    I need to have a “Like” button on each post. Very important : not all readers are having wordpress account!!!
    For a non-wordpress person if he wants to “like” the posts wordpress in asking for a password and wordpress account.
    How can I remove this problem??
    Thank you,

    The blog I need help with is



    The like button, like every other in-house use only like button (example: Facebook) can only be used by those who have registered username accounts when they are logged in to

    Likes are not page views. In fact, likes and shares are misleading when you are talking about page view stats. Your followers and anyone with a blog who is logged into can “like” and “share” your posts in several locations such as the Reader without ever clicking into your blog and creating a page view stat.



    WP needs to clarify the way Like buttons work. I understand them now, but for the longest time (years) I thought Likes were only coming from people who were actually visiting my blog, including interested passersby who weren’t registered WordPress users. And conversely, I thought my Liking someone’s post indicated to them that I had visited their page. I’m saddened to learn that’s never been the case.



    Is there a problem with non-WordPress members clicking “Like” thinking that it’s the Facebook “like” button? The “Like” button seems like it could be easily confused with the Facebook “like” button.
