i'm following this tutorial: http://itc.webmaasters.com/nextgen-gallery-with-facebook-and-twitter-wordpress-tutorial-or-hack/ for implement Facebook Like Button on this plugin.

It's working very well, but if you like the picture, this "like" does not appear in your timeline on facebook. On the photo you see the "countdown" of likes, but it not appearing on timeline...

Any script that is missing so there is your "like"?

  • i dont think it´s possible... the like is made to like/share a post/page... it need the extra infos in header to work correctly... maybe if you can transform your lightbox gallery in iframes popup (with specific header for every image)... Aug 23, 2012 at 17:40
  • developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like you need the Open Graph Tags type: <meta property="og:tag name" content="tag value"/> Aug 23, 2012 at 17:41
  • i success add the button count on every photo, and the count works well. The only problem, thats the "Like" is not appearing under my Facebook Timeline.
