Configuring the Tabs Styling

To set the button’s color or size in the tab slider, you’ll need edit the following options.


Navigation Button Size Sets the size of the icons or text that acts as navigation for your tab slider. You can use the slider or enter the number directly into the option.
Navigation Button Color Sets the color of your navigation button in the tab slider. A color panel will help you to easily choose your desired color.

Altering the Slide Sorting

There are two settings in the tab slider Settings pop-up that allow you to alter the slide sorting. By default, the Order and Orderby settings are set to Ascending and Date, therefore it sorts the older slides ahead of the newer slides.


Order  Sets the ascending or descending order of the Orderby parameter.
Order by Sorts the slides based on the selected parameter (date, menu order, title, …).

Adding an Entrance Animation

The Viewport Animation field in the settings pop-up allows you to hide the shortcode initially and make it visible with animation when you scroll through the browser.

You can read the Configuring a shortcode’s entrance animation article for further explanation.

Adding an Extra Class Name

The Extra Class Name field in the settings pop-up allows you to add an extra class name to the shortcode. It’s useful when you need to target the shortcode in a style sheet or JavaScript file.
