    Vertical Tabbed Widgets would be perfect for my setup.

    Okay I'm an idiot! Next time, I should actually test things out before making a conclusion!

    Roger is right... it is a simple jQuery issue.

    Follow-up... Tabbed Widgets on 2.8 doesn't detect all widgets available.

    Any further progress on a 2.8-compatible update?

    Roger, I have read your solution, but I don't know how to fix this and where to look (wich files of the plugin).

    I am also very desperatly in need of this excellent plugin...

    I'll be glad to do some beta testing on my local server at home. Just need to know where to look to try to fix this issue.

    I have never used this plugin before, but it sounds like it could be very useful. I found a couple of plugins that I thought might give me tabbed widgets.

    - Tabbed Widgets
    - Fun with Sidebar Tabs

    Neither of which appear to be currently working. (I believe I am running on WordPress version 2.7.1)

    If anyone knows of a tabbed widget that supports 2.7.1 or greater, please let me know. In the meantime, I'll keep an eye on this thread and see if it gets it's support updated.

    Thanks,
    Geoff

    Tabbed Widgets works fine in 2.7.1, but is buggy in 2.8+.

    Yeah, sorry that should read 2.8.1, my mistake.

    Echoing everyone's pleas for an update. We love this plugin and like alsd had just found it and were about to donate, when the wordpress changed & left the plug in not working.
    Unlike alsd we were of a different mentality. We wanted to wait to see if the plugin ever was updated before donating. We would love to believe it will be and would gladly donate if it is, however now two months later it doesn't seem to be of much interest to the author. I hope we are wrong.
    We've tried to find Roger's fix, but searches through the files have led to dead ends and we aren't code savvy enough to understand how to fix this. If anyone could explain further we'd greatly appreciate it.
    Or if anyone has found other options I'm sure all of us would love to hear them. Thanks for being such a great community.

    Hi all. Looks like the plugin developer has a new toy http://konstruktors.com/blog/random-musings/1535-oscar-24h/#more-1535 .

    All WordPress users are being asked to upgrade to 2.8.4 because of a big security issue and this plugin is going on a year without an upgrade which is holding a lot of people back from upgrading.

    Can we at least have an estimate on when an update will be available or let us know if the plugin is being abandoned so those using it can move on.

    Looks like the Section Widget plugin may be an alternative for WordPress 2.8+:

    http://blogs.ubc.ca/support/plugins/section-widget/

    If you need to run PHP code within the widget, using the PHP-Exec plugin with the Section Widget plugin should work:

    http://bluesome.net/post/2005/08/18/50/

    Just make sure you check the "Everywhere" box in the Section Widget when adding your tabs so the tabs will show up, and to also configure PHP-Exec and check the box in the settings to have PHP run within widgets. I haven't fully tested but copying some content from Tabbed Widgets in 2.71 to the Section Widget in 2.8.4 seemed to do the trick. Plus there are 25 CSS styles for the tabs. Good luck.

    Thanks for the link, btlewand.

    Here's another alternative:

    Will be testing these two out.

    Okay the Section Widget plugin looks like the way to go. Pity it can't use existing widgets like kaspars' plugin does. sidebarTabs can use existing widgets, but can only handle one tabbed widget, which is a shame.

    One plus about Section Widget is how you can order the tabs via drag 'n drop!

    Another method to input PHP in Section Widget is with the author's own PHP Shortcode plugin:

    By the way, according to a comment made on August, on his website, kaspars says he is pretty much done updating Tabbed Widgets for WP 2.8+, he just hasn't updated the javascript code.

    If you can wait for kaspars to finish the plugin, then wait.

    If you can't, I recommend Section Widget. There's positives to using Section Widget such as conditional placement on your WP site (similar to Widget Logic, but more user-friendly) and the many, bundled tabbed themes.

    I'll wait for the update. I prefer a vertical tab than horizontal.

    Hope this gets updated soon! I've been looking for something like it and it turns out this is exactly what I wanted. I tried out SidebarTabs, but don't like the script it uses for the tabs.

    I'm hoping for an update as well. I did research for a project back in may, tested the tab widget, got the client hooked on the implementation, and now that we are finally putting the project together, no widget. Darn it.

    This guy is working on allowing you to have multiple widgets.
    Vertical and Horizontal!

    So it's coming, just not sure when. I have the beta for it if anyone wants to test it. Let me know.

    Looking good, xberserker!

    I'd be interested in the beta.

    Which is easier to use in your opinion, Tabbed Widgets or SidebarTabs beta?

    I haven't tried the SidebarTabs Beta yet myself. So I can't say.

    I never tried Tabbed Widgets since it doesn't work in 2.8.5

    Use my contact page to send me your e-mail and I'll forward you the beta if you'd like.

    I like the idea of this plugin but unfortunately it does not currently work with the latest version of wordpress (2.8.6) or with the theme I'm using.

    I'm using iBlogPro 3 Theme which gives you the ability to have a scrolling feature gallery on the front page and this plugin causes it to not work.

    If it wasn't for that, great plugin. Wish I could use it.

    Hey Everyone, great news -- I have managed to find the time to update the plugin. Please test it and report your findings (in a new forum topic, please).

    Many thanks to everyone who donated!
