Facebook Page Tabs

Facebook Page Tabs

In using Facebook Page Tabs to post a page from my Joomla site onto my Facebook Page, can I post a page from the registered side, or does it have to be on the public side? 

Specifically, I have a Ticket Order Form on the registered side that I would like to post on our Facebook Page (so that a Facebook user can fill out the form within Facebook, without having to enter my site). 

Is this possible with JFBConnect?

Re: Facebook Page Tabs

No, that's not possible. If it's registered content, then the user would need to be logged in somehow to view the page on your site. That's a Joomla restriction, not a Facebook one. There's no way to setup the Facebook Page to log the user into some account on your site.

If the user is already logged in, or you want them to be able to login in the Page Tab view, you can do that. In the Page Tab configuration of JFBConnect, set the URL to a login page on your site and then set the redirect for that login area to the ticket system you want to use.

I hope that helps explain,
Alex

Re: Facebook Page Tabs

Thanks for your response, Alex. 

Just so I have it straight.  If I have sign in with  Facebook enabled, I could put a sign in button in the Facebook Page Tab.  If they already have an Joomla account with my site (with the same email they use for Facebook) it will log them in and redirect to the ticket form within the Tab. If they don't already have an account to the site, JFBConnect could automatically create an account for them and redirect to the Form. 

Do I have that right?

Yes, that sounds right. Just make sure to have Automatic Registration enabled in JFBConnect for "JFBConnect could automatically create an account for them" and set the 'New User Redirection' and 'Returning User Redirection' in JFBConnect for the redirection.
