Tabs

Function: Similar to accordions, tabs is a type of menu-like device that organizes headers/sections in an effective way. Used to reduce length of a site page and hide content unless the user wants to view it.

Number of options: 3

Step 1: Browse options and copy and paste shortcode

Look through all the options and select the one that will work best. The corresponding shortcode is directly under the tabs feature it creates. Copy and paste your chosen shortcode into the WordPress Editor where you wish it to appear.

*Copy all of the code, including the [ ] on either end.

Step 2: Customize your tab(s)

To change the section titles, simply replace Tab A/B/C with your preferred section title. So if you want the section title to be Go Huskies title=”Tab A”¬†will become title=”Go Huskies”.

*Remember to not delete the quotation marks while modifying the section title.

To insert content into any given tab section, simply replace Insert Content Here with your content. A variety of content can be included in tabs, including but not limited to buttons, cards, headers and copy of course.

*Remember to not delete the end brackets when inserting content.

To add another section, simply copy [tabs_section title="Tab C"] Insert Content Here[/tabs_section] and paste it directly below your last section but before the /uw_tabs end code.

*Be wary of making too many sections for one particular tabs feature. It may be advantageous to create multiple on your page instead, or think about displaying your information in a different way altogether.

Step 3 (optional): Defaulting a particular tab section open

If you want to have a section of your tab feature already open for external users to see, simply add active=’true’ to any of the sections after the section title attribute. If you do not add this attribute, the tab feature will automatically have the first section open for viewing.

Before

[tabs_section title="Tab B"]

After

[tabs_section title="Tab B" active="true"]

 

Example of this effect:

Insert Content Here

Step 4 (optional): Assign an id to your tabs

Attributes are the pieces within the shortcode that you modify to customize your shortcode. For tabs, we did this in Step 2 to change the title of the sections. An optional attribute that you can add is an id. IDs are a way to assign a unique identifier to a specific shortcode or section. Some shortcodes have slightly different behaviors with IDs than others, to view those as well as best practices please visit our best practices for IDs page.
