Displaying Page content inside of Tabber Widget like this
Posted 28 August 2010 - 11:51 AM
After many hours of trying to find / figure out how to get this effect to work, Ronald enlightened me that the tabber widget was used on the WP Plug in's directory 'Plug in' homepages to display the contents of a different page when a tab is clicked. See here for an example. You will note that when a tab is clicked the URL changes to point to page from which the content is retrieved/displayed.
After quite a few hours more work and research I cannot for the life of me figure out how this is done.
Please can someone show me?

there may be some misunderstanding. I pointed you to a plugin that does something similar, and it's a plugin that's created by our very own Dustin "PluginBuddy" Bolton. It does not retrieve any page contents, but rather, it allows you to define a set of tabs in the widget settings from the wp-dashboard, after which you can use the WordPress widget functionality to populate any of those tabs, with a text widget, or any other widget.
Hope that clarifies,

I am utterly new here and trying to populate the Tabber widget with content. I cannot find any articles or instructions about how to do that and am wondering what I am missing.
This plugin appears to be the answer to my dreams (I am not a programmer) and I already appreciate it just because I could get the tabs to show up EASILY in my sidebar.
But no content. I tried to drag another widget into the Tabber widget but that didn't work. ../../../wp-content/plugins/simple-forum/editors/tinymce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-undecided.gif
You can see what I got to work on the right sidebar (below "Most Recent Posts) here:

Help is most appreciated.
P.S. I love your site layout, colors, etc., by the way!

I think I see what the problem is. Here is what it says under "Installation" on the WP page for the plugin.
- Activate the Tabber Tabs Widget plugin
- Head on over to your themes widget area. You will see two news items: Tabber Tabs Widget Area and Tabber Tabs Widget.
- Drag some of your existing widgets (ie. Pages, Archives, etc) on to the Tabber Tabs Widget Area.
- Drag the Tabber Tabs Widget on to one of your sidebars (ie Sidebar 1, Sidebar 2, etc)
BAM! You now have a tabbed area in your sidebar. Congratulations!
I'm running Thesis 1.7 and WP 3.01.

You first drag the tabber widget into an existing widget(this will be where you tabs will show). Then there should be existing widgets there(depending on how many tabs you have created) labeled tabber-tabberwidget and you place your content there. I hope this helps clarify things.
There are some plugin walkthrough videos on our youtube channel check it out!

"What do you mean "drag the tabber widget into an existing widget"?
Can you guys not have a step-by-step instructions to make it simple or is this a marketing ploy?
For me, this will only turn people off and I haven't slept the whole night trying to figure this thing out.
You do not provide no screenshots like the other plugins.
God, if it was simple and easy, I would have donated some money for the effort like I always do.
Keep it simple for simple folks like me.
