In order to do this, please just follow steps listed below:

  1. Reach public_html directory on your server and reach template files.

  2. Next open templates/themexxxx folder and look for templateDetails.xml file. Look for this part of code:

    <position> tab-1</position>
    <position> tab-2</position>
    <position> tab-3</position>

    In that file you have to look for each tab-3 code and add the same code for tab-4 below it:


  4. Once you are done with adding code for tab-4, we need to add font awesome icon for new tab, place this code in template.css file:

    .tabs-services .nav-tabs .num4 a:before {
      content: "\f10a";} 

    In that code you can replace “\f10a” with any number of icon you need. Save changes:


  5. Next, open responsive.css file. Perform the same steps as with template.css file, look for each tab-3 code and add the same code for tab-4 below it.

  6. Log into Joomla administrative section. Navigate to Content -> Category manager and create new category.

    Now we have to create a new article and assign it to the created category. Click on Content -> Article manager, click New button on the left. From the drop down on the right select created category:


  7. Next, go toExtensions->Module manager and create new module. Module Type has to be Artciles-newsflash(Advanced). In Category tab select the category that was created and in Position tab type tab-4.

    Go to Advanced tab and set Module Class Suffix: tab-4 and add blank space before it, then click on Save button:


  8. Navigate to Content->Article manager, click New and create new article, enter article name and on the left select Tabs on services category.
