You can install the module for Magento 2 using Composer or you can manually install it using FTP.

  • Run the following commands in your Magento 2 root directory to install the module using Composer.

    # Add the FishPig Composer repo
    composer config repositories.fishpig composer https://repo.fishpig.co.uk/
        
    # Install the module using Composer
    composer require fishpig/magento2-smarttabs:*
    
    # Enable the module in Magento 2
    php bin/magento module:enable FishPig_SmartProductTabs
    
    # Run the Magento upgrade system
    php bin/magento setup:upgrade
  • You can download the latest version of the module from the Downloads page.

    Extract the ZIP file and upload the files to your Magento site at the directory below:

    app/code/FishPig/SmartProductTabs

    When creating the folders, ensure you use the correct capitalisation.

    To complete the installation, run the following commands in a terminal.

    # Enable the module in Magento 2
    php bin/magento module:enable FishPig_SmartProductTabs
    
    # Run the Magento upgrade system
    php bin/magento setup:upgrade

Smart Tabs Ordering

It is now possible to display smart tabs and non-smart tabs (ie. tabs added by layout XML in your theme) in a mixed order. You no longer have to choose between having Smart Tabs as the first tabs or last tabs. To do this, ensure your theme uses the getGroupSortedChildNames method.

// The correct way using getGroupSortedChildNames
$detailedInfoGroup = $block->getGroupSortedChildNames('detailed_info', 'getChildHtml');

// The incorrect way using getGroupChildNames
// This will just add the Smart Tabs at the end rather than using the sort_order
$detailedInfoGroup = $block->getGroupChildNames('detailed_info', 'getChildHtml');

This would usually be in the Magento_Catalog::product/view/details.phtml template but it may be different in your theme.
