CG4 is actually right. Adding a "how to' will save you a lot of work unless you are ready to answer a lot of questions.
So i would add HOW TO if i were you.
A lot of inexperienced users troop in here daily and some of them cant locate a source or template file.
So make things easier for everyone by adding a HOW TO if you can.

Which is why the tutorial is linked to - which explains everything in detail...

As Liam said the how to was already linked in this topic.

We are talking about linking the "how to " in the first post.
I believe you dont expect people to continue reading all posts until they find the link.

Very useful mod :)

Thanks for the translations I added them and uploaded version 1.2, the only change in version 1.2 is the Russian translation. If anyone else has any translations please post them.

That sums it all up. This is only actually for Curve and Curve Variations, and probably won't work with any other themes...

If your looking for simple use of this feature (one-level links) then this mod is great. If however your site requires a dropdown (2-3 level) or additional links, then refer to my tutorial in Tips/Tricks board (link below). It's an exact step by step of how to accomplish this manually. I'm always available to offer help with this tip.

@smp420: great job implementing this into a mod. I suggest looking at my tutorials CSS edits to make it so the menu links don't wrap onto another line if the users browser resolution is smaller than suggested. Otherwise nicely done.

Here's the link to the tutorial for those needing the dropdown effect and/or additional links (this is a manual edit, not a mod)

What exactly did you add to the mod? You'd have to add and match the code in index.template.php and ManageSettings.php...

If you want 10 tabs to show find this line in index.template.php
   for ($i=1; $i<6; $i++)

Change to
   for ($i=1; $i<11; $i++)

Maybe add the ability to create unlimited number ($n) of buttons in a future version? :)

Well as the mod isn't meant to have unlimited tabs I highly doubt that will happen.

I am gettin error in admin.php file during installation on RC2.0. Can you make it compatible with 2.0RC ?

// Mod Authors for a "ADD AFTER" on this line. Ensure you end your change with a comma. For example:
// 'shout' => array($txt['shout']),
// Note the comma!! The setting with automatically appear with the first mod to be added.


'custom_menu' => array($txt['custom_menu_title']),

If your talking about anything other than RC3 I will not make the mod compatible with an older version of SMF please update there has been many security and bug fixes in RC3.
