Understanding Elementor Tabs with Dynamic Content
Elementor tabs serve as a practical tool for organizing and compartmentalizing content on a webpage. They allow you to create separate sections, each accessible by clicking on its corresponding tab. This feature is particularly useful for pages with a large amount of content, as it improves navigation and readability.
Dynamic content in Elementor refers to content that changes based on specific conditions or parameters. It can include anything from posts and product pages to user profiles and forms. By integrating dynamic content within tabs, you can create a more interactive and personalized user experience.
Setting Up Elementor for Dynamic Content
Before you can start creating dynamic tabs, you need to ensure that your Elementor settings are correctly configured. Specifically, you need to enable the Flexbox container and nested settings. These settings are crucial for creating complex layouts with your tabs.
Here’s how to enable these settings:
- Open the Elementor settings.
- Navigate to the ‘Features’ tab.
- Look for the ‘Flexbox Container’ and ‘Nested Settings’ options and enable them.
This process ensures that your Elementor is ready to handle dynamic content within tabs.
Creating Tabs in Elementor
Creating tabs in Elementor is a straightforward process. Here’s a more detailed guide:

Adding Dynamic Content to Tabs
With your tabs in place, you can now start adding dynamic content. For this, we’ll use the loop grid widget, which allows you to display posts, products, or any custom post types in a grid layout.

Elementor allows you to customize your tabs based on specific categories. This means you can create tabs that display content from a specific category, making it easier for users to find what they’re looking for.
Here’s how to customize your tabs based on categories:
- Click on the ‘Loop Grid’ widget inside one of your tabs.
- Scroll down to the ‘Query’ section.
- In the ‘Include Term’ field, enter the name of the category you want to display content from.
- Repeat these steps for each tab you want to customize.
Advanced Tab Customization
Here’s how to create nested tabs:
