How to Use MyTabs

Check out the Tutorial here


Works in xoops 2.3.0, xoops 2.0.16, ????? 1.0 and Xcl

Does not work in xoops 2.2.x due to diferent configuration of database, sorry.

If you have problems using xoops 2.3 alpha then add a folder named 'smarty_cache' with write permissions in

Tested with php5 and php4.


Blocksadmin does not work correctly under iCms, please use your system blocksadmin.

Blocksadmin does not work correctly under xcl. (I don´t know if XOOPS Cube provides a cloning block function).

Be carefull when selecting time based tabs/blocks. Displayed hour is not always correct. Have that in mind when selecting time.


You can´t use more than one block with scrolling tabs (delay>0) per page.
