Creating An app


I have given some instructions which i do find a little tricky was wondering if anyone could help me its for creating an app for the bebo skin that i been created for a while now need this apps sorted now if anyone can help with the instructions i have attached and make them a little clearer i would be very grateful.


Heres the instructions i have at present


First you need to add the developer app

then you need to create new app-
Application Name* NAME OF YOUR APP

Application URL* http://apps.bebo.com/ADD WHATEVER YOU WANT YOUR URL TO BE

Application Type*WEB

Canvas Display SNML Iframe I CHOSE IFRAME



Who can add your application? Users All Profiles (users, bands, books, groups, etc)

Callback URL*YOU NEED TO ADD A WEB ADDRESS MINES IS http://bebo--skins.blogspot.com/


Remove Callback URL - LEAVE BLANK

Default SNML - ADD YOUR CODE(see below for code) IN THIS BOX

Directory Icon (60x60) UPLOAD A PIC

Lifestream Icon (40x40)

Tiny Icon (16x16)

Application Status Private Beta Public Beta Live - SELECT LIVE

Enter the code in the snml box
its a new code for every skin
this code is for my Always be yourself skin.

<td style="background-image: url('http://i4.bebo.com/047a//17/skin//96...; background-position: right;background-repeat: no-repeat;" width=170><a href=/Profile.jsp?PreviewSkinId=9637504625><img src=http://s.bebo.com/img/vid.gif width=170 height=44 border=0></a></td><td>Always be yourself <br><div class=s><a href=/Profile.jsp?PreviewSkinId=9637504625>Try it on</a> | <a href=/SkinFavorites.jsp?Action=Add&SkinId=9637504625>Add to Favorites</a><br></a></td></tr>

view the skin you want to add to your app and right click on the module header view background image
in the address bar is the URL & the number on it is your skin id. there are 5 bits of code you need to replace
change all the numbers in the code with your own id skin numbers

Change these bits of code for every skin you want to add to app

1. this is the first bit of code to replace
('http://i4.bebo.com/047a//17/skin//96... - change it to the url of your module header so it will be ('MODULE HEADER URL')

2. the next bit
PreviewSkinId=9637504625 - change the numbers to your own skin id

PreviewSkinId=9637504625">Try it on</a><br> - change the numbers to your own skin id

4. change the name
<td width=170>Always be yourself <br> change the name to your own skin name

Add&SkinId=9637504625 - change the numbers to your own skin id

repeat the code for each skin you want to add to your app putting it in the line under your last bit of code

Getting a scrollbar on your app
Put this bit of code at the top before any other code
<div style=" width:350px; height:372px; overflow:auto;">
Change the height to any number you want to make your app as long or short as you like, i've made my app 350px

Putting the new image beside a skin
Put this bit of code
<img src=http://s.bebo.com/img/new.gif width=28 height=11>
in this bit of your code
Try it on</a> IN HERE <br>

Here is a bit of a guide for you.


1. Click the Create New Application link at the top right
2. Enter the Application Name - this is the name you want people to see. Example: "Favorite Birds".
3. Enter the Application URL - this is the Bebo URL that users will go to. This name doesn't have to match the Application Name, and in some cases cannot, because the name you pick might already be in use. Example: "favoritebirds".
4. Pick a canvas style - If you want to use the Bebo SNML markup language, choose SNML. If you want to host an external site in an iframe or use javascript frameworks, then choose iFrame. For this example, we will choose SNML.
5. Enter a description - Type something, but don't worry too much about this now, you can fill this out later.
6. Enable on a profile - Check this box if you want to let users have your application on their profile. In almost every case, you will leave this checked.
7. Callback URL - the location on your server that holds your files. I like to have the directory match the application url I set above, and I end it in a slash. Example: http://myserver.com/favoritebirds/
8. Post Add URL - Leave this blank for now. I will go over how to handle this later.
9. Remove Callback URL -Leave this blank for now. I will go over how to handle this later.
10. Default SNML - this is a way to initially set the contents of all new user's profile boxes.
11. Categories - pick one that fits your application. You can change it later.
12. Icons - you can update this later, so leave it for now.
13. Leave the Manage Test Group checkbox checked and set to Only Developers.
14. Check the I have read the terms checkbox.
15. Click Create Application.
16. It should take you to the My Applications page and you should see your new application along with a bunch of other information. We will use this later, so leave the page up.
