Hi. I've been googling and I can't find a way to hardcode facebook likes into my single.php loop. It looks like they changed the formula for the like button, which definitely used to work. I succeeded in integrating twitter with my site in such a way. To my knowledge, the default code that facebook distributes from their site only works on actual sites not posts. I can't believe every single WP user out there is using the facebook plugin to have like buttons on their posts.
Thank you for your answers :)
