WP 2.8 = No More Tab Sidebar (8 posts)

    I'm not sure what changed. Maybe it's the new coding with WP 2.8, but upon upgrading, my sweet tabs.php widget no longer functions as tabs, but more of a regular old sidebar... I either want my tabs back, or a link to downgrade my WP back to when it worked. Please?

    I'll wait to upgrade my other site I guess...

    Any help out there?

    Restore backups of files and database to revert to 2.7.1

    Otherwise, a link to the plugin/widget you use, please.

    Assuming this might help your plugin author:

    Sorry for the delay!

    I'm not sure if there is a link to the widget. I downloaded a free theme from Woo Themes that included the widget into the design.

    http://briancrussell.net/ is where the problem is occurring. It's the first sidebar on the right where the tabs... aren't working.

    Since I downloaded a free theme, I can't access their support page without paying money...

    Here's the coding though:
    <div id="tabs">

    <ul class="idTabs tabs clearfix">
    <li class="nav1"><img src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/ico-1.gif" alt="Comments" />
    <li class="nav2"><img src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/ico-2.gif" alt="Popular" />
    <li class="nav3"><img src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/ico-5.gif" alt="TAgs" />

    <div class="inside">

    <ul id="comm">
    <?php include(TEMPLATEPATH . '/includes/comments.php' ); ?>

    <ul id="pop">
    <?php include(TEMPLATEPATH . '/includes/popular.php' ); ?>

    <div id="tagcloud">
    <?php wp_tag_cloud('smallest=12&largest=20'); ?>



    Does that help?

    Check the CSS classes of the container divs - i just found a similar problem with one of my problems one the wordpress dashboard. There have been layout changes in 2.8 and new CSS classes like 'has-sidebar' have turned up.

    It's worth giving them a check! Because it took me ages to figure out the bug, but the fix was one line of code.

    I'm sorry, I'm not terribly great at this whole coding business. Could you explain a bit further what to look for?
