Please Help!

Hello I am trying to create a tabber inside of the image section of the infobox located below. I want it to be small and look like the one here, and if possible customize the color to match the infobox. Though I have no experience with code and the wiki whose tabber I want to copy does there infoboxes different from everyone else so I can't figure out how to do it from viewing their codes. If anyone has any idea how to fix help me it would be most appreciated. ErzaLover 19:34, May 7, 2011 (UTC)

Narutopedia uses Semantic MediaWiki for all there pages. If you would like help with it, ask User:Dantman who I know does a lot of the work there. You will need Semantic MediaWiki enabled on your wiki.--GodPray  20:00,5/7/2011 

I'll go ask him now, thanks for your help!! ErzaLover 20:21, May 7, 2011 (UTC)

Once you get SMW, this is what you want. It's not the whole infobox, but it's the tabber piece of the infobox.  Monchoman45  Talk  Contribs  Skystone  22:03,5/7/2011 

You don't actually need Semantic MediaWiki. The tabber that wiki uses is this one. You can probably change the colors by adding something to your Wikia.css or Wikia.js.

Alternatively, you can try another tabber that I used a while ago, which can be customized easily enough.--IK Talk 00:57, May 8, 2011 (UTC)

To God and Monchoman, do you guys know of any big differences between the regular wiki and the semantic wiki because the wiki I edit won't change until they have all the facts about the other wiki. In addition IK, do you think you could dumb down the conversation that you guys had on the forum you linked me too,(not that smart when it comes to wiki codes). ErzaLover 02:19, May 8, 2011 (UTC)

Semantic MediaWiki is an extension. You still have all of the wiki tools you use, but you get a bunch of extra parsers that are "semantic" - it's a complicated extension, and it confuses people. But it's an addition, not an overwrite or anything.  Monchoman45  Talk  Contribs  Skystone  02:26,5/8/2011 
"do you guys know of any big differences between the regular wiki and the semantic wiki" The alternative to SMW is DPL. They are mutually exclusive on a wiki. Each do certain things extremely well but not what the other excels at. Rappy 17:04, May 8, 2011 (UTC)
As Moncho said, it is just an extension. It will not hurt anything, only add to it. It is exceedingly difficult to use if you are not a strong coder but as long as you copy everything right, it will be fine.--GodPray  02:34,5/8/2011 

Ok, thanks for all your help ^_^!!! ErzaLover 02:37, May 8, 2011 (UTC)

To dumb it down, copy this page into your MediaWiki:Wikia.css (change colors to the ones you need), and this page into your MediaWiki:Common.js.
Then just use this code to put the tabber into your pages or templates:
<div class="tabber">

<div class="tabbertab">
<h5 style="display:none;">Tab 1 title</h5>
Tab 1 content
</div>

<div class="tabbertab">
<h5 style="display:none;">Tab 2 title</h5>
Tab 2 content
</div>

</div>
