    I've seen alot of posts lately where people are asking for working FBML code to make people complete certain tasks to view information on a fan page (become a fan, invote your friends).

    While this is a very useful code for Facebook it is also something that Facebook themselves watch ery closely. The influx of people creating fan pages with the exact same template and code forced Facebook to change the way that the fan pages work and made all the old code redundant. There are also alot more cases of pages being reported to Facebook and deleted because they have figured out the changes and altered their codes to compensate.

    So asking for the code on the forum is like tempting history to repeat itself. As soon as the new code becomes wodespread Facebook will just make the necessary cahnges to make it useless again, which is why nobody is sharing. It's not because they are mean or hate noobs or anything like that, it's because they have either spent good money or alot of time coding the pages to work properly and don't want to be knocked back to square one again.

    Also posting other peoples fan pages as examples of working code will only lead to them being deleted and the creators hard work going to waste.

    The whole theory behind BHW is to find an idea and adpat it to your own ends. If you're not a programmer then your best bet is to either buy the code or sty anf JV with a more technically minded person to get the job done (just be careful who you deal with though, the shitlist is going nuts lately).

    The only place I know of who has a working code is this place "imakeinternet.c0m" (I have no interest of affiliation with them). If you want the code that badly, I suggest buying it and that way you will respect the nature of what you have and not cause the method to get axed again.

    If you want to flame me go ahead, I'm only posting this to hopefully stop the number of new posts asking exactly the same question.

    well that code only allows to invite 8 people and is shared on other forums already but yeh if people start abusing they will change it again.

    is not the code that is illegal or against the TOS... what is against the TOS is making/telling the fans to invite their friends before they can access the information.

    so if your page is legit you shoudn't worry about it being posted here but yet i understand how it sucks to have your page posted here at bhw (we can avoid those extra "Reports"). lol

    just to be clear I don't do any facebook marketing so this doesn't affect me at all, I'm just getting tired of seeing the same questions being asked over and over again and the flame wars that go on because of them.
