Hello,

I'm using Joomla 2.5.7 with the Seblod CCK and JComments plugin.

Problem is: tabs just don't appear on frontend. Maybe I'm doing smth wrong or there is a problem whith combination of these plugins. But in my opinion it's very unlikely.

Here how i configure the OT mini Tabs plugin:

1) Install and publish it in some position (the position is free from any other modules)
2) Select the content type of the module
3) Select the list of categories, configure the "content options" tab
4) Press the Save button

after this nothing happens. The position becomes a 0 height and OT mini Tabs dont appear.

What do I do wrong?

I tried to find some instructions how to use it, but i couldn't.

By the way the main task for me is to make the "category blog" like in basic Joomla but where i can choose the viewing of articles by tabs. Where every tab is a some kind of filter for articles by the categories.
Of course i need to publish it in the main content postion instead of the standard "category blog" materials of Joomla.

Can I do this using your extension and what do I do wrong in configs, what position i need to use for this and what menu type it has to be (now i have "category blog" menu type)?

Thank you for your reply.

First problem was solved. It was very stupid from side i didn't notice that module was not assigned for all pages. So when I set it to "show on all pages" everything became good. Sorry for disturbing you about that.

But as I usnderstand it doesn't show the articles from subcotegories, only from selected category.
I have a category "A" and it has subcategories "A1", "A2", "A3". I need to make a tab "A" which has to show all articles from subcategories "A1..3", and the same for category "B" and so on. Is it possible?

And the last one. Can I post this module in Content position instead of the main Joomla article section?

I've found the solution of the second question about posting your module in content position. There is a standard Joomla module "Content - Load Modules", it must be published and in position options of required module you have to type unique name of virtual position. After that in article text area you have to write such code: {loadposition name_of_virtual_position} where the module has to be inserted.

Ok. But I still don't know can your extension display articles from subcategories like I asked before.
