Do you already miss FBML tabs? We certainly don’t! It was a very limited interface that didn’t allow much flexibility. Since FBML tabs have been officially deprecated by Facebook last month, many people have sent us emails asking us: “What do we do now? How can we create dynamic custom landing pages like we used to?”. One word for you all: HTML! Yes, there are now a bunch of HTML apps for fan pages out there that you can set up on your page. We tried a bunch of them during the past few weeks, and we were literally amazed by this app called Static HTML iframe Tabs.
Static HTML iframe Tabs is a free app developed by Timothy Mensing & Jason Padvorac. When you install this app on your page, you get 2 mini HTML editors, one for “General Content” and one for “Fan-Only Content”. Perfect for creating incentivized pages like you used to do in FBML! The great thing about this app is that it lets even include external CSS files. You don’t know anything about HTML/CSS? Well you can always use your favorite WYSIWYG HTML Software such as Dreamweaver or Frontpage, then just copy-paste the HTML code into your tab!
Timothy & Jason definitely did a great job with this app. We guarantee you that once you try it, you won’t miss that old rusty FBML app anymore!
