Thanks guys, sorry it's been a while, I have been busy with other things of late.
OK, So I now know that it's not possible to just have a 'like' hyperlink without the facebook styling- OK, I can live with that.
So, trying to add the button into the correct position in my template now... I have tried the code given below:
<?php echo fblike_get_iframe(get_permalink($post->ID)) ?>
...to my page.php template, right after the "comment" section, although it doesn't seem to be working properly for some reason.
Only way I can get the like button to work is by auto-insert via the settings page for the plugin. However, the 'like' button likes the site index (homepage), meaning the same people, & number of people have liked every single post on the site.
Any ideas what the problem may be?
