Recommended WordPress Plugin – Facebook 'Like' Button

Since Facebook announced that they were offering the functionality for website oweners to have 'Like' buttons on their non Facebook content, the race has been on to develop a plugin.

We've found two so far.

  • Facebook Like WordPress Plugin V1 (link goes directly to zip file) – this puts a Like button at the top or bottom of your posts (we've put it at the bottom( of ours as you can see). You can change the size and a few other options, which makes this one our favourite. You can find out more about this plugin on this blog post written by the creator.
  • Facebook Like Button Widget – this installs a widget that you can then place in your sidebars. It works well on some blogs but was too wide for our sidebars unfortunately and it can't be changed as far as I can tell.

So now Facebook members can 'Like' your content when they visit your website!

Let us know if you install either of these plugins so we can pop along and take a look!

  1. I tried but I WordPress tells me that the installation failed as it created a fatal error…

  2. Mmm, silly me, duplicate plugins.  More coffee…

  3. Hi Nikki
    Thanks for the info. I have installed the plugin, at he moment it is alongside the Buzz icon. Not sure whether it looks right.

  4. Ian I think it looks better once someone actually clicks Like (which I did, and of course you can like your own posts too!)

  5. All sorted now Emma?

  6. Saw your little avatar. Thanks for that.

  7. This merely would go to substantiate that Facebook . com has accomplished a lot more than the majority of people originally projected.

  8. Thank you for taking this possiblity to discuss this, I’m strongly regarding it and I benefit from garden greenhouse structures this subject. If at all possible, while you gain data, please update this site with new information. I’ve discovered it extremely useful.

  9. Thank you! Have been looking for something like this.
