Are you talking about an Ajax fetched content, or IFRAME? With the former, you can disable busting of cache by modifying the code in red in the .js file:

bustcacheparameter=(ajaxfriendlyurl.indexOf("?")!=-1)? "&"+new Date().getTime() : "?"+new Date().getTime()

to just:


For the later, try modifying the line:

window.frames["_ddajaxtabsiframe-"+contentdivid].location.replace(pageurl) //load desired page into iframe


window.frames["_ddajaxtabsiframe-"+contentdivid].location=pageurl //load desired page into iframe

both of them..
and btw i've edited the variable bustcacheparameter and window.frames
but it still doesn't work, it keeps on reloading the requested page of the tab..
is there anything else i should do?

Well, with the changes above, the browser will still load the requested tab's content each time, but it takes advantage of the browser cache so repeat requests should be from the browser cache, not a hard reload of the content. That's different from the script not requesting the content at all after the 1st time- there's no easy way to do this, since the content container area is overwritten each time with the active tab's content.

Now, Tab Content script (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/tabcontent.htm) loads all the contents all at once and merely toggles between them for any subsequent requests.
