Is there any plans to add a shortcode to tabber? If not can you give me a general guidline how to add it. By the way, using tabber as a guide, I have created an accordion widget, and would be glad to give it to iThemes to polish and give away, as I have no desire to release it, don't want the support it as I am not that confident how the underpinnings work.

thanks,

Danny

I've added this suggestion to the Wishlist for this product. It shouldn't be difficult to implement so I'll look at getting this added soon. Thanks!

Any progress on adding shortcodes to Tabber? I really can't find anything that compares to the functionality of Tabber, but I need it in a Page, not a widget area. Like this site: http://heatwurx.com/hwx-ap40.php

Can't quite figure out this "shortcode any widget" plugin, where I need to specify the tab set.

Bes, any tips for the plugin Ronald suggested or any other workarounds?

The suggested 'AmR Shortcode Any Widget' plugin specifies this format.

[do_widget "widget name"]. I'm guess "widget name" is TABBER or TABBER_WIDGET? But I have 4 different widget groups, so I'm not sure how this translates. This widget mentions other variations...

"If you use a widget more than once for different shortcodes, you can use
the widget id to isolate which widget instance (and of course
associated settings to use).  ie: [do_widget id=categories-6] "

Any ideas?

Hi Roy,

Thanks for the reply. Hmmm, that's the problem you'll face at this time with other plugins trying to auto-shortcode any non-shortcode widget plugins - they're external plugins and thus we don't support them [the reason you can already see: they'll have issues configuring to be run properly, for example].

I don't think you'll be able to use that shortcode formula [at least easily] with Tabber Widget at this time. Put the Tabber Widgets you want [all 4 of them] on any page in the widget section. Then look at the source code and find out their css identifier [for example, one of them may be tabber_widget-6 or something similar with the numbers varying].

Take that number and put it into the [do_widget id=6]. For widget name, try tabber_widget, yes.

If those don't work, I can't see at this time what can be done with that plugin. You'll have to wait for the official shortcode support for that then.

Regards,

Hello, here is another work around, I have used this to get tabber widgets on pages and posts:

This creates a widgetized sidebar you call with a shortcode.

In custom_functions.php:

//Registering the sidebar
function ilc_register_sidebars(){
	register_sidebar(array(
		'name' => 'Sidecode',
		'description' => 'Widgets in this area will be shown using [shortbar]',
		'before_widget' => '<div id="%1$s" class="%2$s">',
		'after_widget' => '</div>',
'before_title' => '<h3>',
'after_title' => '</h3>'
	));
}
add_action( 'init', 'ilc_register_sidebars');
add_shortcode( 'shortbar', 'shortbar_sc' );

//Creating the shortcode output
function shortbar_sc( $atts ) {
	ob_start();
	dynamic_sidebar('sidecode');
	$html = ob_get_contents();
	ob_end_clean();
	return $html;
}

Then call with: [shortbar]

Is it be possible to have multiple "sidecode" widgets for multiple pages? or can it only be used once?
Im trying to create 1 tabbed content for each of 10 product pages. similar to http://www.sttropeztan.com/self-tan-bronzing-mousse

or am I better off creating a layout for each of the 10 pages, with widget areas to embed tabber widget the default way?


thanks

I also just found this plugin called "Widgets on Pages" and it works great for me!  Below is an attached screen shot of where I was able to add the Tabber Widget to a static page.  I can't share the live link (yet) because the site is still in development mode, but figured the screenshot might help.

Let me know if there are questions.
