As of August 23rd Facebook has reduced the size of tabs to 520 pixels. The original size was 760 px. With the new reduced tab width many are finding that their multi-friend selector box is now too wide for the new size.

Maybe Facebook will adjust it, likely they wont. The milti-friend selector code currently defaults to 5 columns wide which is 740 px.

To make the friend selection box fit your tab page you will need to specify the cols attribute.

The value must be one of: 2 (which sets the box to 368px wide) or 3 (which sets it to 466px wide).

You may have code similar to:

<fb:multi-friend-selector actiontext=”Join MPORGsoft Fan Page” rows=”3″ showborder=”true” condensed=”false” style=”width: 400px;” />

Adding cols=”3″ or cols=”2″ will make the box fit the new width.

<fb:multi-friend-selector actiontext=”Join MPORGsoft Fan Page” rows=”3″ cols=”3″ showborder=”true” condensed=”false” style=”width: 400px;” />

You can also adjust the amount of rows shown. If no rows attribute is specified the default value is 5 and the value must be between 3 and 10.
