Facebook is one of the largest and more popular websites of the world. Althought I do not have an account there, I figured out many of you would be interested in knowing how you can ad a “Like” button to your blog. That’s very easy, just read this recipe.

Open your single.php (or any file where you’d like the “Like” button to be displayed), and paste the following code:

<iframe src="http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=<?php echo urlencode(get_permalink($post->ID)); ?>&amp;layout=standard&amp;show_faces=false&amp;width=450&amp;action=like&amp;colorscheme=light" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true" style="border:none; overflow:hidden; width:450px; height:25px"></iframe>

That’s all. Once the file saved, the facebook “Like” button will be displayed. A live demo can be seen on Visiter New York.


  1. I tried installing the code on the website I’m working on but whenever I “liked” the link, it won’t work. I wanted the Like button to appear on the main page/home page.



  2. This works perfect… loved it

  3. This did not work me either.
