WP Facebook Like makes it easy to integrate the Facebook Like button. Choose to automatically append the button before or after the content, or use a template tag to place the button where ever you want.

The button will automatically be inserted after the post, but if you want the button to appear before the post, change the color or make the plugin only show the button and no faces, make those changes in the settings panel.

To see all available settings, have a look at the options screenshot.

Note that WP Facebook Like currently only supports PHP5.
