The plugin already comes with 2 pre-built template layouts and using MVC overrides you can create your own by simply copying one of the pre-built and modifying the HTML and/or CSS.
You can use the plugin's tags in any component, module or plugin that supports 'content plugin' parsing. Aside the default Joomla! article system, you can use for example the plugin in the popular K2 content extension, in Virtuemart, inside the 'Custom HTML' module etc.
=== SCREENSHOTS ===
See screenshots of the 2 pre-built template layouts here in the plugin's description page: http://www.joomlaworks.net/extensions/free-premium/tabs-sliders-for-articles-plugin
=== COMPATIBILITY ===
The plugin has been tested on all modern browsers, including IE7 or higher. It should degrade gracefully in IE6.
It's compatible with Joomla! version 1.5 to 2.5.
Joomla!'s Mootools is required as it's used by the plugin's extremely lightweight sliders script.
=== PERFORMANCE ===
The plugin adds only a few KBs overall to your site.
It also uses the Joomla! API to attach 1 JS and 1 CSS file to the document . This means the plugin will have no problem being used in combination with other "performance" plugins which compress JS and/or CSS files on your site.
But if you have a fully packed website with over 20/30 components the chances are it won't work.
The tab is completely dead and doesnt show anything. The slider shows (the image STAR) but doesn't open and naturaly then the text doesn't show.
I did reported this to the author,he replied with the suggestion to put the mosShowHead() just before the closing head tag, just in case, but that didnt help.
So i can only say that if you have a lot installed/used on your site then forget about using it. It will conflict with other included scripts.
Most of the times, the problem is actually caused by the template. Most template providers prefer nowadays to flood their creations with js scripts that display some nice effects. But these effects can often interfere with other js scripts, like the ones used in this specific plugin.
So yes, moving the mosShowHead code lower than every js include in the template, usually does the job. But not always as it seems in your case, when as you say you have 20-30 extensions (!) loaded. I guess that maximizes possibilities of js conflict! ;)
When I am working a plugin, i do it first with FireFox!!!
Please provide a link to see your problem!
Are you sure that is not a problem of your template?
With the default template you have the same problem?
Thanx for using it! ;-)
Hope you'll solve this problem as this is something I really want with my site (using 1.0 at the moment)
Great work on the slides by the way, top notch !
line between each group of content.
Its as if it is just not recognizing those commands.
The mambot is on and everything. I spent 45 min double checking everything which isnt much to check on. All you need is the Mambot on and to use the tags in the right spots.
Could it be my Editor? I am using the XHTML Suite
There is no tech support at all that i have found. I looked for a forums but their site is terrible and has no avenues to get help that i have found. I know its free but its easy to just put up a forum so at least other people can help out.
Maybe ill write better review if i get it working
Be sue to use the example content code the author includes which you see after you have installed the bot. It made the entire concept perfectly clear.
I work primarily in Firefox and have not noticed any issues as a previous reviewer did. So there may be a bug or two but I'm guessing most people won't have any problem at all.
I love it when I have a functionality need and somebody already has posted an extension that does just what I need. This one definitely fits the bill. (5 stars!)
The entire tab-table is much tinner then in IE. But not always, it does that not on all tabs. Page 2 in the Welcometab for example is normal like it should be...When i switch to page 1 the width is 50%. I also have this with articles.
And i heard from a friend that when you switch from an tabbed article to the frontpage with tabbed content you need to press a tablink first before it shows the content.
Hope you'll fix this soon because i realy, realy like the system...
For me the plugin conflicts with CB 1.0 destroying the tabs in the user profile using the WebFX Skin for the user profile.
I would really love to see that great plugin mature!
Until then I would wait with install;)
Keep up the great work!!
JS scripts conflict all the time. To create something "universal" is most of the times nearly impossible. The bottom line is, does it work? Does it create tabs and slides easily? And the answer is yes.
