Some bullet points benefits:
- Be happy to be free of the cumbersome FMBL editor window.
- If you just want to use regular static HTML, you can, too.
Below is a brief instruction of how to add a pre-exiting Application into Page Tabs. There’s also a step-by-step example here: http://www.permadi.com/blog/2011/04/playing-flash-in-facebook-tab-page/ and a general guide from Facebook here: http://developers.facebook.com/blog/post/462
Application running in Page Tab and in Canvas are interchangeable to some extents. You can have the same code that you use in the Applications, running on the Tab and in Canvas. The main difference is the maximum width. Tab pages have maximum width of 520 pixels (because there’s a sidebar on the right-side of the page), while Application pages has the maximum width of 728 pixels.
Go to the Application Profile Page. You must either be a user of the Application or its admin to go the this page. If you are the developer of the Application, go to the application in the developer section and click the Application Profile Page (it’s on the right sidebar on the screen-shot below):
If you are an user, the link is usually located in the bottom left of the page (it will contain the name of the application). Click that link to go to the Application Profile Page.
Within the Application Profile Page, if a Tab is available for the application, there should be a link on the left-sidebar that says: Add To My Page. Click that link and you will be asked which of the page that you administer you want to add the application into.
