WP-Facebook applications

Description

WP-Facebook applications adds a new menu to your WordPress admin panel, and allows you to create new pages to use as iFrame app tabs on your Facebook pages. When creating an application, you can define a default landing tab that users will see if they are not fans of your Facebook page, and then you create content that will appear once they are fans. Optionally, you can add a Facebook comments box at the bottom of the content.

Thus you can integrate text, pictures, videos, comment forms, hidden for people who are not fans of your page yet.

Thus plugin allows you to create as many tabs as you wish through WordPress.

FAQ

How to avoid the scrollbars that show up when I view my tab on Facebook?

One of the images you have added to your page is too large to fit in the page. All the elements you include in your content should not be larger than 488 pixels.

When viewing my application tab on Facebook, I get a blank page, or a message telling me to switch to a HTTPS connection

You MUST have an SSL certificate for your domain, and once set, fill in the secure URL for your tab in the applications settings. You cannot create Facebook applications without it.

How do I add the application I just created to my page?

When viewing your application settings page, you will see a link to your Application’s Profile Page. On that page, below the profile page, click the Add to my page link. Then you can add your application to any of the pages you administer.
