Hi all,

I have seen a few websites which use a great spacesaving and good looking widget which uses tabs and mostly used for articles (popular, recent, top 10 etc). Here's a screenshot of one:

Do you know which plugin is used for this, if there is any? Or anybody knows how to make something like this?

I think it's great, hope u can help!

Marc

marced - what can't you figure out
carseller - "Do you mean tabbed widget in the theme?" ??? there is no tabbed widget in the theme. There is a plugin called Tabbed Widgets' (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tabbed-widgets/)

The widgets I put in the invisible widgets box just show up as regular widgets (no tabs). There was a thread in WordPress.org where an Atahualpa user had the same problem. It could very easily be a plugin conflict. I just didn't want to spend time on figuring it out.

I'll chime in here with a vote for the SidebarTabs plugin by Newton Horta... I am finding it pretty handy and Newton is very responsive to questions. He's even added some features I asked for!

Well... That one works Ken. It takes a bit of getting used to but looks pretty powerful.

It is pretty versatile!

I have even put SidebarTabs in an ATA widget area inside a page to pull different posts into a page by selecting the tab. Here's the link http://www.jutehome.com/ on the this and that, projects and press pages(the tabs are disguised with css coloring)

I could probably have done it somewhat less convolutedly, but I was dealing with a preexisting Wordpress site and converting it to ATA.

Very Nice... Very Clean... This is what most websites should be like IMHO.

kdawes01 - nice site, but painfully slow to load, 20-25 seconds to load the home page

Thanks Juggledad! Client constraints play into what I had to do, I'm afraid...

Hmmm... When I load the front page here.. its about 4-6 sec in both IE and FF - both with a clean cache.

Gonna have to look at load times!

Wow and wow! This is exactly what I meant, and even more. What a great working plugin is sidebarTabs! Thanks kdawes01!!

Indeed the other plugin wasn't working with me either, didn't have any tabs showing like described. This plugin works like a charm, fast, and loads of options, all I need any way!

Thanks again for the tip!
