How to add a widget inside a Tabs widget

You can insert another element into a tab this way:

  1. Create the element that you want to insert inside a tab and save it as a Global Widget.
  2. Go to your Template Library and copy the shortcode of the relevant global widget.
  3. Within the Tabs widget, click on the Add Item button to create a new tab.
  4. In the text area of the tab, paste the shortcode you previously copied.

Note: Using Elementor template shortcodes within the widget may sometimes work, but it is not a supported feature.
