Product content is a way of dividing your product’s content/description into several, more understandable sections with the WordPress Shopping Cart plugin.
When you initially save a product, you type its description into the editor but you may want to add content/description sections to your product such as specifications, instructions, tutorials, features, etc. It is ideal for that!
In the ‘Product Content’ section, you can add product descriptions and manage your existing ones. Product content can be saved either through the ‘Product Content’ section or directly when you are on the ‘Save a Product’ screen, below the editor. They are the same thing.
Each product content or additional description will be displayed on the product page as a tab. So if you have multiple additional descriptions, a tab will be created for each one.
Start by adding product content and attach it to a product.
On the ‘Save a Product’ Screen
When saving a product, you will see a box named ‘Additional Descriptions’ below the editor where the product description goes.
You can add unlimited additional descriptions here by clicking the ‘Add Another Description’ button and you can remove individual additional descriptions by clicking the ‘remove’ link above it.
You may use raw HTML code inside the text area of the additional descriptions. The HTML code will be correctly displayed when the product is viewed on the shop front.
All additional descriptions saved through the ‘Save a Product’ screen will end up in your ‘Product content’ section which is the global management section for product content.
Result on the Product Page
Having additional product descriptions on your product will split the info up into its relevant sections it was adding in and create new tabs for it. The tabs are automatically added to your product page for the specific product and looks like the image below
The tabs are easy to use and a great way of displaying additional information that you don’t want included in your main product description.
