Tabber widget plugin for wordpress

This is a jquery based lightweight plugin to create tab in the wordpress widget. Tabs can be really useful, we can save a lot of space just by placing our block of content in tabs and displaying one block at a time in the same place. Using this plugin maximum we can display two tabs. and we can display the linkable text within the tab. in the admin we have separate page to manage the tab text.

  1. Hello. I am having trouble configuring the link setting. I have a long script link from a xml data link that is quite lengthy. How do I configure it? I get a return value in the search bar with the existing domain name and the link text …


    check out the left tab for hotels….also. the text area is not long enough for the link.
    where may I edit the properties for the link to hold a longer amount of characters?

    • Hi Lanna Campbell,

      At present the length of the link text box is 250, in the next update we will increase this length.

      Please check your database and there you can find the table for the plugin (wp_gtabber). increase the data type length for the column “gtabber_link”. and open the content-management.php file from the plugin directory and increase the maxlength for the text box gtabber_link.

  2. I’m confused. When I hit ‘left/right’, it just jumps to the bottom of my current page and appends ‘#GTabberRight’ to the end of my url. How would I fix this?

  3. Hi there,

    Thanks for the great plug in.

    Question: I am trying to set up the widget. However, when get to the settings page I see the sample links. Do I have to insert every single post manually? Or does that list populate itself?



  4. I am creating a list linked with email contact information. This list changes frequently… and I need to order these alphabetically by last name. When I add a new contact, can I easily move the new listing for the right order? How would I do this without having to change the entire list?
