Me Likey – A Facebook Open Graph Plugin

Description

Me Likey gives you the ability to display Facebook “Like” or “Recommend” buttons on individual blog posts and pages. Me Likey allows you to add a subset of Facebook’s Open Graph API to your page, including all necessary META tags for proper like button support.

There are a number of configuration options and customizations available give you complete control over where the button is displayed as well as how it is styled.

Features include:

  • Ability to enable/disable the button on a per post (or page) basis directly from the add/edit post screen.
  • An AJAX preview mode is now available in the options for a quick preview of the button.
  • Added a “default image” option to the admin to be used when no post image exists.
  • Automatic modification of the HTML namespace parameters as required by Facebook.
  • Additional options have been added to the configuration page; height, layout, show faces, and the ability to define your own custom class for the iframe.
  • META description field attempts to pull from the_excerpt, then tries a substring of the body, and last grabs your description as a fallback.
  • Option of using either the standard or button_count (small) display mode.
  • Customizable width and height.
  • The first included image of the post will be included on the liked page’s Facebook page.
  • Customizable placement of the button, which can be either at the top of your post, bottom of your post, or included using the php function me_likey_button(); in your theme files.
  • Ability to include the button within a post using the shortcode (BBCode) tag [like_button].
  • Ability to change the button’s wording to either “like” or “recommend”.
  • Customizable font family, including arial, lucida grande, segoe ui, tahoma, trebuchet ms, and verdana.
  • Ability to change the color scheme of the button to either “light” or “dark”.
