Purpose of the mod
This mod makes the Family tab stay active after selection, and navigating family pages is done in the innermenu (like ancestors or descendants pages).
If the subject Person has no family (is not "married"), the family pages pertain to the parents.
If the subject Person has more than one family, the first family is selected.
If a new family is selected by the Group Sheet or Family Chart links for f.ex. parent's family, the new subject Person will be the Husband/Father if possible.
When family pages are browsed, the Suggest/Edit tab and PDF innermenu link pertain to the Family while the subject Person is kept for the other tabs.
What you sacrifice
Visualization of this mod
This mod makes the TNG tab collection consistent with other tab collections on Internet:
Clicking the original Family tab in TNG
and DANG! This happens:
ALL your tabs are gone - and are replaced by others!
After mod install, this is the result of clicking the Family tab:
All tabs are at their proper places and the familychart.php is opened (optionally familygroup.php).
The familygroup.php and familychart.php (and Maternal/Paternal Lines mod) pages are selected in the innermenu.
This mod was developed by Erik Hoppe.
See all my mods at my Wiki user page.
Credits go to forumuser Merv for inspiration to make this mod and to Ron and Ken for testing, help, suggestions, advice and patience. Thanks!

Order to UNINSTALL:
All mods above the one you want to Uninstall, must first be Uninstalled (if you use them).
You can Install them after. See the Install order above.
Suppose you use the Scrollbox and Fixed Family Tab mods.
Now you want to install Maternal And Paternal Lines.
As you can see in the Install Order both the used mods are below the Maternal And Paternal Lines mod and therefore you must first Uninstall the mods in the Uninstall order:
First Uninstall the Fixed Family Tab mod and then the Scrollbox mod.
Now you can install all three mods in the Install order:
First you Install Maternal And Paternal Lines, second the Scrollbox mod and finally Fixed Family Tab.
