Any new updates on having a like or share Facebook button on individual blog posts.

Here is a site that has the links to many sites at the bottom of each post. I know it is not created in Yola. It would be nice to not have to add it to each individual post but have a way that it is always on each post. Does Yola have this option yet or even working in it?

here is the site that has what I want :)

Hello Katie

What might work is if you put your Facebook button on your blog settings where your Disqus code would go.

1. First, your site needs to be published.
2. Click on the "Blog Manager" button.
3. Click on the "Settings" tab.
4. If you have commenting code there, scroll to the bottom of the code, and you can there paste the Facebook button code.

This will put a Facebook button on the bottom of each of your blog posts.

You should try this on a test page first though!

OK I just tested the method Sanja suggests and it works great for the FB Share button......However the Like/Recommend button requires a specific URL for each button....I do this but it is a lot more work...I make a blog post then publish my site...Then I visit my published site and copy the now published url to create my Like button on FB.....Then I go back to site builder and edit my blog post....Click the html button on the post widget and add your code at the end for your text...Please do not forget to clean the code in Notepad before adding it to your site.

I use "addtoany" ~ It allows you to share with facebook, twitter, stumble, digg and 100's more.

1. Go here to get the code http://www.addtoany.com/buttons/
2. Definitly enter the page url (with the .php on the end)
3. Copy the code they give you
4. On your Yolasite, drag an html widget to your page
5. Paste the code

NOTE: The code will be different for EVERY page because of the page url.
A little bit of work involved but well worth the effort.

I have added a customized share button from this "addtoany" service
on my page here.

If you click on the blue + button, a drop down box will appear. The list of places that people can 'share' to goes half way down the page! Awesome :)

Hope this helps

Kelly....did you accomplish this for each post or just the static blog page?
