By default, every WooCommerce product has 3 possible tabs:
- Description: Where the long description of the product is displayed.
- Additional Information: Where the product attributes, if any, are displayed.
- Ratings: The comments and ratings section of the product, if they are active.
And that’s fine, they are enough for most online stores, but what if I want to add more custom tabs?
Well, like everything in WordPress, we have several solutions to achieve this, based on plugins, those wonders of code that others have created to make our lives easier.
The truth is that there are many plugins to add custom tabs to WooCommerce products, both free and paid, but the best of all, by far, that I’ve been using for years and always with perfect results, is Custom Product Tabs, which offers everything you need and is also free.
But let’s see how to use it.
Add customized tabs on each product
As soon as you install and activate the plugin it is operational, and when you edit a product you will see that, in the product data section, there is a new section called “Custom tabs“.
Just click on the “Add a tab” button and a mini WordPress editor will appear, where you can add text, styles, images, videos, whatever you need, it works and has the same thing you have in the classic editor.
Add a title, enter the content and click the “Save tabs” button to save the tab when you update the product.
And it will be automatically added to your product page.
Add reusable custom saved tabs
Now, imagine that the above tab you would want to use it on more than one product, well for that you have the plugin option to create what is called custom product tabs to save.
To create them just go to the new administration menu created for this purpose and edit it as you would do with any content, with the classic WordPress editor.
From now on you can insert them in the products you need by clicking on the “Add a saved tab” button.
As you can see, simple and complete.
In addition, if you have noticed in the screenshots, you can move the different tabs with simple arrows, remove them, whatever you want.
Finally, if you need to add tabs globally or assign a tab automatically to an entire taxonomy or more specialized settings, they have a pro version, which offers that and more, but with the free version, you have enough features most of the time.
