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

    Under Moodle 3.2 the duplication function is not working.

    Just wondering if anybody used this in v3.3 and whether anybody had success with it on mobile? Alternatively - best other solution for tabbed content pages?

    TB, I am not claiming this is the 'best' solution. I am using BS4 tabs with Boost. https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=344651
    I have got a single button using Snippets to insert the code.
    There is one gotcha. If I paste in any unformatted code (eg like a link) then atto destroys the code. https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-58084
    If you want I can describe my workflow as it is in the moment.
    I think that responsive tabs inside a section is a good way to solve the scroll of death, and it is 'normal' internet type navigation and the users in our Moodle all work really well.

    PS: to anybody watching here. These guys have done a good job of this plugin. But as I posted above, they probably have gone on.
    https://oohoo.biz/index.php/en/plug-ins/display/tab-topics-course-format/ latest release 2013

    Is this plugin a possible candidate for plugin adoption and someone else to volunteer to either fork or adopt the plugin?
    Especially with the power of BS4 coming into the frame with Boost.
    Boost + Fordson [or another theme . . .] + a tabs solution would be a powerful combination.

    Musing over.

    Thanks Derek - will take a bit of time (over hols) to get up to catch up and hopefully will try stuff out in a little while (returning to dev after a long absence)

    Derek I'd be very interested in knowing more about your workflow for creating BS4 tabs in boost. I'm talking to an administrator about building a course that would ideally utilise a 4-tab temlate format for each of 50+ pages. It would be great to have very simple instructions lined up (treat me as complete novice) before I request any plugns or themes installed....

    Help-text is missing for this plugin. Any plans to update this ?

    Crashing in a Fordson theme overwriting a gray background.
  • Thu, May 31, 2018, 2:08 AM

    I found the same issue as Polaris while testing Moodle 3.5.
    I am using Boost theme.

    The gray background is caused by the css rule: .row {background-color #eee}
    Changing the line to .row {background-color #fff} solved the issue for me.
    Though the row has a purpose to see which chapter you are in.

    Might be an idea for further development / release to Moodle version 3.5 to fix this CSS line in a way it keeps it's function without causing the grey background lines.

    How would I go about changing the color of the tabs? I've tried editing a colors in a few different options, but no luck.

    I'm having issues with version 3.0.0 in Moodle 3.7. None of the tabs are showing any text even though it's in the tab settings. I down graded to 2.4.1 and seems to be working fine.

    Thanks for this plugin - It's really good.
    Is there a way to add an activity or resource directly to a tab - so in each tab will have a different activity or resource related to this tab?
  • Thu, Sep 24, 2020, 3:58 PM
    Also - maybe allow setting Activity completion per tab?
