    After a user clicks the LIKE button, how easy is it to implement a JotForm Facebook form? I can see that it can be embedded there in any iFrame, but the question is after the LIKE button has been clicked over at Facebook. Maybe this is more of a FB question than a JotForm question, but any insight would be much appreciated!

    Also, is this more of a question on how 3rd party apps work with their iFrame tools over at FB?

    Hi,

    Is your question about how to show a form only if a person liked your Facebook page? If it is, we advise that you use the TabPress Facebook app to embed your form. It has sections where you can enter contents for fans or non-fans of your page.

     

    The downside to using TabPress is that it will display a logo and a link to its app at the bottom of the page content. Also, the tab icon is fixed and cannot be changed.

    If you prefer to not use an app such as TabPress, then you would have to program your own FB application. Facebook Developers is a good place to find resources for the application API.

    Hope you find this answer useful. Notify us if you have other queries or concerns with regard to JotForm. Thanks!

    I see. OK I figured it had more to do with the FB app than your tool, just have been finding groups like Wildfire Interactive, not being able to support your code. In all embed instances. FYI.

     

    Thanks Neil,

    In that case, you would need to report the issue to the application developer. We'll have it tested as well and let you know if it works on our end.

    Thank you for using JotForm!

    OK Neil, thanks for your help, you can test out WildFire's freebie tool internally and see what I mean. it's not JotForm, but maybe there is some small glitch in the code.

    Glad to help, great tool!!

    BTW, here is an example of where I've used your form: http://www.cochran.com/rsvp-subaru, and with great success, nearly 50 recipients signed-up there.
