I hope that's right! But, I think I've not been clear.
I am using the Custom Tabs plugin for some of my Product. The thing is, it only seems to work in two ways.
1 - I can create a Tab on the Product page. This tab is for that page only.
2 - I can create 'global' tab. This tab can be available on any product page. This is almost perfect. Problem is, I need to select the Tab on New Products before it is available. It is not automatically 'active' on newly created products.
#2 was the first thing I tried to do. I set it so someone can use the Frontend Form to add content to a custom field. Then, I added the shortcode for the custom field to the 'global' custom tab. But, when a new product listing was created from the frontend, the custom tabs didn't automatically 'activate'. So, the content in the custom field didn't show in the listing.
Hopefully, that is more clear.
Is there a way to make the 'global' custom fields to automatically activate in newly created product listings? Even better, is it possible to do this with certain tabs activating in certain categories and other tabs activating in other categories?
I couldn't find a way to do this without paying for a Pro plugin. Even then, I'm not 100% sure it would work. The only thing I could think would work for sure is to do something like what you did with the image gallery and videos fields.
Anyway, please let me know if I'm missing something. Maybe it's something simple I missed or something that can make it work.
I think you made Layout Tabs. I think it comes with Specifications. Not sure how I added it. It was while following a tutorial. The Layout Tabs works great with the traditional Product page layouts. I think its main purpose is to make better-looking tabs. But, it doesn't work if I use a product page layout like Full Width Photo. It adds the tabs to the description area. Also, it always makes actual tabs.
