  1. I have tried to make this work in Facebook as instructed but the form does not show up. I get this warning:
    “Insecure urls found

    You should change the following urls to begin with https:// instead of http://, or some browsers will not properly display your content”

    If I do not change the URL, the tab shows no content. If I change the URL to https, no content. All other steps I have walked through several times following each step exactly, but the ticket selector never shows up in the static html tab in Facebook. Wish I could get it to work.

    • Thanks for bringing this to my attention. It looks like Facebook requires a secure connection to the server outputting the embed code. You will need to have a secure server certificate (SSL) installed on your server for this work. I will add a note to the documentation about this Facebook requirement.

      • I felt there was great value in the Facebook functionality. I bought, installed, and implemented the SSL certificate—in under two hours—and the embed works perfectly!
