    Its not possible to hide the 'wall'- beside that there is no wall anymore and you are talking about the timeline...

    [h=3]You should make A PHP file and create the iFrame. If ever you don't have php and iFrame file you need to see: How To Add An iFrame Application Tab To Your Facebook Page. This will take you through adding an iFrame application tab to your Facebook page.[/h]
    However you should change the .html file with a .php file. Only the extension of the file name has to be altered and do not do something else with the example.
    [h=3]Next thing that you should do is to place a Code into PHP file. After that you had to add this in the part of your PHP file if you want to show a different message for fans and non-fans.[/h][h=3][/h]$request = $_REQUEST["signed_request"];
    list($encoded_sig, $load) = explode('.', $request, 2);
    $fbData = json_decode(base64_decode(strtr($load, '-_', '+/')), true);
    if (!empty($fbData["page"]["liked"]))
    { ?>
    maybe this can help?? :)

    Trance92071,

    As mentioned by Spawnie, it is not possible to hide the Timeline of your fan page (at least not in the way you want). The tactic you are referring to is known as fan-gating and it is only possible for applications attached to your fan page. Bxuhub points out a portion of how to do this however there are many more steps involved. The link he provides contains the information on how to create a tab however this information is outdated since Facebook applications are no longer created in this way.

    To create a fan-gated application you will need to possess more than basic coding knowledge. If you want to fan-gate a page I would suggest going with a third party application such as North Social.

    Here is a link to the North Social Apps,

    http://northsocial.com/apps/

    Wildfire no longer supports iFrames for Facebook however they still offer services for fan-gating a page,

    If you want to take a crack at developing your own Facebook application you can get started here,

    Hope this info helps you,

    Shawn
