The Static Grid Tab widget is a handy feature presented by BDthemes and it is a part of the Element Pack Pro. It helps you show the items statically in a grid having tab functions.
Now, let’s learn how to use the widget on your site.
Insert the widget
To insert the widget on your page, type Static Grid Tab in the search field, then just drag-drop the widget in the text area.
Let’s create the Static Grid Tab Layout
After inserting the widget, you will see a default view of the Static Grid Tab in the Items section under the Content tab.
When you hover and click on the items, you can see a tab below with an image along with title and text, and a Read More option which is the info of the item.
Step 1 – Customize grid items
Notice that there are some items on the left in the Items section, and below them, there is a button to add more items.
Using the content tab, you can create the layout of the Static Grid Tab whatever you want.
First, go to the first Item. Just click on it. Here, you can change the image, then change the title, and text. At the bottom, you will get a link field.
