Hello Sridhar,

it's definetly not a browser problem. It occures with every browser. It seems clear to me, that it is obviously a Tabber/jQuery-Problem. Just look at my previous posts and the hints I found for this. I'm no jQuery expert so I'm not able to figuere out, how the jQuery-code of Tabber must be changed to solve this issue, that the jQuery code of tabber does not cause actions to links inside the Tabber tabs.

Exact same problem. Just discovered this thread.

Nothing happens when clicking on an # anchor tag inside a tab, for any widget. That same link, outside a tab, works.

See this: <a  href="http://wgbhalumni.org/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://wgbhalumni.org/</a>

This is the best sidebar plugin, but this is also a significant problem.

are you using a plugin for the recent comments? Rather than the standard WordPress widget?

Well, the problem is clear, but it seems no one is able to program in jQuery. The "support" only seems to ask questions :)

My jQuery knowledge is very poor, but I think I found the problem - and the solution. As I said this is a general problem with all anchor-links inside tabber tabs, so we have to make sure, that the plugin script only refers to links with a "tabber achor".

So in tabber-widget/js/jquery.idTabs.min.js replace

var list=$("a[href*='#']",tabs)
var list=$("a[href*='#tab']",tabs)
Now all links to "normal" anchors work well and the tabber script only refers to tabber anchors.
