Facebook Page - Like button?

  1. so I created facebook page with the same name as my blog. when I did that, facebook gave me some code that I suppose I'm supposed to be able to use to put a FB Like button (and link?) directly on my blog. Can somebody explain how to do that? Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is charleskruger.wordpress.com.

  2. If it's the Badge code, which it probably is, put the code in a text widget.

  3. What is a text widget?

  4. I'm also having a difficult time adding the Facebook Like Box to my WP blog. I have a FB Page set up and published with my blog name. FB gave me a code to copy into a text widget on WP. However when I have done this, twice now, all I get is the actual code from FB, copy and pasted into my WP blog. There is no Like Box just the code.

    What am I doing wrong? Do I copy the code from FB in html5, xfbml or iframe?

    Thank you.

  5. FB gave me a code to copy into a text widget on WP.

    I'm sorry but you cannot use that code on a free hosted WordPress.com blog. Note the restricted codes include iframes. You can use the Facebook like box widget found here > Appearance > Widgets > Facebook like box widget. Note also that You can post a Facebook badge in your sidebar. http://en.support.wordpress.com/facebook-badge/

  6. Thank you @timethief. I actually figured out the Facebook like box widget, after I posted this question. Sometimes I don't see what's infront of me. Thanks again.

  7. You're welcome and happy blogging. :)
