I'm using the theme, Fabia, from themeforest, and I cannot for the life of me get rid of the "Custom Tab 1" and "Custom Tab 2" tabs by the product description. They default to a description of Lorem Ipsum and I've seen it on other sites. I'm trying to minimize duplicate content and I just want to get rid of them, as I don't need custom tabs, but I can't even find the option anywhere. Is anyone else using this theme that has run into this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Welcome to Magento.SE!

This type of question is likely off topic because there are just too many themes and theme vendors to support all of them well - but as your'e a first-timer I'm happy to oblige.

I've never had any experience with Ultimo, but a quick Google search turned up the following:

These blocks are only for static content (they are global, not product-specific). How to create those tabs – it is described in the user guide. Static blocks in Magento are global, can’t be assigned to a specific page or product.

There are two other tabs on product page for product-specific info: 1 – Description: which displays product long description 2 – Additional Info: which displays product attributes. You can enable/disable each attribute’s visibility on product page with “Visible on Product View Page on Front-end” field in Catalog > Attributes > Manage Attributes > [attribute] >Frontend Properties.

According to this it sounds as though it will always be static and therefore will not avoid the duplicate content issues you're concerned about.

I suggest that you follow the instructions above to disable the applicable attributes.

HTH! Cheers.




Look for the file app/design/frontend/default/yourtheme/layout -> catalog.xml Find this

<block type="catalog/product_view_tabs" name="product.info.tabs" as="info_tabs" template="catalog/product/view/tabs.phtml">

    <action method="addTab" translate="title" module="catalog">






Comment out or remove both custom tabs :)

<action method="addTab" translate="title" module="catalog">custom tab 1 code</action>

 <action method="addTab" translate="title" module="catalog">custom tab 2 code</action>
