Tabs Not Working

    I haven't done any updating to this page for quite some time, but I just happened to visit it and the
    Vertical tabs are messed up. I ran into this a long time ago following a WP update and perhaps that is the case again, but could you please have a look? The info is showing in one continuous block.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but no one from MSMW staff have responded to this forum or email contacts for over 8 months.

    Regarding your issue...I took a quick look and you have some weird source from weblizer. The following lone of code appears in your web page source and it should not be there:

    <script type = "text/javascript" src = ""></script>

    You have an Echelon theme loaded...not sure why there is a persuasion theme entry from!

    FYI - The MSMW themes have not been updated for a couple of years and are behind in WordPress and php conventions. I have started an open source community for those people that wish to continue using MSMW themes called BackStop Themes if you are interested. See https:/ for the non-techies and for the techies. BackStop themes are MSMW themes brought up-to-date to WP4.7 and php7 compliance. Clean-up is progressive and ongoing but each release is a stable release. Remember to backup before updating though in case you want to go back for some reason.

    That bit of code was something I placed on the site the last time this happened. I got it from this forum and it fixed the issue. Now I have no idea what to do other than scrap the tabs. Thanks so much for taking the time to update me. What a shame that the guys have gone MIA. Take care.

    You shouldn't need to scrap the tabs.

    Delete that following extra line of code you added...

    <script type = "text/javascript" src = ""></script>

    It should never have been added. It is double-loading the same script but from a remote location. Not good practice from a security perspective.

    When you have removed that line of code I'll take another look at the browser debug console and we can fix it properly.

    Up to you :-)

    I appreciate your assistance. I did delete the line of code. Nothing changed, so I reworked all but one page where the horizontal tabs seem to be OK.

    Thanks for making the change. I did not expect that change to fix the problem based on your previous comment. I just needed that line removed so I could track down the real problem.

    If you do a "View Source" on your home page you will notice the following:

    			<div class="tabs_vertical_container">
    <div class="tabs_vertical_frame"><span class="bg_top"></span></p>

    You will notice in the code above that you have a terminating html paragraph but not an opening html paragraph. Also, the terminating html paragraph is being rendered in the middle of the tabs_vertical_container class.


    1) You have an un-terminated paragraph in your home page text
    2) You have an un-terminated paragraph in your vertical tabs title
    3) You have a plug-in loaded that contains or is configured to contain text with an un-terminated paragraph

    Take a look and see if you can trace it down. If you cannot find an unterminated paragraph try wrapping the vertical tabs shortcode with the raw shortcode ([raw] [/raw]). This could be a conflict with the WordPress auto-paragraph functionality.

    If none of this helps let me know. The alternative is a bit trickier to sort out. I noticed that the html looks fine in the browser debugger but has an un-terminated paragraph in the "view source". This may mean there is an issue with the javascript but I doubt it. "View Source" shows the original code and the debugger shows the post-browser parsing version of the source code.

    Let me know.

    I'll take a look, Tim. Thanks!

    I restructured the pages already, so I think I'm going to leave it for now. I really appreciate your assistance and if I run into any other issues, can I still contact (PM) you? I don't want to impose, but it's clear you know way more than I do. Thanks again.

    Any solution is a good solution :-)

    FYI - Someone else reported to me the same problem and it was, indeed, corrected by wrapping the shortcode with the raw shortcode [raw] ... [/raw].
