Using d7.2. I'm looking to create this setup, possibly w/ JQuery (or something similar that would provide real time tabs w/o refreshing the page).

         Popular        Visits       Comments      Recent

Category 1

Category 2

Category 3

Category 4

So the user would click on one of the category tabs on the left side (vertical), and then they can sort w/ the links at the top w/ real-time refresh/results, no page refreshing or loading required.

I like the look of JQuery tabs- but want the best solution here. By best I mean easiest, lightest, and most compatible with most browsers.

I can setup various views to execute the searches/results- but do I make those 'pages', or 'blocks'? How do I create the tabs and links for sorting?

Thanks for all the help guys!

The best solution is using the Quick Tabs module. It allows you to create static or dynamic Ajax loaded tabs with nodes, blocks, and views.

  • This seems to be a great solution, does vertical tabs AND nested tab/functions/links- all using JQuery. Awesome- thank you!

  • I just noticed that tabs can now be rendered in a jQuery UI accordion widget. Wow.

  • yes, this works great. I got it up and running quickly, and can do some powerful stuff using jquery ui. Thanks for the tip!

  • Sadly QuickTabs doesn't work for dynamic views, 'triggered' by taxonomy (menu). If anyone has a suggestion for this issue - drupal.stackexchange.com/questions/34621/… -- getting no love, would appreciate.
