Hmm... the link you gave was invalid. Could you try to get the actual link?

From the demo page:

Fetch and display an external page (from the same domain) inside a container when a tab is clicked on.

Basically it will help me, if i show the page from the external domain, it would be hosted on my another site, I need to fetch the details and display within the TAB, the example of Google was jus a consideration.

would there be a script, for me to display the external value within a TAB, i jus need to load the external page only for one tab, remaining 2 tabs would be the internal pages, which i would fetch and display

kindly guide me in this factor

This might be able to be done with PHP if your server where the tab script is located has it and has it configured to allow this.

This thread:


discusses how this can be done where allowed, especially in the later posts (starting around post 14 in that thread). Once you get a local PHP page displaying the content from another domain, if as I say, it is allowed, then that page might be able to be loaded into the tab.
