Adding a Facebook Like Button to your WordPress Website

Earlier today during the F8 Conference, Facebook announced some of their new social plugins that can be used through any website. I instantly got excited about this because now I can enable my websites with a Facebook Plugin that will allow viewers to not only share the specific page on my website they were viewing but also “like” it as well.

Installing this plugin on a static HTML website is quite easy, but installing it to work on a WordPress website, such as the website you are reading this blog post on, is a bit more tricky. I am sure that someone will quickly release a nifty plugin for WordPress that will make adding this functionality even easier but for now you can watch my tutorial and get it done yourself.

Items you will need:
A self hosted version of WordPress – http://wordpress.org
A FTP Client (Mac: Cyberduck, PC: Firezilla)
