Hi,
I need to reuse the same bit of code numerous times, so i'm figuring plugins for jquery are probably the way to go. The examples though seem to be quite complex and I cant get my head around them.
Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
Here is the code I am going to use for the plugin, I just need to know how to modify it as a plugin:
<script type="text/javascript">
          $('.tabs').find('div:first').siblings('div').hide();
          $('.tabs > ul > li >a').click(function(e){
              container=$(this).parent().parent().parent();
              $(this).parent().addClass('selected').siblings().removeClass('selected');
              $('.'+$(this).attr('rel'),container).show().siblings('div').hide();//Show the div with the content in
              e.preventDefault();
          });
      </script>

Open in new window


Which will be used in conjunction with the following markup:

 <div class="tabs">
          <ul>
              <li><a href="#" rel="tab1">Tab1</a></li>
              <li><a href="#" rel="tab2">Tab2</a></li>
              <li><a href="#" rel="tab3">Tab3</a></li>
          </ul>
          <div class="tab1">Tab 1 content</div>
          <div class="tab2">Tab 2 content</div>
          <div class="tab3">Tab 3 content</div> 
      </div>

With my javascript I have attached, I need to change it to a plugin, so that I can just add a class or id of tabbed for example to an element and it will use my function above!

This is my code that I am trying to convert in to a plugin. It is for a special kind of tabs that I require. Thanks for your help.

i think you code is already in shape, just add this
<<# (function($){>>  in the beginning
and <<})(jQuery);  >> in the end
