Facebook I like Button Plugin

`Facebook I like Button Plugin` is a light implementation of the new Facebook – I Like Button social plugin.
It implements the iframe version and not the XFBML.

The Like button enables readers to make connections to your pages and share content back to their friends on Facebook with one click.

Options available:

  • Dimensions: width, height
  • Choose plaftorm: iframe for lame, XFBML for geeks
  • Choose disposition: top, bottom
  • Styling to the DIV around iframe
  • Layout Style: standard or button count
  • Fonts: tahoma, arial, verdana, lucida grande, segoe ui, trebuchet ms
  • Color Scheme: light or dark
  • Show/Hide faces
  • Verb to display: like or recommend


  1. Download the plugin from wordpress plugin directory.
  2. See the installation instructions bellow


  1. Upload `fbog-ilike-button` directory to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the `Plugins` menu in WordPress
  3. Configure it in `Settings` > `FB I Like Button`


Q: Where can I change the options?

A: Go to `Settings` > `FB I Like Button`.

Q:  How can I force the I Like Button to appear/disappear in individual posts and pages?

A:  You can overide the settings as per page/post by typing the following code in your post/page: `<!–fbilike–>` if you wish to display the button or `<!–nofbilike–>` if you wish to hide it. Make sure you that in the HTML editor and not the Visual Editor.

Q: How can I position the the button to left/right relative to content?

A: Use the option DIV Style and style the div around the iframe. Eg. if you want to position the button to the right write something like `float:right; margin:0px;`. But pay attention not to mess other elements and their position. Use clear:top,bottom, left carefully.

Salut! Am un blog foto. Pot pune butonul pe fiecare poza dintr-un post sau doar pe post in sine?

I am in the process of creating my new site with an integrated wordpress blog. I use your plugin on the blog. I’d like the Like button to show right next to the title of each post, rather than below the author name. Could you help me as I don’t see an option to move the button earlier in the HTML?
Thank you very much for any answer!

Nice plug in, simple and it validates!!  :D
In this article, you have <!—fbilike—>, this is incorrect, it should be <!–fbilike–>, same for nofbilike, you post has 3 dashes, but it only works with 2 dashes.
That being said, I suggest a different way, using “custom fields”.  Edit the plug in so that it responds to a keyword “showfbilike” and it’s value being “true” (force it to show) or “false” (force it to be hidden)
This would avoid forcing the user to alter the edit mode they are using.

sounds nice ted, for me it does not work at all with <!–nofbilike–> or am I writing something wrong …?
The custom fields way sound nice too, how do you edit the plug ???

Very nice plugin. I particularly like the <!–fbilike–> / <!–nofbilike–> option.
I would also like though to be able to manually add the button for example within the content of a post using something like [fbilike] or so. Another plugin like the “WP Facebook Like” has that option, but then again it doesn’t have your options.

After I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when
new comments are added- checkbox and from now
on every time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment.
Is there an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?
