The “Ticket Selector Embed Code” is simple, right? Just click the “Embed” button in the event editor, after creating an event. The code that appears in the modal window can then be copied and pasted into any web page. However, there is a little more involved than that, including how to add a ticket selector to a Facebook page.
That’s it! Start sharing your embed code with other website and/or blog owners to start getting your events noticed.
Adding an EE4 Ticket Selector to Facebook
This is quick and easy using Event Espresso 4. If you have already created your event, follow the instructions below.
We use the Static HTML: iframe tabs Facebook application to embed the EE4 ticket selector into a Facebook page. You’ll learn how to add this application soon, but let’s first get our EE4 ticket selector iframe embed code for Facebook.
Getting your ticket selector embed code
Adding Iframe App to your Facebook Page
When developing an iFrame application FB needs to be able to access the content securely via SSL.
This means using https:// and that will require that you have an SSL certificate installed on the site you are retrieving the embed code from.
If your content can’t be accessed securely then FB users will get an error message and the ticket selector will not be displayed on Facebook.
Go to your Facebook page and on the search bar enter “Static HTML: iframe tabs” or visit this link https://apps.facebook.com/static_html_plus.
Click the “Add Static HTML to a Page” button.
Adding the Ticket Selector to your Facebook page
Go to your Facebook page and find the Custom iframe app you just installed. It is usually found under More options named “Welcome” tab as seen on the screenshot below. See FAQ section below if you want to change the default page tab name.
There are two options you can choose to display your form on your Facebook page. The first one Content (Public Content) makes it available to everyone, while the second one Leadgate (Fan Content) makes it available only to your Facebook fans, or users who liked your Facebook page. Make sure to publish your page afterwards. Check the following screenshot.
