Another Facebook iframe question

17 replies
I followed the instructions in Paul Gram's excellent video. Everything seemed
fine untilI click the tab to bring the page into the iframe... then I get the following:

*** snip ***

Method Not Allowed

The requested method POST is not allowed for the URL /ductales/index.htm.
Apache/1.3.33 Server at nothing here Port 80

*** snip ***

This is puzzling to me because the POST command refers to forms
if I'm not mistaken and there is no form involved. My hosting company
doesn't seem to know what the problem might be.

The page I'm trying to bring into the iframe is located at

http://www.myprivatesites.info/ductales

Anyone have an idea what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks...

      I must have missed something in the video... is there some code
      I grab from Facebook that needs to be added to the page?

    OK... I went back and watched Paul's video again.

    I don't see anything about adding any code to the page.
    If you just mean the html code to build the page there
    should be plenty of it there already... I doubt that's the
    problem.

      It's not my server. I host this particular domain
      with Go Daddy. I've been on the phone with them.
      They say it's nothing at their end. I'm sure there are
      some facebook iframe pages hosted at Go Daddy so
      I'm inclined to agree with them.

    I wrote up a post on installing the new Facebook iFrame applications. I also coded a free CSS/HTML design that you can customize if you or anyone else is interested.

    facebook makes a post request to your iframe app, html pages by default do not accept post header type , therefore you get an exception.

    You need to change index.html to index.php

      @jkennedy You forgot this bit...

      1) you can rename your htm page to something php,asp etc.
      2) you can configure your webserver to allow post header for html pages.

          The solution to this post was so helpful, thank you! I however, have a WebSite Tonight with GoDaddy and that account doesn't allow users to manually edit the file names from .html to .php etc.

          To get around this, users with a WebSite Tonight Account must add a 'hit counter' to both their home page, and the page they wish to specify in the iFrame app. You can add this via the Insert > Widget option. This changes the file to .php. It's not the best solution, but it's a workaround.

          Happy iFraming!

    Yes changing the page to php should work. Of course stating the obvious you must have your iframe app that you have created setup properly and pointing to the correct pages and url's. It's very touchy so make sure you carefully check all that info.
