Latest News, Newsflash, Articles Tabs, News Display, Article Elements

There are two main layouts available - you can use tabs or accordion view.

DJ Tabs is a powerful Joomla tabs and accordion extension with WCAG 2.0/Section 508 support purposed for flexibly displaying different content types, allowing you to set almost every aspect of the look, feel and content and way it is displayed.

However, there is also a combined way possible. If you are displaying articles from a defined category - the accordion list of articles will be shown on the tab!

Going further to the customization, you can add the custom icon (font awesome) to each tab, and customize the whole tabs or accordion view by using the theme customizer or one of the 12 predefined themes!

Each of them can be easily configured and offers different options so that you can set everything depending on your needs.

Many other useful features can come to your mind as a need once you start using any tabs extension.For example, you can create an URL that will point directly to the tab of your choice. You can set the starting tab and decide which tab will be opened first when the webpage is opened.

Read more below to learn more about them.

What kind of content can be displayed in tabs or accordion?
The possibilities are huge - from the single article through articles from a specific category to modules.
There are exactly six types of items that can be used:
- Module position - you can display any Joomla module of your choice in the tab or accordion. This is a compelling feature. Imagine you can display the latest news module in one tab, popular articles in the second tab. This way, you can create a nice sidebar widget for your website with the most interesting content. The possibilities are endless.
- Single Joomla article - choose any Joomla article that will be displayed in the tab or accordion from now. You have a wide range of possibilities to decide how the article will look in the tab. Some of the features you can set are:
-- show/hide the date and decide on its position
-- show/hide or link the title
-- Limit characters of the title so rest will be cut out
-- Control the image’s behavior by setting options to show/hide it, choose its position (left/right/center), make the image linked, or set its dimensions by providing width and height
-- Intensive settings of the description (the content of the article displayed in the tab) by setting if it should be displayed in full (HTML) or just the content that can be limited by providing the characters limit. Make the content linked, display the category name above the content, make it linked, or show/hide the article's author. You can also manage to display the “read more” button and even change its text to your own right in the tab settings if you want to make it special for some reason.
- Articles category - articles from selected category will be pulled and displayed in accordion layout inside the tab!
- Video link - display videos from Youtube or Vimeo by simply pasting the URL
- K2 single item - you can display the content of the selected K2 item (when K2 is installed)
- K2 category - you can display the content of the chosen K2 category (when K2 is installed) - this works in the same way as when pulling articles from the Joomla category.
- Custom Text/ HTML item

Items can be grouped into categories. You can set an unlimited number of groups and items. Each instance of DJ-Tabs (so any number of DJ-Tabs modules or DJ-Tabs menu items) can display items from the different groups!

Another fantastic feature of this tabs Joomla extension is the possibility of creating an own theme by using a simple editor (creator, theme builder) or use one of 12 predefined, included themes.

What’s more in DJ Tabs?

  • DJ Tabs comes with a huge flexibility - there are many parameters to set if you want to go deeper into the settings. For example, you can choose whether the content in tabs should include images or not.
  • set the limit of characters for the title.
  • Another exciting option - you can decide whether the added video should be paused/started automatically while switching tabs.
  • You can also set the tabs animation speed,
  • select a type of tabs' trigger to open them on click or mouseover
  • set articles' ordering,
  • create article's images thumbnails
  • and much more!

Like every extension we provide, DJ Tabs offers an extended documentation section where you can learn:
- How to make a DJ Tabs installation
- Discover tabs component options
- How to create tabs groups
- See available options for an item
- The full list of options available in the configuration of the tabs
- How to displays Tabs or Accordions on your website in 3 ways.

Tabs Functionalities and Management

In the component’s settings, you can easily browse the most important features you want to reach.
Jump quickly to:
- Items (particular tabs) and make adjustments to them. For each item, you can set things like:
- Setting the group it is assigned to (you can create an unlimited amount of “groups,” which works like categories or sets for your tabs).
- Choose one of 6 types of the tab content (Joomla article, list of articles from Joomla category displayed in accordion layout inside the tab, module position to display any Joomla module assigned to this position inside the tab, publish a video from Youtube or Vimeo by simply pasting the URL and K2 items or list of the items from selected category in the same way you would use Joomla articles)
- Quick add of the new item
- Groups - the place where you create your groups (you can also call the categories or sets). You can create or edit the groups by naming them. Later you assign the items to the groups. Imagine a group as a list of the particular tabs.
- Quick add to the new group
- Themes - here, you can see the list of predefined styles (16 of them) or create yours. Creating a new theme is a great way to make the tabs fit into your website or event part of your website. Considering that you can assign a different theme/style to each of the tabs' instances, by using this one extension, you can create unlimited visual variants of tabs to fit any page on your website.

It works and it looks great and it's constantly evolving.
It is just perfect
Ease of use
It was great for my purpose (FAQ).
I also bought DJ-Classifieds, DJ-Messages and DJ-Reviews from them.
I like that it's a team and not an individual.
They use a ticket system and you will get an answer after one day at the latest.
Lots of information on the website.
Many examples and tips from support.
Value for money
It is OK, I was surprised that there are so few reviews.
Tip: Take a look at their other website, you can get DJ-Tabs with a Template.
I used this to: I was looking for an accordion solution, for the representation of my FAQ.
I found it here!!!
