jQuery "Tabs Shortcode" For Blogger!

Tabs Shortcode for blogger

We have shared several Multi Tabs widget in the past but today we are sharing the shortcode for creating responsive tabs inside blogger posts, sidebars and comments. This new method will help you add shortcodes anywhere on your blog with a single line of code. You can add multiple Tabs widgets on a single Page with as many Tabbed panels as you want. Add anything inside the panels to organize content on your blog layout and make it look more professional. The tabs supports nested shortcodes, so you can also add the jQuery accordion shortcode inside it to provide the best possible user interface to your BlogSpot readers.


How Shortcode Tabs UI works?

A Tab is a graphical control element that allows multiple panels to be contained within a single window, where switching between the documents inside the panels is done using the tabs as a navigation. All shortcodes are responsive and fluid, they will auto adjust to Mobile devices screen size.

You can also add FontAwesome icons next to tab headlines to make it more meaningful. You can also nest other shortcode objects inside the tabbed panel. The screenshot below shows a Soundcloud shortcode nested inside an accordion and the accordion itself is nested inside the Tabs Shortcode which it self is added inside a sidebar HTML/JavaScript widget.

All this done with few sentences and not a code! Because a shortcode itself it not a code but a text which is processed as HTML. You can choose to add icons to tabs or not.

You can also add content inside tabs and embed it inside blogger threaded comments or classic comment form!

How to Create Responsive Tabs?

Creating Tabs using its shortcode is extremely easy. It follows almost a similar syntax as that of Accordion shortcode. You just need to paste the following shortcode where you want the Responsive Tabs to display:

Consider this code as TexT which you can insert anywhere like inside your blog posts, static pages, widgets and comments.


[content title="Tab 1"] INSERT CONTENT HERE [/content]

[content title="Tab 2"] INSERT CONTENT HERE [/content]

[content title="Tab 3"] INSERT CONTENT HERE [/content]



tabs without icons

  • The above shortcode will create three tabs where [content marks the start of a new panel
  • You can insert any HTML, text or even a new shortcode inside the content area represented by  INSERT CONTENT HERE
  • Title of tab is changed by replacing the text Tab 1,2,3 etc.
  • To create a new tab and panel you just need to add the following sub-shortcode above [/tab]

[content title="Title Of Tab"]INSERT CONTENT HERE[/content]

Add Icons Next To Tabs

If you wish to add FontAwesome icons next to the tab title then you just need to add the attribute icon=" " as shown below


[content title="Facebook" icon="fa-facebook"] INSERT CONTENT HERE [/content]

[content title="Google+" icon="fa-google-plus"] INSERT CONTENT HERE [/content]

[content title="Twitter" icon="fa-twitter"] INSERT CONTENT HERE [/content]
