Facebook Like Button Plugin

At first sight it looks like a simple plugin but it's a very powerful and flexible one which can for example be used inside a custom html module.

And moreover the author is answering e-mails very quickly to explain or resolve encountered problems.

Most social modules and plugins out there just draw a series of icons one after another.
I needed to be able to choose where to place each button; this plugin (along with other from the same developer) helped me getting the result.
Well done!

Just caught a Sep 15th update to the plugin and so far darn good. I had a previous problem with a similiar plugin..caused my blog page post to go blank but this one is working like a charm. I am working alot with facebook marketing and need something reliable. No need to buy facebook likes or facebook fans because you and I can just outsource fanpage creation.

Must say this. Absolutely amazing support I got on this one....
I tried pretty much all joomla 1.7 facebook like button plugin to find one who would work perfectly and ALL I tried had some errors and notices. But not this one, so i went with this but still discovered some bugs and missing featured. And with an directly contact to the author he fixed the bugs and built in xtra featured I asked for in a cpl of hours.... Simply amazing...

Another thing I like about this plugin compared to others, is that it's working with a content tag, so if there actually is articles where you DON'T want the like button, it's not a problem. I guess if you really want it in on every single article, one could override the article display and insert the tag in the display....

But most of all, amazing support... Thx

I like this simple plugin. It does what it says without any fuss. Too easy to implement. You can place the LIKE button anywhere you want and can configure it to be a RECOMMEND button also.

The feed back into facebook works fine.

I'm been messing around with other plug-ins and modules for several hours to get a simple like button. This one was up and running within 60 seconds! I do have to add it to each article, but that's easy enough.
