About the Tab element
Tabs on websites were originally designed to resemble physical tabs on paper file folders. They provide an organized way to display and access information within a fixed section of the screen. With GemPages, you can easily create tabs on your webpage using the Tabs element.
Follow these steps to add the Tab element to your page:
Step 1: From the GemPages Dashboard, open a template to edit. You can quickly find the Tab element on the left sidebar of the Editor, under the Interactive section. Drag & drop the element to any position you prefer.
Step 2: Drop the other elements such as Heading, Text block, Image, etc. inside the tab to create the content layout you wish.
Clicking on the Tab element, the configuration will be available on the left sidebar, which will be covered in the following sections.
