Add a Facebook Like Box to your Sidebar

Have you wondered how to add a Facebook Like Box to your blog like the one I have in the sidebar? It’s pretty easy if you follow this steps.

  1. Go to the Facebook Developers page for the Like Box
  2. Copy the entire URL of your Facebook page  (example, https://www.facebook.com/#!/DesignbyThauna)
  3. Change the Width to fit your sidebar. I used 260.
  4. I also unchecked the “Show Header” because I am using a title on my sidebar widget.
  5. Click on “Get Code”
  6. There are three options across the top of the pop-up window. I use the iFrame because it has been the easiest and I’ve never had any trouble with it. Copy the code in its entirity.
  7. Go to your WordPress Dashboard to Appearance >> Widgets.
  8. Drag a Text Widget to the Primary Sidebar and copy in the code. If you want to use a header to match your other sidebar items type in a Title.
  9. Save.
  10. Check out your blog and view your awesome work and congratulate yourself.
