I am trying to add a custom tab to the Product Information page:

Custom Tab in Product Information page

I have followed the instructions on the following websites but have been unable to get the custom tab to appear:

How do I add a custom tab to the product information page in the admin panel?

I have the FishPig Wordpress Integration plugin that is adding blog tabs to the page - could these be conflicting with my tab somehow?


I have set the FishPig plugin as inactive via its xml file, and my custom tab still does not show - so I do not think there is a conflict with this plugin.

For Front-end product tabs:

Please check first if your theme has a tab solution if they do not you can remove the extension you are using now through magento connect and install easytabs extension. It always worked for me.

For Back-end product tabs: this link gives you step by step how to add product tabs in the backend: http://phpcmsframework.blogspot.in/2012/12/magento-steps-to-add-custom-tabs-to.html

  • easytabs looks like a front-end tab solution for the product page. I am looking to add a tab in the admin panel. Commented Jul 10, 2013 at 15:39
  • true, sorry what exactly do you want in the admin tab? I was able to create admim product tabs through creating custom attributes and organizing it in "Manage attributes sets".

  • I have been able to create my own attribute group tab as well, but I do not want to create an attribute group. I am creating my own module that creates a tab which shows my own code. Commented Jul 10, 2013 at 16:00
