  • Tabs Ordering

    It is now possible to display smart tabs and non-smart tabs (ie. tabs added by layout XML in your theme) in a mixed order. You no longer have to choose between having Smart Tabs as the first tabs or last tabs. To do this, ensure your theme uses the getGroupSortedChildNames method.

    // The correct way using getGroupSortedChildNames
    $detailedInfoGroup = $block->getGroupSortedChildNames('detailed_info', 'getChildHtml');
    // The incorrect way using getGroupChildNames
    // This will just add the Smart Tabs at the end rather than using the sort_order
    $detailedInfoGroup = $block->getGroupChildNames('detailed_info', 'getChildHtml');

    This would usually be in the Magento_Catalog::product/view/details.phtml template but it may be different in your theme.
