Does anyone know how to make a tab image link to another site instead of opening another GP site page? For instance, I want to add a Donate tab button that will open the PayPal donation site when clicked on.

Thanks in advance.

Hiya AngelchildeCoX

I posted how to do add a custom tab bar in this thread. It'll take a little work and works best on a paid subscription site, but I think you'll be happy with how it works. All you need to do is add the URL for each tab button in the code, including paypal. And of course the selected, hover and unselected image for each tab. If you don't have a hover image, just pick the selected one.

If you need any help with it, feel free to post it here or message me.

I need the tab with the external link to open in a new window, any suggestions?

Would clicking on the middle mouse button to open a new tab work well enough? I'd have to add a tiny bit of code otherwise... but I'll work on it either way

Edit: I posted the updated code in the main thread... see it here

Tried the new code and it doesn't seem to work in Firefox, any suggestions?

That's odd, I just check it again and it seems to work fine. And I spend 99% of my time using Firefox.

Post it up on your site and I'll take a look at it to see if I can troubleshoot the problem.

I'm not sure if it's just a Firefox thing. As soon as I put in those new variables, all of the tabs default to the active image, and whatever image is active doesn't even display. I can't change it over because the site is live, unfortunately. You could certainly check it as it is now, maybe there is something off with the code I'm using?

I looks like it's working to me.
