked at your site, you have some funky template issues. First, it appears that you have two main outputs on your FORUMHOME Template. Can't tell if that is because you have it placed once on FORUMHOME and FORUMHOMETAB, but its messed up. I'd have to take a look at your template edits to see what is going on.

Hello Bobster,

I have this installed on vb4 and vbacmps4. When I integrate a page with modules from vba the tab system disappears. Any idea?

Thanks,
Itworx4me

That I'll have to look into. I have not messed around with the new vBa yet. Might have some time this weekend to slap it on one of my dev instances and take a look. Is integration just like it was before? if so, you might try and add "indexTFH" in the "this script" part of it to see if that makes it work.
