RokSprocket

You will need to do two things to prepare this widget so that it looks similar to the one in the demo.

First, you will need to create the RokSprocket Widget. You can do this by navigating to Administration -> RokSprocket Admin and creating a new Tabs widget.

You can find out more about RokSprocket and how to set up and modify widgets by visiting our RokSprocket documentation.

Simple Content Provider

We used the Simple Content Provider to allow us to make custom tabs without having to build posts on the back-end. In this case, the Tab Label and Description are custom, while the other options are left at default or None settings. You will find the settings used in one of these items below.

Tab Label
