  • Hello DebNaples,

    This is Aaron with Microsoft Office 365 SharePoint Online Support.

    Did mch answer your question?

    Best regards,

  • Hi Aaron,  I haven't yet had a chance to try mch's suggested answer.  I am also in the midst of trouble shooting getting my personal business domain- tomlinsearch.com- verified so I can move it from Small Business Office Live to Office 365.  I have another question on that issue going as well.  For some reason I can't get Office 365 to verify my domain so I can move to the next step in that process.  Once I get that solved, I plan on working on the Facebook Like Button.  Getting my business email and web site going needs to get solved first.  Thanks for asking!  Have a great day!  DebNaples

  • Thanks mch,  I haven't yet had a chance to try your suggested answer.  I am also trying to get my personal business domain going. For some reason Office 365 is not able to verify my ownership of tomlinsearch.com.  So I have to figure that out first in order to get my business email up and going along with my web site. Once I get the domain issued solved, I plan to work on the Facebook Like Button.  Thank you for replying and having a great day.  DebNaples

  • Hi,

     

    All the steps that you will need to take are listed in the domains area of the Admin Portal.

  • Hi Tim,

    I did get my domain added.  My email and website are working great.  I haven't had a chance to add the facebook like button to my site. I didn't really understand the instruction from mch for adding the facebook button. So I am going to have to research that a bit more.  

    Thanks

  • Hi Mch- I figured out the process for the generator you suggested and it worked perfectly.  Thank you!  

  • I used the generator, but after following all of the instructions It still didn't work!  I have tried several times.  Any suggestions?

  • Hi Russ48,

    Below are the steps I took to add the Facebook Like Button to my business web page.  I think if you follow this step by step, it should work for you.  I hope this helps!  

    1. I went to this web page in the Facebook help area:  developers.facebook.com/.../like

    2. Under “Step 1 – Get Like Button Code”, in the “URL to Like” box, I entered the URL to my business’s Facebook page.

    a. Under the “Send Button (XFBML Only), I had a check mark in the “Send Button”box.

    b. Under “Layout Style”, I had the word “standard”.

    c. Under “Width”, I had “450”.

    d. Under “Show Faces”, I had a check mark in the “Show faces” box.

    e. Under “Verb to display”, I had the word “like”.

    f. Under “Color Scheme”, I had the word “light”.

    g. Under “Font”, I left that box empty.

    3. I then hit the “Get Code” button.  

    4. Another smaller window then opened which was entitled “Your Like Button plugin code:”.

    a. In that window were two separate boxes of code.  

    5. Leaving that web page open with the code generated by Facebook, I then opened a second browser window and went to this URL:  webbrewers.com/cata.aspx

    6. At this webbrewers.com page, in the box entitled “1/ Enter your code here:”, I copied and pasted the code from both the boxes from the Facebook web page that was generated by Facebook for my business page on Facebook.

    a. I first copied and pasted all of the code from the first box from the Facebook page.

    b. Then immediately below that group of code, I copied and pasted all of the code from the second box from the Facebook page.

    7. Once I had all the code in the Webbrewers.com  page in the box entitled “1/ Enter your code here:”  I then hit the “Submit” button immediately below this box #1.

    8. When the Webbrewers page repopulated/refreshed after I had hit "submit", I scrolled down to a box entitled “2/ Copy the code from the box below. [Select all / ctrl+c]” .  There I could see the new code that Webbrewers generated for me.

    9. While leaving the Webbrewers page open, I then opened a third browser window and went to the web page on my Office 365 Team Site where I am able to edit the specific page of my business web site where I wanted to place the Facebook Like button.  At the page, I did the following:

    a. I selected “Insert” from the top menu bar.

    b. I put my cursor in the spot where I wanted the Facebook Like button to appear.

    c. I then selected “More Gadgets.

    d. I then selected “ “PayPal”.

    e. A new smaller window then opened entitled:  “Add a PayPal button to your Web site” with a box for entry under it.

    f. In that smaller Paypal window entry box, I copied and pasted all of the code from the Webbrewers page that was in the box entitled “2/ Copy the code from the box below. [Select all / ctrl+c]”

    g. After all I pasted all the code into that smaller Paypal  window entry box, I selected “OK”  and the box then closed.

    h. –Very Important- I then saved this page I was working on, you know to save what I had just done with adding the code for the Like button.

    10. I then opened a fourth browser window and went to my actual business website that the public sees and  I went to the page where I had just added the code for the like button.  And the like button was there as it should be.  And it worked  as well. :-)
