Okay I followed the instructions here:
and was able to remove the like button from a specific page. However it's not resolving the conflict with the "Theme My Login". (a MINOR conflict that only occurs when one logs out) So it occurred to me the easiest solution is to simply call the like button short code manually in my page template and then create a custom template for my login page which omits this call.
Here's the issue:
I added this to my template's page.php file
<?php sfc_like_button(); ?>
and got the following error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function sfc_like_button() in /home2/overthe4/public_html/clientYourPlateOrMineInc/wp-content/themes/ypom_custom/page.php on line 70
What did I miss??
