Facebook application in tab

The point is:
- I've got wakacjones.TV videocast
- I've got Facebook page I publish updates regularly
- I've got separate HTML file with list of the upcoming events (it's very simple, no database needed)
- I would like to include this list to my index.php file on main website, and include this list in one (default landing) tab on my Facebook page

As the name suggest - static FBML - is static and cannot load data from other sources. Solution should be simple - create a simple aplication and pin it to the Facebook page - but I don't know how to do it...

Useful resources I found:
Anatomy of a Facebook App
Tabbed Profile

  1. I replied to your question on FB.. Facebook APIs really bad, nothing is well documented and you have to search, try, and try and try for weeks to make just simple things or to fix some weird things caused by the tons of bugs there.

    If I work for facebook I would ask for a REBUILD!! yes, they need to rebuild it I swear! LOL

  2. Thank you for great answer, right now I'm replying on dev forum and editing this post a little :)
