    8) next to URL Types hit + to add another row and choose "URL Schemes" now now for item 0 under URL Schemes enter a custom url for our app such as myapp for mine I entered dmmobile use something that no other app will use.

    9) save plist and then sign app like normal. install a adhoc version on your phone and then open safari and type your url for example dmmobile:// and your app will launch

    10) now go to https://developers.facebook/apps/ edit your app and enable "Configured for iOS SSO" & "iOS native deep linking" and then enter your custom url under "URL Scheme Suffix" without the :// part so just myapp (dmmobile)

    Now when you launch Facebook under APPS you will see your app listed "though since running AdHoc version" clicking will take you to your App in the App Store..... So must submit app and wait for it to be approved....

    Maybe VB will sticky these instructions

    ****NOTE: with every single update that comes out for app you will need to remember to edit the info.plist before submit it... Unless vBulletin decides to add a custom url setting/option to the mobile publisher that adds it for you****
