ActiveTabs is an script modification which adds a third alternative tab system.

Installation

Add this JavaScript on your wiki:

Site-wide
MediaWiki:Common.js
importArticles({
    type: "script",
    articles: [
        "w:c:dev:MediaWiki:ActiveTabs/code.js"
    ]
});
importArticles — Best Practices for installing JavaScript on Fandom
The importArticles statement is designed to combine multiple HTTP requests into a single data transfer, allowing multiple scripts to load and execute faster. If you've been installing several different scripts, your JavaScript file has probably accumulated unnecessary import statements. Click "Expand" to learn how to efficiently batch import scripts to speed up performance and make your code look cleaner. One other approach is by using the MediaWiki:ImportJS.
If your JavaScript file has several lines of code that say importScript, importScriptPage, or importArticles, you may be able to combine them! By batch importing a collection of scripts with a single import, your JavaScript code will load faster and look cleaner. Consider the example below. On the left is an example of what your JavaScript file might currently look like. On the right is how you could improve that code.
Multiple imports — messy and slow One import — clean and efficient
importScriptPage('AjaxRC/code.js','dev');
 
importScript('MediaWiki:localScript.js');
 
importArticle({
  type: 'script',
  article: 'u:dev:FloatingToc/code.js'
});
 
importScriptPage('page1.js', 'wikiname');
 
importScriptPage('page2.js', 'wikiname');
importArticles({
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
        'u:dev:AjaxRC/code.js',
        'MediaWiki:localScript.js',
        'u:dev:FloatingToc/code.js',
        'u:wikiname:page1.js',
        'u:wikiname:page2.js'
    ]
});
Note: In this example, pay close attention to the placement of commas and other punctuation. For people who aren't familiar with programming (and even those who are!), a common mistake when writing code is to accidentally delete, forget, or misplace critical symbols like commas or quotation marks. This can cause a syntax error that breaks the code. Carefully follow the convention shown here when using importArticles.
But there's much more to importArticles than just this! For more examples and advanced usage, see the help page at Help:Including additional JavaScript and CSS.


Usage

Add this HTML on an article:

<div class="tabBox GlobalModule" style="padding:10px"><div class="tabTabs" style="text-align:center;border-bottom:1px solid black;margin-top:-10px"><span class="tabTitle active" id="tab-1">TAB1</span><span class="tabTitle" id="tab-2">Tab2</span><span class="tabTitle" id="tab-3">Tab3</span><span class="tabTitle" id="tab-4">Tab4</span><span class="tabTitle" id="tab-5">Tab5</span><span class="tabTitle" id="tab-6">Tab6</span><span class="tabTitle" id="tab-7">Tab7</span><span class="tabTitle" id="tab-8">Tab8</span><span class="tabTitle" id="tab-9">Tab9</span><span class="tabTitle" id="tab-10">Tab10</span>
</div>
<div class="tabContent" id="tab-1-content">Tab 1 Content</div><div class="tabContent" id="tab-2-content" style="display:none">Tab 2 Content</div><div class="tabContent" id="tab-3-content" style="display:none">Tab 3 Content</div><div class="tabContent" id="tab-4-content" style="display:none">Tab 4 Content</div><div class="tabContent" id="tab-5-content" style="display:none">Tab 5 Content</div><div class="tabContent" id="tab-6-content" style="display:none">Tab 6 Content</div><div class="tabContent" id="tab-7-content" style="display:none">Tab 7 Content</div><div class="tabContent" id="tab-8-content" style="display:none">Tab 8 Content</div><div class="tabContent" id="tab-9-content" style="display:none">Tab 9 Content</div><div class="tabContent" id="tab-10-content" style="display:none">Tab 10 Content</div>
</div>
Source Mode — The safe way to edit
Source mode is designed to handle complex html codes on an article, allowing to reduce the amount of unwanted code that is sometimes automatically added. Source mode is the best way to edit if you are using templates, or html tags such as <span>, <p>, and <div>. Click "Expand" to learn how to you can switch to this mode and make your code look cleaner.

Location Source

Here are some useful tips:

  • When copy or pasting content, always use source mode!
  • When you see Double Brackets Icon in the edit area of visual mode, it refers to a template, or content with code that is not supported or too complex for the visual editor to handle. In source mode you will see this content in full.
  • When you see Comment Icon in the edit area of visual mode, it refers to a comment. In source mode, you will see this content as <!-- -->.
  • MediaWiki has a special language called wikitext to make editing more easy. This language is supported in visual mode and will not break as easily as html.
  • Some html tags like <u> or <s> are supported in visual mode.
  • You can also enter source mode when creating or replying to threads in a forum, or when using a message wall by clicking Comment Source Modus underneath the edit area.
  • You can edit templates only in source mode.
  • Some html tags are not supported on the source mode such as <input>, <iframe>. These codes will only work on mediaWiki pages when using verbatim to import them on your page.


Template

For an easy usage you should copy/pass the following templates into your wikia:

Limitations

  • Like any other script the tabs will not work on the mobile skin and will display all the content on default.
  • Currently not everything can be fully adjust by css.
