How to Add a Pop Out Facebook Like Box in Blog or Website?






If you wanna add a Pop-Out Facebook Like Box in your website or blog, first you must have a Facebook Page. If you already have it then it's OK. But if you don't have it, then create a Facebook Page with your FB account. 

Many websites or blogs have a Facebook Like box in their pages. But adding a Facebook Like box may consume valuable space. As a result, many people are no longer willing to add it. Pop Out  Facebook Like Box may be the solution of this problem. 

I'm gonna share a small script with you. By this script you can easily add pop out like box in your site. Just place the below code in the header of your page. I believe this simple code should work for all. 

And if you use this code on blogger then follow the steps below: 
  1. First sign in in your blog and hit on the design button from the top right corner.
  2. Then choose the layout option.
  3. Here you'll find several buttons to add a gadget. 
  4. You can choose anyone it doesn't matter. Click on Add a Gadget.
  5. Now you'll see a list of gadgets. Choose HTML/ JavaScript. 
  6. Then copy and paste the below code in the content box > Save > Save arrangement.
  7. Now visit your blog and see the result. 

<script
   type="text/javascript"
   src="http://www.monkeyphysics.com/fb-sidelike/fb-sidelike.js"
   fbpage='markstips'></script>

NB: Replace the red part of the code with your Facebook page name. 

Customization: You can't directly customize this code.

Because this code is just a script. The original code is located in the server. If you wanna customize this code then you must upload the original code in your own server. You can download the code from the links below: 

1. Code Script
2. Image 1 and Image 2

And if you use your own server then replace the script tag with you own server. 
I mean- src="http://www.monkeyphysics.com/fb-sidelike/fb-sidelike.js"

For your computer security you can set start up password. Whenever you turn on PC, Windows ask you to enter password. Then you enter password and get access to the desktop. And all of us know that it is a normal process. 

But, if your forget your password? Then what? 

You might think experts can easily break it and have access to the PC! And as you're not expert so enter the DVD in the drive and start installing Windows again. And you lose all of your files and folders that is stored on installation drive. 

But you can avoid such type of hazard very easily. I don't advise you to write down your pass in the diary or calender. Because this is not safe. Just spend few minutes to create a password reset disk. It's safe and easy. And there is no risk. Follow the steps below: 
  1. First make sure you've connected your USB Flash Drive in the port. You don't need to format the disk. And your files will not be affected. 
  2. Then go to the User Accounts from Control Panel.
  3. Now hit on the Create a password reset disk option from the left panel.
  4. You'll see Forgotten Password Wizard. Click Next.
  5. Select the drive that is to be used as reset disk. Click Next.
  6. Enter the current password if any. Otherwise leave it blank. 
  7. Click next and wait for the processing. Click Next again. Then Finish.
The disk is ready for use. Now open your USB drive and look for a 2 KB file named userkey.psw. This is the file that can help you to reset the password. Don't delete it. 


Now restart your PC and try to access by entering a wrong password. You'll see the Reset Password option. Click on it and type a new password. And from now you can use this password. 

You can change your password as many time as you wish by the same disk.

Caution: Anyone can change your password if he knows about your reset disk. So make sure that unauthorized person is not familiar with your reset disk. 

NB: This system has been tested on Windows 7 and 8. And it will work only on that PC from where the disk is created.
