Tab Override allows you to enter tabs into the content field (the main text area) when writing posts or pages.
Compatibility: WordPress 2.9+, MediaWiki 1.7.0+
Download and extract the plugin from the above link. Upload the tab-override folder to your plugins directory. You can then activate the plugin for your WordPress dashboard.
Download and extract the plugin to your extensions directory, then add the following line to your LocalSettings.php file:
require_once( '$IP/extensions/tab-override/tab-override.php' );
No configuration or editing required. Just activate the plugin
Some Notes (WordPress)
As always the Visual editor will destroy your formatting, including tabs. In addition to this, tabs will function as they normally would in the Visual Editor. If you stick to the HTML editor, your tabs will remain in your code, though they will only be visible if they are nested in pre tags.
If you primarily use the visual editor this plugin is most likely not for you. If you use the HTML editor or frequently post source code this plugin is for you.
