Simple Tabs Shortcodes

Description

Plugin adds shortcodes to place a page content in tabs. Uses a lightweight jQuery script, no additional CSS files so you need to add own CSS style to your theme’s stylesheet to ensure proper display of the tabs.

Installation

However, if you want to install it manually, follow these steps:

  1. Download the plugin and unzip the archive.
  2. Upload the entire simple-tabs-shortcodes folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress.

FAQ

Example usage

There are two shortcodes available, below is a simple example of usage:

[tabs]
[tab title="First tab"]The content of the first tab.[/tab]
[tab title="Second tab"]The content of the second  tab.[/tab]
[tab title="Third tab"]The content of the third tab.[/tab]
[/tabs]

This will output the following HTML:

<div class="tabs-container">
    <div class="tabs-nav">
        <ul>
            <li><a href="#first-tab" class="active">First tab</a></li>
            <li><a href="#second-tab">Second tab</a></li>
            <li><a href="#third-tab">Third tab</a></li>
        </ul>
    </div>
    <div class="tabs-content">
        <section id="first-tab" class="tab active">The content of the first tab.</section>
        <section id="second-tab" class="tab">The content of the second tab.</section>
        <section id="third-tab" class="tab">The content of the third tab.</section>
    </div>
</div>

Optionally, you can set a custom ID by adding id="my-id" in tab shortcode.

Example CSS

Here is an example CSS, make the necessary changes if you want to customize the look and feel of tabs.

.tabs-nav {
    margin: 0;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #ccc;
}
.tabs-nav ul {
    list-style: none;
}
.tabs-nav li {display: inline-block;}
.tabs-nav a {
    display: block;
    padding: 5px 10px;
    border: 1px solid transparent;
    text-decoration: none;
}
.tabs-nav a.active {
    border-color: #ccc;
    border-bottom-color: #fff;
}
section.tab {
    display: none;
    margin-bottom: 15px;
    padding: 15px 0;
}
section.tab.active {display: block;}
Selecting a tab by the URL

You can select default tab by using a hash in the URL – simply add #tab-name at the end of the page URL to select the specific tab. This example URL will select tab with the title / id “something”: http://domain.tld/your-page/#something

Switching to the tab by the link

Tabs can be switched by a normal link, just add a class tab-url to the link. Example:

<a class="tab-url" href="#something">Something</a>
