Add Facebook button to your WordPress website.
Plugin doesn't work correctly - like button never appeared. Technical implementation is terrible. Deleted...
From the outside, the plugin "does what is says on the tin": a FaceBook like button is added to the (top,bottom) of every post and page.
However, the technical implementation is not good: in multiple-post pages, each Like button is added as a new instance of the FaceBook API script, which causes multiple inits of that script (one for each button), which in turn causes large loading times and unnecessary overhead.
More importantly, if users have turned off cross-domain scripting, which is a browser security feature that is becoming default in most modern browsers, the button's code causes an error "Blocked a frame with origin Facebook.com from accessing a frame with origin <your site> - protocols, domains and ports must match. This causes the button load to fail completing, upon which the button re-initialises. This cascade of errors takes up full CPU and render your website unworkable.
This plugin puts the like button on pages and posts without giving you the option to limit its placement. I'm not sure why this plugin has such a high rating. I deleted it immediately. It needs more customization options.
Looks absolutely terrible.
And the shortcode wasn't working on the widgets sidebar.
Didn't work for me.
Just what I was looking for. Easy to install and set up - it took me only 5 minutes to get it up and running! I even wanted to tweak the design a little bit and the customer service replied to my query with some CSS code in under half an hour - fantastic!
This is a very good working and simple plugin. A little problem that I had was removed fast, because the support really works and answered the next day with a solution.
Great work and all for free.
Thanks a lot.
(sorry for my german-pidgin-english)
Very nice tool! I am wondering if it is possible to see the names of people/Facebook users who clicked this button on my site. Any help/pointers are appreciated.
Looks great and easy to use. Only missing option is the ability to turn the like button off for pages and have it only for posts.
Nice simple like button, but has problems rendering in Firefox (need to press tab to post comment)
Unrelated to the plugin, but Facebook seems to pull the wrong image with the link. It would be great to have an option in the plugin for no thumbnail.
