Tabs module

Tabs modules provide a compact display of many related assets. A tab module contains a title, description, and individual tabs. Each tab typically contains modules, each with its own title, description, and assets.

This topic describes how to create a shared tabs module that you can use in multiple assets. If you want to create a one-off tabs module, see Creating a one-off module.

To create a tab module:

  1. In the header, click add.
  2. From the Create list, select Tabs Module.
  3. Using the following table as a reference, complete the fields as needed.
  4. Complete your site's workflow and publish the tabs module.

  2. In the form for configuring a tab, enter an Internal Name and Title.
  3. Click Add Module.
  4. In the module picker, select one of the available modules, and configure it as required.
    You can use the module picker's search field to quickly find a specific module or style. For details, see Searching for shared modules in the module picker.
