Kouguu FB Like wraps the new Facebook Like Button plugin into a customizable WP plugin:

“The Like button enables users to make connections to your pages and share content back
to their friends on Facebook with one click. Since the content is hosted by Facebook,
the button can display personalized content whether or not the user has logged into your site.
For logged-in Facebook users, the button is personalized to highlight friends who have also liked the page.”

Now you can add this social feature without any hard-coding.


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Upload the folder kouguu-fb-like to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


I have activated XFBML in the admin section but the Button isn’t displayed. However iFrames work fine

Please make sure that the theme is supporting XHTML. Open the header.php file of your theme and check the html-tag which should look like:

<html xmlns="" <?php language_attributes(); ?>>
I am using shortcode tags in my posts. Can I overide button options on this level ?

Yes, you can override the following options: ‘layout’, ‘show_faces’, ‘width’, ‘action’, ‘colorscheme’

Example Code: [kouguu-fb-like layout='button_count']

The plugin is not available in my language

You can use the kouguu_fb_like.po file located in kouguu_fb_like/language to translate the short language file with POEdit or another editor.
Please share your translation and mail it to so we can make it available for all users.
