I want to basically override the normal display of article, to include two tabs in that. One tab will be "Read Article", which when clicks loads the article page. Others tab will be "About the Author", which when clicks loads the author page.

So ultimately when I go to any article page, there will be two tabs, "Read Aricle" (selected by default), and "About the author".

Please suggest how can I achieve this. I have tried overriding node display by using Panels, but I am not able to add links or display author information in another tab.

-- Thanks for your time.


There is Author Pane

Author Pane is a block of information about a given user, like those typically found on a forum post, but can be used in other places as well. From core, it collects the user picture, name, join date, online status, contact link, and profile information. In addition, any module or theme can feed it more information via the preprocess system. All of this information is then gathered and displayed using a template file.

For the tabbed view you cold try Quick Tabs

The Quick Tabs module allows you to create blocks of tabbed content, specifically views, blocks, nodes* and other quicktabs*.

  • It just display normal block with some data. Actually I have override display of author page too, and I want to load that page and not custom block. -- Thanks Jan 22 '13 at 6:01
