Looking good. If less than 5 tabs are used, do they justify vertically or are they aligned top?

Thanks :)

They are aligned top, so it keeps the same image dimensions. You will just have less tabs on display.

I see. I noticed it says "no CSS knowledge required". How do you change the color of the tab/button? Manually edit the style sheet?

There's two images - tab.png and tab_current.png

The source file is included for both.

To change the right hand side button colour, it's just one line of CSS.

Oh, I see.


Just my 2 cents, but as it seems that you are specifically targeting people with no CSS knowledge, it may be a good idea to simply include the css line in the settings page. Granted, they would still have to use a site like http://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_colorpicker.asp to enter it into the settings page, but that would be one less step.


Also, since it would not take much time to make, you may want to include 10 or so pre-made color buttons (blue, green, etc).



Even if you do not include my suggestions, I still think you have a quality product. Great work.

I had considered adding themes to it, so I'll do that now.

Thanks for the feedback :)

Sweet work! Out of curiosity, what themes did you go with? I can only see "red" in the image.

Feel free to email me the comission fee ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-)


or... if you would prefer, I would love you long time if you have any potential ideas for http://forum.x-cart.com/showthread.php?t=64865.
