    You are genius!!

    I still can’t get it to work! It does not give me the option to add to my page, only to add to my page’s favorites. Can this be used on a fan page? Please help!

    Lindsey, are you sure that you have an page created? You have to have a business/organization Fan Page to put install the FBML on. It is free to create a page.

    Hello Lindsey, I think that I figured out what the problem with your installation might be. You must first CLICK “Add to My Favorites Pages” when you first go to the “Static FBML” application page. Once you click that, you are then offered a link to “Add Application to My page.”

    I’m glad this discussion is occurring. On our blog I’ve posted a fairly exhaustive tutorial on installing and using Static FBML which you might find helpful. Used in combination with FBML and FBJS (Facebook Javascript), many things are possible, as demonstrated on the HyperArts Facebook Fan Page. I haven’t yet had time to dig deeper into FBJS, but definitely looking forward to it! Cheers. Great blog here!

    Hi. I too am having problems actually adding the application rather than adding to my favourites pages. I am not being offer a link to “add application to my page”. Any suggestions? Cheers.

    Hello Owen,

    Can you send me a link to your Facebook page? I’ll take a look and see if something looks wrong.
