One of the most requested leafs around the Headway community is one which presents content in tabbed panels. And just as often, we get asked if there’s a leaf which does tabbed widgets. As of now, the answer is yes to both, and what’s more, they are one in the same leaf!
Our Australian developer, Chris Howard – known for the hugely popular Excerpts+ and Gallery+ leafs – now brings another brilliant leaf to the “plus” series, Tabs+.
Tabs+ adds native tabbed content support to Headway Themes and the content can be posts, excerpts, pages and even widgets. Furthermore, as well as standard horizontal and vertical tabs, it also supports vertical accordion style tabs.
Have you ever wanted to shrink your page so the user doesn’t have to scroll so much? Maybe you show your 10 most recent posts on the home page but your home page is becoming unweildingly long? No worries. Tabs+ accordion layout is just what you’re looking for!
Ever wanted to group your widgets and minimize the space they take up in the sidebar? No worries, Tabs+ tabbed horizontal widgets is just what you need!
Those are just two examples of how Tabs+ will help tidy up your pages, and bring more content into the immediate view of your readers. Best of all, the content in the inactive tabs is only being hidden from your readers. It is still visible to search engines, so your SEO is not affected.
- Layouts: Vertical and horizontal tabs; Vertical accordions
- Content types: Posts (Full/Excerpt), Pages, Widgets
- Thumbnails in tabs
- Option for tab titles to display Text, Numbers or Bullets
- Custom text for tab titles
- Tabs can be changed by: Mouse click; Mouse hover; Double click; or Automatically
- Tabs and panels styling
- Background styling can take single HTML colours, multiple ofr gradients, or full CSS declarations for complex gradients
- Extensive CSS classes for designers to customize even further
The following shows a couple of examples
