[resolved] replacing tabs with images (5 posts)

    How could I replace the text tab headers with images?

    As a turnaround, I moved the ul li of tab headers outside the screen {margin-left: -9999px;} and I linked images to url of each tab. But this doesn't really use jquery and the page is reloaded everytime an image is clicked. Any ideas?

    Currently the plugin is not written to support images; however I have been told that if you use a URL() of an image in the color box that it will use that as a background image for the tab. That is an option.

    however, i do like the method you used to implement this. I might consider adding functionality similar to this in the future.

    finally there's no negative margin, as you may have already seen. There is a class for the tab headers, which goes by display:none; and then I link manually to the images. I had to add the captions to the image itself though. It could be useful to add some image functionality though, since the usual wp user will have a hard time finding out the urls and then adding them manually in html mode of the editor.
