I've constructed a slider which activates when a href is clicked by the user.  It slides in from the bottom of the page with slight animation.
I need to get a tab system working within this slider.  So far i've had no luck.

Interestingly the tabs will work outside of the slider but as soon as I place the tabs inside the slider div, they won't work.

Please take a look at the url i provided for a (kind of) working sample - you'll see what i want to achieve:

Ill attach code snippets.
