Would it be possible to bold or use the small caps variant on the tab titles without effecting the content in the tabs? MilitiaV 04:02, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

I don't see why not: this CSS may do the job:
.yui-content, .yui-navset .yui-nav li.selected
  font-variant: small-caps;

Not properly working. Edit

Hello! Tabview is not working on Scrubs Wiki. Take a look under "Character History": --Ohmyn0 (talk) 01:08, March 20, 2010 (UTC)

  • Fixed it. Had to replace the CSS. --Ohmyn0 (talk) 19:37, March 26, 2010 (UTC)

"recursive use" does not work Edit

It does not work when you include a page with tabview inside, even when you have set different id's.
The outer-most tabview contents get displayed but te contents of the included tabview(s) is not.
This would be really handy for me...
Please fix soon™ :)

Why does this feature no longer work properly? Edit

This feature made it convenient to view an additional page without making the article overly long. I only noticed it stopped work around November 2011, so it was likely earlier. I thought it was a glitch, but it has continued with no word as to why it stopped work and/or was removed.

Are there any alternatives? -- Bunai82 (talk) 16:26, December 28, 2011 (UTC)

Status Edit

Is this feature dead?? I would find it very useful.

I got it working by adding the css to both the Wikia and Common CSS pages! hope this helps!

Table of Contents Bug Edit

I noticed that while using this function, the table of contents inside the tabs can no longer be collapsed. It's is still possible to hide/show the TOC when viewing the content page itself, but not on the page with the tabview section. // TenhGrey (talk) 19:45, July 19, 2013 (UTC)

Missing link Edit

Link on source code is no available. Need to know the names of the classes for creating js. Hedgeg (talk) 20:22, November 9, 2014 (UTC)

Thread:755551 = the solution to the problem. link updated. Hedgeg (talk) 08:38, November 12, 2014 (UTC)

Subtabs problems Edit

I am attempting to do subtabs on my main subject page but they aren't working. Here is the page I'm referencing. I would like to do this on multiple pages in my wikia site. Can this be fixed? If needed, the subpages can be found in the category page DarienLeonhart (talk) 18:30, March 5, 2015 (UTC)

Never mind. I figured out how to nest pages under tabs giving the appearance of subtabs. I did this still using tabview coding, not tabber which I find a bit annoying how it puts a border around the whole thing. Each nested page needs to have a tabview id. So inside the <>, you would type for example tabview id="Leonhart"... each id needs to be different than the other ids of the pages that will be nested on the same page. So if it helps, just make the id the subpage name. For example, a subpage named Leonhart/Images... the tabview id I would choose is Images. lowercase or capital letters does not matter.

New problemEdit

I currently have it set up for "editable-tabs vde" which is supposed to show v·d·e (view discuss edit) on each tab. But now, it's not doing that anymore. And I am sure no changes were made to the source code for tabview on my wikia site.
DarienLeonhart (talk) 03:31, June 13, 2015 (UTC)

Where is it not working? I checked out this page and it looks fine to me. What browser/OS version are you running so I can debug.
I did recently make an update to the script, so that may be whats causing problems. Have you tried doing a quick refresh of your cache?
jgjake2  talk  contr 03:43, June 13, 2015 (UTC)
Firefox 38.0.5, Windows 8.1 Professional if that matters. I've only done normal page reloads/refreshes. I have not attempted Ctrl+Shift+R or Ctrl+F5 and I haven't attempted purges. normal reloads work but only temporarily.

Max number of tabs?Edit

Is there a cap on the number of tabs?   I have a page I'm trying to get 8 tabs on, and there doesn't seem to be real-estate concerns, but only 6 are showing

DocSharpe (talk) 17:03, July 12, 2015 (UTC)

I have had a lot more than six tabs. What page are you attempting this on? So that I can take a look at your coding of that page.
DarienLeonhart (talk) 17:09, July 12, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks.   After your confirmation that it wasn't a technical limit, I started scrutinzing my code...typos on my part.

Magic words as page names Edit

It should be noted that Magic Words won't work as page names, which need to be written in plain text.

For instance, suppose a tabview will be added to Foo and Foo/bar will be transcluded. Something like {{PAGENAME}}/bar|My bar page won't even render the viwer, Foo/bar|My bar page should be the correct syntaxis.

I would add this to the Help page but I'm not quite sure if this is an intended behavior or a bug. Ab  disc  07:51, November 5, 2015 (UTC)

I'd like to bump this for a fix. I'm trying to implement the following but it simply fails to find anything.

<tabview> {{BASEPAGENAME}}/Gameplay|Gameplay {{BASEPAGENAME}}/Background|Background {{BASEPAGENAME}}/Quotes|Quotes {{BASEPAGENAME}}/Competitive|Competitive {{BASEPAGENAME}}/Development|Development {{BASEPAGENAME}}/Skins|Skins {{BASEPAGENAME}}/Trivia|Trivia </tabview> Emptylord (talk) 23:07, March 10, 2016 (UTC)

Send your report into Special:Contact/bug for a speedier response. --Icier 23:11, March 10, 2016 (UTC)
Simple solution: Use the Tag extension
The problem is that XML based extensions do not expand templates/replace magic words before being processed. Therefore you must use the "Tag" extension to generate a tabview element (don't forget to escape pipes using {{!}} ).
Have Fun,

Tab view does not workEdit

Here is the page which I tried it on. It keeps loading and displays the tabs below in a list.

Can anyone please help? Do I have to add something to MediaWiki:Common.css?
PapíDimmi (talk) 20:13, July 3, 2016 (UTC)

  • Well I can tell you that the script is going F***ing nuts and generating a bunch of excess tab elements. I would debug further, but I have to get ready for work and it keeps crashing my tab after a few minutes. I will look into it more later.

    Do the pages in the tabview themselves have tabview elements?

Transclusion specific wikicode Edit

Can you add a feature so if I put wiki code in between <includeonly>...</includeonly> tags it only shows up on the page with tabview?FortressMaximus #WeLoveLegends (Talk) 01:39, September 5, 2017 (UTC)

Math tags not renderedEdit

Mathematical formulas that exists in the tabbed pages are rendered correctly when these pages open on their own but when open from the tabs of tabview the math code is exposed and not rendered.

Panos (talk) 10:28, July 4, 2019 (UTC)

Please add a recursion warning Edit

Please add a note that recursion will cause an infinite loop. For example, if this code is added to a page named "Foo" or "Bar", then the tab will never load.
