Embedding your MapShare Page on Facebook
Now you can promote your next adventure on a Facebook Fan Page and provide track points so your family and friends can follow along!
First, you’ll need to download the free Static HTML app on Facebook to create a custom Facebook tab. To install the app visit Static HTML’s app page or search “Static HTML: iframe tabs” on Facebook. The icon for this app is a grey box with a star in the middle (see below). Select this app and click the blue Add Static HTML to a Page button. Next, select the fan page you would like to add the app to. (*Note: Facebook does not allow Static HTML iframes on personal profiles.)
Once you’ve added the app, a new Welcome tab will appear in the APPS section of the fan page you’ve selected. Click on this tab and select the green Edit button at the top of the page. Enter your HTML, CSS or Java script content and view the layout with the preview button.
To embed your MapShare page, type the following content with your custom MapShare URL found on the Social tab of your Explore account:
The next step is to customize how the MapShare Tab appears on your page. Select the ‘More’ drop down underneath your cover photo and select ‘Manage Tabs’. A menu box will appear, then click ‘Add or Remove Tabs’ at the bottom. Select ‘Edit Settings’ underneath the new Static HTML: iframe tab.
