JQuery Tabs

Hi,

I've implemented a JQuery Tab functionality using the following code:

 
$(document).ready(function() {
	
	// Tab Effect
	$("#news-tab .tab-content").hide(); //Hide all content
	$("#news-tab .tab-title ul li:first").addClass("active").show(); //Activate first tab
	$("#news-tab .tab-content:first").show(); //Show first tab content

	//On Click Event
	$("#news-tab .tab-title ul li").click(function() {
		$("#news-tab .tab-title ul li").removeClass("active"); //Remove any "active" class
		$(this).addClass("active"); //Add "active" class to selected tab
		$("#news-tab .tab-content").hide(); //Hide all tab content

		var activeTab = $(this).find("a").attr("href"); //Find the href attribute value to identify the active tab + content
		$(activeTab).fadeIn(); //Fade in the active ID content
		return false;
	});

Open in new window


However when I'm using a CMS it doesn't allow me to edit the individual tabs - can anyone recommend a way that when I access this page via the CMS, this function won't run and will display the tabs in a manner I can edit them. But will operate when I access the front end website.

Many thanks,

Webbo

If you mean that you have a webpage that when viewed by a user, has tabs containing content, but when viewed in an "edit" mode in the CMS, the editor needs to be able to modify the actual structure of the tabs, or do they need to be able to edit the content of each tab?

For any CMS' I've put together, I've used CKEditor for the main body of content, which operates as a WYSIWYG interface for editing content. However for complex pages you can edit the actual source, at which point you could edit/modify the actual tab structure.

Of course I could be totally misunderstanding what you are needing.

Alternatively you could easily build an admin interface which took advantage of the jQuery tabs methods for adding, editing, removing etc.

You will of course need to ensure that whatever backend you are using is able to save these changes to make sure they are permanent.

I hope that's helped in some way.
