Show more content in the sidebar in Oldschool (Hybrid) « Community

Welcome, guest!

Feel free to read the blog, browse for themes, or join the club.

The community forums are currently being phased out. At the end of February or early March 2012, you will no longer be able to post here. This is because the entire site is being restructured. Please use the main forums for discussions.

Show more content in the sidebar in Oldschool (Hybrid)

  1. I think it would be fantastic to show more content in the sidebar, with for instance a tabbox or a accordian.

    Justin think it might ruin the theme, but I think it would make the look more dynamic.

    What do you think?

  2. I agree.

  3. I have not looked at the theme or downloaded the hybrid theme yet, but I like the idea of having the option to use a tabbox in the sidebar though. i also like to make a second and third sidebar in the theme.

  4. Maybe I'll compromise with a plugin in the future, Thomas. I want to completely revamp what I've done with previous tab widgets though to allow for more customization.

    I'm not at all a fan of tabs in sidebar-type sections though. More than 90% of the time, it does nothing helpful for the site. Plus, just stuffing more stuff inside of tabs just means that you're adding loads more database queries.

  5. What I've decided to do is create a tabbed widgets plugin. I'll try to add styling for each of Hybrid's children once the plugin is released.

    I'd rather keep it separate like this because adding the code to individual themes starts getting messy after a while.

  6. Great stuff :-)

    Looking forward for this :-)

  7. I'm almost finished creating the tabs widget plugin (beta version). I still have some cleanup to do and I haven't even started creating styles for the themes yet. But, I'm working on it.

  8. Hybrid Tabs Beta 0.1

    I'm releasing this plugin tonight, so get ready if you're an exclusive member. I'll need some folks to help me test through the beta stage.

  9. Hybrid Tabs Widget released:

    This idea has been officially incorporated.

    So, everyone that likes tabs, thank Thomas. This was his idea.

  10. Great stuff, can't wait to play around with this one.

    So, everyone that likes tabs, thank Thomas. This was his idea.

    I'll redirect all thanks to Justin, because he coded it all. Great job Justin, and thanks for this. I hope that the community is excited about this as I am. :-)
