  6. Select the Insert button.
  7. Preview or publish the page to see the rendered buttons.

Magic tag

You can use the [likethis] magic tag in both visual content and raw HTML editors to insert ‘Like this’ buttons. For example, to display buttons for Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus in a horizontal layout, use the following:

[likethis fb=true tweet=true plusone=true display=horizontal]

To show only Facebook and Twitter icons in a vertical layout use:

[likethis fb=true tweet=true display=vertical]
