Adjust Scroll To Offset

Navigate to PluginsSiteOrigin WidgetsTabs: Settings to enable the Scroll Top setting. When opening a tab, the Scroll Top setting will scroll the user to the top of the tab. The scroll offset from the top of the page is 90px. The siteorigin_widgets_tabs_scrollto_offset filter can be used to adjust the offset.

add_filter( 'siteorigin_widgets_tabs_scrollto_offset', function( $offset ) {
	return 150;
} );

Google Analytics Event Tracking

Tracking tab clicks is possible using Google Analytics or the tracking software of your choice. To do so, you’ll need to insert and edit the following script to make this possible:


<script>
	jQuery( '.sow-tabs-panel' ).on( 'show', function() {
		if ( jQuery( this ).find( '> :hidden' ) ) {
			// Add Event Tracking here.
		}
	} );
</script>

Add your event tracking function below the comment // Add Event Tracking here.. Insert Headers and Footers plugin is one of the methods you could use to insert the above script.
