Thesis Tutorial: Add “Facebook Fan Page LIKE Box” to your WordPress Blog or Website

In this Thesis Tutorial I show you how to add a Facebook Social Plugin for the “Fan Page Like Box” to your WordPress blog or website if you are using the Thesis Theme for that WordPress blog.  You SHOULD be using the Thesis Theme to follow this Thesis Video Tutorial. If you are NOT using the Thesis Theme then I have created a separate WordPress Video Tutorial for you here! This is a really cool plugin that will allow people visiting your WordPress blog or website to click the LIKE button for your Facebook Fan Page and see the pics of all the other people who have already LIKED your Facebook Fan Page which gives your Fan Page the Social Proof it needs to get more followers! That makes it easier for your Facebook Fan Page to have so much more exposure, credibility and visibility. You can find all the details for this Facebook Social Plugin  here in written form. However, my Thesis video tutorial shares some great information with you and makes adding the Facebook LIKE Box so much easier than reading the text.

Get your Facebook Application ID first!

Before you install this plugin, however, you need to create a Facebook Application or Facebook App and get an App ID. It’s sounds complicated but it’s really very simple and easy to do.  I have created a short video that shows you step-by-step how to create a Facebook Application and get an App ID here.   Once you create that Facebook Application and get that App ID you can come back here and watch this video to complete the steps.  It’s all so much easier than it sounds and my videos make it all very easy to follow. Enjoy!

    Importance of social media like Facebook and twitter is growing exponentially. For instance if you haven’t started using these networks it’s the latest time to do so. back in the days social media accounted for 5-10 percent of my website traffic but now this number has grown to 35-45% and still shows growth.

    Thanks Jim for the tutorial!

    Hey this is a great post. I love this article because it helps a lots of people to learn more on how to enhance and make a traffic on their sites. Facebook is one of the biggest social network right now so I guess this is a good idea to rank a particular site by adding a facebook fan. Good job!

    • jupiterjim Mar 17, 2012, 6:42 am

      I am sorry, I only work with WordPress. You’ll have to search in Google. Good luck!

    Thesis themes are priced heavily because you can get quality support and even free updates to the Thesis Framework which will continue to evolve.
    I’ve used Thesis at my blog too, but for me the Woo Framework suited me more. Now I use the Woo Framework from woothemes, and an attractive theme for it.

    Hi Jim, This is a page I must favorite and return to. I have long been focussing on my Google + account, but I know I am ignoring many potential blog visitors. Time to favorite…and learn from your tutorial.

    This is a nice tutorial. I liked the video very much. I’m a regular facebook user, and this should be very useful for me.

    Thanks for sharing.


  • Nichole Mar 18, 2012, 10:27 pm

    Thesis theme is one thing I would like to familiarize with next to Optimize Press.

    I do like your tutorials and the fact that it’s free!

    Thanks for sharing the video tuts.

    Is there any chance where I could download all the series of videos?

    • jupiterjim Mar 21, 2012, 10:12 am


      No place to download them all at this time. That will be a future project. Click on the YOuTube icon to take you to my YouTube Channel and all my videos are there in one place. I hope this helps.

  • Kenneth Mar 26, 2012, 3:21 pm

    Hi Jim, Facebook is becoming more and more a part of my online life these days! I have about 500 likes on my page now, but adding this to the sidebar could take it over 1,000 pretty quickly. Thank you!

  • Violet Jul 23, 2012, 10:38 pm

    Thanks so much! I’d had the widget for years but it started to act up and for the life of me I couldn’t remember how to reinstall it until I found your tutorial.
