Linking to individual Spry tabbed panels not working

Hi folks, a couple of years ago Gramps kindly helped me with a way to create links to individual tabbed panels using the Spry Tabbed Panels 2 widget ( Unfortunately my site went down due to a change in host and many of my scripts were corrupted. I've managed to get my tabbed panels showing up again but am having no luck with specific tab links.


An example of how it should work is at


I've spent hours comparing the code of the two sites and cannot figure out why I cannot get links to open the correct tabs in this particular site. This link should open the "Survive" tab but does not:


I'd really appreciate some advice to get this site working correctly again.


Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

    Did you review David Powers' tutorial on this?


    Although Adobe abandoned Spry last year, I think you can still download SpryUtils.js from GitHub

    The problem lies with the version of SpryURLUtils.js


    The working site uses SpryDOMUtils.js - version 0.13 - Spry Pre-Release 1.7 (the so-called Spry version 2)


    The non-working site uses SpryURLUtils.js - version 0.1 - Spry Pre-Release 1.6.1

    It's really easy to foul things up when you are trying to use two different javascript files that basically do the same thing on a page. Instructions get crossed up when two separate scripts are looking for the same names of div tags to perform their magic.
