How to Create a Custom Page Tab

Facebook TutorialIn this tutorial, I’m going to show you step by step how to easily add a custom page tab using Woobox.

Please note you must already have a Facebook business page set up. Also, note that you need to do these steps as the administrator of the page and not as the page itself.

Go to Woobox.com and sign up for a free account – note the following steps may be somewhat different because in this tutorial I’m assuming you already have a Woobox account.

On your personal page, if you are on the Timeline, look to the right top and click on “HOME”

On the next screen look to the left sidebar, find App Center link and click it.

Once you are on the App Center screen look again in the left sidebar and right at the bottom, you will find the “My Apps” link – click now there. Depending on how many Apps you already allowed to access your Facebook Account you will see a whole bunch of different apps there. We are looking for Static Iframe Tab. Underneath is the icon

Now click on the icon and you will land on the following page….

The next step is to click on the “Go to App” icon. Look above where I marked it.

Underneath is the page where you will end on.

Click now on “Install Page Tab” – it is the green button illustrated in the above image and it will bring you to the following screen

Choose now the Facebook Page where you want to install your new tab and click “Add Page Tab”

This action will take you back to the Facebook Page where you specified in the above step and the following screen will appears

In Step 1, you will want to Enable the wide mode – so go on and choose Enable

In Step 2 it really depends on what you want to do with this tab. If you already have a website and just want to add it to your Facebook page choose then “URL.”  Your website or blog will then show-up inside your Facebook page whenever somebody click on the specific tab. Alternatively choose Redirect if you want your visitors to leave Facebook to go to your site, squeeze page or sales page. If you want to display an image, choose then image. Choose the HTML option if you have HTML code for a squeeze page or optin form.

In step 3, you can add your own custom Tab Image. This is great if you have a specific theme and want to carry the theme through to every part of your Facebook Page. Remember to create the image beforehand and the size for a Page Tab is 111 x 74 pixels.

The end is in sight! Depending on whether you want to turn, fan-gate on you can leave all this turned off.

If you want to build a list this is where you would insert all the details. Everything is pretty much self-explanatory so I’m not going to explain these features.

There are two more items that I want to touch on and that is the Tab Icon – you can change that if you want to. The image size that you need is 64 x 64 pixels. You can also rename your Tab. Under Tab Name, type your preferred name in. Click save settings and you have now a new Page Tab on your Facebook Page.

However, what to do if everything is not quite, as you wanted it? Easy peasy…

Once again, make sure that you access the specific page as administrator and follow the next steps to alter any settings.

Click now on the marked arrow in the above screenshot. All the page tabs that you have currently are going to show up. Go to the one you want to change. Hover over it in the top right corner. You will see a pencil. Click on the pencil and choose “Edit Settings”

You will land here…

Now you can remove the Tab, change your custom tab image, or change the custom tab name. However, here is one more setting that you can change. Go back to your timeline and click on the Custom Page Tab you had just created. Click on the tab and you will land on your custom page. Now right at the top you will see the following…. Admin Tab Options

There in the top right hand corner is “Settings” and that is where you can alter the whole page you had just created.

That’s it! You just created a custom page tab using Woobox.
