🧰 Using the Product Tabs Manager
In order to access the features of this module, make sure you follow this path:
📍 WooCommerce > Product Tabs
From here global tabs can be created to be used by multiple products. This can be controlled from the tab options by selecting the categories of the products that should display the current tab.
The global tabs' content can be edited with the WordPress blocks editor, and for choosing the categories of the products where the tabs will appear, you can mark/unmark them in the right sidebar.
This tab will display all products with the categories Calendars and Books & Magazines.
An important thing to note is that if no category has been selected, the custom tab will be applied to all products.
If the custom tab has some categories for which it will be displayed, then the products from those categories will have the custom tab.
📝 Note: The Custom sorting works only in the Sorting tab. The All / Published tabs do not provide this feature.
This feature is available for each particular product and offers the possibility of adding custom tabs for the current product only.
For adding a custom tab to the current product, edit it, then navigate to Product data > Product tabs.
📝 Note: Please note that you'll only see the default tabs of WooCommerce here and the custom ones you add. The global tabs mentioned in the above chapter don't appear here.
The custom tabs added in this section can't be edited with the WordPress blocks editor. The formatting options are available below the text area.
There are multiple options in the Custom Tab dropdown: Description, Additional Information, Reviews. As you can see, the ones different from the Custom Tab have the same name as the WooCommerce default tabs. This means that you can use them only to replace the default tabs.
📝 Note: In order to add a new Description / Additional Information / Reviews tab, you have to remove the existing one, from WooCommerce.
Changing Visibility and Sorting
Another interesting fact is that you can control the tabs' visibility and rearrange them.
- Navigate to WooCommerce > Product Tabs and then click on Sorting.
Once you have clicked on Sorting, the visibility ( 👁 ) and rearranging the tabs becomes accessible.
- To change the visibility of a product tab, just click on the icon.
For example, we have turned the Reviews tab into not visible here. This means that the Reviews tab will no longer appear on the product page:
- Also, you can drag and drop the tabs, to rearrange them.
