Add Facebook Like buttons to your site to help visitors share your content in their Facebook friends' News Feeds. This guide demonstrates how to add custom like buttons to pages and blog posts using code blocks.
You can modify your custom code to display a unique Facebook Like button below each of your blog posts. When visitors click this like button, they will like the specific blog post, rather than your site as a whole.
Hi all,I'd like to include the Facebook like button to a survey with multiple language versions. I want the text of the button to be always in the same language as the rest of the survey. Therefore I detected the language and place it to the URL of the source script (). It works, but only in case, the language is selected on some of the previous pages. When I change the language nothing happens, even though it seems that the button is drawn again (it disappears for a short moment and appears again) and I'm able to alert the correct language. I've tried to dynamically modify the size of the button and this works. Therefore I suppose that the problem is that there is already loaded another script with another language. Unfortunately, I have no idea what to do with this. I have read that if I removed the script, the codes would stay in the browser memory anyway. So I don't know how to solve this.Would anyone have some idea
In this article, we will show you how to add the Facebook like button to WordPress, as one of the easier things you can do to reach a wider audience organically. This feature can be helpful to a multitude of WordPress businesses and blogs, which is why we decided to cover it.
In this particular case, we have looked at a lot of plugins with a wide range of similar functionalities including reviewing, like, sharing, or bookmarking posts and pages as well as those that are made specifically for adding the Facebook like button. In the end, we have opted to showcase one of the latter.
The WP Like Button plugin is a very straightforward plugin for adding the Facebook like button on your website. You can choose where you wish to display the like button, including your homepage, all pages, posts, and archive pages, as well as the possibility to restrict the choice further by excluding specific URLs. It comes with four like button layouts with preview available. Finally, while users can simply add the like button using the options provided, the plugin allows for some other advanced uses such as displaying the Facebook like button in custom locations. We will cover all of this below. Let us begin.
After installing and activating the plugin, navigate to the newly created WP Like Button section in the admin dashboard. Here you can find all the plugin settings needed to display the Facebook like button on pages and posts on your website. These settings are sorted into separate subsections, which we will quickly cover.
The remaining subsections concern the creation of the like button. Firstly, you can choose whether the Facebook like button will be shown before or after the page/post content. Then, you can choose the page/post that the button will allow you to like. Specifically, you can opt that all pages and posts have their separate like buttons and like counts, or that all the links allow the visitors to like a singular URL, either your website or some other URL that you specify. Any of these options are useful and come down to personal preference. For this demonstration, we have opted to set the link to the QodeInteractive website and allow the share button as well, as you will later see.
As you can see, the plugin can be used in a very simple manner, by adjusting the settings and displaying the Facebook like button in a predefined location on pages and posts. However, the plugin offers some more advanced uses. These are the [fblike] shortcode and the fb_like_button() function. The advantage of using them is that you can insert the Facebook like button into custom locations, instead of being restricted to either before or after the content of a given page or post. However, they require a great deal of prior knowledge to be used properly. We will try to explain it below.
Of the two, using the [fblike] shortcode is slightly easier and more known to intermediate WordPress users. To display the Facebook like button in a custom location on the website, you only need to insert the [fblike] shortcode call inside a shortcode-rendering element. This element depends on the page builder you are using on your website. For Gutenberg, it is the Shortcode block, Elementor uses the Text Editor and the WPBakery uses the Text Block element, while if you are using the Classic Editor, you can simply insert the shortcode call inside the editor.
As an additional note, the flexibility of any shortcode can be further extended, as it can be included inside a Text widget. Therefore, this shortcode can be displayed in any widget area you see fit for displaying the Facebook like button. Since we have already covered how you can include shortcodes into widget areas, we suggest reading the linked article on how you can insert the [fblike] shortcode into a suitable widget area of your choice.
Finally, the plugin allows you to custom display the Facebook like button by calling the fb_like_button() function. In the past, this was mostly done by directly editing a template file. In recent years, this practice has fallen out of favor and the use of WordPress hooks has become standard. However, as this is a very advanced WordPress topic, we advise learning more on WordPress hooks, as well as what will be covered later in this article.
while replacing the suitable-action-hook-here with an actual action hook. Then, having replaced the action hook in this line of code, to display the like button in a custom location, you only need to place it inside the functions.php file of your child theme or a site-specific plugin.
Adding a Facebook like button to your WordPress website can also be accomplished using custom code. Even though you can achieve most of the functionalities of the plugin described above, this method is a lot more challenging and recommended only for advanced WordPress users. We will explain it below.
As an example, we will explain how you do so with the Custom HTML block the Gutenberg plugin has. As such, copy the code in Step 2 and open a new page or post on which you wish to display the Facebook like button.
In this example, we have demonstrated how you can add the Facebook like button HTML which points to an URL that is important to your website. However, you can slightly tweak this method to add a separate like button to each page/post with a separate like counter instead of liking one external URL only. To do that, after performing Step 1, make a slight change to the previously described Step 2. You need to alter the like URL, located in the data-href attribute of the HTML code given in Step 2. You will need to do so for every page/post which contains the Step 2 HTML code.
But, this is not a fully working example. For it to work properly, you need to replace the comment line and the suitable-action-hook-goes-here placeholder. While the comment line is easily replaced with the HTML code found in Step 2, finding a suitable action hook to use instead of the placeholder is less obvious. In most cases, you should use a theme-specific action hook to display the Facebook like button on all pages and posts.
As with the previous method, having a single URL that can be liked is a lot easier to implement, as you can insert the same iframe code on all your pages/posts where you wish to display the like button. It is what we have done as the example for this article, with the link leading to the QodeInteractive website. But, you can also set individual pages/posts to be liked.
On the other hand, intermediate and advanced users will find a lot of value in the article, as we have covered some of the more advanced WordPress concepts in the article. Furthermore, we have made sure to include tips and tricks that will help with the implementation of the custom code method. Therefore, we are sure that you will be able to add the Facebook like button using either of the methods that were covered. Finally, as the Facebook like button is a means of interacting with and expanding your audience that could benefit a multitude of WordPress websites, we strongly suggest bookmarking this article for future use.
The like button on the social networking website Facebook was first enabled on February 9, 2009. The like button enables users to easily interact with status updates, comments, photos and videos, links shared by friends, and advertisements. Once clicked by a user, the designated content appears in the News Feeds of that user's friends, and the button also displays the number of other users who have liked the content, including a full or partial list of those users. The like button was extended to comments in June 2010. After extensive testing and years of questions from the public about whether it had an intention to incorporate a \"Dislike\" button, Facebook officially rolled out \"Reactions\" to users worldwide on February 24, 2016, letting users long-press on the like button for an option to use one of five pre-defined emotions, including \"Love\",
