I can’t get any tabs to show on my products. Can you help? Thanks

It looks like you’re using a somewhat custom tab layout. Your theme might be overriding tabs.

Are you able to add a default description tab to products? (By filling in the main content area, the description tab should automatically be populated.)

Thank you,

thanks for the reply. Yes, the description works but I don’t use it. I prefer just using the short description. I’ve added a temp description to show this with the above product.

Oh I see. Interesting. And you have custom tabs assigned to this same product?

Although that’s given me an idea, I can just use the description tag for the purpose I was going to use your plugin. SO if it doesn’t work with my theme then no worries! thanks

Ah… the tabs have to be added individually to each product? I see that now. That’s not ideal for me but I’ve found an alternative solution as mentioned above, so all good, cheers

Oh well, at least you have a solution ��

Sorry it’s not working! Not sure what’s going on there.

it is working! Your plugin is fine, I just didn’t have the tabs assigned to individual products as I assumed it was a universal tab that would be added to all products.


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 ticket on our Free WordPress Support Forums and we’ll look in to it as soon as possible.

This plugin is compatible with WPML.

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 and then add to as many products you would like. If you update a saved tab, the changes will be updated for all products using that tab.

How do I create saved tabs?

To create a saved tab, click on the ‘Custom Product Tabs’ item on the WordPress dashboard 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 a product, a checkbox appears with the message ‘Override Saved Tab’ 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 ‘Custom Product Tabs’ 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.

Woocommerce Review, Tabs & More Not Showing up on Product Page WordPress

I would like all the Woocommerce information to show up on my product pages:

Here is one page for example:

What do I need to do to make everything show up on the product page?

PS. I created woocommerce.php and put my page template inside of it.
That is what this site told me to do: ((http://docs.woothemes.com/document/third-party-custom-theme-compatibility))

But when I tried to add

it would create an error and the page would not work at all. This was the error message:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ENDWHILE in /home1/katekate/public_html/softwarecompanyratings.com/wp-content/themes/OptimizePress/woocommerce.php on line 1210

When I delete the woocommerce.php page, everything shows up on the page, but the style is gone and does not have my header image, my nav bar and looks all messed up.

My page looks great better now (with the Woocommerce.php) but lacks all the Woocommerce info I would like to have displayed on the product page. I really want the reviews to show, the other content to show, the other images to show and tabs to show. Maybe I have to delete the Woocommerce.php file and somehow create a styling for the Woocommerce product page? But I want it to look like the styling I have now. I don’t want to lose that. I would like to have all the Woocommerce info to show.

I really don’t want to have to get a different theme. I love my theme I have now. I bought it and paid really good money for it. So if there is a solution to this problem, please let me know.
