Today Facebook updated the minimum supported plugin width for their like box widget to 292 pixels. If you had a like box on your website with a width of less than 292 pixels you probably noticed today that your website looks a little funny. There’s a once narrow Facebook like box venturing out to places it shouldn’t be.

The good news is that there is a quick fix. Just add this CSS to the bottom of your style sheet and you’re all set:

.fb_iframe_widget>span { width: your_width_in_px !important; }
.fb-like-box iframe { width: your_width_in_px !important; }

Obviously just make sure to replace “your_width_in_px” with the pixel width you need to use.

I did a ton of digging on the web before I stumped upon this so I figured I’d post it here in case it could helpful to anyone else.

Thanks to Ynhockey for originally figuring this out.
