What would you do with the other categories? I like the feature though, but not sure if it is efficient.

Considering you offered to edit in the tabs, do you mind doing it for mine? It's for Citiez. (attached it)

Sorry littlenicki, I'm not planning to support 1.1.x in any of my mods (Lock Recycled Topics being an exception). If anybody feels like porting this or my other mods to 1.1.x, feel free to do so.

I think he means to be able to select more than one category to be in the same tab. So other categories would be in their own tab like they normally would.

 I would love that feature too as it would do wonders looks/organization wise.

And if you really want to go the full mile, I suggest making tabs be independent of categories all together. You would go to the tabs configuration page, create a new tab and then select what categories and forums would appear under the tab. Check this out [nofollow]. At first it might seem abit disorganized, but it really does give the user a lot more control and freedom with how the tab looks and functions.

That sounds like a nice feature. How does keeping this current package sound, with a package that provides that feature separately available?

That sounds good from a user's standpoint. But then you'll end up with more than one package that needs to be updated and so on, so you'll have to decide if it's worth it.

Excelent mod , really great but I have a small problem. Sometimes when I refresh forum, tabs don't show in right way and evertyhing got mixed up, can I know where is the problem ? If I'm gonna refresh it will be back, but sometimes goes mixed.

This mod should work just fine on 2.0.5.

Do you have a link to your forum? I can't reproduce it myself.

Sorry about the late reply. Thanks for answering sir.

I'd love any package that supported what Im after lol. I want tabs, how you have them but so I can select certain categories for one tab, and then others for another.. and so on. Its an excellent mod as is. Im just after that little extra :)

Heres a (really) basic example of what I mean..

To make things perfect, it'd be pretty cool to have multiple tabbed sections. But, that is up to you :)

Curious... I've just installed this on my test forum and look what it's done.  Same in my custom theme and the default theme...  I'm guessing it's a mod conflict but I've no idea right now which mod it might be, I have a few....  :P

same problem here  :-\

Couple of Questions for you.

1. I was thinking of separating my forums into two sections 1 for the music side of my website which is the main forum and the other side is a general forum which features everything else people can generally chat about. This would make the forums look cleaner and less clutter. Would the tabs mod work well for the way i want it,

2. Like a few other people i have a problem it installed fine through package manager to my test forum but looking at the forum index it looks off on all themes i have added a screen shot below.

Thanks
