FAQ

How can I add just the button to another area of my theme?

In the Theme Editor, you will place this line of code where you want the button to appear in your theme:<?php if( function_exists('LIKEBOT_BUTTON') ) { LIKEBOT_BUTTON(); } ?>

Keep in mind that manually inserted buttons wont be aligned left or right, though it will use the background-color and button-design option. Generally you should go with automagically-positioning if you’re not very familiar with working with php in theme-files.

Can i change the appearance of the LikeBot-button?

It’s possible to change the customization plugin administration. Logon as an Administrative account and click “LikeBot Plugin” in the Plugins-menu.

Can i change the alignment of the button?

Sure, you can change the alignment under customization in the plugin administration.

I’ve added nolikebot-tag to a post but the buttons keeps showing up?

Be sure that you’ve added <!--nolikebot--> to the top of your post. Adding it further down could cause the LikeBot-button to appear regardless of the tag.

The buttons doesn’t show up and it says [LikeBot Error]?
