Introducing the Tabs Widget

Following our recent release of the Accordion widget, we’re really pleased to announce our new Tabs widget. Tabs offer a great way to organise and structure content in a small amount of space. Perfect for listing your services, products, page sections or any other content that has a horizontal structure to it.

The Tabs widget is included in the Widgets Bundle plugin release version 1.11.0. SiteOrigin Widgets can be inserted into any page using SiteOrigin Page Builder or any of the other Page Builders that we support. You can also insert widgets into theme widget areas.

As always, this is a completely free addon. All you need to do is update your copy of Widgets Bundle, then navigate to PluginsSiteOrigin Widgets in your WordPress admin, search for and activate the Tabs widget.

If you need a hand getting started, please, see the Tabs widget documentation.

Extra Options for SiteOrigin Premium Users

SiteOrigin Premium adds awesome functionality and additional features across our range of plugins and themes. The Tabs addon in SiteOrigin Premium adds a host of extra settings and features. The two you might find most useful are:

Preset Designs

To make the most of the extra settings and save you time, the Presets setting lets you choose from four unique designs. All the designs use neutral colours making it easy to adapt to your website colour scheme.

Flat Preset Design

Wire Preset Design

Rounded 01 Preset Design

Rounded 02 Preset Design

View a demo of the preset tab designs.

Layout Builder

The free Tab widget lets you add standard TinyMCE text content, but in the premium addon, we’re giving you the power to create tab content using a layout field. This means you can fill your tabs with complex widgets and Page Builder style layouts (rows and columns).

If you aren’t a SiteOrigin Premium member yet, be sure to sign up. It’s a cost-effective way to build your sites faster and more professionally. We’re introducing more addons all the time, so the longer you’re a member, the more valuable it becomes.

    Very nice
    but why do you call “Rounded 01 Preset Design” with a small rounding for the same
    as the other one with larger rounding “Rounded 01 Preset Design”

    Do you know there is free plugin “Tabs Widget for Page Builder” by ProteusThemes with power to create tab content using a layout field?
    Therefore, the Premium is not so tempting.

      That’s a great option for users that would like to stick with free, thanks for sharing. In addition to creating new features to attract users to SiteOrigin Premium we’re also looking to continually add value for our existing subscribers :)

    When I tried this widget all the tabs stayed open. Usually on a tabbed page the existing open tab will close when you open a new tab. So only one tab is open for reading at a time. Is this something you can fix for us. I am a premium subscriber. Did I miss a setting or do something wrong.

      Hi Brian

      Thanks for reaching out. That sounds like an error. Please, reach out to us on email, [email protected]. Alex will assist as soon as possible. Please, include a link to the page so we can view the problem. If you don’t have a page with the tabs widget showing, please, create a demo page so we can see the issue in action.

      Thanks again :)
