I think many would agree with me that one of the best things to ever happen to SharePoint 2007 in terms of an improved user experience was Christophe’s EasyTabs over at Path To SharePoint. This script turned several web parts that were stacked on top of each other into a much more elegant tabbed view.
And there was much rejoicing.
Christophe updated this script to work for SharePoint 2010 as well. I know countless people who have used it with great success. However, recently I needed to use EasyTabs for a SharePoint 2013 site and discovered that there was not a 2013 version and the 2010 version did not appear to work. So, what’s a jQuery hack to do but write my own solution? Although not quite as eloquent as Christophe’s solution, it gets the job done. The remainder of this blog walks you through what I did and how you can do it as well.
