Section 3: Tabion jQuery HTML Structure.

This section should be read along with the example files also contained in the download package.

Simple Structure of Tabion jQuery:

<div class="tabion">

  <!-- Start Responsive Button -->
  <div class="responsive-tab">
    <span class="resbutton">
      <i class="icon-reorder"></i>
  <!-- End Responsive Button -->

  <!-- Start Tab Button Holder -->
  <div class="button-holder [buttonholder-style-classes]">

    <!-- Start a Sample Tab Button with Icon Image -->
    <div data-tabid="TAB-ID" class="tabbt [button-style-classes]">
      <span class="button-icon"><img src="image-link" alt="image-title" /></span>
      <span class="button-title">Tab Title</span>
    <!-- End a Sample Tab Button with Icon Image -->

	<!-- Start a Sample Tab Button with Icon Font -->
    <div data-tabid="TAB-ID" class="tabbt [button-style-classes]">
      <span class="button-icon"><i class="icon-home"></i></span></span>
      <span class="button-title">Tab Title</span>
    <!-- End a Sample Tab Button with Icon Font -->

  <!-- End Tab Button Holder -->

  <!-- Start Tab Content Holder -->
  <div class="content-holder [contentholder-style-classes]">

    <!-- Start a Sample Tab Content -->
	<div data-tabid="TAB-ID" data-animIn="ANIMATION-NAME" class="tabcontent">
	  // Add Content Here
	<!-- End a Sample Tab Content -->

  <!-- End Tab Content Holder -->


When a tab button is clicked, the plugin will check the same TAB-ID in the content holder.

If the plugin see a content block that has the TAB-ID in the content holder block it will show that content.

If the plugin does not see any content block has the same TAB-ID with the tab button, it will load a file has filename that is same as TAB-ID (e.g: TAB-ID.php or TAB-ID.html).

To make a default tab that will be displayed at the first load you just add a “tab-active” class into a tab button.


If you like to show a control bar with Next, Prev and Play/Pause buttons you can add the below code into the tab zone:

<!-- Start Tab Control -->
<div class="tab-control">

  <!-- Start Prev Tab -->
  <span class="tabctrl-prev light-text solid-darkblue hovershadow-blue">
    <i class="icon-backward"></i>
  <!-- End Prev Tab -->

  <!-- Start Auto Play -->
  <span class="tabctrl-play light-text solid-darkblue hovershadow-blue">
    <i class="icon-play"></i>
    <i class="icon-pause"></i>
  <!-- End Auto Play -->

  <!-- Start Next Tab -->
  <span class="tabctrl-next light-text solid-darkblue hovershadow-blue">
    <i class="icon-forward"></i>
  <!-- End Next Tab -->

<!-- End Tab Control -->
