How to install and set up the Facebook Like module for Drupal 7

Step 1: You will first need to download the module to your local computer. You can find that module on http://drupal.org/project/fblikebutton.
Step 2: Login to the drupal admin panel.
Step 3: From the top menu bar, locate the Modules option and click it.
Step 4: You are now on the Modules List screen. Be sure you are on the List tab, found in the upper right corner of the page. Click on the Install New Module link found at the top of the page.
Step 5: On the module upload screen, click on the Browse button. From here, navigate to the folder in which the module is stored and click on Open. You should now see the path to the module in the Upload a module or theme archive to install.
Step 6: Click the Install button to complete the module installation and locate the FaceBookLike module in the Other category. Select the checkbox to the left of the module name and click on the Save Configuration button at the bottom of the page. Once it is enabled, scroll down to the module again and click on the Configure link that now displays on the right side of the module name.
Step 7: From here you will have two choices: Dynamic and Static configuration. Select which version you want to configure. The Dynamic setting means the like button will be used to like whatever page is showing. The Static configuration allows you to set a single URL for the like to reference, no matter what page the like button is on. Each configuration has its own settings to configure. Once you have adjusted your settings, click the Save Configuration button.
