NOW 100% IE7, IE8 & IE9 friendly! Flyout Tabs © 2011 by GraphicAholic is a GPL Joomla! module. You can use Flyout Tabs to display a series of tabbed images on the left hand side of your browser that will fly open when you hover your mouse over them. This module will display up to FIFTEEN (15) tabs in a very pleasing 'eye-candy' way and it's potential is endless only to your imagination. Flyout Tabs uses the jQuery Library script that must be loaded through the module settings or from another jQuery application you currently have installed (Joomla 1.5 only). With the release of v1.0.9, I coded into the core Flyout Tabs code an 'auto-detect / auto-load' jQuery Library command (Joomla 2.5 only). Because Joomla 3.x pre-loads the jQuery Library, there is no need to worry about this! This module has been tested and tested and tested again and found to be bug free, feature rich and crazy fun to use! Download it and take it out for a test-drive. I'm sure you'll find a need for it within your Joomla website.
The site where I have installed it has menu at the left side (as most sites actually) and, if you browse through tablet or smartphone tabs often do cover part of the menu making hard to select any manu voice.
With the possibility to move tabs on the right side of the screen the problem would be fixed.
5 Stars anyway!
Brilliant extension. I went to check how much I spend on this and then realised it is not commercial. Couldn't believe my eyes. I tested many extensions and some are paid for various purposes. And when I find some gem like this and realise it is not commercial it is mind blowing!
THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH GUYS.
mivanova, Thank you for your very kind comments and rating. By all means, please continue to contact us if we can be of any assistance moving forward.
i had the same problem on both sites.
the problem is that i saw the tabs complited not hide and of that i understand no script working. i dont know why. i try both on or off jquery, i try disable one by one my other modules. i didnt find something. the tabs is their without hide and back with mouse over.
I did need to tweak a couple of things though as I wanted the idle background and border to be transparent. If you could include this option in the plugin it would be great.
I edited the xml and php files to make the default tabColor & tabBorder to be empty and its perfect.
Thanks for a great extension.
Dear fnzb, actually you did not need to tweak the XML file to do this. All you need to do is type the word transparent in the color box (replacing the HEX color) and that would have given you the effect you wanted. Thanks for your great review & rating!
Added a new module to my site and it worked straight away.
Smooth movement on the animation.
Nice job developer
siddallj, thanks for your kind review and comments regarding Flyout Tabs... they are most welcomed!
I use this to publish basic social icon and contact links, elegantly and discretely.
3 minutes to publish in 'debug', play with 'Flyout Tabs Offset' and 'Left margin on mouseover' before tweaking this to perfection.
Thanks for a great little module.
1) On the frontpage the navigation at the bottom of the page is stretched out beyond the boundaries of the template. It only happens when jquery tools are enabled in the module.
2) On every pageload the tabs appear and then retract; this is quite annoying and I don't know how to resolve this.
Apparently the support website is not available, so I can not get any help. It is the reason it gets 4 stars. For the rest it is an excellent module.
I use a module for loading different css according to menu items, and i guess this causes the conflict. Sometimes works, sometimes not. Still working on it..
marsgow, thanks for your review of Flyout Tabs and yes, the tabs can cover part of your website when viewed from low-res monitors. A work-around is to design your tabs in a column format and set the module's option to only show the least amount of each tab when not in mouseover mode. This is what I had to do for a client faced with the same issue.
Once again Ed, great job - and please keep up the excellent hobby :-) Cheers.

I hope next version will have right position also.
Coldyfire, thank you for taking the time in submitting a review for Flyout Tabs. Your kind comments pushes me to continue to code and advance this module. Getting Flyout Tabs on the right side of your monitor is a 'work in progress'!
