  1. Excellent thanks, really simple!

  2. facebook add trick is not work on my google site.......

    1. When you copy the code, you must click on the iFrame tab, no others will work. I tried it on a couple of different Site websites and it worked. And when you paste it into your Site page, after you click the Pencil (Edit) button, you must click on the HTML button at the end of the toolbar. Good luck!

  3. I have tried a bunch of other things, and yours finally worked. Thank you so much!

  4. Like Box

    With the release of Graph API v2.3, the Like Box plugin is deprecated. Please use the new Page Plugin instead. The Page Plugin allows you to embed a simple feed of content from a Page into your websites.

    If you do not manually upgrade to the Page Plugin, your Like Box plugin implementation will automatically fall back to the Page Plugin by June 23rd 2015.
    The Like Box is a special version of the Like Button designed only for Facebook Pages. It allows admins to promote their Pages and embed a simple feed of content from a Page into other sites.

    1. The new plugins will not embed in Google Sites and Google Blogger. The plugins don't appear to have any iframe options? Do you know anyway around this?

    2. I'm also keen to find a way to do this, have you had any response Jacqui?

    3. No I haven't as yet, but I am still trying to find out. I will post update as soon as I know

  5. Any headway one this? Still can´t get it to work on google sites.

    1. No luck so far, but I will have another go at it in the New Year.

  6. I would love to see this working too.
