Sorry if this has been covered before, have had a good look & can't find any info on this.

I am totally stumped as to how I can link my facebook page to my Foliopic website - I want to put the Facebook LIKE button on my homepage. Any info much appreciated

Thanks Sarah

I have suggested that before, Sarah.
I was told it is in the list, so don't know when we will get that.

We will add a "like this" button soon

Can someone just go to my home page and try clicking the "like" button I've just added. This would be a temporary fix that anyone can do. The beauty with foliopic is that we have modules that can be added so anything's usually possible.

Alternatively why not add a share this button which opens it out to digg, linked in etc

Looks like you like button worked, but as with most things facebook it's hard to be certain.

It now shows that I like a link on my FB page, the link is as follows, and goes to the foliopic homepage:

Websites for Photographers and Artists | Professional Website Design Software for Photographers / Ar
Professional quality websites for photographers and artists.

Is that what you were after Cole and Sarah?
A Like This button on the home page that gets people on Facebook saying they like your site?

If so it's easy.

Go to the Facebook developer page for the Like Button

Scroll down to Step 1

Paste or key in your home page url into the "URL to Like" field.
Click on Get Code
Select and copy all the iframe code

In your foliopic admin page select Layout > Homepage Editor
Click and rag a content block to where you want the Like this button to appear.
Click on the Pencil (edit) icon) Change the Block Title to facebook or remove and leave blank
Click the Source button and paste the code you copied earlier into the box.
Click update
Click Save
The Like this should then appear on your home.

That's a good example Karl...the content blocks in foliopic allow you to add most things to make your site a little more unique than most.
