DragonByte Forum Tabs organizes the forum home page and it's forum content into Categories and AJAX Powered Tabs and includes a customizable Favourites Tab and a template editing free install.

Uses

Organizing the forums on the forum home into Tabs and those Tabs into Categories allows administrators to organize their content and reduce the length of the forum list. With AJAX powered Tabs as well as one click Favouriting of forums to add to a user's personal Favourites Tab, DFT makes navigating the forum home a more pleasant and customizable experience for users and admins alike.

Category Tabs can also have different styling allowing for very different looking sections to your forum home page. Tabs are remembered when coming back to the forum home page.

Installation is simple and includes no template edits.

Just posting from my personal account here, but in checking the download just now it has the class_install.php file in the correct place. Try verifying the files have been placed in the correct locations and redownload from here if there is a missing file perhaps due to a corrupt download.

Tonight's release of DragonByte Forum Tabs to v1.0.4 fixes a number of minor issues as well as adding a couple of mini features to further enhance #DFT . The main new features is that now Notices can be added to display in a Category Tab, thereby showing it across every AJAX Tab in that Category. Full fix list is as follows:

Feature: Can set in the Admin Control Panel the default setting for 'Add Forum Automatically to User's Favourites' on adding new forums.
Feature: Can set notices to appear when viewing a category.
Fixed: Stuck on tab when viewing forum in a mobile style.
Fixed: Several issues with notices displaying incorrectly.

Thanks as always to everyone for their feedback and suggestions, I'll be looking at incorporating them in the coming weeks.

Released a bug fix (v1.0.5) for DragonByte Forum Tabs (#DFT) to fix an issue with Favourites in some MySQL setups.

Fixed: A bug where in some instances the Favourites threw out a database error.

Hello. I've downloaded and installed the mod and adjusted the settings to make tabs appear, but they are nowhere to be found on my forum. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Have version 4.0.8.

Definitely have tabs and categories created. What could be wrong?

I have a dark themed, forum, trying to figure out where I need to make CSS edits. Any idea where I can look?

NVM I found it using the style varible editor.

Do you have this problem if you look at the forum with a Default style? What settings have you adjusted during the setup?

AJAX Tabs need to have a parent Category Tab, and both need to be marked as active.

If you want to create an account for me to look at the settings in the ACP, please PM me the website location, along with a username and password and I'll take a look.

G'day mate,
I install this mod and once I got my head around the admin side of things - brilliant job!
One issue however; we use a wiki mod called VaultWiki. The 'Wiki' forums will not appear in the tab I put them in

Any thought? Am happy to give you access etc to play...

Glad you like it.

I use VaultWiki as well and haven't had any issues in the normal forum display showing up. Which version are you currently using and is it Lite or Pro? If you want to send me an Admin account to access the details via PM, then I'll take a look and see if there's anything unusual.

Matt
