Suffusion Theme Static Tabbed Sidebar allows you to control how many tabs to enable and display the different tabs according to the type of tab.

Last Updated: March 12, 2018

Latest News: I have updated the documentation below.

This sidebar setting is very handy if you want to display many tabs in a widget area. It can be displayed on the left or the right hand side, depending on your website layout.

Note: You need to have one sidebar enabled, either left or right side of your website for the tabs to display.

The following image shows you an example of how the tab bar looks on the front of the website. In the following image you can see the Five tabs, Archives, Categories, Links, Meta and Pages I selected for this tutorial.
