Adding Facebook Like to Blog Posts + DISQUS

  • Question

I like what DISQUS offers in the way of comments for your blog posts. But if I want DISQUS, is there any way to add Facebook Like button and/or "Share this" buttons to blog posts?
Can you have DISQUS & Facebook Like/Share This?

If you are wanting to add the Facebook Like/Share button to individual blog posts the good news is yes you can.I think adding the button is a great idea so I just tired it and it does work.

To get the button on an individual post requires you to get the url of that post.You will have to post/publish then go to the posted page and copy the url.Add the url to facebook and then get the code...I copied the I frame code and pasted to notepad
Go back to site builder to your blog page and open blog manager. Click the post you want the button on.
When the post opens for editing click where it says html and add your button code you have recopied from notepad then add it where you want

You are welcome and thank you too...As I said... great idea for individual posts and I will be adding this also.
On the Disqus side I don't see a way to use this feature....However in your DIDQUS profile you can choose to connect comments to many services such as Facebook for one.

Hey guys

I believe I have found an easier way to implement this for your blog post. You can add the iframe code in your blog manager settings, above the Disqus code.

I have done this and the "Like" button shows up on all the posts.

Please take a look at my test site: http://rumballchick.yolasite.com/blog3

I hope this works for you too!

That is fine if you want the URL to always be your main blog page and that may be fine for most....Either will work great but I made the button point to the actual page URL you get when you click continue reading....Not sure which is better for SEO but I figure both are good.
