  • Plone 3.x

Rich (Ajax based) mode works for

  • Firefox 2+

  • IE 7+


  • In case you are using browser which is not compatible with the given product (see list above for compatible browsers), you can easily switch to ‘Plain Mode’ and use basic HTML forms without any javascript functionality. That plain mode should work for any browser ;-)

  • If you were using qPloneTabs product before and now you want to install this new package then before installing quintagroup.plonetabs uninstall qPloneTabs product from quickinstaller tool, then remove it from Products folder and only after that install quintagroup.plonetabs package.
