2J Tabs proves to me, imho, that it is worth paying for the product.

Not only is 2J Tabs a much more robust and flexible product than the free ones out there but the developer(s)/support team really do their best to help with issues. Even when they are your own (ignorant) doing.

I am sooo happy that I came acros this!

Just wanted to take a minute, i was extensively searching for the optimal tabbed component or module to meet my needs. I found this one to meet and exceed all! Easy to install and work with once you read the docs and understand how the program works. Great value for the price, I was adding the Arabic language to one of my sites, and needed to flip from LTR to RTL page format. Dave quickly responded to my ticket and spent the time researching what needed to be done, and quickly fixed my problem.

Great component, great support!

I am surprised that someone says its not worth being a paid product. I have used plenty of free tabs and even the YooCarousel etc.

This product is innovative and second to none. I strongly recommend this product. Love the way the styles can be changed easily and different approaches of showing tabs on the site can be achieved.
I also got quick support for my questions.

In the past week I have tested at least 10 module sliders, tabs in content areas and such. In my research two things happened. I found that two many Java scripts on one page usually means that most or none of them might run. I also found that Many tabs in content have one tool or another, but none had the user set that I found in this one component/plugin.

PROS: It works!
Although that should be enough, it came with more styles than any that I tested.
It had more controls beyond needed to change the CSS to make the layout look like my site.
Great Support! Fast answers and relatively simple to get information concerning product from site. Explanations were solid, thanks.

CONS: It costs money. But this is only a CON in the sense that there may be someone who is willing to use 4 or 5 tools to get what this has in one.
Having really noticed anymore downsides yet. Have been using for 5 days now.


To me it was worth the price. Beyond funky slider and Gavick Tab Module, this tool will get plenty of use in my articles because the component feature in it much like the Gavick Tool Module means that I will have lots of articles that I use the Tab component to keep track of. At first this seems like a small thing when you get something free. However,when you discover you have 100 articles and tabbed content in many of them, you realize that organization is important.

Kudos guys.

I believe I was one of the first to buy this extension and am so glad I did.
The developer emailed me to thank me for my purchase personally, and then asked for my feedback.

I provided this feedback as I could do with a little tweak in how 2JTabs worked for my site.
Not only did the developer help me to get this working as I wanted, but he also released an update with the tweaks I had asked for built in.

This is the ultimate tab component, module and plugin available for Joomla!
Its awesome just how much you can do with it, and also the styles you get as standard.
Beats other tab modules hands down, worth every penny in my opinion, and I dont say that very often about extensions that cost money when its for an open source project.

Love it!

I used some free solution before and had trouble with the installation and use of it. That's why I decided to give this extension a try, after the friendly staff helped me to install everything, the extension was up and running smoothly! My website looks a lot better now! Thanks!

nice features, but imo the module is not worthy for being paid. Tabs and Slides in Content does nearly the same for free, also for both 1.5 and 1.0
Owner's reply

Thank you for your feedback, let me compare for you, to show difference between Tabs and Slides and 2JTabs (to make you able to decide if it’s worth to be paid). My guess that you didn’t buy our product and wasn’t able to compare them to see difference.

2J Tabs have 4 ways of usage on the front end (btw Tabs and Slider can be used only one way):
* using regular module you can insert tabs with content articles from joomla content category or section;
* using plugin tag which you will be able setup in component , and after that insert to the content article as tabbed content section. So you can insert tabs with articles from joomla content category or section;
* using plugin tags to split one content article to the tabbed section;
* direct link to the component;

When you use 2JTabs with mambot tags (namely insert tabs instances into content articles) you able to specify personal style for every instance of the 2JTabs (not sure that you will be able to do something like this with Tabs and Slider);

2JTabs have 21 pre-installed skins and ability to make your custom skins based on preinstalled custom style , using CSS editor (in joomla admin section / 2JTabs component);

2J Tabs have few navigation modes:
* using regular tab navigation buttons (on top or bottom of the tabs block);
* using auto rotation mode for tabs changing process (with effects);

2JTabs have Slide and Fade effects, ability to align navigation buttons on left or right of the
top or bottom side of the tabs panel.

2JTabs can be navigate in automatic or manual mode. In second case tabs could be changed by click or by hover.

A lot of customization options make you able to manage every element of the 2JTabs front end interface, using diff. alignment , padding options.

And much more options, which you can see in our product details (against of 2 settings options of the Tabs and Sliders….)

I think it’s not fair to compare Tabs and Sliders (plugin with 2 settings options) with 2JTabs (component + module + plugin with more then 40 settings options!!!)

Great add-on to 2JTabs it’s FREE and FAST support , which help you to sort any kind of problems right away (we’ll help you in the case if you will have some kind of conflicts at your site between 2JTabs and another extension).

We’re ready to reply to any kind of questions related with our extensions right away, just let us to know !

So right now it’s up to you to decide worth this extension to be paid or not !
