[resolved] [Plugin: TheThe Tabs and Accordions] Display Recent Posts (2 posts)

    Hello, I have installed "TheThe Tabs and Accordions" plugin version 1.0.6 with WP 3.2.1. I would like to display recent posts using these tabs but I don't know how that would be done. Ideally it would be a scrolling box held within the tabbed area. I can achieve that with CSS but can't figure out how I might add the PHP required to display posts. I tried using the plugin "Shortcode Exec PHP" to input my recent posts but that didn't work.

    My question is, how can I call the plugin from a page template rather than a shortcode? And then, how can I input the PHP for recent posts? Thanks so much. This should look really cool when all finished.

    Tabs Shortcode

    [tabs title="Tabs Group Title" active=1 event="click"]
    [tab title="News"][event_recent_posts][/tab]
    [tab title="Events"]Second tab content[/tab]
    [tab title="Calendar"][event_recent_posts][/tab]
    [/tabs]

    Shortcode Exec PHP code

    $args = array( 'numberposts' => 5, 'offset'=> 0, 'category' => 5 );
    $lastposts = get_posts( $args );
    foreach($lastposts as $post) : setup_postdata($post); ?>
    <h6><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h6>
    <?php the_content(); ?>
    <?php endforeach; ?>

    I nixed this plugin. I am now using "WP UI - Tabs, accordions and more" which works in the same manor using shortcodes.
