Specific tabs

Specific tabs are created from headings in the product description so they're perfect for information that isn't shared by multiple products such as ingredients, specifications and materials.

Create a specific tab

Tabs that are specific to a single product are generated from headings that you add into the product description content.

To create a specific tab:

  1. Click Products from your Shopify admin menu.
  2. Click on a product to edit it.
  3. Click the Description area to begin editing the product description.
  4. Press Return on the keyboard to begin a new line.
  5. Type in the name you'd like to use for the tab (e.g. Sizing).
  6. Click and drag over the name text to select it.
  7. Click the Formatting button from the Description area toolbar.
  8. Click Heading 4 from the formatting dropdown menu.
  9. Press Return on the keyboard to begin a new line.
  10. Type or paste in the content for the tab.
  11. Click Save when done to save the content.

You can repeat the steps above to create as many specific tabs for the product as you'd like. Any Heading 4 in the description will be converted into a tab and any content below a Heading 4 will become the content for that tab.
