XF 1.1 Best option for adding navbar tabs?

    I wondered what people's opinion was on the best way to add extra tabs.

    Jake's add-on looks great but the fact that it can add up to 4 extra queries per page seems like a lot. The other option of modifying the template and hard-coding things in is an option but not quite as nice.

    I assume at some stage in the future (1.2?) the lack of any navbar management will be addressed but until then I wondered what people were doing and why?

    1-3 extra queries per page.

    You can enable debug mode to see load stats on each page. That will allow you to see the difference. I just did this on my forum and found a very small difference in load time and memory:

    		w/o addon	w/ addon
    load time:	0.0750s		0.0800s
    memory:		8.2MB		8.5MB
    It's not enough to worry about.

    For me, it was best to just create an addon that added the tabs and dropdowns as I wanted them for xenfans, I've shared this addon with the rest here;


    With the plugin installed
    Timing: 0.0703 seconds Memory: 3.747 MB DB Queries: 8
    Without the plugin installed
    Timing: 0.0693 seconds Memory: 3.729 MB DB Queries: 8
    ^ Both on the same forum index page.
