Facebook Simple Like

This allows you to create a fan page like button that has none of the fancy stuff normally that exists: stream, profile thumbnail, name. Button only.

Want to boost your Facebook fan page subscription rate? This plugin makes what should be an easy task, but isn't, an easy one. It enables you to use a shortcode to place a small like button where ever you like without the clutter: stream, faces, count, and all of the other junk that comes with the "fan page like box" ordinarily. Basically, it generates a fan page subscription button that looks identical to the one ordinarily only for sharing a page (as opposed to actually subscribing to the page).


  • Create a like button that resembles the one that normally shares the current page (as opposed to subscribing to fan page).
  • Put the like button where ever you want using the [facebooksimplelike] short code, or an easy-to-use sidebar or footer theme widget.
  • Add the like button to the top or bottom (or both!) of all of your posts and pages with the click of a checkbox on the settings page.
  • Create like buttons for as many different fan page destinations as you like.
