1. Overview

Magento 2 Product Custom Tabs extension allows you to create new tabs to replace the default tabs on product pages. By arranging tabs, the product content will be improved and displayed effectively.

2.  How Does It Work?

Go to Catalog ⇒ Product Tabs ⇒ Product Tabs Management, you can see a grid displays all product tabs including default tabs (Details, More Information, and Reviews) with the information about Tab ID, Title, Status, Visible for Purchasing Customers Only, Position and Edit link.

Manage Product Custom Tabs

There’re 2 buttons on the top right off the page:

  • Add New Tab: choose this button to create a new tab, you will be redirected to the tab edit page.
  • Reindex Rule: Because this module allows you to assign tabs to products by rule, hence, when a product is removed from the rule, you need to press this button to delete the tab of this product.

This grid is enabled by store views, hence, you can take actions on it and edit custom tabs by store view scope. The module allows you to mass delete, enable, and disable multiple product tabs in the grid. Please follow the steps:

  • Select product tabs by checking box in the first column
  • Explore the Action field to choose to Delete, Enable, or Disable the selected tabs
