Add a Facebook like button that validates to your website

Facebook logoAdding a ‘Like’ button to your site is very easy but the code Facebook gives you doesn’t validate correctly. In this post, we show you not only how to add it with valid code but also make it load last so your visitors aren’t waiting longer than they have to for your content.

Instead of pasting the copied FB code directly into your page, use the following (stuffing your copied FB code into line 4).

If you’re not happy editing your website code, we would be happy to add this for you, simply contact us.

Many thanks to Tian Valdemar Davis for this elegant solution. He also posted a similar answer for Twitter’s tweet button.
