Adding Facebook Like button to Blog Post

  1. Hello all, I'm a bit of a newb so bare with me please. I'd like to be able to add the "Like" button to my blog postings, not just to the overall blog itself but to the postings as well. I've done some searching and found some information, though it seemed old, about modifying some files, though I don't have the option to modify any files in my dashboard. I'm using the complete free version so I don't know if I'd have to upgrade to get this type of functionally. If someone could point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it greatly. Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is

  2. That's built in. Just go to your dashboard->Settings->Sharing page and add it to your sharing options. And save yourself much time and confusion by ONLY following instructions in the Support docs and the forum here; the other instructions do not apply to WordPress.COM blogs but to WordPress.ORG blogs.

  3. Thanks for the reply raincoaster, but unless I'm missing something I have the sharing option for the facebook there, but that's not the same as the "Like" FaceBook button. Is there a way to get a Facebook, not the wordpress, but the FaceBook Like button on the page? Not everyone is willing to share as much as they are to Like something. At least from what I've seen.

    Also thanks for the info about .com vs .org, I didn't know there was a difference between the two.
