is it possible to add tabs to existing items without having to overload the complete function which builds that block?
i’ve got several modules accessing this space and they’re interfering with each other.

i really appreciate any help..

You can add tabs just editing or creating an attrbiute set.
Maybe you need another attrbibutes for your prodcuts.
If that’s your scenario, you can create your new attrbiutes. Then, you can create a new attrbiute set, and create a new grup (into the attrbiute set) with your new attrbiutes.
That group it’s gonna work like a new tab.

Hi
I am usnure of what you mean for this, I also want to have extra tabs for each product with technical details, specifications , a pdf tab.
I’ve created one for applications but it doesn’t seem to appear for every product?
I’d appreciate it if you can spell it out , Magento for Dummies smile
Thanks a lot, I appreciate it.

Maybe this isn’t just for dummies.
I recommend you that explore the attributes extension that you can build from the backend.
You can add custom attributes from your prodcuts. For that attributes, you can choose to show them into the product detail.
But, if you want some advanced views for your product, maybe you need to work with your skin.

I understand the adding of tabs in the left column of the admin,
I want another tab int he product detail, currently there is product information, tags and one other, I want to add to this so I can have a separate
specifications tab. That pulls the data from the admin.

Appreciate if you can point me in the right direction?
