Hi there,
Using WP v. 3.8, Builder v. 4.2.0 and Air child theme v. 4.0.3 and installed tabber-widget plugin v. 1.0.6 on this page: http://wptester.com/

Question: I would like to NOT have any tabs open when visiting the page until the visitor clicks on one. Currently the first tab titled health is open when you visit. Is there a way to have all tabs closed until one is selected? I've searched all documentation and 5 pages of topic here in the forum and have not seen the question or the answer to this.

Thanks for you assistance in advance and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

there's no way to do so without editing the javascript, however, a workaround could be to add a "dummy" first tab (that is opened by default) and then hide that. Say that "Health" is that dummy tab, then add the following code at the end of your child themes stylesheet style.css:

to hide the (first) tab at the top:

#tabber_widget-3-content ul li:first-child {
display: none;

then, to hide the contents (note, needs editing if you change to another first tab, use firebug to find the element to target)

#tabber_widget-3-content #it_widget_content-2 {
display: none;

this might also need more tweaking, but perhaps it's a start.
