    Hey Blackhatter,

    Anyone doing custom fanpage business here?
    Need some advice.

    How do you embedded a fixed ©footer in Fanpage

    I create/sell/design many fanpage but most of it can be edited in the fbml section. So some of them simply delete the ©footer in Fanpage or change it to theirs instead.

    I did tried to design it together in the background but they even change the background image.

    Any other ideas? I'm thinking of using ©footer in flash embedded so that they cant change the words but still can delete the footer...

    Cheers!

    There's no way to do that, unless you make a contract with your client which obliges them to keep the footer with your company name.

    What you can do is offer a discount if your client agrees to display your company name as the creator of their page.

    But actually if you make the fanpage using flash application and host/point it to your server, they cant edit it since the Copyright © embedded to the flash page.

    But the cons is that user will have to click on the page in order to play the flash content. :)

    Yeah definitely toss a short clause in your agreement saying you can have it in there. And remind them that it is there after they pay.

    If you have everything set up properly legal wise (terms of use, ect.) and a visible agreement that they are not to remove the footer or alter it in any way, then you could take legal action. I would consult with a lawyer on all the legal binding bs.

    I am not familiar with the FBML and what it supports. I know using normal websites, you can use a mixture of javascript and encoding. Have a code at the top check to see if the footer code on the bottom is present.

    I could probably whip one up if FBML supports javascript codes, or iframe to embed a self hosted page. It wouldn't be 100%, however they would have to know javascript and be a nerd to reverse it.

    Make a simple admin panel for them to be able to edit the content they need to, and setup an application and add it to the fanpage. Host the FBML on your server. If your selling to businesses, most would be happier with an admin panel rather than messing in fbml.

    Thanks!
    I tried this but it seems that for some reason, some client doesn't want a simple thing to get so complicated and documented a black/white things and they prefer the straight forward deal..

    Thanks!
    What if they copy the code and create different page with different name and paste the code and edit it... He is still running away with it :)

    Thanks!
    That might do the trick (hopefully).
    Care to share the code?

    Thanks!
    This i have to agree with you. Many businessman are not familiar with fbml, ajax or even the inline css so they rather hire people and let us do all the work or use the admin panel to easily edit things.

    I came across this static520.c o m last time but it seems that there is lots of bug with the panel.

    Are you using admin panel? do you code yourself?

    If
    Code:
    ©YourCompany
    is the only thing in the footer it's normal that some try to remove it. You should put instead :
    Code:
    ©ClientCompany [SIZE=1]Design/Powered by: YourCompany[/SIZE]

    Sorry Ann Online, there is not enough space for me to put the whole content of my footer in the title section so i just put ©footer :rolleyes:

    Anyway FYI i put ©company, i put in designed, i put in powered by, i put in created by, i put in coded by and put put put... :)

    Anyway doesn't matter what ever you put as long it is still in FBML/HTML or even inline CSS format, they will always able/can/possible to edit it as long as they can go on to the edit page section.... ;)
