I'm about to create my first application, a contest, which is to be used as a tab on a page.

Whenever I do a postback or switch page, I get redirected to my apps full path ( instead of staying in the canvas tab of the FB page. Can I somehow add a parameter, which keeps me in the tab?

I am using FBML, newest Facebook Developer Toolkit.

It seems like it is expected that apps should be running full path. If you look at any app that has some kind of form-feedback (POST), then it is running in full path. Only if the app is for passiv information, the tab is used.

I showed my contest-entries on the tab, and if they wanted to join in, they would be redirected to full path. I think you will have to do this too. Also, FBML has a set of FB-tabs you can use to simulate real FB-tabs.
