I’m trying to figure out how to move the info on the “Additional Information” (modern theme) tab on the product detail page. I’m basically just trying to get rid of the tab and just move the info from that one tab to below the product description. I do like how the data is formatted with the line dividers on the tab. Any help would be appreciated.

thanks

I also want to do this, it seems like that tab is a waste of space, anyone have any ideas on how to do this?

The file you need to edit is, if your using the modern them, /app/design/frontend/default/modern/layout/catalog.xml (for default its /app/design/frontend/default/default/layout/catalog.xml)

On my version it is on line 174, but look for something similar to:

<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"><alias>description</alias><title>Product Description</title><block>catalog/product_view_description</block><template>catalog/product/view/description.phtml</template></action>
                    <
action method="addTab" translate="title" module="catalog"><alias>upsell_products</alias><title>We Also Recommend</title><block>catalog/product_list_upsell</block><template>catalog/product/list/upsell.phtml</template></action>
                    <
action method="addTab" translate="title" module="catalog"><alias>additional</alias><title>Additional Information</title><block>catalog/product_view_attributes</block><template>catalog/product/view/attributes.phtml</template></action>
                </
block>

Remove:

<action method="addTab" translate="title" module="catalog"><alias>description</alias><title>Product Description</title><block>catalog/product_view_description</block><template>catalog/product/view/description.phtml</template></action>

(Don’t forget to clear your cache in Admin if you are using it).

You could also move that tab by just changing the order of the three <action> elements.
