How to use tabs in the body of the app

Hi, I’m new to ionic and have found plenty of examples of tabs in the header and footer of a page or view. I understand how this works in the MVC style of angular.js.

I’m trying to build a page that has two tabs outside the header and footer, and I simply want to switch to the content of each tab when the appropriate tab is clicked. My question is, how do I accomplish this without having to switch views? This would be similar to tabs on a normal webpage, or app.

I’ve tried messing about with the the examples I’ve found, but the tabs do not seem to appear on the page at all.

Look into this.
