Tutorial: Add Facebook 'Like' button to your blog

Blogged by: Kitty on Saturday, September 17, 2011   Facebook comments: comments

This tutorial will show you how to add Facebook 'like' button to your blog so it would appear only in one place in your blog. Please take note that this tutorial is not the tutorial on how to add Facebook like button into each one of the post in your blog. For that tutorial, jump to the bottom part of this page instead.


Log into Facebook.com and go to http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like/

On that page, you will see a configurator box where you can enter your details.

1. In the URL to Like (?) input box, type in your blog URL.

2. Untick the Send Button (XFBML Only) (?) checkbox if you want to display the 'Like' button only (if the checkbox is left ticked, the 'Send' button would also be included).

3. You can change the Layout Style (?) to any style you want.

4. Change the Width (?) to any width you want.

5. If the Show Faces (?) checkbox is ticked, the profile pictures of the people who like your posts will be shown.

6. Choose which Verb to display (?). In this case, choose like.

7. Pick the Color Scheme (?) you want.

8. Choose which Font (?) you want to use.

Once you're done with that, click the Get Code button and a pop-up box will appear. From the drop-down menu on the box, choose your preferred method of implementation. Then copy the codes and paste them into your blog but the codes must not be within the <Blogger> </Blogger> loop.

Save and test it out.



If you want to add Facebook like button into each one of the post in your blog, follow the tutorial below instead.


Paste the following code where you want the button to be displayed but it has to be somewhere within the <Blogger> </Blogger> loop.

<iframe src="http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=<$BlogItemPermalinkUrl$>&layout=standard&show-faces=true&width=500&height=60&action=like&colorscheme=light" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true" style="border:none; overflow:hidden; width:500px; height:60px"></iframe>



Save and test it out.

Hire me to design your blog!

I offer designing and re-designing of Classic Blogger templates. Examples of my design can be found on my portfolio website.

The basic rate for a design starts from $25 USD. The rate is based on the complexity of the design. The more elaborate the design is, the higher the price is.

How to place your order

Send me an email via the contact form and state clearly how you want your design to be. This includes colour scheme, layout (with or without sidebar, number of columns, etc), any extra features, etc.

Your email should be in this format:
Name:
Design: Please give detailed explanation on how you want your template to look like
Preferred payment method: Paypal/Moneybookers/Payza/Bank transfer to Baiduri bank

I shall respond to your email within 3 (three) days. Your order will be placed into a Waiting Queue as orders are processed on a first come, first serve basis.

Payment methods

Payment has to be made to either by PayPal, or Moneybookers.

However, if you choose to pay via (international) bank transfer, be aware that you may be charged for the transfer service.

Other important information

Throughout the designing process, I may need to refer back to you for questions/opinions so do check your email frequently. This is to ensure the design can be done as soon as possible.

Depending on the design, your template make take up to over 1 (one) week to finish. You will be informed once the template is done.

I will send you an email requesting for the payment after the template is done. Once the payment is received, I will email you the complete template along with the necessary files.

All of my designs/templates will come with a credit section. This section must be left intact and you may not remove nor alter them. Resources that come with the designs/templates may not be redistributed or reproduced.

The designer

Kitty

Kitty. 29. Blogger, web design hobbyist, compulsive shopper and bibliophile based in Brunei. Enjoys creating and designing websites, dabbling with HTML, CSS and PHP.

I've been blogging since 2005 (or earlier) though my experience with the internet started back in 2000. My main interest is in web design and development. Other times you can see me wrapped around a book or glued to Astronomy and web design magazines.

The website

This website was created in January 2011 and the domain was purchased by me in late December 2010. Initially the website was intended to house tutorials for Classic Blogger/Blogspot only however over the time it has developed into what you see today.

Several of the tutorials and articles can also be found on Nekonette.com, which is the my main website where I mostly blog about my personal life. Also some of the tutorials here have been moved to that website.
