How to Add the Facebook Like Button in Thesis

Facebook Like Button

Facebook Like Button

Thesis is a great wordpress theme but it takes some getting used to. You are no longer editing a file called “single.php” you’re using hooks to add in content and change things around. To add the facebook like button in Thesis open up custom_functions.php in your favorite editor and add the code in this file. I couldn’t get the code to display properly here in this site.

This will add in the like button below your posts. It will not add it to your pages. I just wanted people to be able to like my blog posts and not my pages.

What do you think? Have you used it? I have added the like button below. Feel free to like this post :]

Yep there’s definitely a learning curve if you’re used to making themes the old fashioned way. Thanks for stopping by Ralph!

Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us! There are so many wordpress themes out there it would be nice if there were more people help us to figure them all out!

The facebook like button is great to have on your website, but I do worry about how much data it is providing back to facebook on my browsing habits
