I’m a UX designer who has to do some web development on a vendor’s platform. The vendor’s system is php and frequently uses iframes to place content, so I spend a lot of time trying to find ‘creative’ solutions to pages I have to build myself.
I’m creating a basic css tab menu. I need to be able to link users to this page with specific tabs open for different use cases. Our vendor says they can’t help us with this “because it’s a php page”. I feel like this should be possible, but I don’t have deep dev knowledge.
So, if I understand you correctly: You have a page a tab menu, something like the screenshot below;
Now you want to be able to send a link to a user, which right away opens a specific tab, say the "FAQ" page.
In that case, PHP is most certainly possible, but probably not your best choice. Note: I'd probably walk away from a vendor that cannot handle PHP - kind-a basic knowledge if you ask me.
If you decide to do this in PHP, then you could use GET or POST (FORMs) to set the CSS style accordingly - if this is the same PHP file or engine that is generating the page. So the PHP file (or Engine like WordPress, Joomla, etc) that generates this HTML document, will have to set the CSS properly before the user gets the HTM page.

Google Fonts Very large collection of high quality and free TrueType/OpenType fonts.
XKPassword Super practical website for those who need to generate one or a list of passwords based on words (more secure).
AlternativeTo Great resource when you're looking for alternatives for an application that you'd like to use, but might not be available on your platform or the application you have is just not doing it right.
