That's some progressive code, mate... I'd like to see more of your ideas!
Thanks for clarifying about the iFrame. Now I can put some features on my Facebook fan page.
I can't believe that facebook allows iframes. It means that we can load any dynamic page inside the iframe. How would facebook know that we are not going against their policies?
From: Anne Haynes
I really like this series. I'm a novice programmer and need instruction to make things work. I can read the code, but writing it is another story. You give enough information for me to troubleshoot and that's saying a lot!
From: Mr. Basota
Hey dude, thanks for this nice information. Without this post, i can not imagine that facebook uses iframes.
This is definitely a helpful (series of) post(s). Newsletter sign up box works excellent! Thanks!
I never would have guessed that facebook used iFrames. As a newcomer to the programming industry I just want to thank you for this awesome post. The code really helped not only in this specific project, but in helping me understand other similar projects as well.
WOW!! I was just having a discussion with a colleague about how I wish I could have some sort of way to customize Facebook like I was able to through html with myspace. Your process is precisely what I was looking for, now I have to somehow master the code. Nice photos of leaves by the way. Thank you!!
Been managing my fan page, and this is the first time I get to know that one could customize such page. Thank you for sharing that code.. think I'll have to try it for my fan page.. that's another discovery and if it is possible for me to apply it on my page then I guess I have to share it for my friends. Thanks again for sharing.
That's an awesome bit of code you've given us here. Thanks a lot!
I have been reading a lot lately about FB fan pages but haven't as yet decided to set one up. Are they really worth the time and effort?
is there any way to do that load without a user action ?
From: Steve Marino
Thanks so much for this series of posts (well I'll thank you even more once I've got it set up). I had no idea that Facebook could be customized this way and I've not seen anyone else doing it either.
From: Maritime Lawyers
Thank you for sharing (series) of information pertaining to the possible activities which we could do in facebook. My idea about using facebook is too little and this post made me realize the other alternatives. Now, I have ideas about customizing my page. Thanks to your post!Looking forward for you new valuable information concerning this matter.
Wow, very detailed post on configuring Facebook pages. Good work.
I did know that you can customized your fan page from FB! Thanks for sharing!
Among the social networking sites that we had today, Facebook is my personal favorite because of the fact that you do a lot of things with Facebook. I used to customize and update my FB account daily but I never knew that i can do the same with my fan page. I'm so glad with this new discovery and I will definitely share this to my friends. Thanks a lot for sharing.
Thanks for sharing this information. It's a big help for me to build my fan page and customize my page in Facebook. Maybe after I customize my page, other people will attract and add me as a friend.

An old post, but I haven't noticed the iframe feature on my personal facebook account! Bookmarking this and applying the script later. Thanks for sharing!
From: Petr Macek
Thanks for the post, a bit too techy but I will get through it :), right now I am planning to create my own customized tab so this info comes handy :) Thanks, Petr
Excellent series you have here. This code should be really helpful, thanks so much for sharing :D
This was extremely helpful for me! I hope to read more of your tutorials in the future!
Also, as a side note: do you recommend other social networking sites for businesses aside from twitter and facebook?
Thanks for this cool piece of code....and BTW love the photographs in your pqGallery fanpage/slideshow.
Two questions I have are:
1. How did you get to display your "Contact Form" box below your profile box (and/or to the left of the "static FBML/Landing Tab" space?
2. How did you get a FB dialog box to load with the "Thank you for your comment" message, once the Ajax Form post had completed?
Thank you so much for sharing your very useful instructions :)
I am wondering if you could instruct me what would be the best way to go around adding a like button to the FBML tab.. that is if I would have some image or link that people could like?
Thanks for sharing the code, mate. However, businesses today mostly outsource this task to other companies having an expertise in facebook page development; since it saves them much time and hassle. A lot of cost effective solutions are available in the market.
From: Web Design and Hosting
Those are good info of some useful codes and i am very much confident that these codes will surely be helpful in maintaining the pages. It is very rare that you get such amazing info.
From: anchorage movers
That's awesome, I had no idea you could put an iframe into Facebook. This opens up a lot of creative options!
From: Bulk Solid
Wow, it was quite a discovery for me pal. I never really did imagine that Facebook is actually using iframes. Now, i could customized better my facebook account just like my other social networking sites. I'm so glad you shared it. Thanks again!
From: joe brown
You had written details for facebook. I like it.
Great code thanks a lot! Worked very well for me after trying a bunch of other posts.
hello i used this feature it worked for me but suddenly it is not working now? i haven't changed any code or anything?plz help
Ummmm... I kind of love you right now. This code just saved my a$$. Thanks a million. This is much more reliable than other setInnerFBML codes out there to get the iFrame working in static FBML which won't load on click if set to default page and also won't load if the url with the ?app=380830893... parameters are in it. Very nicely done.
From: Christian Natklub Købehavn
Does this info about iframes on Static FMBL tabs still apply? Or perhaps it has stopped working permanently since Facebook is planning to change how things work and perhaps kill FBML in time, if I have understood it correctly.. Anybody knows!?
This still works. Thanks a lot for sharing it.
This is a great piece of code you've shared...I was able to implement it yesterday and it was working...but this morning I wake up to find out that it no longer is working.
Has anyone else experienced the code working and then breaking without any changes whatsoever? Any work around?
Nice tutorial ! thanks for all ...
Was able to use this code for my Facebook FanPage:

Excellent information! Yes this still works, what a great way to leverage FB. I've added links to posts before, but nothing this powerful!
From: Sandeep Sohal
nice post, I have bookmarked ur site, keep the good work
Absolutely brilliant. I had pretty much given up on IFrames on page tabs till I saw this :)
From: Michael Walmsley
Thanks for a great series of articles. I'm just getting started with FBML and this has been a great help to me. I'm looking forward to implementing some of these techniques on my FB fan page.
Keep up the good work.
Hi, and thank you for a great tutorial! it really helped me.
I have two problems I can't overcome so far...
the first is that when a user click on an element to activate the tab, my app connects to facebook (it is the PHP SDK). after he allows the permission I redirect him back to the tab. the problem is that now he needs to click again on the AJAX activation element, and only now he gets into the app. Is there a way to connect him and leave him in the AJAX?
the second question is - I need to pass a variable from the URL to the application. Is there a way to do this?

that is outstanding work - thanks for sharing it

I was searching for a code like this, and im so glad that i came across your post. It is appropriate to ask if I may use your code? Hopefully the answer will be yes. i`ll get back with details once I manage to make it work for me.
thx for posting.
Thanks for the tips,I'm not good at coding, but I used to use iFrame,to create dynamic tabs
awesome! thanks for sharing.
Nice article. Most people think the only thing you can do to a facebook page is add pictures and post on the timeline. I actually didn't know about this. Thanks again.
Thanks for making my fan page more appealing :)
