On a tab override specific to a profile, tab not selected

We are overriding the homepage and had no problems making it work as the organization default. However, now that we have created a few homepages that are specific to a profile, the tab is not showing as selected. I found an old topic with a similar issue (https://community.skuidify.com/skuid/topics/on_tab_override_tab_not_selected), but my settings are correct. I feel like it has something to do with the fact that it is specific to a profile… but, I am too new to Skuid to know if that hunch is true.

If you are using the standard home page components and layouts - but wrapping the skuid page in a VF component,  you should see the Home Tab highlighted. 

Are you doing something different to show skuid on the home page? 

Sorry, I should have clarified. This is for the Projects tab, which is a custom object.

I actually have different home pages for different profiles and the tab is showing as selected just fine for those.

Aha… that is very different.

So you made a custom object. Probably “Project__c”

Then you create a few Skuid pages for it. Each had “Project__c” in the “Tab to Override” property.


(My object was “Client__c”)

Then your visual force override code should look like this:

You might be using the redirect method for your override, which would be slightly different.

action="{!redirect}?objectType=Client__ c&actionType=Tab">

See more about that here: http://help.skuidify.com/m/page-assignments-and-overrides/l/102659-overriding-pages-overview-and-che…

And finally - your page assignments should look like this:

Hopefully that makes things work for you.

Everything has been setup that way… I just double-checked. I had been following instructions here: http://help.skuidify.com/m/page-assignments-and-overrides/l/102660-overriding-tab-and-list-actions-d…

Am I missing something? Entirely possible as the eyes are getting tired over here!



You can put the Label  of the tab in the Tab to Override, Can you try to put “Projects” instead of “Project__c”

Hmm, we are a little stumped.  

Would you mind giving us login rights to your org so we can take a look at what is going on?   Here is how: 

1. Use this tutorial to give us login rights: http://help.skuidify.com/m/getting-started/l/182412-getting-help-how-to-grant-skuid-login-rights-to-…

2. Then send an email to support@skuidify.com  with your org Id and the name of the page where the problem is happening. 

We’ll see if we can find out what’s going on…
