Facebook Shared Comments

Enables easy cross-posting of entries to Facebook, while syncronzing comments between the two sites.

  1. Upload the entire plugin directory to /wp-content/plugins/fb-shared-comments/
  2. Activate the plugin through the plugins directory in WordPress
  3. Get a facebook api key:
    • Visit the Facebook application creation page http://www.facebook.com/developers/createapp.php
    • Enter a descriptive name for your blog in the Application Name field. This will be seen by users when they sign up for your site.
    • Accept the Facebook Terms of Service.
    • Upload icon and logo images. The icon appears in News Feed stories and the logo appears in the Connect dialog when the user connects with your site.
    • Click Submit.
  4. Enter the API Key and Application Secret into the settings page for the plugin.
  5. Modify the tag in your theme to include the fbml namespace. In the default theme, you will need to modify header.html. It will look something like this when completed - you are adding the xmlns:fb part:

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml">
    
  6. Add this line to your comments.php, just under the 'You can start editing' line:

    <?php if ( apply_filters('facebook_comments', false)) { return; } ?>
    
  7. You may now cross-post to facebook using the new box on the edit entry page in WordPress.
