HI Everyone


Please take a look at http://www.facebook.com/FanPageEngin...48891981830105

That facebook page will allow you to view the contents only when you click on the "Like FanPage Engine" button.

Does anyone here know how to do that?



Any help will be appreciated.


Many thanks in advance

This is not a Facebook Page but a Facebook App.

See http://developers.facebook.com/docs/guides/canvas/ There are some disadvantages of using an App which is it always needs user to give permission before you can do anything.

Hi Sir

If you see the link I provided, it will not ask you to allow anything, but when you click on that big customized LIKE button, it will act as the FB LIKE and post on your wall as "you liked blah blah"

My question is how do we create custom LIKE button because FB does not allow you to customize it.


Pls help

All this can be easily done using just FBML

Just use the following condition in your Static FBML page.

Code:
<fb:fbml version="1.1">
<fb:visible-to-connection>
	Visible to people who like it.
<fb:else>
	Not visible to people who did not like it
</fb:visible-to-connection>
</fb:fbml>
I have not implemented exactly the same here but a lot of it.

Thanks for sharing that.

Few questions for you

1) How did you made your APP as default page on your FB page?

2) How did you hide the other default tabs, i.e Walls, info, etc

3) Can you NOT make a custom FB LIKE button?

Those are options only for members and so Facebook hide them automatically.
