Creating tabbed content

If you need to have a ton of content to be presented on single page it can be challenging so the reader doesn’t become overwhelmed. Dividing your content into a tabbed module is one possible solution It’s especially helpful if one section of content is going to be really long (tall) and the user may want to jump ahead to a different section. One way to do that would be by putting the content into tabs on a single page.

Some possible use cases are for product reviews which could be broken up into:¬†intro, review, and conclusion. Here’s a quick example – click on tabs!

{tab=Intro}
The product was designed by ACME in 2010. Steve Ive and Johnny Jobs collaborated on this brilliant design.

So how do you do this with WordPress? We ran across this plugin called¬†“WordPress Tabs Slides” and it works brilliantly. It’s Ajax driven so it’s almost instantaneous and the user doesn’t feel like they’re being taken onto another page. You use very simple shortcode to mark sections in your content within your post or page and you’re done.

Congrats and thanks to Abdul Ibad for coding a great plugin for the WordPress community.
