TabbedProducts-LITE

Description
What is TabbedProducts-LITE?
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

TabbedProducts-LITE is a contrib that allows you to change the look of your product info screen to use a tabbed display using DHTML for a professional look. It is named LITE, but it is indeed quite powerful and customizable.

It's called LITE because this version needs no database changes, nor are there lots of extra files to deal with. The bulk of the functionality is in one template file. It is simple to install, use, and customize.

How does it work?
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Tabs are created dynamically based on tags entered right in the main product description in the admin area. There are no file modifications, only a new products display template with the new code to parse the tags and create the tabs. You can have as many tabs as you want. If you don't want tabs for a certain product, then simply don't add them! The code is smart enough to figure out if you want tabs based on the existence of the tag code. More information in the readme.

TabbedProducts-LITE   -   Version: v3.8
+Added Reviews tab :) Includes new custom reviews template.
+Optimized the config file a bit.
+Fixed a potential bug that the sub_ tags added. Unfortunately it requires minor changes to your tpl_product_info_display.php file if you have a custom one.
+Since both the Admin Edition & Non-Admin Editions are basically the same, only the top part of includes/modules/tabbed_products_lite.php changes for the Non-Admin version. It is now included in a folder inside the modules folder. Switch it with the one in the folder up to the root modules/ folder if you don't want to use the admin area to make config changes.
+Fixed the SQL to properly create all the new configuration settings in the Admin area
+Updated the readme again to make it a tabbed view for fun.

TabbedProducts-LITE   -   Version: v3.7-all_editions
+ Added ability to use sub_ tags to group any combination of core tab modules on to the same tab. So you could have one tab with add to cart on it and another tab with Cross Sell and Additional Images without making them separate tabs.
+ Updated both Database and non-Database versions and included them in the same package. Both versions have the same features.
+ Fancied up the Readme a lot more. Added more info and examples.

TabbedProducts-LITE   -   Version: v3.5-final
Massive restructuring. All tab code is separated from the rest of the template file. This makes it much easier to merge the tabs into existing custom product templates and make new custom changes without a lot of confusing code surrounding the core code.
Tab code is own template file now: /includes/templates/your_template/templates/tpl_tabbed_products_lite.php
Tab config is own module file now: /includes/modules/tabbed_products_lite.php
Original tpl_product_display_info.php now is much smaller, close to the default core size with minor modifications.
Added language files. Now you can have different languages for your tabs.
Ported the Product Types: Product, Product Music, and Product Free Shipping to a tabbed version and included the files. Now you can use the same tabs module and template with any of the included Product Types
Added a tab for Media Manager/Collection for the music tab only. Code checks to ensure that only the music product type offers that as a tab
Completely cleaned up the code and properly tabbed it all now that it is much easier to discern.
Created easy to follow instructions for merging tab code into existing custom templates.
Revamped the Add your Own Tab instructions.

TabbedProducts-LITE   -   Version: 2.7c
- Fixed a table from closing at the wrong point in both versions of the template file (CrossSell and non-CrossSell)

This version has gone the longest without any complaints so I think its safe to make this the last release for a while.
Future releases will be done with rounded css corners and perhaps some admin configuration.

TabbedProducts-LITE   -   Version: v2.7
06/06/2006 - v2.7(release) - qhome
- Fixed a bug that if you had main image inside tab set to true in the tpl file, but weren't using tabs at all, it would hide the main image.
- Completely changed the main image inside tab as a hardcode tag now instead of a global variable to make it more customizable.
- Added hardcode tags for "Add to Cart" & "Attribute Options" to be inside the main tab. Or if you aren't using custom tabs for your product decription, but want to include 'add to cart' as a tab with the other hard code modules as a tab, it will create a new Add-to-cart tab for you.
- Added ability to use the hardcode tags without having to use at least one custom tab first.
