You can add new sections but only under the existing pluggable locations. For your new tab, you should be able to do whatever you want programmatically, right? i.e. not using the location parameter.

Thanks Jobin, that is what I was wondering about, so it is clear now that I cannot define a new location for adding new sections in user defined tabs in confluence.

Well as Jobin says, you can do what you like in your tab.

If wanted to supportfurther pluggable tabs then in your Velocity template you could do something along the lines of -

<div id="tab-navigation">
   <ul class="tab-navigation">
        #foreach ($item in $webInterfaceManager.getDisplayableItems("my.plugin.point", $action.webInterfaceContext))
        <li #if ($tab == $item.key) class="current tab" #else class="tab" #end>
            <a href="$$req, $action.webInterfaceContext)">$item.label.getDisplayableLabel($req, $action.webInterfaceContext)</a>

However, without understanding your full requirements I couldn't say whether this is a suitable approach for you or not.
