You can only add a custom tab if your Facebook page has 2 000 or more likes. Visit Facebook – Page Tabs for more details. If you meet this criterion, please proceed below.

Adding the Iframe App to Your Facebook Page

First, you must add the Custom Iframe App to your Facebook page to create the custom tab for your form. Here are the steps:

  1. Go to Static HTML: iframe tabs.
  2. Click the Add Static HTML to a Page button. The button will open a dialog tab.

Adding Form to Your Facebook Page

Since you now have the app installed, let’s proceed with adding the form to your Facebook page through the custom tab added by Static HTML app. Here’s how:

  1. While viewing your Facebook page, click the More dropdown from the list of shown tabs.
  2. Click Static HTML [12] from the list. You can change this label later.

  2. Paste the iframe codes to the index.html box.
  3. Click the Save and Publish button at the top part of the page. You should have the form added this time. Go back to the custom tab of your Facebook page to confirm.

Editing the Custom Tab Name

Facebook hides the option to edit the tab name from your page’s view and settings, but you can still do it with a single parameter added to the vanity URL of your Facebook page. This one’s a bit tricky, but as long as you follow the steps, you should be able to change the tab name or label. Let’s do it!

  1. Append the parameter settings/?tab=apps to your Facebook page URL. The URL should look like the following:{your_page}/settings/?tab=apps
  1. Click Edit Settings from the Static HTML app. The link will open a small popup.

  2. Click the Save button. There is a small loading icon as an indicator. If it stops loading, that means Facebook saved the changes.
  3. Finally, click the Okay button to close the popup. Visit your page to confirm the changes.

Removing the Custom Tab

You can easily remove the custom tab by appending same URL parameter settings/?tab=apps to your Facebook page URL but this time, do the following:

  1. Click the X icon on the far right side of the custom tab.
  2. Click the Yes button to confirm. That’s it!

Adding a New Custom Tab

Facebook does not allow you to add the same iframe app twice on the same page, but Static HTML has reserved apps for doing this. Go to Thunderpenny – Add Tab to learn more.

Editing the Custom Tab

If you want to change the form, you must edit the custom tab. To edit:

  1. Access the custom tab added by the Static HTML app.
  2. As an admin of the page, you should see the Edit App button at the top of the form. Click it. The button will redirect you to Static HTML website, where you can update the tab settings and change the embed codes.
