Tabs Layout

The Tab Layout clearly organizes top categories for subject-specific browsing. Within each tab, find related articles and sub-categories.

Key Features
  1. Top categories are presented as tabs.
  2. Each tab page follows a structure similar to the Basic layout.

Note: To display your Knowledge Base on your web page, make sure the page includes the KB shortcode as explained in this article.

Tabs Are Top Categories

Top Categories are represented as tabs. Each tab can be a product, service, or area of your topic. Top Categories cannot have any articles. They can only contain sub-categories shown within each tab.

This layout is ideal for larger knowledge bases that require tabs to separate different products.

We use it on our other documentation page to distinguish between our add-ons and the core free plugin. You can see a live example of the Knowledge Base here

Here are live examples:

  1. Demo 3
  2. Demo 4

In some screenshots, the search box is our Pro add-on, Advanced Search.

The Tabs Layout will only display up to six tabs due to the article width limitation. Even if you have more than six top categories, the layout will change from tabs to a drop down. The drop down can handle a large number of top Categories.

The red number show Tabs being used.

Purple numbers show the drop down used.
