Tabbed Widgets - not working (23 posts)

    Hi,
    I think that Tabbed Widgets is really great! It will be even better if I can get it to work!

    I'm thinking that it might be a theme thing. I am using Atahualpa.

    What I am seeing is that anything I place in the "Invisible Widget Area" is invisible. When I place Tabbed Widgets in the sidebar, still ok... When I add the items in the Invisible Widget area to Tabbed Widgets I get no tabbed widgets in my sidebar... but the widgets I have selected in Tabbed Widgets show up in my sidebar as ordinary widgets. No sign of anything tabbed.

    I'm uptodate on WP, PHP, etc...

    Other plugins I have use jquery... maybe a conflict there?

    I have the same problem, using the default theme. It doesn't seem to make any difference if the widget is in the invisible area or not it still is available in the "Tabbed Widget" drop-down box. Any widget selected appears in the sidebar without tabs. WP 2.8.6.

    kendawes, which exact version of PHP are you using? What is the URL of your website?

    It works ok with the default theme on my blog. What is the URL of your site?

    Hi Kaspar,
    I just upgraded to .83 and the tabs sort of work but I don't think correctly. It is currently a "virgin" installation with a few plugins installed (let me know if you need the list). The site URL is andyandgreg60th.com. I have added a three tabbed widget for testing.

    Perhaps I just need the correct style sheet?

    Your advice would be appreciated.

    Cheers, Greg.

    whitsundaysgreg, it works exactly like expected on your site! Try shortening tab titles so that they fit into a single line.

    kendawes, I don't see tabbed widgets anywhere on your site.

    Hi Kaspar,
    I think I need to do some work on styles. I haven't decided on a base theme yet for this site, so I'll sort out the tab style when I've done that. Thanks for your help.
    Cheers,
    Greg.

    Hi Kaspar,
    Yes that is correct, I don't have the Tabbed Widgets on the site because they don't work when I try to use them! As I said, the items that should be tabbed show up as "regular" widgets. They also mess up the formatting of other widgets in the sidebar in Firefox (ok in IE). Because it messes things up, I can't leave the Tabbed Widgets up for you to see. I did copy the source with the Tabbed Widgets active and uploaded it to...

    kendawes, the plugin is working fine on your site. It is just the CSS that is making it look wrong.

    Let me know if you would like to me to fix this for you:

    i'm having a weird issue with tabbed widgets too:

    1) when i activate the tabbed widgets plugin, all the widgets that were in my sidebar disappear (they're not gone, they've just moved to the inactive area).

    2) if i put any widget into the sidebar, it doesn't show up... but when i put them in the "invisible widgets area", they appear in my sidebar normally.

    3) as you can imagine, using the actual "tabbed widgets" widget doesn't work, no matter what widget container it's placed in

    wordpress 2.9
    php 5.2

    another question: http://www.fourhourworkweek.com/blog/
    is "most popular posts" in the sidebar using tabbed widgets?

    Hi Kaspar,

    This widget is exactly what I was looking for but like some of the others in this forum it does not work. I placed the widgets I want in the tabbed section in the invisble widget area (popular posts and daily posts) but when they appear in the sidebar they are not tabbed but appear beneath each other and without the configuration settings for the plugin Top 10 - that the widgets are related to.

    I am guessing that it is a theme problem and that your plugin, as fantastic as it is - will not work with certain themes. I am using the Proximity News Theme. In fact there was a tabbed section in the original theme but I removed it as it used Popularity Contest which I did not like and most commented and one would not work without the other.

    So I use popular posts and daily posts as two separate widgets. See People with Voices

    I suspect that that all that would be needed to get it to work would be a few adjustment to the original code in the jtabber.php file that controls the tabbed section and in the sidebar.php file and customs css file. Howevever, although I have been able to make some minor modifications with guidance I do not understand php code and would hate to mess up my website.

    I have had to keep the widgets as they were as I run a news site and can't afford to have the tabbed widgets not displaying properly on my website. Do you think you can get this to work and if so at what cost? (We are a social enterprise/voluntary organisation)

    Thanks

    baglierd, just noticed that your theme doesn't use unique IDs for widgets, which are necessary for Tabbed Widgets to work (see here: http://konstruktors.com/blog/wordpress/322-tabbed-widgets-plugin-for-wordpress/)

    I had problems with the "tabs" appearing too, and did check to insure that my theme does use unique IDs, which it does. After troubleshooting I found an apparent conflict with the WP-e-commerce plug that I use for my "e-store". It uses J-scripts. When I deactivated this plugin the "tabs" appeared and the "tabbed-widget" worked fine. When I reactivated the WP-e-commerce plugin, the tabs quit working, suggesting some kind of conflict. Any suggestions?

    WP 2.9.2; WP-e-Commerce 3.7.6.5

    Thanks

    habibdie, your problem is caused by the "Addw2p" plugin not Tabbed Widgets.

    This widget looks to be impressive, but like others it appears to be conflicting with other things on my site.

    The widgets show up one under the other instead of being tabbed and another item (loan calculator) that I had in the sidebar is not showing up correctly.

    Any ideas?
