Troubleshooting

Do i need jQuery?

Yes this module requires it.

Tabs not showing, why?

This is possible for a few reasons. If jQuery is already included on your site by the template or another extension, then make sure to disable it in XpertTabs. Sometime another extension load jquery, make sure jquery loaded only once in header and top of all script.

We recommend to use Firefox 4+/Chrome/Safari/Opera for admin management. It has some problem saving settings from Internet Explorer
