SNV Facebook Like Button


This plugin allows you to drop in a very simple widget that showcases the new Facebook “like” button powered by OpenGraph. When a user inserts this into their site, and a reader clicks the like button, their picture will show up in the space provided. Also, an entry onto the users “Recent Activity” will show that they liked your site\’s entry. Very easy to use, and very easy to implement. Options allow setting of the width and color scheme (light or dark).

This plugin is loosely based on ajb{log}’s “Facebook Like Button Widget” plugin.

Special Thanks to Amber Weinberg
for her contribution to the plugin’s core!


1) Download and install this plugin.
2) Activate
3) Set up the options (width and color scheme). Also, choose whether to insert the plugin manually or automatically at the end of the content.

If you set the option to Manual, use <?php if(function_exists('add_facebook_button')) { add_facebook_button(); }?> If you uninstall the plugin, this will ensure your theme still works.


Can I insert this plugin manually?

Yes! Use <?php if(function_exists('add_facebook_button')) { add_facebook_button(); }?>

Contributors & Developers

“SNV Facebook Like Button” is open source software. The following people have contributed to this plugin.


0.1a – initial release.
0.2a – fixed spacing issue both above and below
1.0 – first stable release – added manual insertion of plugin via function.
1.5 – added the rest of the options FB gives you (minus the button type – I like the faces, and that’s specifically what I designed this plugin to do).
1.6 – for some reason 1.5 couldn’t be downloaded so 1.6 is just a clone to resync the plugin repository.
