Hi, anyone no how to allow users to access a CanvasFBMLBasePage without having to add the application?

I tried the MyBase.AutoAdd = False but that does not work.

Excerpt from Facebook Platform Status Feed:
Starting on Monday January 14th, stories that force users to install the application before viewing content will be significantly demoted for display to users who don't have the application installed. This change was first announced on December 18th. More information is available at:

I need users to view a specific page without adding the application. How is this done?

I simply removed the inheritance of the CanvasFBMLBasePage and users are able to access the page without adding the app.

The solution suggested by bflood works fine if the page content is independent of the user's login status.
Another possibility is to check the fb_sig_user POST value.
