Great module - I'm just wondering if someone can guide me on how to achieve a specific thing...

I have a content type that has quite a large amount of content in each node, so I've decided to create a set of vertical tabs that will house the content in a more user friendly manner using field group.

Everything works fine, however I need to move the tabs only (the ul and li's) to a region on the page (the right sidebar) which is separate to where the actual content displays.

I played around with 'display suite' to try and achieve this, but to my knowledge you can't actually separate the tabbed navigation as a block from the content it displays and place it in a region of your choosing.

I also saw that there is the module 'fieldgroup menu' that almost does what I want, however it seems that this module actually generates separate pages (url's) for each tab. This isn't what I need to achieve. I need it to function exactly as it does using just 'field group' vertical tabs, but to be able to place the tabs only into a different region and for the content to display all on the same page within different tabs.

Is there another way that I should be approaching this? Any help would be appreciated.

What you are trying to do is not possible via PHP. The tabs are actually fieldsets, and javascript transforms them to tabs. So if you want the tabs on a separate place, you'l need custom javascript
