I tried installing tabs.
Have used tabs before on the site but not with history. Tried enabling history as per example.
Nothing happened when clicked links except hash in url changed. When refreshed page correct pane appeared. Could control panes with api.
Removed history from tabs config and tabs worked but hashes didn't change.
replaced separate jQuery (1.4.4) and jQuery tools calls with full jQuery Tools load from cdn
tabs and history work.
I have verified this same issue with the even with the patch (stefl@748f053) in place
Try this commit. Tested with jquery 1.6.2 and it fixes history. Interested to see if it works for 1.4.4 also.
Closing - assuming this is now working; please reopen if this is still an issue.
Yes this does seem to fix the issue in my application - using jquery 1.6.3
It may also fix #200.
