Shortcodes Ultimate
Feature Request: Default Tab & Click Link To Change Tabs (4 posts)

    I've been playing with the Shortcodes Ultimate plugin and it is excellent. It does make very light work of so many potentially tricky jQuery jobs... So Thanks!

    Anyway, I have 2 feature requests that I hope will be considered.

    1. A way of changing tabs by clicking on a link
    2. Setting the default tab to be opened.

    I'm not sure, but these may be part of the same thing. With some jQuery tab systems, if the URL has #tabid at the end (anchor link), then the tab will open.

    At the moment, the tabs don't have id attributes set, so it's not going to work.

    Please can this be added?

    Thanks in advance.

    i second this! this would truly make the plugin do what it appears to be designed to do. this works for the toggle, seems like the tabs would be just as easy to develop.

    I've been doing a bit of reading up and ideally it would be great if the Tab functionality was also "Accessibility" friendly. Not many people develop sites or plugins with visually impaired users in mind!

    For people who use Screen Readers like Jaws, new functionality like the Tabs and other jQuery wizardry can mess things up. Anchor elements that are empty (use the # link) convey no useful information. So for normal sighted people, the visual aspect of jQuery is great... but for visually impaired people, this usability sucks...

    Anyway, here's a really cool article of how to create jQuery Accessible Tabs... And "yes" it does also do that opening tabs through links thing I was looking for. :D

    Hope this is useful... (and gets put into the next version!).

    Hello friends,

    did you have a quick solution for the tab link?

    I'm migrating from WP-UI Tab to SU because of theme compatibility.

    i have a lot of existing link to tab, for example http://www.website.com/page/#tablink

    Please advice, thanks
