Fun with Sidebar Tabs

Creates one or more tabbed dynamic sidebars for your sidebar

Styling the plugin

If you use the widget to add the tabbed sidebar to you main sidebar you can also re-style the CSS. After you have added the widget to the sidebar open the tabbed sidebar widget options and you will be presented with boxes containing the default CSS. You can now tweak this to your satisfaction.

Update to resolve problems generating the CSS


Note: There have been some changes to the CSS so you may need to make amendments to each sidebar's settings.

Moved the minimum requirement from 2.3 to 2.5. Amended the CSS to use IDs instead of classes to try and overcome the CSS specifity issues. Switched the order of the CSS and Javascript loading for Safari and FF3 to make sure the CSS loads before the Javascript runs. Updated the Javascript to cope with the way PCSafari and FF3 trigger document ready earlier than expected. Updated the calculation for tab levels to prevent wrapping.


Amended to try and cope with Jquery 1.1.4


This version now uses JQuery instead of Prototype, and can deal with more tabs than the width of the box allows.

Requires: 2.5 or higher
Compatible up to: 2.7
