ShortStack Anywhere With ShortStack’s External Embed Feature

We’re excited to announce our latest feature enhancement that lets you embed your custom Facebook apps on an external website, like your business’s web page or WordPress page.

People are social outside of Facebook, and with external embed, your customers can still enjoy all the ShortStack features you add to your Facebook Page apps, like contests, voting competitions, and newsletter signup forms.

External embed is only available to users on our $75 per month Full Stack Plan or higher, and it requires that a user first installs the app on their Facebook Page.

Here’s how external embed works:

Once your app has been installed to your Facebook Page, open your app in the Tab Designer. From there, click on Manage Installs. There you’ll see your app listed with the Smart URL and some actions: Uninstall, Embed, and Edit Page. Click on Embed.

The following window will pop up. Click on the Enable Embedding For This App button.

ShortStack makes it easy for users to embed their custom apps into external websites

A second popup will open that gives you the embed code and some editing features.

Use the embed code to place your custom app on an external website

Read through the text for insight into setting the width and height of the app and further instructions to configure your externally embedded app.

To embed the app on a website, copy the Embed Code and paste it into your website’s code.
