wanted to add FB LIKE (as opposed to SHARE) button to my blog but the task seems to be IMPOSSIBLE!!! Spend an entire day yesterday trying to do it and all I achieved was a headache ;(
To put the button up I tried the following: http://getsociallive.com/ which does produce a code but I know squat about where to place it to get the actual LIKE icon (and not a link to a like icon, which was the peak of my achievements so far ;( )
I have then tried this link: http://facebooklikebutton.wordpress.com/2011/05/17/how-to-add-a-facebook-like-button-to-your-wordpress-blog-2/ which seemed really straighforward at first cos it had step by step instructions but lost me around #15 (step 15): and even after checking out how to create links in text widgets on wordpress support website http://en.support.wordpress.com/links/text-widget-links/, and followed all the right instructions, it still produced a widget displaying the actual code rather than the icon (as a result you could cilck on it and then a whole new page opened up with a tiny little thumb-up facebook icon, doh!) Mind you I have succesfully created links in text widgets since, so I don't know what the problem when I'm trying to create the LIKE button. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong here please? Otherwise my headache will only increase and I'll probably start losing hair as well :(
Also, I'd like to have the LIKE button under my posts as well as for a whole blog. Is that possible? Both options I've tried so far only seem to result in one or the other... I'm greedy and want both :)
The blog I need help with is gosiasdrawer.wordpress.com.
