    I like your technique with the get_post_field and the whistle_content filter applied on it instead of using the_content. Very clever 🙂

    Justin, you are on such a roll these days, you deserve a wolf whistle!

    Very nice approach. I’d love to see this tied into the Content Blocks discussion for 3.9 – http://make.wordpress.org/ui/2013/09/04/ceux-sept-3-chat-notes-wireframes/ – as a way to make re-usable content which itself could include mixed media.

    Sounds awesome but did I get this right, its just tabs for content, not for use in a sidebar?

      Ah, let me add something to that: I’ve just spent a week searching for a plugin that lets me use other plugins in a tabbed widget. Still can’t find a good one. Do you maybe have something like that in the pipelines for non-hybrid based themes?

      It has a shortcode (actually a media button for inserting the shortcode). This will allow you to insert whistles into post content. It also has a widget, which will allow you to insert whistles in your sidebars.

      You can also insert other plugins into your whistle content, assuming those plugins have a shortcode. Even if they don’t, it’s typically trivial to create one. Essentially, you can add anything to the whistle content that you can add to post/page content.

        ah, ok, so I can only insert widgets into the “whistle widget” if they got a short code. I’m looking for generic stuff like latest posts, latest comments and the likes.

        Will check it out and see if my needed widgets have short codes.

        If not, do you have, by any chance, a link to an article of yours where you talk about creating short codes?

    very nice!
    What about vertical tabs and responsive behaviour – or is this up to the theme developer?
