Earlier this week I started noticing the Facebook “like” button popping up on some of my favorite sites. And then, my co-worker Jonathan installed it on our site at work.
When I saw that… I knew I had to have it on my blog. Plus I knew I had to master it for some of my McLane Creative clients.
It took some fiddling around but here is how I’ve gotten it to work. Follow these steps and you can set it up in about 10 minutes.
Step 1: Download and install the free Thesis OpenHook plugin.
Step 2: After activating the plugin, go to the settings link for Thesis OpenHook. On my blog it looks like “/wp-admin/themes.php?page=thesis-openhook/options.php”
Step 3: Scroll down to the hook you’d like to install the code at. I’m using “after post.” But here’s a list of all the hooks and what they are.
Step 4: Paste the following code into the hook you’d like use.
