Usually getting it to work is just a matter of tweaking the style IDs and CSS classes. If you have any issues let me know and I'll do what I can to help.

Hello! I've been trying to add this to our site for a few days and no tabs I make seem to work. I have added forums to the staff tab and added the staff usergroups to view it but when I click it the category shows up, but the forums within it are absent. Also, when we click "All" it doesn't load the entire forum. It usually takes a hard refresh. I have it disabled for now but I will re-enable it if you feel like helping. Thanks for the great addons!

This sounds interesting.

First thing to check with the tabs is that you've included the main parent category along with the forums you want to use. So as an example let's say you have the forums below (a - indicating a sub level and the numbers reflecting the ID of the forums):

Category 1
- Forum 5
- Forum 6
-- Subforum 11
-- Subforum 12
- Forum 7
Category 2
- Forum 8
-- Subforum 13
-- Subforum 14
Category 3
- Forum 9
Category 4
- Forum 10

To make Forum 10 and Subforum 14 appear, you'd need to have Category 2, Forum 8, Subforum 14, Category 14 and Forum 10 selected. Usually forums not appearing is related to not including the parent forums and categories.

Regarding the pages requiring a hard refresh to appear, it might be you need to disable this setting:
AJAX Tabs Quick Load

That setting is designed to speed up the AJAX page load by only loading forum data. But some other plugins and mods require hooks that don't exist in that quick method. Disabling it might help fix that.

If those don't work, feel free to PM me some login information and I'll take a look at your setup. You can do that here or to my username Mokonzi on the http://www.dragonbyte-tech.com forums.

Hope this helps.

Matt

This does not guarantee the mod is error free on PHP 5.4, but it will take care of the reported errors. Thank you all for your reports

Was this hotfix applied to the pro version on your site as I have the latest version installed of this Mod 1.09 running vb4.4 with PHP 5.4.27 and it was working fine until I applied the latest patch from vb4.2.3 to vb4.2.4 now I get the same error as above.


I have had to disable all modifications to get into the ACP then turn this Modification off otherwise its a blank page with this message.

You would get better response time asking on their site, they only check here once a week or so.

Can I have a response from DB please?

I have two Pro modifications down since the latest patch from VB and from past experience with support on their site I would prefer support here out in the open.

Thanks.
