  • Iframe base URL:
https://button.like.co/in/embed/{{LikerID}}/button?iscn_id={{iscn_id}}&referrer={{referrer}}&type={{type}}
  • Widget base URL:
https://button.like.co/in/like/{{LikerID}}?iscn_id={{iscn_id}}&referrer={{referrer}}&type={{type}}

preview
number

Set to 1 to set the button to preview mode. This stop the button from automatically calling like.co API. Useful for develop/staging environment e.g. to prevent leaking dev server's address.
For testing purpose, you may use button.rinkeby.like.co instead of button.like.co
Example links:
In case of iframe sandbox, allow-scripts, allow-same-origin, allow-popups allow-popups-to-escape-sandbox, allow-top-navigation-by-user-activation, allow-storage-access-by-user-activation are needed for proper register/login functionality.

Extra feature for embedded Iframe

  • CSS Style
Embed the sample HTML and replace {{ src }} with the embed URL into your HTML, include the CSS code for recommended display style.
The LikeCoin button <iframe>'s src (especially the referrer param) should be updated to when the URL is changed. In case updating <iframe>'s src is not possible (e.g. for some SPA usecases), you may call postMessage() to the <iframe> with following payload to update the referrer.
{
action: 'SET_REFERRER',
content: { referrer: `${ newReferrer||window.location.href }` }
}, 'https://button.like.co'
