The application for Facebook isn’t working. What to do?

When the 123FormBuilder application for Facebook is not added to your Facebook page if accessed at its normal URL (https://apps.facebook.com/contact-forms/), you can use a workaround.

Access the First Application at the following link (simply click on it):
https://www.facebook.com/dialog/pagetab?app_id=206429986046631&show_error=true&next=https://apps.facebook.com/contact-forms/

This special URL forces Facebook to add the 123FormBuilder tab to your FB page.

If you are using more than one form on the same FB page and you keep encountering the same problem, here are the special URLs for our second, third, fourth and fifth application for Facebook:

Second Application
https://www.facebook.com/dialog/pagetab?app_id=166242356773054&show_error=true&next=https://apps.facebook.com/contact-forms-second/

Third Application
https://www.facebook.com/dialog/pagetab?app_id=157025404377057&show_error=true&next=https://apps.facebook.com/contact-forms-third/

Fourth Application
https://www.facebook.com/dialog/pagetab?app_id=231290510217375&show_error=true&next=https://apps.facebook.com/contact-forms-fourth/

Fifth Application
https://www.facebook.com/dialog/pagetab?app_id=120662901351493&show_error=true&next=https://apps.facebook.com/contact-forms-fifth/

  2. Receive this message when I try to add my form on Facebook and can’t find info your site.
    “This page does not have permission to install the custom tab”.

    Thx

    1. Hi Heather,

      This is due to an update from Facebook that no longer allows publishing a custom tab if your page has less than 2,000 followers. In this case you can include the direct link of your form within a post, so that users can still access and fill out the form.

      Thanks.

  3. Trying to add a third form to Facebook and using the Third link but get this error message: App 123FormBuilder Application Third is unavailable
