Really useful.

Why are people whining about non-existent categories to choose from and no documentation?

It will load MODULES you select in tabs, as you can see in the module config.

I used this extension on a Joomla 2.5 site and it worked great but when installed on Joomla 3.0 doesn't appear on front end of site no matter what options have been selected.

Hope the developers can get this fixed would love to be able to use it again on my updated site, worked like a charm on 2.5 but not at all on 3.0.

I would LOVE to know how so many people can give this mod a five star rating... it doesn't work... they claim that this mod is 'highly customizable' - but they forgot to mention that no where in your configuration - can you actually pick your article's or categories... matter of fact - there is no way to tell the module WHAT kind of content to actually display - just boxes of lorem ipsum... if you think i'm just making this stuff up - take a look at the thumb nails and tell me if you see anywhere that allows you to select what you are displaying.

unless i am completely missing something - other than the fact that so many of you actually gave this mod a '5', i would stay far away from this and look towards a more rewarding use of your time.

The standard of Joomla extensions is getting better all the time making it very easy for us designers to do our job. This extension is no exception. 10 preset styles, plus the ability to customise your own style. A really easy to use and well designed extension which the developer can be truly proud of. Thanks for your work.

It's just great. Easy in every aspect and runs on any browser.
And I quote the following comment, since it is the truth:
"In general, Joomla is easy to work, and if someone can't make this extension work properly, I don't believe the user can even manage to install Joomla.".
Now I wonder where the sixth star.
thank you very much and expect more.

Apparently is a good extension, easy to use and customize. But it has a bug for a long time and not repaired. It's free but has error and do not support. Not suitable for users of chrome and safari

Great extension. I just installed the extension and got it up and running within minutes. Developer does not have documentation in website, but they have a forum where you can find and ask questions.

Considering that this extension is free, it's fair users do their homework before complaining. In general, Joomla is easy to work, and if someone can't make this extension work properly, I don't believe the user can even manage to install Joomla.

A full evaluation of the extension - Impossible, since I could not get it to work, which is to be expected, since there is no documentation for people new to Joomla and SP Tab.

Courtesy and Honesty - I sent a friendly email and 2 days later still received no reply:
"Hi Kowshar,

I am new to Joomla and still learning.

I have installed SP Tab and I see it in Modules, but there is absolutely
no documentation on what to do next, to be able to choose the different
styles as shown on the demo page.

I have read the forum for SP Tab and there is no instructions there either.

There no documentation included when one follows the "Documentation" link
here: (Cannot post a link here, but I mentioned the link that the "documentation" button links to, but there is no documentation.)

Please can you inform me as to where exactly the
documentation/instructions are?

Kind regards,

Pros & Cons of the extension and its performance - I could not get it to work, since there is no documentation/instructions.

Level of support received - None and others asking for documentation, in the SP Tab creators' forum, as long as 4 months ago, also recieved no answer.

Ease of usage and deployment - Cannot get it to work since the is no documentation/instructions for people new to Joomla and the product.

Purpose of using the extension (i.e., "I used this extension for a magazine site.") - I used the version 1.5 extension for a standard version 1.5 Joomla site.

Level of difficulty - For me, new to Joomla and the extension, it was very difficult to use without documentation/instructions.

Your experience level with Joomla and web technologies - New to Joomla and still learning.

Appreciate the developer's kind-heart sharing. It's just working so perfect with so perfect layout. I am using it to display some sub-items in article by loading module. If it can read articles in our future version, that will be awesome.
Anyway, it's already an marvelous extension.

I don't need this feature. Thanks

Great module, I made my template, and a bit of module fits into it, but this module at each position fits perfectly!

Best free joomla tabs I've tried. It look quite professional. Really smooth animations, nice predefined styles. And enough of them to suit many different needs.

However, JQUERY USERS beware! if you've linked to the jquery lib in your source file (even if you don't use any jquery scripts) SP tabs will not show up on your page. I spent half an hour trying to figure out what the problem was, then as soon as I removed my jquery link, it worked perfectly.

It will work with jQuery if you use jQuery noConflict method.

if ($defined(window.jQuery) && $type(jQuery.noConflict)=='function') {

I say thank you for this very nice Tab Module. But :-( the Module isnt seo friendly. Test it byself. Disable Javascript in your browser refresh the page and you see nothing more, only the titles, but now content. Google will have the same problem when it spider the page. Therefore only a average rating from me.
