Themes in DJ-Tabs

With the Themes functionality, you can change the appearance of DJ-Tabs.
Tab items are independent of their look, so the same set of items (tabs or accordions) can be used multiple times in multiple places (for example in different modules or menu items), and in each instance, the theme can be different, even though the content remains the same.
Themes can be selected in DJ-Tabs modules, and when adding the DJ-Tabs menu item

Built-in themes

DJ-Tabs comes with 16 built-in themes . 12 of them are customizable - you can freely modify, copy or remove them. 4 are hardcoded and can be customized with CSS.
To see the list of the themes, open Joomla! admin panel and go to Components -> DJ-Tabs -> Themes.
There you'll see a list of all available themes:
