Tabs are an excellent way to add much more content to a crowded page or to categorize the data in a particular way. We have the addon installed here on our home page but it can be installed on any page of the shop. It is also possible to add a link
, or any html formatting
. If you are looking for a way to improve your oscommerce shop, for both your customers and the search engines, this is one of the best.
p.s. - For a better experience, we suggest you include the Tabs Data Control
addition since it will make editing the text much easier.
Tabs are convienent to your customers since the data can be easily categorized. For example, if the tabs were on a product page, there could be a tab for the description, technical details, pricing and so on. Since the data is presented in a more condensed form, it is less confusing to your customers.
Tabs are an excellent choice for the search engines. The more text there is for the search engines, the happier they are and the shops rankings will usually improve as a result. The text in each tab is presented all at once so they see it all when they visit the page the tabs are on. Many oscommerce shops suffer from a lack of text. Especially when a purchased template is used since the designers don't care how well your shop ranks. Installing this addon is one of the easiest ways to improve that situation.
This addon can be installed on any page of your oscommerce shop. The text for each tab is controlled via a language file, unless the Tabs Data Control
is also ordered. The tabs have to be setup for the page they are on and the default installation is for the product pages. But we can install it for any page.
