Then numbers won't match unless it's coincidence, the one on your site is strictly for the site.

A Facebook like button (which I assume is 3rd party because Homestead doesn't have a like button, on SB+ anyway) is different than a Facebook Follow or Fanpage button. Like buttons show how many people like the page it is on or the page you specified vs. Fanpage/Follow buttons show/direct people to your Fanpage.

SiteBuilder Plus actually does have a like button. If you click insert, and then just hover your mouse over the Follow Us icons, you'll see it on the drop-down menu.



In either case the answer is the same. The like button will report the likes for the page(s) that it resides on but not your actual Facebook page.

Hmmm nice. A little off topic but how do I get the "make changes to all pages" button show up? I seen it once when I first downloaded SB+ but have never seen it since. That was months ago.

Great question. That button won't show up if a website was started on the desktop SiteBuilder since those templates don't have the "master template" feature. If you were to start a brand new site and pick a template from the new gallery in SB+, you would see that button.
