Integration in Facebook

Hey guys,

I'm trying to integrate my forum (http://toneelgroepantwerpen.be/forum) into my facebook-page (https://www.facebook.com/ToneelgroepAntwerpen), it's not really working yet though!

I followed every direction here: http://vanillaforums.com/blog/help/embedding-a-vanilla-forum-on-a-facebook-page/

But to no avail! The static page still comes out as blank! What do I do?

Thanks so much in advance!

    Ok , this all depends on what html app you chose to use.

    ★ Thunderpenny Static HTML works for me

    Sometimes if your content is not from https Facebook messes with it and it does not display correctly. Also since the html app is an iframe not all browsers support it.

    Use the iframe for the forum instead of the js . to embed

    it should look like this when you embed in a facebook page

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="https://yoursite.org/gfz10.png">
    <style type="text/css">
    body {
    background-image : url(https://yoursite.org/gfz10.png);
    background-repeat : repeat;
    background-color : transparent;
    a {
    color : white;
    font-size : 20px;
    font-weight : bold;
    a:hover, a:hover image, a:link:hover, a:link img:hover {
    color :red;
    font-size : 20px;
    font-weight : bold;
      <iframe id="vanilla78730" name="vanilla78730" src="https://www.yoursite.org/Forum/index.php?p=/&amp;t=16666917096803&amp;remote=https%3A%2F%2Fadmin.statichtmlapp.com%2Ftab%2F1%2Fadmin" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" border="0" width="100%" height="1000" style="width: 100%; height: 1000px; border: 0px; display: block; "></iframe>
  • Hey thanks for your reactions, how do I generate the Iframe, or should I write it myself?

    You can embed the js somewhere and then inspect the source code to pick out the iframe for vanilla..

    try embedding here http://www.practiceboard.com then look at the source code and extract the iframe code.

    or you can use an extractor


    just paste the url of the vanilla embed js file src .

  • Thanks, worked!
