Facebook Like Fan Box

  1. Hello, I want to add my Facebook Fan Page Like Box to my blog, when I copy and paste the code into the text box nothing appears it is not working. I think I read something that WordPress doesn't take iframe code? If that is the case how do I use it to do my like box? It uses Iframe. Any help would be appreciated, I am frustrated.

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is socialheavy.net.

  2. No we cannot use iframes on wordpress.com blogs. These are the codes the software will strip out to preserve secuirty as this is a multiuser blogging platform. > Embeds (iframes), Flash, HTML, Javascript > http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

    What you can do is capture an image and put it in either an image widget or a text widget and link it back to your Facebook fan page.
