How To Add a Facebook Badge to Your WordPress Blog

Its been a while since I took a look at the badges Facebook offers and voila! I find some new ones that could be very helpful. I’m going to explore more of them in future but for now I’m going to talk about Facebook Page Badges.

I found two types of Page Badges. The first is available only to owners and admins but the second is available to all, so you can get it for any page you want.

You can get the standard one Here.

Or you can get the Social Like Box Plugin

1. After you’ve chosen the kind of badge you want, you need to get the code for the page. For the Standard Page Badge select the “Other” option in blog type and copy the code. For the Social Plugin, select the options you want in your plugin (you will see the preview change) and then click on Get Code. Select the IFRAME option in the pop-up and copy the code.

2. Go to the Widgets section in your WordPress blog. The Widgets option is in the Left Column under Appearance on your WordPress Dashboard.

3. Based on your Blog Template you will see your Sidebars listed on the right of the page. I have three hence they are listed as Sidebar 1, Sidebar 2 and Sidebar 3.

4. Choose which sidebar you want the badge to show in.

5. Now drag the TEXT widget into the Sidebar and paste the code into the TEXT dropdown. (You can use a few HTML codes to create space between plugins and to add comments).

6. Click the Save option in the Dropdown and you’re done. Now check the widget on your blog to make sure it’s showing as you’d like it to, else change the options you selected and replace the code with the new code generated (only for social plugin).

And voila, you have a badge on your blog. I’ve added Chenthil’s Photography Page Badge to my blog. Like it? Please ‘Like’ the page too 😀
