    Please provide proper/current instructions for creating an App for a Facebook Submit button via JotForm.

    Specifically, I am speaking of the in-form instructions where you can click "Help me get an App ID" (or similar wording). The step-by-step is the old App creation steps and the new steps are different and must be very specific to work properly.

     

    Thank you.

    Glad to hear that.

     

    I had the old FBML code (without FB submit button) for a contact form as a FB Page tab.

    I see that the FB Integration could also be used outside of FB - I didn't realize that when trying to get it to work.

     

    I want a FB tab with a contact form in it. How can I setup a JotForm form as its own FB App? In other words, what do I put in the fields required when setting up an App to be used as a Page Tab?

     

    Thank you.

    Re: http://www.jotform.com/help/123-Adding-forms-to-Facebook-Facebook-Developer-Method-

    -FB started requiring SSL / HTTPS in October 2011, but that article was written in November 2011.

    -mentions 'no third party application providers' as a benefit, but then mentions 2 third-party apps for integrating into FB page, both of which add their own link at the bottom of any tabs you create.

     

    I think JotForm should have its own FB app where you just enter the form ID or have a shortcode or something.

     

    Anyways, I'll just iframe it to a new page on my web server and host it there. Not a big deal.

     

    Thanks for JotForm.

    My apologies. That URL I posted was different than the one(s) I read...

    Anyways, I couldn't create my own PHP/HTML page on my server and use your form because the FB Submit button is tied to your URL (jotform.com) and FB doesn't allow that... I didn't try the Embed button though (see below).

    But the URL I included above was actually the answer to what I was asking for. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

    All in all, I found a link to http://apps.facebook.com/iframehost/ - which doesn't have branding. So that's cool.

     

    HOWEVER, for some reason, the left-hand side of my Embed options are greyed out so I can't click the '< Embed >' button (from within the Embed Form menu) - can't choose this option: http://content.screencast.com/users/fffxr/folders/Jing/media/c2ce6797-582a-4a38-81d1-f35eb236d279/2011-11-07_0912.png

    Apparently that doesn't work either... same error message from FB:

    Given URL is not allowed by the Application configuration.

    RE:

    You can't have 'Facebook Integration' enabled on your form and your form on a tab on a facebook page.

     

    Well that answers my question.

     

    Don't you think you'd want that though?

     

    Anyways, thanks.

    It's not accepting the ID that is correct at FB. What do I do, as I've reset this a number of times.

    No, when I add it, it does nothing, the next time that I click on FB integration, is there some other step I should be looking out for here?

    This is far too confusing for your average user. I'm technical and very confused.

    Please make this process easier.

     

    Thanks!

    OK, I suppose it's installed, am I supposed to be seeing some option via JotForm or a JotForm app at FB? Confusing....

    Ahhhh it did work, just kind of an odd process. Figuring this out, like this.
