WooCommerce Custom Product Tabs Lite

Description

This plugin extends WooCommerce to allow a custom product tab to be added to single product pages with arbitrary content. The new custom tab may contain text, html (such as embedded videos), or shortcodes, and will appear between the “Additional Information” and “Reviews” tabs.

Requires WooCommerce 2.5.5 or newer

Features

  • Add a single custom tab to each product in your shop
  • Insert any desired content into custom tabs to provide product specifications, shipping info, or more
  • Custom tabs can accept shortcodes or HTML content – great for embedding a marketing video or inquiry form!

Support Details

We do support our free plugins and extensions, but please understand that support for premium products takes priority. We typically check the forums every few days (with a maximum delay of one week).

WooCommerce Tab Manager

To easily add multiple tabs, share tabs between products, and more features, please consider upgrading to the premium WooCommerce Tab Manager, available from the official WooCommerce.com store.

FAQ

Can I add more than tab, or change the order of the tabs?

This free version does not have that functionality, but you can with the premium WooCommerce Tab Manager. This allows you to add multiple tabs, share tabs, edit core tabs, or re-order tab display.

How do I hide the tab heading?

The tab heading is shown before the tab content and is the same string as the tab title. An easy way to hide this is to add the following to the bottom of your theme’s functions.php or wherever you keep custom code:

add_filter( 'woocommerce_custom_product_tabs_lite_heading', '__return_empty_string' );
My tab content isn’t showing properly, how do I fix it?

Be sure that (1) your HTML is valid — try putting your tab content into a blog post draft and see how it renders. (2) Be sure any shortcodes will expand in your blog post draft as well; if they don’t work properly there, they won’t work in your custom tab.

Can I set the same tab title for all products?

Yep, there’s the woocommerce_custom_product_tabs_lite_title that passes in the tab title for you to change. This filter also passes in the $product and class instance if you’d like to change this conditionally.

Here’s how you can set one title for all custom tabs, regardless of what title is entered on the product page (can go in the bottom of functions.php or where you keep custom code):

function sv_change_custom_tab_title( $title ) {
 $title = 'Global tab title';
 return $title;
}
add_filter( 'woocommerce_custom_product_tabs_lite_title', 'sv_change_custom_tab_title' );

Reviews

Separate Product pages by artist

My client wants me to create separate pages for ONE ARTIST ONLY (see surfandrockart.com), namely Rick Griffin. Is this extension useable for doing something along that line?

Nice plugin

Works fine except that the edited page conflicts with old page when using Firefox. Nice because simple.

Really good!

I am using the X theme, which comes with 3 tabs already, but I needed one more, so I decided to give this plugin a try and it worked perfectly. Now I have 4 tabs and I can put what I want inside because it accepts both text and html. And with x shortcodes you can great things. It would be perfect if you could assign a static title and content to the tab.

Looks Perfect! – Need Help

Exactly what I need but currently not working on newest version of:
WooCommerce: 2.4.13
Wordpress: 4.4.1

Can you help?
Thanks
