This accessory was born primarily out of frustration with having to redo my layouts every time I needed to change a tab name in the publish entry screen. This task can be both time consuming and annoying depending on the complexity of your layouts. So, I set out to try my hand at alleviating this issue and hopefully contribute back to the community that has helped me so much over the past few years.
Requires: ExpressionEngine 2.1.0
By default, EE does not support renaming of tabs in the publish entry screen. This is an issue if you have complicated publish layouts since you'd have to essentially reproduce your efforts every time you needed to change a tab name.
This little accessory finally allows renaming of tabs in publish entry screens! Simply double click the tab name while editing your publish layout and the label becomes editable.
Move the rename_publish_tabs folder to your ./system/expressionengine/third_party/ folder.
Enable the accessory from the Add-ons > Accessories menu.
Go to any publish entry page and click 'Show Toolbar' to edit your publish layout.
Double click the Tab label to enter edit mode.
Press enter or click anywhere on the screen to exit edit mode.
