Hello See my below demo when you click on the menu it will show the content right side i have only done this for 3 menu only others will be same

use jQuery to do this easily


 $(document).ready(function () {
 $('#button ul li:first').addClass('active');
 $('#button ul li a').click(function (event) {
    var content = $(this).attr('href');

I added a liitle Css

 .active {
 .section {
 #button {

also and some html elements for content section

 <div id="section-Menu1" class="tab-content">
 <h2>Menue 1</h2>
 <p>Welcome Menue 1 Text.</p>

see the below Fiddle details

**If you dont want menu1 being active then just remove $('#button ul li:first').addClass('active'); and write $('.tab-content').hide();below instead of$('.tab-content:not(:first)').hide();

Hope It helps You MenuSidebarFiddle
