Selecting a tab from another page


#1

Hello danro. I got this solution a while ago, and it did work when I implemented it then, but its not working anymore. I've done all I can to make it work, but it's just not working. Please help.


[Question] Open a page with a specific tab?
#2

Can you share the url of the site that's not working?


#3

Here's the public link to the site.
https://webflow.com/design/in2print?preview=74c543b56e1713537ddfd8a7c90e377b

I am trying to link the footer privacy policy link to the appropriate tab on the policies page.

@Busayo_Kupoluyi I think I found the issue with your custom code.

Since you are wrapping everything in the $(document).ready function, you no longer need to use the Webflow.push wrapper.

Here is an updated snippet for you to use in place of the old one:

//Linking to tab on another page
(function () {
  var tabName = getParam('tab');
  if (!tabName) return;
  $('.' + tabName).triggerHandler('click');
  function getParam(name) {
    name = name.replace(/[\[]/, "\\[").replace(/[\]]/, "\\]");
    var regex = new RegExp("[\\?&]" + name + "=([^&#]*)"),
      results = regex.exec(location.search);
    return results == null ? "" : decodeURIComponent(results[1].replace(/\+/g, " "));
  }
}());

Thanks @danro.
Implemented the update and it works now!

I´m having some problems with the link, sorry, my javascript skills are 2%

The page i want to link is /we-offer and here is the print of the structure.

This is the link i´m using and it´s not working
/we-offer?tab=weoffertabscontainer-tabs-link.banks

Can anyone give me some help of what i´m doing wrong?

This trick uses CSS class names to select the tab, so you would need to give your "banks" tab a special class in order to select it. If you apply a new class "banks" to your tab link, the url would look like this:

/we-offer?tab=weoffertabslinks.banks


#8

already did this but it not work frowning

Do i have to change anything on the body code ?


#9

Does your tab link look like this in the deisgner?

Please share a public link if this is still an issue, and I'll take a look!
