I was wondering if it would be possible for wikis made through MediaWiki to include a "tabview" anchor (<tabview>) when creating pages. A good example of this would be the code for a page on the Winx Wiki.

Oh. Well, to be honest, I did try out the "tabs" example because it's closest to how I want the tabs to be for my wiki (where they'd be tabs without changing the url by adding "#(section name)" and whatnot). But when I did try it, it resulted in radio buttons being displayed. I want to say that it's because I'm using the "Refreshed" skin and it wouldn't support the <tabs> anchor functioning properly, but I still don't know if I'm doing something wrong, and what it would be.

I've included a screenshot of this, complete with the code I've put in, and the preview result displayed.

It's not supposed to show them in "radio button" format, is it?

Do the tabs work with other skins?

I don't know; I haven't tried it out. But I think I'll stick by using the <tabber>, just so I don't frustrate myself with this. In that light, I sincerely apologize for taking your time like this.

Just tested Extension:Tabs. The radio buttons problem is not an issue with the skin but with the extension. Tabs extension has apparently not been working with newer MediaWiki core versions for over a year now.

For a possible hack to make the extension work, see Topic:U6dfyez15vz3ya9u. Have tested the two lines replacement hack, it works.
