Tabbed Widgets Reloaded

Description

Tabbed interfaces can save a lot of vertical space and make your website look less cluttered.
Accordion type tabs are particularly useful if you want to have longer tab titles or more tabs that
wouldn’t otherwise fit into the given horizontal width.

Features:

  • Use other widgets for tab content and specify custom tab titles.
  • Make tabs rotate in a set interval, which makes them more noticeable and prominent.
  • Set a random start tab on each page load so that all tabbed content gets equal exposure.
  • Make unlimited number of tabbed widgets that can be then used as regular widgets under ‘Design’ › ‘Widgets’.
  • Ability to add custom style sheet under your theme folder. Just create a folder name “tabbed-widgets-reloaded” under your theme folder and create a file “tabbed-widgets.css” and out your all custom styles in it.

Why are Tabbed Widgets better than your theme’s built-in tabs?

With Tabbed Widgets you can use any widget inside the tabbed interface and you are no longer limited to what the theme designer had in mind.

Tabbed Widget design services

Tabbed widgets created by this plugin have very little CSS applied by default because every theme is very different. So, if you like to customize it’s design, you can drop in a line to me. I will help you to achieve your goal.

It is most likely that the widget must be configured before it can be used —
place it in the ‘Invisible Sidebar Area’, refresh the Widget
admin page and it should appear in the drop-down selection.
