On this tutorial (and all others I could find) they show this image or similar: additional fbml box

I remember using this in the past for my page: http://www.facebook.com/1919reykjavikenter image description here

On this page I have 2 static FBML links on the left, and I would like to have a third one. However when I tried going into the edit screen, like the tutorial says, I get this:enter image description here

i.e.: the add additional fbml box button is missing.

Is there a new way to do this that's even more obscure than the old one? Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, FBML has been deprecated. To add a new tab to your Facebook page you will have to add an existing app or create your own iframe app.

Starting Friday, March 18th, you will no longer be able to create new FBML apps and Pages will no longer be able to add the Static FBML app. While all existing apps on Pages using FBML or the Static FBML app will continue to work, we strongly recommend that these apps transition to iframes as soon as possible.

thanks, I had a growing suspicion this was the case. Seems I'm getting old. – joon May 12 '11 at 17:10
