How to add Facebook like box to blog?

In this article, what I am going to say is said by the article header. When I come around the GPF-Blogger:How do I?, I found a lot of questions on "How to add Facebook like box to blogger blogs?" Hence this article will be serving as the answer for those, hereafter.

  1. First of all, you must create a Facebook page. To create Facebook page, click here.

  3. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Infotron-Krishna-To-Spread-the-knowledge-of-Computer-Tricks/160743810652858
  4. Now go to Facebook developers page, where you can add the like box. Click here to go there.
  5. There, Paste your Facebook page URL instead of http://www.facebook.com/platform.
  6. Click on Get code. Now you could see a small window with three tabs. HTML5, XFBML, IFRAME.
  7. Go to IFRAME(Recommended). Copy the code.
  8. Now,
    • Go to Dashboard => Layouts => Add gadget => HTML/Java script => Paste the code => Save[New UI]
    • >Go to Dashboard => Design => Page elements => Add a gadget => HTML/Java script => Paste the code => Save.[Old UI].
Note :-
  • As Gadgets for Dynamic templates are under construction, it is not possible to have a gadget and you will not be shown up with Layouts or Page elements in New or Old UI respectively.
  • Therefore, use a page for gadgets on dynamic view as I have done. http://krishnainfotron.blogspot.com/p/our-gadgets-here.html
