Has anyone gotten the Quicktabs module to work on mouseover/hover instead of click?
There was a patch for version 6.x-2 that does not work with the current version.

I ended up making a couple of edits to quicktabs.js. At its most basic, in line 24 I changed 'click' to 'mouseenter' and changed the name of the quicktabsClick() function to quicktabsHover().

When the user clicked the link in the tab, though, the page refreshed; I added the following at line 25 (below the new call to quicktabsHover):

$(this).unbind('click').bind('click', quicktabsClick);

I also added a new function:

var quicktabsClick = function() {
    return false;

You are not making changes to the modules JS files are you? – saadlulu Oct 31 '12 at 7:36
I did, yes. And I'm making sure not to update. – jay-ess Oct 31 '12 at 21:12
@jay-ess Make a patch and submit to Drupal.org – niksmac Dec 6 '12 at 6:48
@Nikhil - This really needs to be something that is configurable, which I did not do and is out of my league. I believe there has been some talk about making it so, but I have not revisited. – jay-ess Dec 6 '12 at 16:15
