How to Create Facebook Templates with Wix

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Website building platform Wix has released a Facebook application for the creation of Web pages that can be embedded inside Facebook Fan and Community pages. For those without any familiarity with the Facebook Markup Language (FBML), the application could prove quite useful.

Currently, you can only publish one template per Facebook account. However, you can always designate another Facebook user to be an admin of your Fan Page in order to publish more templates. If you try to publish another template, your first template will be overwritten. You can use this to your advantage to change your embedded site on Facebook.

A Wix Facebook Fan Page supports all Wix content except HTML and eCommerce. An eCommerce feature will be released in the very near future!

To choose a Facebook template:

  1. Go to Wix’s Facebook Templates page.
