How can i add a very basic Like Sidebar Widget? (1 post)

    hello

    i've installed countless Facebook Like Widget plugins, of many kinds from many authors.

    i can't find one that, works, or, works and is exactly what i am looking for..googling "wordpress Like widget how to" or along those lines brings me no where.

    a good bunch of them end up breaking my entire wordpress.
    always getting this sort of error:
    "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /homepages/45//htdocs/pmwp/wp-content/plugins/facebook-like-button/inc/rec_widget.php on line 11"

    i no nothing of scripting so even when i tried to look up that "line <number>" in notepad and tried adding/removing the "}" in the code it never helped anything.

    can anyone help me find a very basic/simple "Like Widget" i can add to my WordPress, i use Mandigo Theme 1.42

    i want it to be in the theme's Sidebar, just showing the Like Button and number of Likes..without breaking my site.
    i do not want any Like buttons in my actual blog posts, just on the Sidebar for the Home page basically..to "Like" my main site in general.

    THANKS FOR READING and hopefully responding friendly-ly.
    Cheers.
