Sweet!

You know someone is going to tell you that they need a 6th tab or 7th tab, right?! (like they did with the Dozen Pages Mod because 12 or 13 just isn't enough! LOL.)   :o   Just a suggestion, but you might want to add a HOW TO ADD ANOTHER TAB to the OP at some point in order to cut down on the question being asked over and over.

Very cool mod! 8)

The thing is, that if it goes much over five, it goes down onto another line on smaller monitors - and generally doesn't look good.

If you look through look through the mod changes it is easy to see how too add more tabs.

Not for everybody. I have already explored that option and got another tab added. Just like the OP said, It broke down to another line.

Only problem button texts are 'CAPITAL' I want it like that  'Capital' how can I do it?

I uploaded a new version that fixes the allcaps and I changed the buttons so they are only active on hover.

Which looks terrible.

I dare say there will be more options in the nearby future, but I think five is enough IMHO.

And good fix - I didn't even notice that...

smp420

Really if you want more than 5 you are better off looking here http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=360100.0
I may not even add dropdowns in the future as there will be way too many options in the admin panel.

Thanks a lot...

There will NOT be too many options in the Admin CP if you add dropdowns. Sure with the current setting layout you have, it'd be confusing, but it wouldn't be too many options...

smp420

Well confusing is what I meant, there are 2 input boxes per tab with 5 tabs, if I add 4 dropdowns per tab theres another 40 input boxes for a total of 50.

Could have a dropdown-type thing so that if there are any sub-menus, it'd dropdown to show them.

I guess I didn't explain that well, but it would work...

smp420

I might just make a new page for every tab.

Himm, dropdown menu will be better than this sure...

Listen smp. People are known here to try to push mod authors to customize things for them.
Ypur mod is already looking good.
If anybody wants a custom edit , they should start learning how to do that.
Things like that are chasing good members of this forum away.

smp420

Yeah I know about that, too many good mod authors are gone now, I was already planning on doing dropdowns though I may or may not do it.
Thanks for all the comments.

@smp
I agree that the mod looks great.  I only suggested that you put a HOW TO in the OP to add other tabs since it was compared to the menu that is on SMF currently.  When I look above on SMF, I see that there are 9 tabs (maybe more for others depending on permissions) and was trying to help you avoid more questions in the future and was in no way trying to get you to do anything for my benefit.  If I shrink my screen size down, the menu doesn't form a new line above, so didn't realize your mod worked differently.  (I only need it to use 4 tabs with your mod, so wouldn't need that functionality anyway.)  Please don't think I was trying to get you to change anything.  I was having one of those pre-emptive moments where I could imagine what questions you were going to receive.  Like I said, it is a sweet mod and I like it much.

Liam.

I can do it myself, so I'm not moaning to try and get it customized for myself - as Afro truely said, many people do.

However, adding dropdowns is a pretty basic and widely-used feature so I think it should be in there somewhere along the timeline.




C4G-TK, maybe a link to the Tip/Trick would be better. I think that this site uses a slightly different method, so it wouldn't drop down onto another line, but when I tried it, it did...

smp420

The link to the tip trick is already posted here twice. I don't know about adding more tabs making a new line but as this mod only has 5 tabs this isn't the place to discuss that anyways.

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.
