Trying to link menu item to open a tab on page


Please take a look at the site I'm working on here:


Hover over 'Services' and then click on one of the services. I want to be able to click on a service from the dropdown menu and have that open the corresponding tab in the body of the page on the Services page.

Is this possible?

Thanks for your help!

Would like to help and not sure if you've made changes since you posted this, but when I visit the link your site currently says under construction.

Hi Brandon,

The site currently says it's under construction so we're unable to view it to help. Are you wanting to create tabbed links so that when you click one it instantly shows you new content without reloading a new page? Or are you simply trying to link to a new page?

If its the tab style navigation I believe the best way is to use Javascript. A framework such as twitter bootstrap comes with this kind of script built into it, but I'm sure you can probably learn how to do it by following some of the Treehouse courses.
