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)..

should be able to modify the CSS to do that. I've never done any RTL stuff tho, so you'd have to ask someone that has done it.

Ya, I've got a working version (minus the collapse functionality).. just have had absolutely zero free time to put a release together. Its a new version, so you'd have to install it to 4.0 from scratch.

Has anyone been able to deal with the changes in 3.8.5 that have broken some things?

They said to find this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and replace it with this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and this bit of code?

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

for starters....

And none of that is in the forumhome template and I do not know where to put it.

I hope someone else has encountered this and I am not the only lone ranger who has not upgraded to 4.0
update:
found the code in forumhome tabbed. still working through it.

Is it working properly for you now? I might have to take a look into 3.8.5 and see if there are any more updates that need to be made.

Hey Bobster,

Just a quick question, will this modification continue to be supported for the time being and do you know when it's likely that there will be an update to the current versions of the TFH for 3.8.x?

Thanks.

Edit: Just saw your reply on the other thread, can't wait.

Hello,

I've just installed this mod and it's working perfectly but there's a small problem.

I am currently using Cyb - Sub Forum Manager, but it doesn't seems to be working with this modifications I made.

Any idea how to make it work with this mod??

Hi,

I think this mod might be just what I am looking for.

I have a question though, say I split my forum into 4 tabs, when I hit new posts, are all 4 tabs included in the results or only the tab you are viewing?

Ideally, I would like it to only show the new posts from the tab you are viewing, not sure if this is possible.

Thanks for any advice and assistance.

Question:

How do you figure out the category IDs if you have vBSEO installed? All of my category IDs are covered up by vBSEO rewrites.

Ideas?
