How To Use Like Button In Your Blog

Hi! Everyone, hope you all are fine.
In this post I will tell you how you can use Facebook Like Button in your blog. Few people asked me how they can use Facebook like button on their blogger blog so here it is. If you don’t have a blog in Blogger then you can create it now.

1.       Go to your Blogger Dashboard –> Design –> Edit HTML –> now tick the Expand Widget Templates for the following blog in which you want to use Facebook Like Button.
2.       Search for the following code (to bring the browser search box press Ctrl + F or F3)
a)       If you want to use it before post and after title
<p class='post-header-line-1'>
b)       If you want to use it after post ends
3.       Now place the following code just after any of the above code
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
<iframe allowTransparency='true' expr:src='"" + data:post.url + "&layout=standard&show_faces=true&action=like&font=arial&colorscheme=light"' frameborder='0' scrolling='no' style='border:none; overflow:hidden; width:450px; height:70px;'/>
a)      Things you might need to change
(1)    layout=standard
You can change standard to button_count if you only want to show the button with no. of likes
(2)    show_faces=true
You can change true to false if you don’t want to show the face

You can change arial to
(a)    lucida+grande

(d)   trebuchet+ms

(7)    If you want to show Like Button in home page also then remove the following codes
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
4.       Now click on SAVE TEMPLATE, now check your blog everything is working fine
5.       Now everything is fine now again come to Edit HTML page for the same blog
6.       Now find opening head tag you will get it at the top of the page.
7.       Paste it just below the head tag
<meta expr:content='data:blog.pageName' property='og:title'/>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.title' property='og:site_name'/> 
<meta content='Your Profile ID' property='fb:admins'/>
