How To Add A Facebook Page Plugin To WordPress

The Facebook page plugin (or like box as it used to be called) is a way to showbcase your Facebook page on your website away from Facebook itself.

In today’s video tutorial I am going to show you how to add the plugin into your site. The facebook page plugin is some code that needs to be ibntegrated and not a plugin int he WordPress sense.

The page you need to visit to grab your code is:

    I always use iframes and these kind of codes if possible (e.g. for Google Maps, too), instead of plugins, because I prefer to keep the number of the plugins used on my clients’ website as low as possible. So I use this method for years and I’m happy that you prefer the same, Neil.

    But let me add this: if you modify the header.php of your theme, you have to do the modification again if your theme will have an update. Instead of that, you can use a code insert plugin (e.g. Head & Footer Code), or just simply add the header code to a text widget as well – it’s also a good place, even if not right after the opening body tag.

      Hi Moni

      This is not a plugin in the WordPress sense of the word the terminology is a bit confusing

      I’m not a fan of iframes because of the unpredictable way things are displayed

      I did mean to mention using a child theme in he video but forgot

        Hi Neil,

        I also meant WP plugins (I know the Facebook Page is not) and I also use these FB codes. Sorry if it was ambiguous.

        Yes, child theme is a great way, too.

        Do you think that even a Google Map iframe can cause problems? And sometimes I have to insert other codes, too, like third party marketing software subscribe forms with iframe, no problem so far.

        Do you have any suggestions what to look for if I need to use iframes?
