  3. From the dropdown menu, select a product template.

  4. To add tabs to an existing theme section (usually beside the product images), click + Add block.

  6. Optional

    Click the block name to view and edit the settings.

  7. Click Save.

Online Store 2.0 themes only

The Tabs app block can only be used with Online Store 2.0 themes. For vintage themes, activate the Tabs app embed instead.

Tabs does not add code to theme files

The Tabs app block does not add, change, or remove any theme code.

All app functionality is provided via lightweight JavaScript that's loaded asynchronously and is completely separate from the theme.

The Tabs app block does not remove other blocks

If content is showing twice after adding the Tabs app block it's because the content is also being shown by a different block, most commonly the theme's default Description block.

To stop the content from showing twice, hide or remove the block that is showing the same content as the tabs.

Make sure to undo the changes if you delete the Tabs app (see below).

The Tabs app block is removed when the app is deleted

When the Tabs app is deleted, Shopify automatically removes the Tabs app block from any templates it was added to.

The block, and any content it displayed, will no longer show in your shop.

If content is missing from your shop's pages after deleting the app, edit the theme and add the appropriate block to the page.
