    I've been stumped trying to figure out how to add html anchor links between tabs -- so that clicking a link opens a closed tab and scrolls to the named anchor. tried following variety of tuts and editing shortcode.js but nothing working for me. have any suggestions? Thanks (really like the arconixpc.com plugins.

    Hi wasanajones,

    Thank you for using my plugin and for the kind words. You wouldn't have to edit any of the javascript files to get that linking working.

    Assuming you haven't set the id parameter of the shortcode, it will default to name. To set an anchor link to a tab called Business on a Page called About on domain mydomain.com, here's the anchor link you'd create:
    < a href="mydomain.com/about#business" >My Link< /a >

    Removing the spaces, of course. Hopefully that helps.

    thanks for the prompt reply, still have troubles with this. seems like it should be simple, but can't get things working for a link from one tab to another, or a same page link. and using /about#business/ (with the href and quotes and slashes, but without domain) is breaking the tabs

    If the linking occurs on the same page, then the href link should only point to "tab" plus the tab title

    I was incorrect in my initial example, the href link should have been /about#tab-business

    Check out http://test.arconixpc.com/tabs/#tab-tab-2 as an example
