What Does This Hack Do?

This hack gives you an easy way to add custom tabs, links and submenu links to the end of the NavBar. This hack has been stable since I wrote it in November 2009 and does exactly what it says on the tin. The first release of the commercial version was actually based on this version with the addition of the impex feature (which has been removed again before being released here as a Lite version).

This hack will not allow you any control over the already existing default tabs, links and submenu links added by vBulletin (Classic or Publishing Suite) nor any other third-party add-on that adds it's own tabs, links and submenu links.

Tab and Link Manager Lite offers you the following functionality:
  • Installation type: Co-existence Mode - where the default NavBar tabs/links/submenu links run side-by-side with T&LM engine.
  • Add/Edit/Delete a tab.
  • Add/Edit/Delete a link.
  • Add/Edit/Delete a submenu link.
  • Tabs, links and submenu links can be individually controlled by usergroup permissions.
  • Tabs, links or submenu links will not be viewable to users not in an authorised usergroup.
  • You can change the display order for individual tabs, links and submenu links.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question:
It doesn't work! Help!!!
Answer:
That does not help others help you. Please explain exactly what the issue is, give as much information as possible and that may aid others in helping you.
Question:
I have vBulletin 4.2.0 (or above) installed, will the new Navigation Manager included in vBulletin work with Tab and Link Manager Lite?
Answer:[INDENT]The short answer is no it will not, as the Navigation Manager replicates the functions in Tab and Link Manager Lite in its entirety and you may as well use the Navigation Manager instead of this hack.

Navigation Manger is not included with vBulletin 4.1.12 (and lower), so you are fine using this hack.

Question:
"My tabs do not highlight".... "my links or submenu links do not show up".... "when I click on a link or submenu link my tab does not stay highlighted, but highlights another tab" Help!!!!
Answer:
Information as to why any of the above are probably happening is laid out in the following post here.
Question:
I don't like the copyright branding at the bottom of every page generated by hack, what can I do?
Answer:
The only option if you want to use this hack without copyright branding is to uninstall the hack and not using it at all.

vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack (Lite version) can be used with vBulletin versions 4.0.0 - 4.1.12.

For vBulletin versions 4.2.0 and above, you should use vBulletin's integrated Navigation Manager instead of this version.

This product will NOT work with 3.8.x and earlier as the new NavBar was not introduced until 4.0.0.



Hack Support

IMPORTANT: This hack is no longer supported.



Branding

There is a small unobtrusive block of copyright branding text at the bottom of each page generated by this hack, which is there to promote my work and allow you to use this hack for free.

You are NOT allowed to remove my copyright branding from this hack.


Install/Upgrade/Uninstall Instructions

The readme_tab_and_link_manager_lite.html instructions file is included in attached .zip file. You will need to open this file in a web browser.

Thanks - installed this - with 2 links under the tab - however they (the links) don't appear to display when I hover over the tab - if I click on the tab it launches the URL I have on the tab.

Same problem here, unfortunately payed support for a free mod is a turn off for me so I will use it only for tabs. I have a vague feelind you need to pay support to use this free mode properly... ...
Maybe someone can figure it out and post it here.

With this one only tabs works, the rest of menus and submenus does not work for me.
And I am not paying 40 USD for having some simple menus in forum.
There are mods 10 times more complicated and for free ... sorry wolfs.
I am using this one only for tabs, but this should be in vb included ...

Thanks, I see the link works, I managed to get that with another mod. What I'd like though is it to have it's own submenu that highlights the right link when on the page it links to.

This is great.
One thing: I have lot's of usergroups, and I had to select all to allow tab for them !

The pictures show how to create separate tabs, links and submenus.

My question: Is there a place where you can associate tabs with specific links and submenus, as there is no photo showing that?

Simple, if i create TAB 1, and want to display only LINK 2 and SUBMENU 3, not others?

Sub-menu links are associated (linked) with one Link, and Links are associated (linked) with one Tab, not the other way around, so you can not create one Link and associate it with more than one Tab at the same time, same goes for Sub-menu links, they can only be associated than one Link at a time.

There is nothing wrong with this hack at all, it is how you are utilising it on your site.... there is nothing to fix, this hack has worked bug-free for more than a year (no actual bug or error messages have ever been posted here, and that is since I released it here in July 2010).
