Default How To Put a Link in a TabbedPanels Tab?


I'm crazy about the thing that tabbed panels are just for navigating the same page. There're some solutions how to link from a link to another page's Panel Tab. But I would actually want to put a link in a PanelTab to link to another page's Tab or even anchored place on another page. In other words: is it possible to convert a TabbedPanel to a Navigation Menu?

The reason for that is that I want to gather content from different pages of my website onto one page and combine it with a content of that page.

Sorry if I didn't make it clear or if it's too crazy. Unfortunately I'm a very beginner in dreamweaver (CS4) and in coding at all...

thank you for your answers, in advance

rather than trying to force tabbed panels to work, I'd see if you can find a jQuery menu solution that does what you want. It would be cleaner.
If my answer helped, check out DWcourse.com for Dreamweaver tips and tutorials.

Thank you, DWcourse

Actually I'm really slow at learning coding, so maybe an option with jQuery is not so suitable to me.
But why not Perl or PHP? I just recently converted my website to PHP. So I could better stuck with it for a while...?!

After some experimenting I found out that the list of "TabbedPanelsTabGroup" is connected with DIV's of the "TabbedPanelsContentGroup" in straight order. If for example, I delete one content DIV from the existing 5 DIVs in "TabbedPanelsContentGroup", then the rest 4 <div class="TabbedPanelsContent"> Divs joins the first 4 Tab lists of the <ul class="TabbedPanelsTabGroup">.

This way I actually can make the last Tab to link to another page by adding <a href... code. Otherwise (leaving the number of tabs and tabsContent to equal) a link in a Tab list's code doesn't work. It simply directs to existing "TabbedPanelsContent" DIV.

So now the problem is - how to assign the first "TabbedPanelsContent's" DIV to a second Tab in a list (assuming I can now make a link in a Tab by deleting some "TabbedPanelsContent" DIVs ) so that I could have a free channel to make a first Tab to link to ANOTHER PAGE?

In your opinion - if it's still possible or better forget it at all?
