Facebook Tab Manager
Linked page not loading in facebook (4 posts)

    So everything was working fine, then for some unknown reason my tab stopped loading, but only one the facebook page. It loads fine if you go to the original url. So I am assuming there is something wrong with facebook, but I can't quite figure it out...

    Here is a link to the facebook page that doesn't load:

    here is the address that is referenced in the app settings:

    http://www.thelucasgray.com/fbtab/?fbreveal=702-711&resize=1&minfilters=1

    It stopped working after I changed out the image, but slowly, it loaded a few times, then quit all together. Not sure what I am missing.

    It looks like you made one of these pages the parent page of the other. I'm not even sure why that would be a problem, but it seems to be messing things up.

    At one point, Facebook wanted you to identify a tab as being in a hierarchy with the "app" or "canvas" version for display outside of a page tab context at the next level up. For that now-obsolete reason, I had a way of defining a canvas as the parent post of a tab. I still have support for that in the tool, but it's not related to how you set up a reveal tab.

    Well I tried starting completely over with creating a new app. Didn't seem to fix it. Might it have something to do with security of it? I just found out my host doesn't offer free SSL certificates...which is kind of lame since I already signed up for two years...it gives me two options, to buy a secure certificate for a year for 15 dollars or set up secure hosting for 4 dollars a month. Do you think either of these will fix my problem?

    You will need to get secure hosting at some point to use Facebook Tab Manager (Facebook's rules, not mine). I don't know how to advise you on the options offered by your host, other than to make sure you get a dedicated SSL certificate not a shared one, and this does typically mean upgrading from shared hosting as well.

    Alternatively, you could sign up for an account at tabmgr.com, a service that I run where I know it's working. $99 a year.
