You can add to your signature or Display >> Homepage >> Generalities >> Message content and save.

Or you need any code?

To activate go to Admin Panel>General>Messages & Emails>Configuration>Messages>Allow HTML>Yes>Save

HTML pages management is in Modules. Scroll down the page to find.

In order to install the Facebook button, I first set up a page for my new forum using the "Pages" feature on Facebook. You do this through your main Facebook account. From there, it will walk you through selecting the look of the box and provide you with the code (I had to tweak my code as it didn't come out right).

I also went to Twitter and picked up a code from the account there. Then I created a sidebar widget on my forum and pasted the codes there. You can follow the link under my profile to the right if you want to see how it came out. :-)

I don't do code. Have a page on fb. I need to look into setting up html pages first. See what that's about. Thanks for this.

Having looked at this topic, I think I just need to create a widget with code for the facebook button. Is that right? Can i find that on my Facebook Page?

Facebook will create the code for you based on your specifications. Try this page where I created mine: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like-box

Ok found out how to do it.

Go to your Facebook Page, then Edit Page -> Marketing>Get a badge.

It gives you the code.

Then go to Widgets management in Modules. Create a widget and add the code. Scroll down to 'addition/deletion of personal widgets'. Click on the drop down menu, click facebook and add the widget. Job done.
