Facebook Like Button

JQuery Plugins

A quick and easy way to include the Facebook Like button.

Allows you to pass in all button parameters along with optional meta/open graph tags.


V1.1 - Compatibility issue with IE fixed. The plugin now works the same with IE7/8, Firefox, Opera and Safari.

Also, Facebook javascript files are only loaded once when multiple like buttons are on a page.


$().ready(function() {  
	$('#facebook_like1').fbLikeButton({appId:'YOUR ID HERE', tags:{title:'title_tag', type:'type_tag', image:'image_tag', url:'url_tag', site_name:'site_name_tag', admins:'admins_tag'}});
	$('#facebook_like2').fbLikeButton({appId:'YOUR ID HERE', href:'',send:'false',layout:'standard',show_faces:'true',width:'450',action:'like',font:'lucida grande',colorscheme:'light',ref:''});
