Facebook Tab Manager

Makes WordPress function as an editor for tabs you can embed in a Facebook page for your business, campaign, or organization.

  1. Upload the entire facebook-tab-manager folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.
  3. Create/edit content through the Facebook Tabs menu. The editing screen provides guidelines for how to fill in the Facebook Developer form to register your tab content as a Facebook app.
  4. Optionally, copy the fbtab-theme folder to your /wp-content/themes/ directory and modify as desired. Themes for use with Facebook Tab Manager are activated through the plugin's settings screen, independently of your site's theme for website visitors.

Shortcode Options

  • To include a JavaScript widget, such as one of the Facebook Social Plugins, paste it into the WordPress editor in Visual mode and wrap it with [fbtab]WIDGET-CONTENT-HERE[/fbtab]. The shortcode processing function will fix the HTML entities the editor adds on angle brackets and quotation marks.
  • To include blog post or paste content, you can use [fbtab query="QUERY-STRING"] where the query string is something like query="p=1" or query="category_name=facebook-tab-manager" -- see the documentation for the query_posts function for possible values. You can also use a format attribute of format="headline" or format="excerpt" -- see the Tab Manager tab at http://www.facebook.com/carrcomm for an example using [fbtab query="category_name=facebook-tab-manager" format="excerpt"]
  • To include a block of content that should only be shown to people who have yet to click the Like button on your page, use the like=0 parameter, and for to only show something to people who have Liked your page, use like=1. You can do this with either the [fbtab] shortcode or with a variation called [fblike]
  • The [fblike] shortcode is intended to enclose blocks of content, whereas [fbtab] can be used to enclose blocks of inline code such as JavaScript. These variations accept the same parameters, but [fblike] is equivalent to [fbtab decode="0"] where the parameter says not to run HTML entity decode transformations on the content within the shortcode tags.
  • Example [fblike like="0"]IMAGE TO SHOW TO NEW VISITORS[/fblike] [fblike like="1"]FAN-ONLY CONTENT[/fblike]
