Sitebuilder Plus: Facebook Like Button

Sitebuilder Plus: Facebook Like Button
Here are instructions to get the Facebook like button on your website.

Grab the HTML code from Facebook

  1. Go to this website: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/r...


  2. Fill out "Step 1 - Get Like Button Code" to customize your like button.
    Note: Use your Facebook URL for URL to Like.


  3. . Then, click Get Code which will populate two segments of code that you'll need to add to your website. Make sure to copy both lines of code. Tip: It's a good idea to paste them into a notepad file.

Add HTML code to Facebook

  1. Go to or sign in to your website account.

  2. Click Websites Manager in the left navigation menu. Then, click Edit Site.




  3. Click Insert in the top toolbar. Select More from the drop-down menu. Then, select HTML.




  4. Then, click Enter or Paste HTML button in the HTML settings on the right.



  5. Paste the 1st segment of html code. This html code doesn't generate the Facebook button so it doesn't matter where this html box is located on your webpage. I recommend moving it to a section on your page where it is out of the way.


  6. Repeat steps 3-5. But, this time add the second segment of code you received. This is the code that will generate the like button so make sure to move the html placeholder box to the specific section on that page you would like it to appear.


  7. Save and Publish your website to see the Facebook Like button on your website.

Hope the helps

It may be me, but your instructions did not work. They are very detailed. I felt well-guided. There were steps that were not like my web design page beginning with Step 4. A large dialogue box appeared that left instructed me to type in a "snippet." And, then both boxes for the html code appeared on my published pages.

How can you add a "share" link to your website so that visitors can have the opportunity to send e-mail or other social connections about our website?

Social media sharing.


I would like to have a Facebook "Share" button, a Facebook "Like" button and a button to tweet thing to Twitter on specific images or articles on my website. I've added the Facebook and Twitter icons from the "Insert" function in Sitebuilder Plus but the Facebook one is just a like button for my overall site, not the specific item. And the twitter button just asks to follow me. Are these items available?

I followed all these instructions in detail. My Facebook plugin shows up but I am unable to click on it as a link. The cursor does not change when I hover over it. Can you help please, thanks!

I tried the instructions above. It seemed to work great! I saved and previewd the page and all was fine. Then I published the page and it was still there. Later I closed my browser and the next time I looked at my website the LIKE button was gone and then I logged into Homestead and it was gone there too.

I hate Homestead with a passion!!!1

When I added this an advertisement for homestead popped up at the bottom.  How do I removed this?  @chris3758, you probably just need to hit refresh.

I was able to follow the instructions to get a Facebook Like button and a Share button. However, there is no Facebook "F" icon to go with them. Where can I get that? All I can find is a png file, which Homestead won't let me insert on my website.

I want to add an image, but the only Facebook images I can find are png files, not jpg or gif.
