    Do i need a SSL host to make WPBOOK work with my WP site, facebook page and facebook app?

    Even tough i put http:// on canvas page in the fb app and save i get https://
    FB displays something about secure urls required from october 1st.

    I can see the content when typing, http://apps.facebook.com/posta-till-fb in browser. But when i try to view it from my fb page tab i get a blank page.

    Yes, SSL is required for WPBook.

    Or, more accurately, constructing a Facebook application is required for WPBook and Facebook now (since Oct. 2011) requires that all Facebook applications exposing a canvas page or page tab view provide an SSL version of their urls, and it has to be functional.

    See http://www.openparenthesis.org/2011/10/04/the-future-of-wpbook and http://www.openparenthesis.org/2012/01/01/wpbook-and-wpbook-lite-more-options-more-flexibility for the alternative, WPBook Lite.
