Kubrick tabs

Kubrick tabs is an adaptation of the default WordPress theme (based on the famous Kubrick by Michael Heilemann) to use the dymanic tabs plugin.

I’ve tested it with Safari, Firefox, and Windows Internet Explorer.

In order for this theme to appear any differently from the original Kubrick, you need to have the dymanic tabs plugin installed and activated, and your tabs set up. Click here to find out how.

Kubrick tabs is meant as an example to show what can be done with the dtabs plugin. Only minor alterations to style.css and header.php have been made to the default Wordpress theme (Kubrick), and the addition of style_ie_fixes.css, images/tab_left.jpg, images/tab_unselected_left.jpg, images/tab_central, images/tab_unselected_central, images/tab_right, images/tab_unselected_right, and images/tabbar.jpg. Therefore the “working” of the theme should not be affected, but if you experience any problems unique to Kubrick tabs, then please reply to this post for support. Kubrick is developed by the Wordpress team, so any support needed with Kubrick should be pointed towards the Wordpress forums.

    Hello,

    I have followed your directions (including setting up dynamic tabs) but the IE stylesheet is not working. The theme alignment and tabs (vertical instead of horizontal) are broken when viewing in Internet Explorer 6. I have scoured Google and found no solutions (nor anyone else with this problem).

    I installed the theme on a fresh 2.5.1 WordPress install with only the following other plugins present:

    -backupwordpress
    -dTabs (obviously)
    -List Subpages
    -TinyMCE Advanced

    Any ideas?

    Thanks much.

    The tabs for some reason start out OK and then always ‘stack up’. At the beginning they are all in a row right on top of the blue background as they should be. Then when I do a few things the tabs ‘stack up’ as if there isn’t enough room for them. I have 7 tabs and the stack either 1 on top 6 on the bottom or 2 on top, 1 second row, 2 third row, 2 fourth row.

    At the beginning I made my own theme based on yours, but have since reverted back to your original code and still have the problem.

    It would help me a lot if you have a chance to take a look. or let me know if you want me to send you screen shots.

  13. turbo says:

    By the way, the stacking only happens on firefox. I am on v 3.0.1. Explorer, opera and safari seem OK.

  14. Josh Huber says:

    hi

    great plugin.
    it works fine – except my subcategory-links are listed beside each other in a row and not vertically.
    how do I repair that?
    please help
    thanks
    josh

  15. Deb says:

    I, too, am having trouble with the tabs stacking sounds exactly like the post above who describes it. I’ve spent hours on the css with no luck. Has anyone found a fix for this?

  16. mel says:

    The tabs stack one above the other in IE6. This would be an amazing plugin if was a little more compatible with older browsers that people still use!

  17. RVN says:

    I have Erik’s same problem.. any solution?

  18. Petra says:

    would be perfect if links could be given parent/child relationships… posts on a page for example.

  19. Dave says:

    I don’t quite understand what you mean Petra, could you explain further? thanks

  20. Riccardo says:

    Hello,

    I have derived a child theme from Kubrick Tabs. It works perfectly with Firefox and Safari, but with Internet Explorer 7 and the tabs are stack one above the other.

    Could you please suggest a solution?

    Thanks.

    PS: thanks a lot for releasing Kubrick Tabs!

    Hi, i hope you can help

    I am using Kubrick-tabs theme for a website at http://174.132.167.130/~spirit24/wordpress/

    mostly it is working fine although we are not able to control the image alignment in the blog posts, for some reason they are defaulting to the ‘left’ instead of where we are setting the alignment.

    Is there anything i can do about this?

    Thanks for giving great functionalities for enthusiastic but kind of very bad at technical issue sort of people such like me. I actually have gone through the following procedure but outcome is not what I expected, so can you help me?

    1) installed successfully, and attempted to pre-enable my original theme for dTabs by applied to header.php where I want all the categories listed sideways but it shows only 1 of 3 categories I have registered through wordpress admin panel, so I supposed I haven’t pre-enabled enough with my original theme.

    2) then installed Kubrick-tabs for the sake of eliminating my problem based on assumption that this is pre-enabled one but outcome is the same as what I saw on the first attempt

    I also don’t understand a kind of criteria that dTabs lists items because nothing was specified at all , despite that it outputs one item on the tab menu… so what else do I need to enable this function in terms of how to register or define items I want to list?? Thank you in advance.

  25. Dave says:

    Have you got posts in all the categories you were expecting to see?

  26. Youjie says:

    If the posts mean articles assigned under the certain category, yes I do have them under each category for total 3 including a category called “Uncategorized” which assigns Hello World by default. Other than that, I assigned 2 articles under the category named “computer science” as well as there is 1 article assigned under “Cantonese”. However, I saw only 1 category “Computer science” out of 3 on navigation bar that was supposed to line up all the category items dynamically. In doing so, I have nipped syntax between “<LI>〜</LI>” tags in header.php. If you don’t feel bothered to check how it is like, go to website >> http://yaugai.kuronowish.com/kafei/ but this is subject to be removed within days due to its testing purpose
