This guide will help you display images in the Collapsible tab in your Shopify store.
Shopify Accordion Tabs
Accordion in Shopify is the Collapsible Tab block that you can add to any page (only available in the OS 2.0 themes) to organize your store content. Accordion tabs are mainly used to represent the FAQ content in e-commerce websites.
But nowadays, online sellers have adopted it as a new style to customize the product page and other store pages to make the storefront more attractive and trustworthy. Check out some of the best Shopify storefront examples!
In this article, you will learn how to add an accordion in your Shopify store and convert the content tan so that it can accept all types of content, including images.
Displaying Image in the Collapsible Tab
Let’s take a case: Suppose you have an online clothing store. On the product page, you want to show the Size Chart (image) in the accordion tab (collapsible tab) as shown below:
As the Collapsible tabs block accepts the text content type only, we cannot directly place the Size Chart image in it. For that, we need to make some changes to the theme code file.
Let’s see the step-by-step instructions to add images in the Accordion.
Adding Image to the Accordion/Collapsible Tab
Step 1: Log in to your Shopify store admin.
Step 2: Go to Online Store > Themes.
Step 3: Open the theme code by clicking Action > Edit code.
Step 4: Open the Sections > main-product.liquid file.
Step 5: Search
collapsible_tab in the file.
Step 6: Replace the
liquid. This will change the content type of the Collapsible tab to “liquid”, thus letting you add all types of content using liquid code in the accordion.
Step 7: Save the changes.
Now, we shall go to the theme editor to add the collapsible tab to the product page. Click on the Customize theme button to directly open from the Code Editor.
Adding Accordion tabs to Product Page in Shopify
Step 8: Open the theme editor.
Step 9: Go to the Product page template by selecting Products > Default product.
Step 10: In the Product Information section, click on Add block and select the “Collapsible tab” block.
Step 11: Change the Heading text of the Collapsible tab.
Step 12: Add the
<img src="image_file_url"> code in the Tab content. Here, replace the “image_file_url” with your image file link.
Don’t know where to find the file link?
Go to Settings > Files, and click on the file link. If the image file doesn’t exist in the list, you can also upload your files from here.
Step 13: Save the changes.
