Genesis Tabs 0.9 Beta Plugin Now Available

We are very proud to announce that the Genesis Tabs plugin we’ve built is now available.

A few of our child themes, such as Magazine and News, were using the tabs feature, which is loaded via the child theme (and makes universal updating quite difficult.) The updated Magazine theme no longer has this built in, and is ready to go with Genesis Tabs. The News theme will be updated soon.

Genesis Tabs and Portability

We’ve been asked many times how to take the tabs from one of those themes and place it into another theme – which was somewhat tedious because of the steps involved. So we decided to create a plugin that can be used easily across any theme, and would have auto-updates enabled since we’re hosting it at WordPress.org.

The Genesis Tabs plugin is easily added to any theme because it is now added via a widget. This means you can place it at the top of the Lifestyle theme where the welcome text is, for example.

We’re releasing the plugin in beta right now, so that folks can do some initial testing, and provide feedback on usability and feature requests.
