View Full Version : Embedding Multiple Ajax Tabs

1) Script Title:
Ajax Tabs Content

2) Script URL (on DD):

3) Describe problem: I would like to embed a second tab menu but not on the default page. Looking through the forums, I've seen a similar request but not an answer.

My main page has an ajax tab menu at the top with 8 tabs. The default tab does not have a tab menu but I would like the other 7 tabs to have one (tabs 2-8). Looking at the second tab, it looks like the embedded tab menu is working correctly but if you click on one of it's tabs, the page is loaded completely outside of the whole setup.

<li>Is the company private or public?</li>
<li>Information, especially financial information, for public companies is easier because they are required to file with the government.</li>
<li>Private companies are not required to provide their financial information to the public so their information is most likely not available.</li>
<li>Is the company an operating unit, i.e., a subsidiary, division, or affiliate, of a parent company?</li>
<li>For financial information about an operating unit you must look up the parent companies information.</li>

Nesting of Ajax tabs is possible, with some minor tweaks to the default script. Check the bottom of this thread for a modification: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=18508

I missed that thread - I always seem to have a hard time finding what I'm looking for when I search the forums. That works great. Thanks a lot.
