Facebook Recommend Widget


This plugin displays a Facebook Recommend (or Like) button as a widget on your site. I created this plugin since I wanted a unique Facebook page to be refered no matter from what page or subpage that the client was on when pressing the Recommend-button. The Open Graph Settings makes it possible to define your Facebook page through the WordPress back-end interface.

The latest version also include an option to have the Send button link to the current page instead of a static URL.

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions please contact me.


  1. Upload the plugin to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Set the Open Graph Settings for your site in the settings page.
  4. Add the Facebook Recommend Widget to your site through the widget menu.
