BootStrap tabbable tabs-left class rendered incorrectly

Recommended Posts


Hi Ken,


I think the problem is:

1.  If you don't have custom code for the classes on your website directly, it will not pull styling from Twitter.  Do you have the CSS for the classes in Custom Code?  (Sorry if you answered this previously.)

2.  PageLines has a Twitter Bootstrap built in already, which I think conflicts with what you're trying to do.  The tabs code we have should work within the tabbable tabs-left class you're using, provided you have the CSS.


Here's what I tested in my site, which worked fine, as our standard tabs. See it here: http://www.epicurus.com/members/test-accordion

<div class="tabbable tabs-left"><!-- your Twitter Bootstrap code -->
[pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"]
[pl_tabtitle active="yes" number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle]
[pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle]
[pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"]
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit
[pl_tabcontent number="2"]

Hi there,


As a last resort, you could try using css to fix, reducing the width of the tab content to see if it pushes up to the right side of the tab. - http://screencast.com/t/Stq4VplpM


.tab-content {
    backgroundnone repeat scroll 0 0 #F5F5F5;

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Hi James,


Thanks for the solution.  The tabs now work as expected! although I still can see the same problems in Rob's link which demonstrated that the problem was not only the result of the style customization of my site.  Thanks for the help anyway.

      Any chance of a pagelines table plug-in coming? I know that the use of short codes and bootstrap can achieve this, but I can't seem to find any easy/visual editor way of doing this. There are table plug-ins around for wordpress, but honestly, they are pretty clunky. I'd pay for a tables plug-in, given how much I would use tables if I could.

      I checked the demo for the new bootstrap theme (http://themes.pagelines.com/bootstrap/) and I really liked the slider on it. I suppose it was not done using 'impulse' or 'flick slider', was it? How was it done?

      I'm having problems with bootstrap popovers being cut off the edge of the browser. I'm using the latest version of dms (2.2) and this problem occurs on all browsers tested. Please can you let me know how we can fix this?

      It could TOTALLY be the shortcodes I've got in there but I wanted to see if any of you could pinpoint the issue faster than I could. Any help would be must appreciated.
