How to Create Tabs in WordPress to Organize Content

If you have to publish lots of information of various types on blog posts or pages concisely, tabs could be a helpful web element to do this. They allow you to organize content in separate sections so users can selectively explore and find the information they need.

With the Gutenberg block editor, you can easily add tabs to your blog posts. In this article, we’ll show you how to create tabs in WordPress to organize content. Before that, we’ll answer some basic questions.


What are Tabs in WordPress?

Tabs serve as a navigational tool, allowing you to display lots of information in various sections. As a result, users don’t have to depend on excessive scrolling to explore vast information on your post or page.

They provide a structured format so users can find the specific information they seek by clicking on them. People normally use the tab element to display their web pages in the hero and header sections.

But today, with the help of certain Gutenberg plugins, you can create tabbed content anywhere on any post or page.

When Should You Use Tabs in WordPress?

Tabbed content works exceptionally when you have a large amount of information that needs to be displayed in a tabular format. This element is particularly effective in organizing the following information types.

Product Descriptions: You can use this block to cover product specifications, features, and customer reviews in separate tabs.

Service Offerings: If you have multiple service plans or packages, showcasing them in separate sections is better.

Pricing Plans: It is already a common practice to display multiple pricing plans in different tabs on websites.

FAQs: Although most people love to use FAQ and content toggle blocks for the FAQ section, you can also use the tab block to cover this section.

Comparative Information: If there is any information that would be better presented in a side-by-side section, the tab block is useful in this case.
