Facebook Like Box WordPress Plugin
The Facebook Like Box plugin will add a widget and a shortcode to your WordPress site.
This WordPress widget allows you to add the Facebook Like Box to any sidebar on your site. When you add the widget to the sidebar you are presented with the different settings you can apply to the like box including:
- Widget title
- Facebook Page URL
- Width of the like box
- Height of the like box
- Like box color scheme
- Option to show friends faces
- Option to show page stream
- Option to show like box header
- Option to show like box border
When all the settings is setup correctly you will see the Facebook Like Box in the sidebar of your site.
The WordPress shortcode allows you to add the Facebook Like Box anywhere on your website where you can add content.
All you have to do is add the shortcode facebook_like_box to your content area.
[facebook_like_box page_name="http://www.facebook.com/coveloping" color_scheme="light" show_stream="0"/]
The attributes that you can set on the shortcode are exactly the same settings you can change on the WordPress widget page.
- page_name - The URL for the Facebook page you want to display on the Like Box.
- width - The width of the Like Box.
- show_faces - If set to 1 then faces that like your page will be shown.
- show_stream - If set to 1 then it will display the latest posts from your Facebook page.
- show_header - If set to 1 then it will display the header of the Like Box.
- show_border - If set to 1 then it will display the border for the Like Box.
- color_scheme - For the colour scheme two choices either light or dark.
