In your post you've linked to the supplement page for this script, not to the main page:


Perhaps if you were to review the information there and download the demo archive offered there and use it as a template, you would better understand how to use the script.

That said, currently with your page, the external files aren't on the server. Like:


is 404 Not Found.

There could also be other problems. But this much has to be fixed for it to even have a chance of working.

To see the tab layout as expected, you need the:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="ajaxtabs.css" />

tag in the head and to upload the ajaxtabs.css and other support file to the server.

As I say though, look over the main demo page for the script. I think it may clear up a lot of your questions.
