Single Posts In Tabs Using Genesis

The code in this tutorial enables you to create tabs ( using code, not plugin ) which display the entry title, featured image and content limit. You can also add a custom image in replace of the featured image, If no custom image added, the featured image will be used.

The tutorial is written based on the following question :

Is there any way to force Genesis Tabs (or Genesis Tabs Extended) plugin to use a picture other than “featured image”? I use Genesis News Pro theme and need to promote a few articles. I tried different sliders, but none of them looks as good as Genesis Tabs…

Here’s the demo video.
