Lexi, I'll be more than happy to share as soon as I've worked it out for myself - so stand by!

Sorry, hang on, not done yet: Shocked

OK now I'm done.

RE: Has your book been recommended? Let the world know

Right, I've been playing with adding these to a Facebook page. I'm no developer, so the only way I can see to do it is to add an application which allows you to create a new tab in the left hand menu, which opens a new page where the KUF box will live. And of course you can add whatever text and so on you want here as well.

For an example, here's how it looks on my Facebook author page: http://www.facebook.com/davidwailing?sk=app_4949752878

If you want to do this, here's a step by step guide. It's not as complex as it looks!

1) Log into Facebook, then go to the Static FBML app page here: http://www.facebook.com...
2) On the left menu, click on 'Add to my page' and select the page you want to add it to.
3) Go to your page and click the 'Edit Page' box on the top right.
4) From the left menu, click on 'Apps'.
5) You should find the Static FBML app in the list. Click on the 'Edit settings' link beneath it.
6) In the box that pops up, click the 'Add' link then OK. This activates the app.
7) You will then get a small box to add the title of the tab, and a big box to paste in the HTML code for whatever KUF icon you wish,
8) Click 'Save changes'. You should now find a tab on your page's left hand menu called whatever you titled it. Clicking that will open a new page with the KUF icon.

One word of warning! You will need to make a tiny tweak in the HTML code that you copy and paste in for each icon. Replace the first line with this:

<a href="http://www.kuforum.co.uk/ebooks/recommended/" target="blank">

That will ensure that when anyone clicks on the icon, it opens up in a new browser window or tab, instead of displaying the KU Forum slap bang in the middle of your Facebook page!

Ooh, thanks for that comprehensive reply. I will have a go tomorrow when I am wide awake (have been drinking and eating chocolate almonds so am cheerful but not at my most efficient).

Yes - not bad at all. I know I am not to be trusted with chocolate, so do not buy it. But if some kind friend gives me a box, I hoover the lot up in one go.
