Hello, and welcome back. In this video I’m going to be showing you how to install a Static HTML (Iframe) app, and basically an iframe app allows you to embed any webpage into this particular tab on Facebook. So once you’ve installed it you can then customise it or edit it, and you can use various programming languages such as HTML, CSS and Javascript. So to install the app you go up to the top and type in “Static”. Now normally when you type in “Static’ it brings it up. It will say, ‘Static HTML: iframe tabs”. So if that comes up, just click that one. And it’s grey box with a star in the middle, so you want to click “Add Static HTML to Page” and then you need to locate the page that you want to add it to and click on that one. And then it’s going to ask you if you want to add the Static HTML, and we’ll click on that. And voila! There we go. That’s been added to this page. Now one way of knowing for sure that you’ve installed it, is to just scroll down, just below the avatar, and you’ll see, it’s normally “Welcome” it says, but obviously you can change the name of it at a later date. So if we click on the “Welcome” tab, and it loads up, there were go. You’ve got two different areas. So the first area you can programme HTML, CSS or Javascript, but this is for non fans so when people come to your page this is what they’re going to see first. And the one below it is optional, but this is for fan content. So imagine they’ve come to your page and they’ve seen the information here, then they’ve clicked “Like” and as soon as they’ve clicked “Like” then they come to this information that’s been programmed here. Now once you’ve put in the information you can preview it and you’re good to go. And in the next video I’m going to be showing you how to customise your iframe tab.
