Popular Post By Facebook Like


On WordPress you can order posts by date, title, random etc. but imagine you set a Facebook Like button on your posts and you want them to be ordered by the total likes number.

This plugin allows you to order WordPress posts by their Facebook Likes number.

Once installed the plugin, on every new entry you create, will be added a “_vfblike” custom field.

When you call <?php the_content(); ?> function, plugin will check and update like count of this post.


  1. Download Popular Post By Facebook Like Plugin

  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  4. Go to Appearance/Widgets to show your top post by facebook like count widget
  5. Enjoy!
