Block Tab

From Documentations

This block lets you divide your content into tabs vertically.

NOTE: This block is only available for the PRO plan. You can configure this block normally in the Theme Editor; however, you need to upgrade your plan to apply them to the front end.

What is the Tab section perfect for?

You have various options to use the Tab section for your Shopify themes:

  • Product Information tabs: see an example here.
  • Specification tabs: see an example here.
  • Vertical tabs: see an example here.

When to use Tab metaobjects

Metaobjects are handy when you want to add fully custom Tab content per product/page using a single template. That means some (or all) products/pages have unique Tab sections specific to each product/page, even though they use the same Template.


How to use Tab metaobjects

Check out the setup guide.

If you want to create a metaobject template for an entirely custom data structure such as Cooking Recipes, Ingredient Lists, Book metadata, Technical Product specifications, etc, use ECB Media and ECB Rich Text Metaobjects by following this guide.

Add other content blocks

You can add many content blocks to a section you've created. These content blocks will be displayed in different positions within the section, depending on the Desktop/Mobile Layouts you configure.
