Hey Guys not a techie here, was over at the wordpress site looking for a good plugin to add a facebook like button for my site.  Lots of options but I can't settle on one, and was wondering if anyone here had one they would hands down recommend.  Thanks!

It would be best to do a plugin search for one.

Then look at the reviews and the number of stars it has, this should tell you if it is a good one or not.

Hi Jason,
welcome to the Forum!

I use a plugin called Sociable which can also add the Like Button to any part of your WP Blog it also adds the social bookmarks where and how you want them.

If you only want to add the Like Button you could try this one.

Facebook Like Button.
4 stars
Add Facebook Like Button to your wordpress blog with a lot of customization options, And you can preview the settings at real-time in the settings section. Add the button count, or normal by using short cuts [fb_like] [fb_count].

Add Facebook Recommendations Widget to your blog sidebar or to anywhere using this shortcut [fb_rec].

Mulitple language support, you can change the button language to your language in 3.4!

As Brian suggested do a plugin search from your WP Admin area and place Like Button as the search criteria for a list of what is available.

Regards

Ray

Thanks for the info guys.  I guess I was miss understanding what I was trying to do.  I wanted a like button on my main domain, and all the wordpress plugins are post or page specific.  So when I added the plug ins I couldn't get the like button to show on my main domain page, maybe it was just the way I had the home page configured.  So I did some digging...

Facebook has this nice little service that allows you to like a top level domain and the the like button shows up for each and every page.  The potential downside is that your visitors can't like individual pages or posts.  But since that's not what I was trying to do, it didn't bother me.  Here is the facebook page.

http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like/

So you create your HTML on the above page.  Then you just add a widget html text box on your side bar of your wordpress and add the HTML you created.  This adds a like button for the domain.
