{{start tab}} can be used to create a tabbed interface for usage on portals and projects, help pages and user pages. It should not be used in articles themselves.

Parameters

freeform-n
Set freeform-n = yes to allow for arbitrary code in that tab's tab-n entry rather than just being plain text and a link. See below.
link-n
The tab link location, where "n" is number of the tab up to 20.
link2-n
The tab 2nd link location, where "n" is number of the tab up to 20. (only applies when using freeform-n)
link3-n
The tab 3rd link location, where "n" is number of the tab up to 20. (only applies when using freeform-n)
link4-n
The tab 4th link location, where "n" is number of the tab up to 20. (only applies when using freeform-n)
link5-n
The tab 5th link location, where "n" is number of the tab up to 20. (only applies when using freeform-n)
tab-n
The name of the tab, where "n" is number of the tab up to 20.
  • The maximum number of available tabs is 20.
  • To use the next page feature, end the page with the {{End tab}} template.

Each tab needs a link attribute with the title of the page it refers to, and a tab attribute with a label for the tab. If the current page title matches a link then that tab will be styled differently. The freeform attribute can be used with any tab (for instance |freeform-2=yes to allow for a freeform label with multiple internal and external links if desires; otherwise, the text is tab is used as a wikilink to the page specified by link.
