Dynamic Product Tabs For X-Cart

Simplify your product pages and keep the customer close to the add-to-cart button.

Keep your customers close to the "Add-to-Cart" button! Dynamic Product Tabs for X-Cart streamlines your X-Cart product details page using tabbed navigation for the sections of product information. The tabs allow users to view your product information without scrolling way down your page away from where the "Add-to-Cart" buttons are located.

Power Features:

  • Robust admin section allows you to easily add, remove, order and configure your tabs.
  • Can use smarty code and include smarty templates (Very powerful feature!)
  • Choose whether you want your product details in a tab, or to have the tabs below the product details.
  • Default tabs for Customer Reviews, Detailed Images, Recommended Products, Related Products, Send to Friend.
  • Can optionally associate tabs with X-Cart modules so the tab disables when the module is disabled.
  • Prevents empty tabs from displaying. This allows you to have, for example, the Detailed Images Tab that will display only on products with Detailed Images, but not display the tab on those products with no Detailed Images.
  • Link directly to a tab.

Layout Features:

  • Responsive design.
  • Text on tabs can aligned left or centered via admin toggle.
  • Admin selectable color schemes: Black, Blue, Brown, Gray, Gray on black, Green, Orange, Red, Violet, Yellow.
  • Admin selectable tab sizes: Small, Medium, Large.

Additional Features:

  • Multilingual via smarty code parsing.
  • Tabs can be easily enabled/disabled via the admin section.
  • Module itself can be enabled/disabled.
  • XHTML Compliant and default install is compatible with Internet Explorer 6+, Firefox 2+, Opera 9+, Google Chrome and Safari.
  • Product Page is printer friendly and also properly displays the tab contents when Javascript is disabled.

"Product Tabs allows me to include a whole bunch of text, multiple photos, and extra features such as "Send to A Friend" and "Related Products" while keeping the product details screen clean and tidy. This is important as to not overwhelm or confuse the user, and most importantly, keeps the "buy" button exactly where I want it, right under customer's trigger finger so to speak. Previously, for items with lengthy product descriptions, the "buy" button would slip out of view below the bottom of the screen, not good.

My only complaint is that I should have installed this mod years ago, love it!
