Using Bootstrap Tabs to Showcase Portfolio Elements

Need a new way to show off your growing body of clients, products, or services? Try using Bootstrap tabs to give your website's visitors the best view of everything you have to offer.

Showcasing clients or products can be one of the most effective ways to bring in more business to your website. A simple way to display all of your organization's hard work is by using Bootstrap tabs to show off these elements in an orderly fashion. Bootstrap tabs offer more than a clean look; they can even be subdivided using tabs to help your website visitors find a particular category that interests them. 

By utilizing tabs, you're able to showcase lots of items while preventing the need for your users to scroll. It also allows you to categorize your portfolio items efficiently so that your users can quickly find the content that relates most to their interest or industry.

Here's how to build out this simple and UX-friendly addition to your website: 


We're taking advantage of the default Bootstrap nav tabs code. Adding various "nav-item" and "tap-pane" containers allows you to set up the necessary elements.


Just some streamlined CSS is all you need to create tabs that showcase open space and with some slight accents.

Of course, you can use Bootstrap tabs for just about any type of content. They do, however, make your portfolio section easily manageable on your website.

Want to see how this functionality could look on your site before you invest the time in coding? Try it out first in the JSFiddle below! Don't forget to adjust the browser window at a variety of sizes to see exactly how the website responds in mobile format!
