Default Tab for Craft CMS

When building sites with Craft CMS, you've probably done this a couple of times: you create a new section, you go to add fields and the first thing you have to do is add a new tab. Every time. This plugin aims to fix that 🎉.


To install Default Tab, follow these steps:

  1. Download & unzip the file and place the defaulttab directory into your craft/plugins directory
  2. Install plugin in the Craft Control Panel under Settings > Plugins
  3. The plugin folder should be named defaulttab for Craft to see it. GitHub recently started appending -master (the branch name) to the name of the folder for zip file downloads.

Default Tab works on Craft 2.4.x, 2.5.x. and 2.6.x


  • Tab title: set the title for your default tab
  • Use title field: enabling this gives each new section a title field (only applies to Single sections)
  • Select the field groups you want to add to your new sections by default. Fields in those groups will be added to the section.
