Like Button w/Share & Ratings
My home page shows my full posts and under them is a rating button and share button, but no like button. Readers only see the like button if they select “comment.” I think adding the “like” button in the same area as
Share” and “Ratings” is logical and would be helpful. Many times, people may not have a comment to a post, but would “like” a post if that option was presented at the end of the “article.” Now, you would have to know that you have to select “comment” to get to the like button. I know I often find myself wishing I had a “like” button in real life like that Staples, “Easy” button. LOL! So, again, I would suggest including the “like” button at the bottom of the post with the share and ratings buttons that are visible on the home page or at least include it in the setting options. Thank you!
The blog I need help with is hairscapades.com.
I agree with this. The Like button should be accessible without going into each post!

If you are having trouble showing the sharing buttons on your blog, please check the following:
I can’t see the buttons on the front page.
Make sure to select “Posts and index pages” for “Show sharing buttons on” setting. http://en.support.wordpress.com/sharing/#troubleshooting
Also note the following. Unless you use the P2 theme which is a Twitter-like theme, the front pages of our blogs showcase content and comments are collapsed on that page. The way the comments function is coded into the core of WordPress. By clicking the post title or the comments link the posts on the front page open on their own page where all comments display. This cannot be changed.
In a new blog one does not have many posts or comments. In an established blog if the comments did not collapse on the front page it would become a mile long in no time flat and page loading time is a page ranking factor. We have only seconds before visitors refuse to wait and click out.
