    I just created a fanpage for a client but I want it to show up when someone goes to the url.

    Like this

    Code:
    [url]http://www.facebook.com/cocacola[/url]
    How do I make the page I just made be the landing page?

    Right now you have to go to

    a redirect from the hosting Cpanel to the facebook page URL will probably work if I did understand your question

    Well I want it so when someone goes to faceb00k.com/ClientsPage I want my new page I just created in fbml.

    For example

    I want
    Code:
    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Pure-Infrared-Saunas/148950205156077?v=app_4949752878
    to be just
    Code:
    http://www.facebook.com/PureInfraredSaunas
    Like the CocaCola page does.

    If you need a custom url, go to http://www.facebook.com/username/

    Under "Manage Permissions", set the Default Landing Tab to your custom tab. Only non-fans and people not logged in will default to this tab. Users who have already liked the page will default to the wall.

    All I see is the information page, (website, Contact number) and a add as friend button

    go to facebook.com/username not your actual user name.. the word username and follow the directions.. you have to have at least 25 fans in order to change the name of your fanpage

    Is it a fan page or profile? You can't set a default landing tab for a profile. If you're on the actual fan page, click "Edit Page" under the profile pic and then "Manage Permissions".

    this might be a stupid question, but have you added the fbml app? I'm not seeing any extra tabs only "wall" and "info"
