"Tabs & Sliders" is the 'module' adaptation of the highly popular "Tabs & Sliders [for articles]" plugin created by JoomlaWorks. Using this module, you can display other modules in tabs and/or sliders, saving important "real estate" on your template. The tabs emulate a multi-pane structure, while the sliders emulate an accordion-like structure, inside a single block!
This module is ideal for portal websites, where much content needs to be gathered in as less blocks as possible. We even suggest you combine it with other great extensions from JoomlaWorks like the popular K2 or the much smaller (but very flexible) Ultimate Content Display (aka UCD), a "super content retrieval" module that displays Joomla! articles in 3 different ways (unordered list, ajax cross-fader or jQuery-based cross-fader/slider).
"Tabs & Sliders" has been developed with ease of use and styling flexibility in mind! It's the kind of module you "set and forget", cause it simply works!
Download the module from our homepage. Install it like any module. Navigate to the Module Manager in the Joomla! backend, edit the module's parameters, select on the right the module position for which you want all its modules to be shown in tabs or sliders and then publish the "Tabs & Sliders" module.

### MVC TEMPLATING ###
Version 2 is a completely re-written module, now fully compatible with MVC templating. There are 2 distinct layouts: one for "tabs" and one for "sliders".
If you want to show your support please rate and/or comment on the module, here, at the official Joomla! Extensions Directory. Your feedback is very important!
Enjoy one more fine release from the folks at JoomlaWorks!
Also, the message boards on the developer site are not well monitored by the developers. Several people have been requesting a way to have the first tab open when the page loads, but a proper solution has yet to be posted. There is one detailed response to the question, but it doesn't seem to work with the latest version of T&S.
