Support » Plugin: OptionTree » OT UI "glitch"

  • Resolved barinagabriel


    Hello Derek,

    my name is Gabriel, and I am one of the developers of Profile Builder (, UI of which is based on the OT plugin, with a very beautiful and smooth UI.

    What we noticed right from the beginning, is that the UI has a button (right under the icon), which lists the whole content (from several pages/tabs) in one single page.

    My question is, that we noticed this only recently, that when a setting (page/form) is saved, the UI reloads, and first loads the whole content in this single page, and only then loads the UI with the tabs on the left side.
    This phenomena can be noticed especially on slow servers.
    What we think happens is, that first the plugin loads a non-JS version content, and then styles it.

    Can you please elaborate on this, and offer us more insight on how OT was designed? – we would be very grateful!

    Should you wish to do so, you can also reply directly via email, to

    Hi Gabriel,

    The tabs are created via JS and more specifically jQuery UI .tabs() and if you have a slow server then yes it’s likely you’re going to experience a delay in the creation of the tabs. It seems possible to me that if you wanted to, you could use some CSS trickery to disguise the delay. Something you could even contribute to the plugin if you had the time to look into a solution.

    In the future, please direct your questions to the Github issue tracker for OptionTree at so it doesn’t take a month for me to respond. I very rarely check this forum as it’s lacking in many ways.
