Nice. Should have option for default tab deletion and addition too. This way it would help in adjusting the current tabs too
Best add-on for the job! I have one that is $20 and this one is better and simple! Good job <3 and of course I love it`s free!
SIMPLY THE BEST custom tabs addon. When I've seen it's FREE I COULD NOT BELIEVE! Thank you so much @Siropu!
Love your Chat application and thanks for this free one. The quality of your work makes me perk when seeing that you're the author of the add-on!
SIMPLY THE BEST custom tabs addon. When I've seen it's FREE I COULD NOT BELIEVE! Thank you so much @Siropu!
Just what I was looking for. I had been trying to do this as node tabs however it wasn't ideal, but having the ability to just add whatever link you need is perfect, also the ability to colour code links is a nice little bonus.
Excellent add-on.

Any forum needs social sharing to be more prominent if it's going to serve in the Twitter and Facebook age, but it took me a while to find one that did what I wanted with the options I wanted. This one is it.
Absolutely easy to use and very helpful. Saved me a lot of time. Thanks for the free add on! This makes the task of adding to the navbar very easy.
WOW talk about easy-to-use, this add-on is most certainly that!

Of all the modifications (for vB) or add-ons (for XF) that I've ever used to add a tab/link into the Navigation Bar, this one was the most intuitive I've ever come across. Kudos for such a great working and easy-to-use resource!
Works great! A suggestion might be to delete/edit the current menu items as well. For now; I will use the documentation to edit the menu items. :)
