Before installing any of my addons, please make sure any of my addons already installed are up-to-date.

jl_magic_tabs - v7.2.8

If you have problems after updating, please see Problems immediately after updating. This version of Magic Tabs is fully compatible with c5.7+ and c5v8+.

7.2.8 - Fix 'Preserve Grid Wrapper' state on entering edit dialog. Show message when quick add option is unavailable due to filesystem permissions.

7.2.7 - Fix issue with multiple nested levels of ajax loaded tabs.

7.2.6 - Extend implementation to facilitate ajax loading of tab sets within tabs sets. This update includes changes to MT JavaScript so you will need to clear caches after updating.

7.2.5 - Support ajax loading tab sets. Note: Magic Tabs does not include an ajax loader, it is designed to work with other ajax loaders such as Universal Content Puller.

7.2.4 - Kalmoya AJAX Form integration now built in.

7.2.3 - Index classes added to tab body wrappers for convenience of styling tab bodies.

7.2.2 - New 'No Tabs' template. Useful for building slide shows.

7.2.1 - Update to help and support links.

7.2.0 - Split forms into tabs. Split Page Lists into tabs. Use themes from Buttons Factory Pro for tabs. Quick Add. Automated tab headings. Icons for tabs. Enhancements to Jump button. Separate transitions for accordions. No inline JavaScript. Tabs designed with jQuery/ui deprecated.

7.1.6 - Fix backward compatibility issue for c5.7 search indexing.

7.1.5 - Fix script error in slice selector passed to jQuery

7.1.4 - Fix edit config array deprecated in php7.2.1

7.1.3 - Update for c5 v8.4.0rc1 compatibility and latest deprecated code guide  (as far as is possible while maintaining backward compatibility)

7.1.2 - Enhancements to facilitate FOUC prevention in v8.

7.1.1 - Fix issue where nested 2 tabs could break the rendering of nested 1 tabs.

7.1 - IMPORTANT - Global Settings have moved to application/config/magic_tabs.php (previously application/config/app.php). If you are upgrading from a site where you have adjusted global configuration settings, you will need to implement these in the new location.

The block edit dialog now provides a direct interface to global settings, so editing config files may not be necessary at all!

On recent concrete5.7.5+ versions, an update to the core grid model and the way blocks are wrapped on full width page types can interfere with the way Magic Tabs are rendered, particularly for vertical templates and nested accordions. Magic Tabs v7.1 adds global settings that can be adjusted to alter the way the grid box model is transformed when Magic Tabs are rendered. See Global Settings in Magic Tabs v7.1+.

7.0.1 - Fix issue with global tab settings when set other than default from within a tab template on c5.7.4+ core.

7.0 - Official release version number for 5.7. Incorporates a fix for asset loading for some templates when not logged in.

6.2.4 - Fixes semi-colon typo and duplicate css lines in default view and some others.

Ported from concrete5.6 version of Magic tabs.
