I set the plugin to execute header/footer codes but it does not parse my shortcodes.
Here is the FB Tab page
Here is the normal page using the same exact code
Not sure I understand what's going on in these examples. What's the content that's output by the shortcode?
It looks like the same content in both examples, but without styling for the links. Is it those button links that are supposed to be output by the shortcodes? Question would be how the plugin you're using there achieves that effect, and I don't have enough information.
Thanks for your reply.
The problem is that the shortcode does not show properly on the FB tab pages like it should on the normal post pages (with buttons and styling)
I am using elegant theme shortcodes (http://www.elegantthemes.com/preview/LeanBiz/?page_id=527) and I want to be able to output those shortcodes in my FB Tab pages if that is possible.
The shortcode is not a plugin, it is part of the theme feature.
So the shortcodes are associated with the theme you are using? In that case, you need to look at the style.css file of your theme and see if you can identify the lines that add those button effects. Add them to the custom CSS for your tab or to the defaults for your tab manager settings.
Your theme's default css is not included in an fbtab because it would often cause undesirable effects like setting the body background color to something that doesn't make sense in a FB context.
Is there no way to integrate an external css file? Do I have to code it in.
I want to do it backwards like include all the theme css then remove one by one the things I don't need.
If I can't integrate an external css, I am assuming I have to copy all the content of style.css into the custom css box. Is that right?
Thanks for your help so far.
Under "More code to add to head", you can try adding
<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://ameisez.com/wp-content/themes/TheProfessionalV1.8/style.css" type="text/css" media="screen" />
That would include the entire css file from your website. You will have to check whether it has undesirable effects in a Facebook context.
That solves everything. :D
THANKS A LOT!
