    Does this support widgets in widgets?

    If so how do you do this?

    Needed for tabs implementation - or please suggest another method other than shortcodes.

    Thanks

    I'm afraid widgets inside widgets would be incredibly difficult to achieve. If you can use shortcodes for your tabs, then the TinyMCE widget supports adding shortcodes to your Page Builder pages.

    Thanks for your response Greg but I need another method other than shortcodes to comply with Theme Forests new guidelines.

    Widgets in widgets is supported by WordPress and is implemented in other plugins, but due to how widgets are added in your page builder, this isn't possible.

    Do you have any other methods to implement accordions / tabs that could work well with your page builder only using widgets?

    Would just like some insight as you know your plugins best.

    Appreciate any help :)

    Widgets inside widgets is something I could add to Page Builder in the future, but I'm afraid it wouldn't be coming any time soon. Unless someone is willing to help out.

    I heard about this new requirement from ThemeForest. Something you could do is create your own plugin with any shortcodes you need, then use something like TGM Plugin Activation to install the plugins.

    Thanks Greg.

    It seems like they are going towards needing page builders to add things like tabs, accordions, boxed content etc. These requirement will roll out in November so just want to make sure it's on your roadmap.

    Can help anyway I can :)
