OK, so I know some of you will have set up groups rather than pages, and will very soon find out that the Facebook Like Box widget works with pages only…

Do not despair, all is not lost!

You just need to set up a widget with some kind of image, and set it so that when clicked, your mini site visitors are transported magically to your Facebook group portal thing…

1. Add a Facebook icon image to your media library (http://yourminisite.thewahmzone.com/wp-admin/media-new.php)

2. Grab the URL of this image once it’s uploaded – (you only need the bit from /files/ onwards though)

3. Go to Widgets area, add a text widget (http://yourminisite.thewahmzone.com/wp-admin/widgets.php)

4. Set caption to something like ”Find Us On Facebook”

5. Paste the following code into the text widget, replacing the url with the one for your Facebook group, and the image url with the one from step 2.

<a href="your_facebook_group_or_profile_url" target="_blank"><img src="/files/...your_facebook_image_file" alt="" /></a>

6. Save the widget

7. Check it works – http://yourdomain.thewahmzone.com/

Et Voila! Job’s a good ‘un….
