You need to add this in the layout xml file from one of your modules (or local.xml of your theme).

    <reference name="product_info">
        <block type="your_block/alias_here" name="some_name_here" as="some_alias_here" template="path/to/template.phtml">
            <action method="addToParentGroup"><group>detailed_info</group></action>
            <action method="setTitle" translate="value"><value>Tab Title Here</value></action>

Then create your block and the template with the content you need.

  • that depends on how your tab block and template look like. I cannot guess what's wrong. You asked how to show a tab and I told you. The tab is shown. So problem solved. – Marius May 14 '15 at 7:11
  • This does work. Although I had to change product_info to product.info. – Paul Blundell Oct 3 '16 at 15:34

Go to /layout/local.xml search tab inside it. You can see something like this

<action method="addTab" translate="title" module="catalog"><alias>description</alias><title>Product Description</title><block>catalog/product_view_description</block><template>catalog/product/view/description.phtml</template></action>

Duplicate it. Rename description to your desired one. Add corresponding support files in




Also you need to change the content as well.
