JBZoo Category List module is needed to display categories and items on a page as tabs or accordion. Below we’ll examine how to install and configure this module as tabs.
JBZoo Category List module should be already available in the Module Manager after you install JBZoo App. If for some reason you are unable to find it there, you just need to do some simple things.
Go to Extension Manager and click on the Discover tab there. At the top left corner click Discover.
After the search finishes, added but not installed extensions should appear in the list. Our category module may be there too.
Mark a checkbox and press Install. After installation finishes, go to Module Manager and press New. Now our module should be in the list of available modules.
Configuration of this module is pretty simple and typical for ZOO extensions. It can be divided in two stages.
By default there are two templates: Default and Example. They are similar so there is no difference which one we’ll configure. These templates are configured in the same way like other ZOO and JBZoo templates simply by dragging elements to their positions with a mouse.
Template configuration can be finished now. Now we’ll configure the module itself.

Next tab is Items configuration. It has only two options: Display items or not and Item image alignment. We want to remind that you can additionally configure item appearance in the module template configuration.
Next tab is Templates configuration. Choose a template for the module and for items. Since we already configured Default template for items, let’s choose it here. There are three templates for the module:
Border option adds borders to the items blocks.
Last two tabs with settings are common for all modules. You can configure the caching and settings for Joomla template.
In the end there we’ll have a tabs with categories containing their items:
