WP-Tabbity brings the power of the jQuery UI Tabs function to WordPress authors by allowing them to use shortcodes to create one or more tab groups containing one or more tabs to any post or page. The author can just enter basic tab information for a single set of tabs or even specify CSS ID and Classes for each tab and tab group for extra customization.

The tabs are styled according to a few included jQuery Themeroller themes, but the included themes can always be modified or more could be downloaded at any time from the jQuery Theme Roller. The plugin also allows for the introduction of your own custom CSS file.

Basic Usage

(First, create your tabs:)
[wp-tabbity title=”This is a tab”]
Blah, blah, blah. The content of the first tab
[wp-tabbity title=”This is another tab”]
Yadda, yadda, yadda. The content of the second tab.
(Then, give them a home)
