Please note: these features were funded by Conn’s Cameras, and they have graciously agreed for them to be released generally and to be used by non-competing sites.

Overview

Content Tabs is a new WebStore Manager feature that enables you to create and modify customized tabs that are displayed on your product page:

Each content tab contains the following fields:

  • Name: a unique internal name of the tab, visible only in the WebStore Manager;
  • Label: the tab label under which it is displayed on your website (e.g. Specifications);
  • Status: it can be either:
    • Active: active tabs are displayed on your website;
    • Inactive: inactive tabs are not displayed on your website.

You can have multiple content tabs with the same label, e.g., Specifications, but a different name, e.g., Laptop_1 Spec, Laptop_2 Spec. It is easy to differentiate between them on the WebStore Manager level and assign them to specific products while keeping the same label and design on the product pages.

You can access and manage your Content tabs in two ways:

1. From your Product Details page:

To add, remove, and modify tabs assigned to a given product, go to the Product Details page in your Webstore Manager by following the steps in the All Products article.

Content Tabs is located under product information on the Product Details page:

The Content tabs panel enables you to:

  • Edit content tabs;
  • Rename content tabs;
  • Set status of content tabs;
  • Remove assignment of content tabs to your product or delete them completely;
  • Preview content tabs.

You can also create assignments, remove assignments, or create new content tabs.

2. From Design & Content>Content>Content Tabs:

To open Content Tabs, choose Content under the Design & Content dropdown menu in your Webstore Manager:


On the Content page, click on “Content Tabs”:

This opens a page with a list of all your content tabs:

To filter the content tabs, you can use the following tools found in the header:

  1. Show Filters

    This option allows you to filter the content tabs by following criteria:

    • Department;
    • Category;
    • Subcategory;
    • Brand;
    • Status;

    by choosing the desired option from the dropdown list(s).

  2. Search box

    In the right upper corner you will find the search box that enables you to search for tabs by keywords (which are in either the tab name or label).

    Below these tools, the content tabs are listed:

    This panel enables you to:

    • Edit content tabs;
    • Rename content tabs;
    • Set status of content tabs;
    • Remove content tabs;
    • Preview content tabs.

    You can also create, remove, and update the status of content tabs, or assign products to multiple tabs at the same time.

Content Tab Page

To open the Content Tab page dedicated to a specific content tab:

  1. From the list in Design & Content>Content>Content Tabs, click on the name of the content tab:

  2. Click on the “Edit” button either in the list in Design & Content>Content>Content Tabs, or in the Content Tabs section of the Product Details page:

    This will redirect you to a page dedicated to the content tab:

    The page consists of following elements:

    • Page Name;
    • Page Label;
    • Action buttons to Preview, Edit, Rename, or Remove content;
    • Assigned products section.

    Assigned products are displayed with their Thumbnail, Code, Name, and Department. In this section, you can assign/remove products from the content tab.
