About

This extension adds a new plugin to the content element wizard that provides the user the possibility to define other content elements and pages as tab based content. Furthermore, you can define an auto-play mechanism with a custom interval to implement an auto-sliding effect.

Installation

  1. Install the extension with the extension manager

  2. Add the static template of the extension to your template of your root page, or your extension root templates

  3. Download and include the MooTools Core or JQuery (If your project already has MooTools or JQuery included, skip this step)

  4. Implement your custom css code and override the include configuration option in the constants of the very same template with the integration of the static template from df_tabs

Usage

Configuration

Fluid Renderer

If you want to use the new Fluid Renderer, very little configuration is necessary. Just overwrite the following in your TypoScript Configuration:

plugin.tx_dftabs_plugin1.renderer = Fluid

The output can be completely controlled from within the Fluid-Template (EXT:df_tabs/Resources/Private/Templates/Standard/Tabs.html). Just overwrite it to adjust it to your needs.

Please note that the Fluid Renderer does not come with preconfigured CSS or JavaScript. You have to add this on your own.

TypoScript Renderer (deprecated)

    tabTitle {
        wrap = <h4 class="###CLASSES###">|</h4>
    }

    # Wrap around all tab content elements
    tabContents {
        wrap = <div class="###CLASSES###" id="###ID###">|</div>
    }

    # Tab content element
    tabContent {
        wrap = <div class="###CLASSES###" id="###ID###">|</div>
    }

    # Wrap around all tab menu entries
    tabMenu {
        wrap = <ul class="###CLASSES###" id="###ID###">|</ul>
    }

    # Tab menu entry (###LINK### can also be used in combination with the linkField property)
    tabMenuEntry {
        wrap = <li id="###ID###" class="###CLASSES###"><a href="###LINK_ANCHOR###">|</a></li>

        # alternative wrap if you want to jump directly to the tab if the location hash changes
        # wrap = <li id="###ID###" class="###CLASSES###"><a href="###LINK_ANCHOR###" id="###LINK_ID###">|</a></li>
    }
