tabbed widget in a sidebar

Recommended Posts

fkpress

i tried nearly every tab-widget for the sidebar in my platform pro site - but nothing worked in the layout of the theme. do you recommend a plugin/widget to use with page lines?

There are no tabbed widgets by default in the theme. I would suggest a plugin like the one here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tabbed-widgets. There are more if you see here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=tabbed+widgets&sort=

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

i choosed tabbed-widgets. but if i place this widget somewhere on the frontpage, all the formatting of the widget is away. there is no background for the tabs. you can see it here: www.puffbohne.net - in the universal widget right next to the first blogentry.

Hi, I just checked out the plugin on the Wordpress repo and its been tagged as broken by a few users, this is most likely the reason why it hasnt worked. I know the author of this plugin is currently working on a new version but in the meantime I would recommend, uninstalling it. You could try this one instead: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tabber-widget/

Please search our forums, before posting!

also a problem with tabber-widget - take a look please. it just shows all tab-content, clicks on tab-names lead to different places on the page.

@fkpress It's a jQuery error that's causing it not to work. I'm curious, did you input this jQuery line in the sidebar: [code]jQuery("#tabber_widget-3-content ul").idTabs();[/code] Or does the widget add that automatically? If you read up on no conflict with jQuery, it should help you out. Modifying that line may fix the issue.

I think if you remove the widget, the problem of the code Kate mentioned will disappear. However, I'd like to suggest this one http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/rico-ajax-menu/ The RICO Ajax tabbed menus set the standard for all the rest of them. I cannot guaranty it will work, but let's see if it does.

i removed the widget - also it is a good one. just layout is no good. the rico-ajax-men?? is working, the layout is very adjustable. but the widget does not allow to show the widgets in tabs i like to be shown... so: still searching...

Perhaps the RICO one can be fixed with CSS?

Ive been searching for something like this for ages and the only one i could really find that worked is the Tabber Tabs Widget http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tabber-tabs-widget/ The only problem is that is doesnt work if people have adblock enabled
