Vertical tabs - using one gif image is awesome, and I would find it really useful. However, I am not sure how to implement the PHP which indicates the selected tab. What does this look like, since I am fairly new to PHP?

Mike, I only use PHP to load the same page with your selected tab highlighted. This saves me generating 6 pages to show each tab highlighted.
In practise you would not need PHP. Just ad class="selected" in the correct tab for the page being loaded.

Thanks for the really quick reply! I have learned a lot from your site over the last 1 1/2 years or so. The menu that I am working on right now is actually a .php menu. So I was wondering how to indicate selected buttons that way, since the menu does not reload. Is this the site to be asking this?

Hello Mike, here's a php method for showing the current page:

The method used there is _ok_ if you're just learning to use php and need an example on how it could be achieved. Alternatively, If you're really dedicated and want to learn php then I recommend for you to look into the Zend framework for php: :-)

Hey Stu, I'm just wondering if a vertical overlapping tab menu is possible? I've thought about making one for a little while now. It would be quite a neat css demo.

Martin, can you mock up an image of how the tabs would overlap?

Hello Stu,
Have a look at Adobe Reader. Here's a screenshot:
