While the childtabs macro presents the material in the right way, I wanted to truncate characters from the left side of each tab. This would be similar to the navitabs ltrunc option.
The reason that I want to truncate my tabs is because all my page names are prefixed, but I do not want to show the prefix on each tab. The prefix is needed to allow pages with similar names to be located in the same space.
Can you include all the (appropriate) options from the navitabs macro in the childtabs macro?
