Faux Facebook Connect

Faux Facebook Connect is a basic integration to allow Facebook users to comment on a WordPress blog.

WordPress MU usage

This plugin can be easily implemented in a WordPress MU environment and run out of the theme context. In order to activate it and customize various options there are various filter hooks within the script.

Activation in theme context

To make sure the script loads out of a theme context or other urls use the fauxfb_plugin_url filter as shown below

add_filter( 'fauxfb_plugin_url', 'fauxfb_plugin_url' );
function fauxfb_plugin_url() {
        return get_bloginfo('template_url') . '/plugins/faux-facebook-connect';

Placing this code in the functions.php of your theme would cause the script to search in the plugins folder of the template for the faux-facebook-connect folder.

It could be activated by putting the following line in your functions.php file just after this call.

require_once( 'plugins/faux-facebook-connect/faux-facebook-connect.php' );
