Usage - Plone
Open any Kupu editable content.
Write a tab name and choose “Tab” as its style from Kupu style drop down.
All text after Tab until the next Tab section or the end will be placed inside a tab container. Tab’ed text will be placed inside a tab container.
You can choose which tab is open by default with Tab (open by default) style.
There is two example style files: kuputabs.css.dtml for any Plone theme (variable colors) and kuputabs2.css which is more generic one.
Usage - Generic HTML
Create a container DIV for your content. Usually this is #content or similar and already provided your CMS/blog/whatever.
Add class “kuputab-tab-definer” for <h2> elements you want to be tabs. Add class “kuputab-tab-definer-default” for the tab which is open by default.
Include kuputabs.js on your page. Include kuputabs-alternative.css stylesheet or create your own.
Under the hood
There is an important distinction with two kind of CSS classes
- kuputab-tab-definer is h2 element which marks the beginning of the tab
- all content until the end of kuputab-tab-definer parent element or next kuputab-tab-definer goes to this tab
- kuputab-tab-definer content is mutated to kuputab-tab-container which is placed at the bottom of kuputab-tab-definer container element
document.designMode attribute is used to determine whether the visitor views the page or is it under WYSIWYG editor.
