    Hi guys, I need help with creating a facebook viral app. Basically what is suppose to happen is when the user visits my site and clicks the download button, it takes them to a post to wall page from which people share and then they are redirected to my download page. How do I accomplish this, help me please!

    Use the FB.ui method to create a feed dialog or just redirect users to the appropriate endpoint.

    Everything you need is right here (even examples):
    Code:

    It works but now I am stuck with another program that I have been struggling with for hours. How do I set it up. My site is in html so do I fill in the required information in the code and then save as html extension and upload to my host?

    This is the code I am using for the problem I said earlier but when I fill out the required parts it doesnt work. When it gets to the part I click the button to take me there, when I click it it shows the code on the page. By the way I saved it as a php extension after I finished, my site is coded in html. Did I do anything wrong? Help me please.

    Thanks,

    Rique

    Sorry I'm not exactly sure what you mean by that. I'd like to help but I need more details. Can you post a screen shot or the code that is giving you trouble?

    As you can see, The code shows on the page that the post to wall page is supposed to show. One more thing, When I edited the code I showed earlier, I saved it as index.html ? Maybe that was wrong?
