How to Add a Facebook Like Feature

Adding a Facebook Like button onto your website allows your visitors to instantly 'Like' and 'Share' your Facebook Page, which can help strengthen your brand’s social media presence.

You can do this quick and easy with the Facebook Like Feature in Sitebeat, using the steps below:

  1. Log In to access the Sitebeat dashboard.
  2. Under My Sites, click the Edit Site option of the website that you wish to manage.
  3. Note: If you want to edit a new site, you have to unpublish the current website and make your new site as your primary website.

    Under My Domains, click the [...] Ellipsis Icon of the website that you want to replace as your primary website, then click Replace Primary. In the pop-up window, select the domain of the new website in the New Primary Domain list, then click Replace Primary. You can also click the Domains tab under My Sites to perform the necessary steps mentioned.
