    Hi baddabing, the submit button should become available when the user logs onto facebook.

    If you want the form available (i.e to have a submit button) to non-facebook users, you can use a Free Text (HTML) field, from the Power Tools submenu to embed aSubmit button manually using this code:


         <input type="submit" value="Submit" /> 


    Hope that helps.

    Hi baddabling,

    Non-Faceboook users are not able to see Facebook friends or account details for obvious reasons. That's why the alternate Submit button (the standard grey button) as suggested by fxr above should also be placed.

    Hope this sheds some light to your concern. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

    I have added the link for the submit button for all non facebook friends, and it works great. My concern is still that all my facebook friends that have "liked" my page are unable to see a submit button. It just shows a shadowed "log on to facebook" staying, which they have already done.
