    Note: “Static HTML: iframe tabs” is one app which can be used to add Newsweaver’s HTML sign up code to your Facebook page. To add any html code to your Facebook Business page you will need to use a Facebook app. The app highlighted above and all others mentioned in this article are not connected to Newsweaver in any way and we cannot provide support for this or any other app used.  We are also unable to control any changes to this app.  

 

  1. On the App Page click ‘Use Now’.
  2. On the window that displays click ‘Add Static HTML to a page.

 

  1. You must have Admin Access on at least one page to add this app.  You will be prompted to select which page you wish to add the app to.

 

  1. Now when viewing your Facebook page you will see a static HTML Welcome icon at the bottom right of the page.

 

  1. Click on this icon. This will open the new page tab.
  2. Click Edit Tab.  This will open the Static HTML page editor.
  3. Paste your code into the Content, index.html window.
  4. Click Save & Publish.

 

  1. You can now Preview your tab, to see how your Sign up form appears.
  2. Click on Settings to change the name of your tab (By default it’s called ‘Welcome’).  Under the settings tab you can also view instructions on how to change the icon for your tab.
  3. When you are finished click the Done Editing Tab.
  4. This will bring you to the next steps screen. Click Tabs on the left hand side, to view your tab, and you will see a link to View Tab on Facebook.
  5. Click this link to return to your page, and you will see your new tab in place.Messages that may appear:
“You do not admin any pages for which this application can be installed” This means that you do not have the admin rights for any Facebook business page(s) and therefore cannot add the code. This code cannot be added to personal Facebook pages.
You may see the message “Broken urls found” when pasting your content into the ‘index.html’ area. The exported sign up code will work if copied exactly from Newsweaver, so you do not need to change any links as advised by this message.

Note: We recommend testing your form once it is published on your Facebook page.
