Contact Form 7
[Contact Form 7 / Facebok Tab Manager] Loss of form functions in Facebook iFrame (3 posts)

    Hey all. I'm attempting to have a contest entry form on a facebook fan page. I'm using Facebook Tab Manager and have created an app and tab. I'm attempting to use Contact Form 7 to build the entry form. Works great on WP but when I iFrame it into facebook with Tab Mgr i loose some functionality. i.e. the watermarks show up as pre-filled boxes (not a big deal), and the Acceptance box does not require someone to check it before submitting (big problem).

    Anyone have a solution for this. I assume that it is a java/css issue. FB Tab Mgr allows for css to be entered per tab/pge, but I don't know what to change. I tried other contact plugins (Fast Secure, Custom Forms, etc) but they have similar issues and do not allow for much manipulation (I need text boxes in columns). Thanks

    I haven't done a lot with Contact Form 7, so I may be missing some subtleties, but I did get it to work with this approach.
