XF 1.1 How do I create Custom Sub-Navigation Tabs

#1
Hey I really need help with something. I got an addon that displays the staff members on a custom page on the website. It is normally set as a navigation tab, yet I would like to make it a Sub-Navigation tab under the Forums tab. I don't know how to do this, but I know it is possible. This example is with the exact addon and tab I am trying to do it with:

You can use this addon to change tab assignments of existing pages using link-forums:

http://xenforo.com/community/resources/nodes-as-tabs.9/

First enable tab selection for link-forums:

Admin CP -> Home -> Nodes As Tabs -> Enable Tab Selection For Link-forums

Then create a link-forum that points to the page in question.

Then assign that link-forum to an existing tab id (in your case it would be forums) as shown here:

http://xenforo.com/community/resources/nodes-as-tabs.9/update?update=1441

The link-forum itself would be hidden from the node list. You are just using it to manipulate tab assignments. It's a little indirect but it works. The alternative is to create a separate addon specifically for this purpose, or modify the route file for that page similar to this:

Can you please be a bit clearer? How am I supposed to assign it to a tab? Also, how do I create the link forum? Will this give me the same result as the picture? You answered none of my questions.

Yes, he answered your questions - but to get total details might take a little research referred to as reading the discussion thread attached to the add-on. Normally you will get the detailed information in there that you are asking about. There are fully 22 pages of discussion in reference to that add-on, so I'm sure that more detailed support will be found there. @Jake Bunce is the author of that resource - so I'm sure if he says it will do what you are needing it to do then it will.

Actually, my version of the addon was broken, so I reinstalled it. But, when I do everything you told me, it still doesn't show up in the sub-nav of the Forums tab
