L'extention Header Tabs transforme les titres de plus haut niveau, entourés par un unique "=" en onglets JavaScript.


To enable tabs on a page after you installed the extension, you need to add a ‎<headertabs /> tag into the page in place where the last tab should end (everything below this tag will be shown under the tab view). En général, la balise sera posée au bas de la page.

La page doit aussi avoir des titres définis au plus haut niveau tels que :

= Mon titre =

Each such top-level header, if it's anywhere above the ‎<headertabs /> tag, will be displayed as a tab.

Liens vers les onglets

Vous pouvez créer un lien vers l'onglet, depuis une autre page ou de l'intérieur de la page, et dans celle-ci, depuis un autre onglet ou hors des onglets. This is done using the {{#switchtablink}} parser function, which is called like this:

{{#switchtablink:Nom de l'onglet|Texte du lien|Nom de la page}}

Cela créera un lien vers l'onglet nommé "Nom de l'onglet" avec comme texte de lien : "Texte du lien". Si vous voulez un lien pointant vers un onglet d'une autre page, vous devez ajouter le troisième paramètre optionnel : "Nom de la page".

Multibyte characters as well as formatting characters (e.g. bold) are not permitted if you want to link to tabs in any way.


Some text above the tab view

= First section header =
This will be displayed on the first tab

{{#switchtablink:Second section header|Click here to go to the next tab...}}

= Second section header =
This will be displayed on the second tab

= Third section header =
This will be always displayed under the tab view because it's below the <headertabs/> tag.

The header titles get automatically converted into tab titles.

Paramètres de configuration

The following parameters can be modified in LocalSettings.php below the call to wfLoadExtension().


$wgHeaderTabsUseHistory defines whether tab navigation should be tracked within the browser history and within the URL, updating the hash value. By default this variable is set to true, i.e. history is used. You can disable it by adding the following:

$wgHeaderTabsUseHistory = false;


The $wgHeaderTabsRenderSingleTab variable defines if Header Tabs will activate if only a single top-level header is found. By default this variable is set to false, i.e. no tabs will be shown if only one top-level header is found. You can enable this behaviour by adding the following:

$wgHeaderTabsRenderSingleTab = true;


The $wgHeaderTabsAutomaticNamespaces variable defines the set of namespaces for which you don't need to add the <headertabs /> tag in order to enable tabs. If a namespace ID is defined in this variable, header tabs will activate automatically when you have two top-level headers (or one, if you have $wgHeaderTabsRenderSingleTab set to true) in an article. By default this variable holds no namespaces. You can add namespaces to this list by adding the following for each namespace:

$wgHeaderTabsAutomaticNamespaces[] = NS_MAIN;


The $wgHeaderTabsDefaultFirstTab variable defines whether Header Tabs puts any content before the first defined header and put it into its own tab. By default this variable is set to false. You can enable this behavior by adding the default name using the following:

$wgHeaderTabsDefaultFirstTab = 'DefaultTabName';

If using this setting, be careful not to enable $wgHeaderTabsRenderSingleTab as it will lead to tabs appearing in other parts of the UI.


The $wgHeaderTabsDisableDefaultToc variable defines whether Header Tabs will disable the MediaWiki article's table of contents (TOC) when tabs are enabled for a given article. This saves you the trouble of having to add __NOTOC__ to your article. If tabs are not enabled because of a lack of top-level headers, the table of contents will appear as usual. By default this variable is set to true, i.e. the MediaWiki TOC is disabled if header tabs are shown. You can disable this behavior by adding the following:

$wgHeaderTabsDisableDefaultToc = false;


If you want the page to have a TOC, but do not want to include the tab names in that TOC, add the following to LocalSettings.php:

$wgHeaderTabsNoTabsInToc = true;

If, however, you only want to keep the tabs out of the TOC in some but not all pages, you can instead add the following to the top of any such pages:



The $wgHeaderTabsGenerateTabTocs variable defines if Header Tabs will try to generate a TOC for each tab. By default this variable is set to false, i.e. no tab TOCs will be generated. You can enable this behavior by adding the following:

$wgHeaderTabsGenerateTabTocs = true;


The $wgHeaderTabsEditTabLink variable defines if Header Tabs will add a edit link to the right of the tabs which let you edit only the tabs' text. By default this variable is set to true, i.e. a edit link for the tab will be shown. You can disable this behavior by adding the following:

$wgHeaderTabsEditTabLink = false;

Known limitations and issues

  • You cannot use the tag more than once. In other words, a second tag will not produce a second series of tabs.
  • Tabs render on top of infoboxes in Chrome.
  • Header Tabs will not work with the HTML Tidy tool, i.e. if $wgTidyConfig is populated.

Sections appearing outside the tabbed section

Header Tabs sections which include floated objects (such as infoboxes) may appear outside the tabs container if other content does not force the container to be large enough to hold the floated object. One resolution to this problem is to place a cleared html element at the very end of each section.

A simple, but not best-practice, means of doing this is:

<div style="clear:both"></div>

This forces this element to be considered by the browser after your floated object and thus will grow the container to fit both.
