To add tabs to you post or pages just add this shortcode:

[tabs]
[tab title="title1"] tab content 
tab content 
[/tab]
[tab title="title2"] 
another content tab 
[/tab]
[/tabs]

Here are the some attributes that the shortcode also excepts
// default attributes
[tabs collapsible=true selected=’0′ event=’click’ position=’top’ ]
[tab title=”title1″]
tab content
[/tab]
[tab title=”title2″]
another content tab
[/tab]
[/tabs]

  • collapsible = true or false – weather the tabs should be allowed to be collapsed – this doesn’t work with twitter bootstrap
  • selected = integer for example – what tab should be selected. 0 means the first tab. 1 means the second tab etc.
  • event = ‘click’ or ‘mouseover’ – does do you user need to click on the tab or just mouse over to get to the content. Tip: Don’t use mouseover if you are concerned with mobile.
  • position = ‘top’ , ‘bottom’ , ‘left’, ‘right’ on what side do you want the tabs to appear. See screenshots for an example.
  • vertical_tabs = true or false – depreciated is the same as position = left

Sample CSS

Want to style the tabs a different way.

Here is some sample css to get you started.
Another place to look for it would be the http://jqueryui.com/themeroller/,
The shortcode used the jQuery UI to generate the tabs unless you are using the twitter bootstrap framework.
See the FAQ on how to deal with that case.
