    hi im trying to get the plugin to display a comparison type look. so it would include info from custom fields i have created in every post.

    eg:
    company1, description, apply
    company2, description, apply
    company3, description, apply
    company4, description, apply
    company5, description, apply

    any help would be great.

    thanks

    So to be clear, you want the contents of the tabs to display custom field data, as opposed to content put directly into the WordPress editor.

    Would that be an accurate description of what you're trying to accomplish?

    Easiest way i can think of doing this is to create your own shortcode(s) to fetch the company data for you. You could have the shortcode(s) support a few attributes to cover fetching a series of fields.

    The reason i suggest a shortcode specifically is because it's then just a matter of entering your shortcode inside the tab shortcodes, eg.

    [tab name="example"]
    [yourcompanyshortcode][/yourcompanyshortcode]
    [/tab]

    How code able are you? Have you read any documentation for coding in WordPress or sought after any particular solutions so far? Do you have experience writing PHP?

    Your support request does extend beyond the realm of plugin hacking/support to some degree, but that said, i'm more than happy to assist if you just need some direction or even if you need some code to work from(ie. give you a base to build from).
