The tab display module allows you to setup your information in a tabbed format. This helps to clean up your course by combining several resources into Tabs.

Tab Display is a resource module used to display course information such as notes, readings, biography etc, in a tab structure per chapter/module within a course.

Websites can also be embedded into the tabs. Using Moodle auto-linking, helps create links to other activities or resources.

New features:

  • A general description can be added above the tabs
  • PDF embedded functionality. If you put a link with a PDF file on the content of a tab (without any text around), the PDF file will be displayed in an iFrame

    Hi Nyree

    Innocent mistake. Has happened to me before. The tab display is not a block. It's an activity module and therefore must be installed in the mod folder and not the blocks folder.

    OK thanks Patrick, now installed in Mod folder and working (but the README file needs updating)!

    Installation
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    1. Rename the folder to 'tab'
    2. Copy the folder tab to moodle/blocks
    3. Install the plugin

    Hi Nyree,
    I corrected the Readme file with "mod".
    Thanks for your comment!

    It would be useful to be able to attach files at each available tab..

    Hi Andreas

    Do you mean that when you click on the tab, it opens a word file or other file type.

    Hi,

    This is probably a Youtube restriction.

    You have 2 solutions:
    - Replace your URL in the embed field to http://www.youtube.com/embed/xxxxxxxxxxxxx
    - Use the Moodle Media filter to automatically replace the URL by the player. Just put your link in a link tag, Moodle will do the rest

    I love this plug in and have been recommending it to lecturers. Is there a way to add a link from the bottom of one tab to the top of the next? Our students are unused to tabbed displays in the CMS, and we'd liek to spoon-feed them the transition.

    Hi,

    This is used extensively across our installation and is a superb plugin. Any plans/eta for a 2.6 version?

    Thanks,

    How do I delete a tab I don't want?

    Nevermind. I figured it out! Just delete the contents of the tab you don't want!

    This seems to work fine when testing in Moodle 2.6 . However we would really appreciate confirmation from the authors on its suitability in 2.6 before we install it on our production Moodle site.

    I use your tab display all the time, but I got tired of seeing the "deprecated error" with debugger running, so I changed three code lines as follows:

    In mod/tab/view.php
    line 53
    //$context = get_context_instance(CONTEXT_MODULE, $cm->id); old line becomes:
    $context = context_module::instance($cm->id);
    line 54
    //$coursecontext = get_context_instance(CONTEXT_COURSE, $course->id); old line becomes:
    $context = context_course::instance($course->id);

    Then in mod/tab.lib.php
    line 186
    //$context = get_context_instance(CONTEXT_MODULE, $cmid) -- old line, becomes:
    $context = context_module::instance($cmid);

    I have two questions about this: 1) Is this alright to do, no problems? And 2) if it is OK, then couldn't it be used in an update release of your TAB module?
