Is it possible to open profile with other tab open?

    I would have thought it could be possible to open the profile with another tab open than the first one.
    Example: If I open my profile here, its:
    i get the first tab selected by default.

    Now to my understanding, all tabs have urls in them, with a jumpmark.
    the infotab on my profile has:

    So I thought by typing in that url, it would load my profile page with the information tab open.
    (that was a mistake, even with that url, the page loads with the first tab open.)
    so here is my question:
    Is there a way to load the profile page to have another tab open by default than the first one?

    thanx for any reply.

    YES!!! thank you!
    Actually I wanted to make another tab, that i called "MySpecialTab" default on pageload.
    So what i did, thanks to your js... in the other thread.
    1. I added the tab per template hook. (there i give the <li> an id="MySpecialTab")
    2. I added following javascript
    <script type="text/javascript">
    var qgFirstLoad = true;
    $(document).bind('XenForoActivationComplete', function() {
            $("ul.tabs.mainTabs > li#MySpecialTab > a").click();
            qgFirstLoad = false;
    Needed the first load variable, because if the content is loaded per ajax, the XenForoActivationComplete is triggered again.
    for me this works like a charm.
    I will later on make a useroption, so the user can choose if he wants first tab to be default or MySpecialTab to be default on his profile.

    Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction.
