Question #326

I just upgraded from Tab Panel Magic 2 (TPM2) to Tab Panel Magic 3 (TPM3) and have a lot of bookmarked links with the TPM2 URL parameters. Can TPM3 recognize the older TPM2 URL parameters?

The Answer

Prepared Mar. 2014 by Gerry Jacobsen, PVII

The Tab Panel Magic 3 (TPM3) system will only recognize TPM3 URL parameters. You can get TPM3 to recognize older TPM2 URL parameters by applying this quick code tweak:

1. Open the p7TP3scripts.js file and locate this code block in the P7_TP3url(dv) function, around line 1421:

h=h.replace('?','');
s=h.split(/[=&]/g);

2. Make a new line in between the above lines and Copy & Paste this into the new line:

h=h.replace('tpm','tp3');

so that it now looks like this:

h=h.replace('?','');
h=h.replace('tpm','tp3');
s=h.split(/[=&]/g);

3. Next, locate this code block around line 1446:

if(h){
  x=h.substring(1,h.length);

4. Make a new line in between the above lines and Copy & Paste this into the new line:

  h=h.replace('tpm','tp3');

so that it now looks like this:

if(h){
  h=h.replace('tpm','tp3');
  x=h.substring(1,h.length);

5. Save and close the scripts file.

That's it! The TPM3 system will now recognize, convert and process older TPM2 URL parameters.
