Custom Product Tabs for WooCommerce

Add custom tabs with content to products in WooCommerce.

This plugin extends WooCommerce to allow shop owners to add custom tabs to products. The tabs are displayed on the individual product pages to the right of the default "Description" tab.

Individual product tabs are managed on the WooCommerce Edit Product screen and can be added on a per product basis. You can also create saved tabs and add them to multiple products as needed. Tabs can be easily added, deleted and rearranged.

Tab content areas use the standard WordPress text editor and may contain text, images, html or shortcodes.

If you experience any problems, please submit a New Issue on our Github Issue Tracker and we'll look in to it as soon as possible.

This plugin is a fork of SkyVerge WooCommerce Custom Product Tabs Lite

Where do I go to add tabs to a product?

When editing a product in WooCommerce, you will find "Custom Tabs" in the bottom left corner of the Product Data box. Click on "Custom Tabs" to reveal the custom tab manager.

Where will these tabs appear?

When the product is viewed on your website you will see the tabs you created to the right of the default "Description" tab.

How do I change the order of the tabs?

To change the order of custom tabs use the up and down "Move tab order" arrows.

How do saved tabs work?

Saved tabs are tabs you can create under the Custom Product Tabs for WooCommerce settings page and then add to as many products you would like. If you update the tab from the settings page, the changes will take effect for all products using that tab.

How do I create saved tabs?

To create a saved tab, go to the 'Custom Product Tabs for WooCommerce' page found under the Settings menu and click the "Add Tab" button.

How do I add a saved tab to a product?

To add a saved tab to a product, go to the custom tabs section on the edit product screen, click the 'Add a Saved Tab' button above the tab, and choose which tab you would like to add.

What does overriding a saved tab do?

When using a saved tab on the product page, a checkbox appears with the message 'Override Saved Tab for this product.' If you click that checkbox, edit the tab and save, the tab will be changed for that product only. Any edits to that saved tab under the 'Custom Product Tabs for WooCommerce' settings page, will not be applied to that product.

Why does the WYSIWYG editor default to the 'Visual' tab?

This was added in version 1.5 to support the dynamic adding and removing of the wp_editor/WYSIWYG editor. Without this setting, the WYSIWYG editor does not load the correct toolbar and the editor can potentially break.

Does custom tab data get exported with standard WooCommerce product data?

Yes! Since v1.4 we've added the necessary code to ensure the custom tab data is exported with all of the other standard WooCommerce data. This ensures a smooth transition of products between sites.
